Located in Western Algarve, this hidden gem with its golden beaches, cobbled pathways and tranquil village centre is a stunning place to live. Quaint whitewashed houses, fishermen mending torn nets and colourful boats bobbing about on the waves are trademark characteristics of this coastal town, popular for its unspoilt beauty.
Living in Burgau
Life here unfolds at a relaxed pace, making Burgau the perfect getaway and an ideal location for a holiday villa or second home overlooking the Mediterranean. International investors exploring laidback stretches of The Algarve within easy reach of golden beaches and leisure facilities are making the most of the moment - affordable Burgau apartments and houses for sale.
This self-contained town has good shopping, wining and dining options. Among many cafes and restaurants we recommend Esquina or Restaurante Matias for traditional Portuguese fare and the Beach Bar where platters of fresh seafood provide the perfect accompaniment to a lively musical evening.
Blessed with mild winters and hot summers, Burgau is ideal for an active, outdoor lifestyle with plenty of leisure options including swimming, boating, hiking, cycling and beach volleyball.
Getting to know your neighbours here is facilitated by social evenings for tennis, badminton and table tennis. Burgau Football Academy gives children a chance to find like-minded playmates and test their newly acquired skills in local matches while exercise classes are available for all ages and levels of fitness.
For an entertaining day away from Burgau, head to the culturally rich town of Lagos, around 15 minutes away. Its ornate church, walled Old Quarter and historic fort are worth a visit. Nearby is the Vicentine Coast Natural Park, home to unique animal and plant species as well as rare birds.
We have a range of stunning properties for sale in Burgau. Several of the larger villas in Burgau are situated on the edge of the picturesque town and provide panoramic views of the countryside and Monchique mountains. Homes here are an easy walk from both the shops and beach.
If living in a contemporary development appeals, we recommend looking at the Domus Iberica development on the town’s outskirts. Here you’ll find a number of villas and beautifully presented terraced apartments. If you enjoy entertaining and prefer a more spacious home, the roomy Burgau townhouse with a courtyard are a very attractive alternative.
