“Quirky and Cosy”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

I stayed here with my other half, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is very much decorated like an old English manor, transported to Portugal. It is simultaneously spacious and cosy.
Sally is a wonderful host; very accommodating and puts on a lovely continental for breakfast. She will regale you with tales of the house and her children and make you smile - all before 10am (though breakfast only starts when you want it to! No obligatory 7am starts here). Guests sit around one big table for breakfast.
We stayed in the yellow room which had lots of space - the bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in and we're planning to switch our bed at home to one similar now! The room was fantastic and had a balcony.
Sally knows the area very well and can always recommend places to see, eat, and party. It's a stone's throw from the beach, local supermarket and bus stop, so an ideal location.

Room Tip: Yellow room has a very comfy double bed

Unfortunately, this time, we could only stay one night in the Casa. Sally is a wonderful host. Her policy is very much 'Mi Casa, es tu casa'. She effortlessly makes you feel so welcome and at home. It was very pleasant to be woken to the sound of laughter which came from the dining room and it was great sitting around the one table with the rest of the guests and Sally sharing stories over breakfast. If you're looking for a four or five star B&B look elsewhere, but you won't get the hospitality or experience of the Casa. Thank you so much Sally, we will be back and hopefully for longer, next time.

We had a great time at Sally's villa in Burgau, Portugal. The house is near the beach and the place is simply breathtaking. Me and my girlfriend enjoyed Sally's company during our breakfast very much. We got to meet many interesting people at the place.
Our room was very spacious, clean, charming with a romantic touch and cozy.
We didn't expect this. Thank you Sally! Carrie & Caro

My boyfriend and I were staying elsewhere in the Algarve but turned up to find the place was not at all as we had expected and we fled. We couldn't find anywhere to stay and just as we gave up hope we stumbled upon Burgau and met the inimitable and wonderful Sally who magicked a room out of this air for us although she had a full house. She was so helpful and kind and accommodating, not letting us stay anywhere else and finding a way to fit us in for the duraiton of our trip.

5 mins from the beach, the house is wonderfully eclectic and very much like a family home, with a delicious communal breakfast meaning everyone gets to know one another. Sally is super friendly and great to hang out with and has made a very characterful and special place in this very pretty little beachside town. Sally really lets you do what you want, borrow what you want, it is very relaxed and lovely.
The rooms are very homey and comfortable, colourful and each has its own little kettle with tea and milk which is nice and thoughtful.
She turned our trip around completely and we are forever grateful! We will definitely go back.

Don't miss this very unique experience of staying at Sally's Casa Grande. She in herself is worth the stay. The manor house brings you back in time. It's a peaceful environment and very conveniently located. A special thank you Sally on my behalf.
