...on Burgau.
Jackie Teasdale made the move to Burgau last July, in the peak of the summer, leaving behind a life in the UK. She chose the little western
Algarvean village because it is unspoilt and you can still stroll around the streets enjoying the atmosphere without being consumed by tourism.
Only a ten minute drive into Lagos, it is in Jackie’s opinion, one of the best towns in the Algarve, with everything to hand. According to the sign
on the way in, Burgau has 7.000 inhabitants but it is hard to believe they live here all year round.
