The space

Burgau is not just a small fishing village, it is a way of life.
I work as a digital curator/editor and graphic designer thanks to an online international print on demand publishing platform. I am also an architect thus our home was entirely renovated to meet passive energy savings criteria as well as give us the kind of space we enjoy: open, functional and most importantly a space of creative hospitality! We have a sleep sofa in an area which can be closed off from the living room with large sliding doors (see fotos). The bath is shared. Ideal for someone traveling alone who would prefer to be hosted creatively with a resident.

As your host I can say that I am an inspired chef, a voracious reader, and hope to inspire other creative producers to benefit from getting away from the city to reflect, revive, and deepen their passions and convictions. We also have a small studio space with internet which we can share with our guest. I am fluent in Portuguese, English, French and Spanish.


Unavailable: Essentials
This host may not provide some essentials, like pillows, sheets, soap, or toilet paper.

House Rules

we conserve water, it is a precious resource... Smoking is allowed but encouraged on the terrace since the weather is great most of the time.

Madalena and Andre's place is a great little retreat in Burgau. You'll find yourself watching the sea from their window (it feels like you're basically on it you're that close) and when you're doing that you can just go for a swim in it. I spent my time with Andre, Madalena's so…

Great apartment, fabulous view, and though Madalena wasn't there to greet me her son André was, and was a great host. He showed me around Burgau, we had some nice meals together with great conversation. I think this is a special place.

WAW. Without a doubt, Madalena and her son André are the best hosts you can imagine. We were able to check in a day earlier and received a warm welcome. We had very interesting talks with Madalena, her son and friends that we will never forget. The surroundings are beautiful and …
