This week’s Sunday Photo is a throwback to my summer holiday last year, with a picture taken from a balcony overlooking Burgau beach.
We always spend our family summer holiday in Burgau, a small village on the Algarve in Portugal. Although it’s become busier over the years, it still retains the fishing-village charm that it has always had.
Over the years, we’ve stayed in a few different apartments and villas, but we keep on coming back to Casa Praia. That’s partly because of this view, from the balcony leading off from the living room. I always look forward to the first sight of the sea when we reach Burgau.
The location is perfect, because we’re literally two minutes walk from the beach and right by all the restaurants. And because we’re so close to the beach, I can hear the sea as I drift off to sleep each night, and first thing in the morning.
