Casa Grande
Ranked #4 of 4 Burgau B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 October 2011

We came for one night and stayed five, because everything was so nice and easy going.
Be sure to have answers for Sally's interview at the first breakfast (Where are you from? What do you do?) :)
Abundant breakfast, 5 minutes walk to beach and "city" center, nice italian restaurant at the side with very good pizza. If you're interested in a Fado-night: Sally will arange it.
We enjoyed our stay very much and surely will return.

We keep coming back every year and visited Sally's fabulous guesthouse many times. It is really unique and very charming. And there is no place we have found like that anywhere else. The days begin with a breakfast on a big table - always the best start into the day and many times we sit there for long. Just because it is always nice to get to know people that way. We met many special people and it is nice crowd of different people. Most of them come back as we do. Sally owns a very good Restaurant as well which is just beside the guest house in an old barn, very nice atmosphere and stunning food. Esspecially the chocolate desert is very good. But try her amazing fish dishes as well! The guest house is a very nice old mansion house. The oldest house in Burgau. It is absolutely beautiful and each room has another colour. Rooms have old Portuguese furniture. You really have to experience it.
And Sally anyway is the best host I have ever met - if you are lucky you get to see the treasure of the house, that Sally has found a couple of years ago... ;-)
There are many stories about Casa Grande.
We will always return to our favourite place.
Burgau is a very nice village which has kept the fishing village atmosphere. Sally knows all the deserted beaches around and will help with advice about the area.
Really there is no better place to relax. And have fun. And good food.

Just by chance we found this beautiful house while looking for a stay at the algarve for a few days. It was all we could hope for. A beautiful old house, a wonderful room (turquoise) with special character, wooden floor, old furniture and windows that allow you to see the blue sky and the trees. It was really nice to have breakfast together with the other guests - and with Sally, talking about plans and the best places to visit. It is a very indidvidual place, really worth visiting and probably the last place to stay if you don't want to live in one of the over-developed tourist resorts or uninspired plastic-hotels.

Our first time in the Algarve was a wonderful experience and staying at Casa Grande is an experience not to be missed. We had booked into the Mauve room and were upgraded on arrival to the Yellow room. Both were beautiful if not a little crumbling! Be sure to book double room if this is what you require, rooms may not be able to accomodate...The house is like stepping back in time complete with antiquities and rattling doors. Breakfast is at a large old table hosted by the wonderful owner Sally who's tales of local interest and tips on best places to go are both entertaining and invaluable.
A really special experience, highly recommended if you're bored of the generic hotel type trip.

Room Tip: Be sure to book double room if this is what you require, rooms may not be able to accomodate...

I stayed one week in Casa Grande working on a new novel, and Sally took care of me as if I should have been a baron!

LIVE LAUGH LOVE that's the motto of here - we found the house by chance - and did never regret. Everyone preferring sterile, business-like "plastic" appartements or hotels should avoid this house! All others should try the hospitaity, the very special charme and the exclusive company of Sally and her staff.
