The beautifully finished Villa Burraco enjoys its majestic, elevated position offering breathtaking views across the gorgeous Algarve landscape towards the coast and the Atlantic. It is located close to the lovely market towns of Sao Bras and Loule. The semi-rural position of Villa Burraco offers the best of both worlds with peace, tranquillity and total seclusion yet an exceptional range of sports, activities and buzzing towns close by. With 4 beautiful bedrooms, this exceptional, luxury villa sleeps 8 guests in modern comfort.

Sao Bras is a delightful, pretty market town with a good range of shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, museums, and some lovely historical buildings. Loule is beautiful, atmospheric and boasts a fascinating history. It was already an important town in 715, and some historians put it back to 400BC. This bustling town offers excellent shopping, fantastic markets, excellent restaurants and wonderful art galleries.

Villa Burraco sits in fantastic landscaped gardens and promises an unforgettable retreat with unashamed luxury. With an exceptionally high standard of furnishings and fitting throughout the villa, guests can relax in true style in the generous spaces. The living room is drowned in gorgeous sunlight and offers sumptuous sofas, pale tiled floors, a modern fireplace and beautiful local artwork. Two sets of double French doors open to the terrace and swimming pool. With its circular granite table, the separate dining room is another elegant space though you are likely to enjoy most meals on the terrace enjoying the spectacular vistas. The kitchen is enormous, modern and incredibly well-equipped. With an American style fridge with an ice maker, a Nespresso coffee machine and even an orange squeezer so that you can pick the oranges from the garden orchard for your breakfast juice, the kitchen is a chef’s dream. The villa also enjoys a separate laundry room. Three of the villa’s four bedrooms are also located on the ground floor, with the magnificent master suite upstairs. Each of the bedrooms enjoys twin zip-link beds, which make up huge king beds. Two of the downstairs bedrooms offer an ensuite bathroom, plus there is a family bathroom. Like the rest of the villa, the bathrooms are exquisitely finished with beautiful tiling and excellent fittings.

The master bedroom suite enjoys stunning, far-reaching views from each of its two terraces, one to the east enjoying the brilliant morning sunshine and the other to the west. Guests enjoy cool cotton linens and fluffy towels.

Despite the outstanding interior, the highlight of Villa Burraco has to be the heavenly gardens, terraces and views. The terraces are made from local Santa Catarina handmade tiles and offer a wonderful alfresco lounge and dining. You will find beautiful lawned areas, sunbathing corners, a hidden ‘sundowner’ corner and an orchard where you are very welcome to pick the citrus fruits. You can always find a beautiful, quiet spot to enjoy your holiday read in peace. The swimming pool is very generous in size at 10m x 5m and enjoys the fabulous views across the countryside to the sea. There is a poolside shower and a barbecue for those delicious suppers. The sunsets from this fabulous garden are absolutely mesmerising.

You may not want to leave Villa Burraco very much during your stay through Sao Bras with its shops, restaurants and Saturday market, the pretty town of Loule and the gorgeous beach of Fuseta are close by.

Loule’s main church, Igreja de S Clemente, stands in the middle of a small square and to the left is the peaceful garden, Jardim dos Amuados, an ancient Arab cemetery.

Estoi is a fascinating little town hidden away a few kilometres from the Algarve coastline. It makes for a perfect home base while exploring the region, although there is not much going on in the village itself.

Estoi is simple and picturesque, with cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and terracotta roofs. You can begin your exploration of the region’s history right here with the Palácio de Estoi, an exquisite rose-coloured rococo palace which is open to the public and nowadays run as a hotel.

Close by there are also the ruins of a Roman villa dating all the way back to the 2nd century AD. But most of what you’ll be doing in the village of Estoi is relaxing and looking on as local life goes around you, as well as travelling to explore the Algarve on your own terms.


Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that.

  • Wish it could be forever!

    on 31/08/2023

    We loved our stay at Villa Burraco Faro and really didn’t want to leave. Everything is perfect, the Villa, the views, the facilities and Sao Bras. We are already booking for summer next year but next time for longer, wish it could be forever!

  • Lovely villa

    on 31/07/2023

    Lovely villa. Very private and peaceful. Great views. Exactly what we were looking for. Would love to book again.

  • We had a wonderful stay at this villa

    on 31/07/2023

    We had a wonderful stay at this villa, it met all our expectations. An extra bonus was the possibility to have a fence around the pool since we had a 3 year old with us. We will also give an extra thank you to Matthijs and Daniel for their excellent support during our visit.

  • One hundred percent recommended

    on 29/11/2022

    We, (6 adults and one 10-year-old child) had a fantastic time at the Villa Burraco Faro. The villa is extremity comfortable. The living area and the 4 bedrooms (all with on-suits) were fully airconditioned, pristine and decorated tastefully to a very high standard. The kitchen was very well equipped with every possible utensil and gadget ever needed. We loved the round marble dining table to the right of the kitchen. There is a laundry room at the far end of the kitchen, which has a door to the front garden. There are quite a lot of grounds around the villa, which are beautifully landscaped with lots of fruit trees, the fig tree in the left garden (in front of car parking area) was our favourite. The ripened figs were as sweet as honey. Look out for cute small chameleons on the trees in this area. There is a car parking area for two, possibly three cars with remotely controlled electrically operated access gates. We also helped ourselves to some almonds from a tree in the right-side gardens. We used the outside sitting area and dining table in front of the pool quite a lot. The pool was good size and surrounded by a Pool Guard removable fence with one entrance door at the shallow end. The pool guard spoiled the fantastic view a little bit as we sat outside. But as we had a child in our group, I think it was probably a requirement by Portuguese property rental laws. If your group is all adults, you can request in advance for it to be removed. The villa is very safe with electrically operated vertical shutters on all doors and windows, which you can open or close individually or all in one go by the master switch in the entrance hall. All doors also had a sliding hand operated shutters as a secondary safety barrier, they were all locked with no keys provided (except the sitting room sliding French door to the outside pool area and one of the ground floor bedrooms). The upstairs master bedroom has a large private balcony, which would have been great for private sunbathing but its hand operated shutter was locked with no keys provided. All doors and windows also have internal hand operated sliding insect screens. One hundred percent recommended for a fantastic, private, quiet and relaxing holiday.

  • Villa was beautiful

    on 29/11/2022

    Villa was beautiful, the gardens, BBQ area and pool were perfect, and the house felt spacious and luxurious. Good kitchen equipment. We had 4 kids aged 2-6, area was fully fenced and there was a fence around the pool too. Communication was easy. 7 mins from supermarket and a few local restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again.

  • Great place
