The Algarve region
The Algarve is the name of the southern coast of Portugal, incorporating, amongst others, the towns of Faro, Lagos, and Sagres. The region's administrative centre is the town of Faro, which has its own international airport.
The Algarve is a popular destination for tourism, primarily because of its clean, warm water beaches, Mediterranean climate, safety and relatively low costs. The length of the south-facing coastline is approximately 155 kilometres. Beyond the westernmost point of Cape St Vincent it stretches a further 50 kilometres to the north. The coastline is notable for picturesque limestone caves and grottoes, particularly around Lagos, accessible by powerboat.
Praia da Marinha, Lagoa was classified as one of the 100 most beautiful and well preserved beaches of the world. There are many other beautiful and famous summer places such as Albufeira, Vilamoura, Portimão, Lagos, Armação de Pêra, Quarteira, Monte Gordo and Tavira.
Vale do Boi
Burgau is situated on the Western side of the Algarve on the edge of the National Park. It is a working fishing village with winding cobbled streets and fisherman's cottages. Situated approximately 12 km from the historic town of Lagos and 24 km from Sagres. Sagres is the most south-westerly village in Mainland Europe.
Although Burgau is a small picturesque village it has 2 supermarkets, various bars, (including a beach bar) and several restaurants. Formore night life then Lagos is a 15 minute drive away From Burgau you can travel in land and see spectacular countryside where time can stand still.

"Beautiful, spacious villa in a stunning, rural location"
Just returned from a wonderful stay at this villa. The location is fairly rural (it was about an hour from Faro), but perfect if you're looking for peace and quiet in a tranquil setting. It was about 10 minutes by taxi to the lovely beach town of Bergau (around 10 Euros), slightly more to Luz (around 12 Euros) and for those looking for a more lively destination, Lagos was roughly 25 minutes away (23 Euros). We used a local taxi firm recommended by Dave who were familiar with the area as it was a little tricky to find the villa, but we all agreed the prices and service were great.
The villa itself is very large and was more than adequate for my family of 8 - no fights over bathrooms (there were 4) or sunloungers (8 available) or even the bedrooms, all of which are large and beautifully furnished/decorated. The pool area has fabulous views over the hills, as does the roof terrace and the pool was an excellent size. There were plenty of inflatables/balls for use in the pool which my family made full use of. The kitchen is well equipped, with plenty of pans/crockery/utensils/glasses etc. Towels were provided, both for the pool and in the bathrooms, so no need to weigh your case down with those. All in all, a fabulous place to stay and would definitely recommend!

When we arrived it was just as looked when i was searching for a good size family villa. It definitely had the Wow factor, everything was perfect for a relaxing and peaceful break.
The Villa is well equipped even the BBQ area has all you will need.
The pool was great and a good size and all set in beautiful surroundings.
Dave & Mandy were the best hosts and nothing was too much trouble.
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone and i myself have stayed in many different villas from the Canaries to Ibiza ( we got married there and i dont think my wedding villa was as good!!) Great place and we loved it so will be coming back for sure. Only down side is having to leave!

"Lovely villa in great location."
We were a group of 8 - two families, both with 2 children under 5 and we had a wonderful stay at this Villa. It was in a beautiful, quiet location yet just a short drive from some wonderful beaches, all with great facilities. The villa had everything we needed and David even provided some toys at our request, although we hardly needed them as the kids were in the pool all of the time. There were plenty of towels and clean bedding and lots of room so that we never felt cramped at all. Would definitely recommend the villa and visiting that part of Portugal.

"Peaceful location, wonderful veiws, great villa !!!"
Well what can we say, villa is perfectly situated within drive distance of 5 - 20 minutes of fantastic beaches and hidden coves, this area cater s for everyone, from local cuisine to those that enjoy their flavours a little closer to home. Local supermarket only 5 mins away, great selection of food available, and can speak English, but a little bit of local lingo can go a long way, even if its poor (like in my case).
Dave and Mandy are perfect hosts, certainly not intrusive, but on hand for help and advise of local area and best places to eat for your taste, very friendly couple, and have 3 gorgeous dogs that will quickly become your friends (if you want of course), you're neighbours, and that's how your made to feel, so very very welcome.
To sum it up, beautiful well equipped villa, with stunning views, a healthy approach to a stunning environment, great hosts, and a beautiful country, just wait until you hear the cows and goat graze in the morning, and the frogs in the distance at night, we can wait to go back.........this year.
I would say this villa is perfect for families with children, a couple or couples, and certainly somewhere to have a great party week. I don't think you'd regret booking Rosmaninho, I certainly didn't and will again.
Thank you Dave & Mandy for all you did for us, Dave for your help with the ash situation, and Mandy for the gorgeous wine. xxx

"Wonderful Villa with Stunning Views"
We have stayed in a number of villas in this area and this year was our first stay at Villa Rosmanhino. I have to say this villa is now our favourite, it has stunning views and is in a perfect peaceful location.
The pool is a great size and just the right temperature with plenty of sunbeads around to chill out with a good book whilst watching the children splash. The bbq is brilliant and the villa itself is very well equipt with everything you would need.
Dave was a perfect host and is as attentive as you want him to be.
The villa is 5 minutes from the local supermarket and there are many beutiful beaches a short drive away.
We would highly recommend Villa Rosmanhino and can't wait to go again. Maybe next year!!!??
