Bed & Breakfast

A fab summer hideaway by a (night)-lively Algarvian village. Sundowners, a pool, massages, a BBQ...and talented English owners – great fun!


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


An exotic oasis that welcoming Ralph and Sally have spent years creating – the guest book extols its virtues. It’s top-drawer ‘Santa Fe’ – all chunky beams and tree trunk shelves. Designer Sally loves chunky jewellery and Ralph’s mastery of all trades includes carpentry; his are the wardrobes, tables and lintels. Relax in the lushly tropical grounds, enjoy a pampering beauty treatment or a massage under one of the gazebos, then pad across to the pool with its tropical waterfall, overlooked by a buddha and enfolded by night-glittery trees. The honesty bar on the top terrace is a great place to meet other guests – and locals too, who pop in for a sundowner. The bedrooms are stocked with all you could want; three are in the main house and one, beside the pool with a private terrace, is delightfully Mexican in style. Nearby Burgau, with its bars and restaurants, has kept something of its old fishing village character. But you may not want to go out when there’s a fabulous barbecue kitchen in the grounds for guests – you even get your own cupboard and fridge!

Absolutely beautiful! Sally is a wonderful host, the grounds are beautiful, the beach is close by or you can just hangout by the pool. We will be back!

Gayle, Phoenix

Absolutely superb place! We had a brilliant and relaxing time. Sally went out of her way. Gorgeous setting. The breakfasts were amazing (meats, cheeses, eggs, fresh fruit, gorgeous freshly squeezed juice, breads, jams... wow!). The pool is really pleasant - nice a large for a good swim, a tad 'refreshing' in April, but you soon warm up! The level of service, cleanliness, helpfulness and friendliness of Sally and her incredible assistant, Tanya, is superb. We also highly recommend Tanya's massage - 45 euro for a 75 min full body massage! Well well worth it! We will be going back for sure!

Adam, Manchester, uk

Every bit as good as the book said if not better, we had the pool room and it was fabulous, Sally and her assistant Laura were wonderful


Superb hideaway, lovely grounds and pool close to lively village with lots of bars and great food. Sally is a wonderful host, breakfast is delicious and rooms are lovely. Nothing is too much trouble for Sally and she is great fun. A lovely oasis! Jane & Lesley


An oasis of joy developed by Sally & Ralph - a more welcoming couple allowing you into their own home you couldn't wish for. Set in a delightful garden with a gorgeous pool and a cocktail cabinet to die for. Only a short walk from the centre of Burgau and a 10 minute drive from Largos for those wishing to experience a slightly busier shopping/dining experience. Would we return? ....... you bet!!
