Make a holiday rental home or villa in Cerro Do Ouro, Portugal your home away from home

The village of Cerro Do Ouro is a peaceful holiday destination, being close to the famous Portuguese holiday hot-spot of Albufeira, but surrounded by unspoilt countryside and around 6km outside of the city centre. This secluded nature of the village makes it popular with a wide range of visitors, including couples looking for a romantic hideaway and families seeking a ‘get away from it all’ destination that is not too far removed from the main attractions and beaches of the beautiful Algarve.

Things to do in Cerro Do Ouro, Portugal

                  I love this villa so much I've been coming every year for the past 6 years. I've been holidaying in Portugal most years for over 20 years and haven't found a more beautiful spot. It really is a five star luxury villa. There are many reasons why I've grown so fond of Villa Kela, here are just a few: (1) The Villa / its grounds are extremely spacious and always immaculately clean, maintained and well presented. The garden is simply stunning - as is the surrounding countryside. Some of the sunsets we've seen (whilst enjoying a glass of red on the upstairs balcony) have been breathtaking. (2) Although the villa is in a lovely secluded spot, central Albufeira / the nearest beach / a big shopping center are all within a 10 / 15 minute drive. The villa is well stocked with information brochures on places to go and visit too so real attention to detail is taken here. (3) I've mentioned above, the villa is huge - high ceilings, beautiful comfortable beds / furniture / bathrooms. It really has been lovingly decorated. (4) The owners are extremely conscientious and year on year they have kept improving and adding to the wide array of facilities / mod cons. Recently the jacuzzi has been added and the pool area has been completely refurbished and the end result is really fantastic. The pool is heated and there are plenty of comfy sunbeds to go round. All in all, I couldn't recommend this villa highly enough!

                  stunning villa in peaceful location

                  5 of 5
                  We stayed at this Villa in May for a week with 4 friends , and this was our 1st time in Portugal , Which was amazing .... This villa is absolutely gorgeous , and from inside the Villa to the grounds , we couldn't fault this ... it was spotlessly clean and everything you would ever expect and need from a rental property is provided . The owners and the team in Portugal who look after it keep the Villa in amazing Condition ..... We were aware before we went about the location being a bit remote and hiring a car would be best if we wanted to get around .. We hired cars and the directions given to us were brilliant .... we were also given by the owners advice of places to visit , and given recommendations of restaurants etc .... Thank You For this as it made our holiday so much more enjoyable and we will definitely be back here in the future ...,I would like to thank Ken for allowing us to spend what was an amazing holiday in their Villa , and we would def recommend booking this villa and is suitable for all types of holiday makers whether it be couples or families , as it has all the requirements you would need ...
