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

Many people head to Cerro Do Ouro simply to relax. The village is small and largely populated by locals rather than tourists – giving it an authentic feel of real Portugal. Amenities are basic, but there are many more cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets to be found in the neighbouring villages.

Although the use of a vehicle is recommended to make the most of your stay in the village, you could, of course, simply decide to spend your entire stay within Cerro Do Ouro; with days spent walking and hiking in the surrounding countryside and nights relaxing in your holiday villa with a glass of local wine.

Cerro Do Ouro can also be used as a base for a beach holiday, with the nearest sandy stretches just 7km away, and a total of more than 20 to be found in the Albufeira region alone. The city of Albufeira has much to offer, blending together a beautifully-maintained old town and a thriving modern resort. Local bars, pavement cafes, top-drawer seafood restaurants and a classy marina are some of the main attractions here, but there are many more depending on your interests.

                    From the moment I submitted the enquiry it was clear we were in good hands, the booking process was swift and easy and the information provided was thorough to say the least. We were greeted by the villa manager, as promised at the agreed location and escorted to the property. The villa itself is stunning, very well looked after with luxury furnishings throughout, the owners have included everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday, including directions to the nearest shops, restaurants etc which is a real help when in a new area. The terrace and pool are perfectly positioned to soak up the sun all day, the surrounding gardens are well tended with a wonderful stock of plants, it really is a private and peaceful spot. To sum up Villa Laurena, it is "Absolute Bliss" thank you.

                    Lovely place to stay, peaceful but close to busier places,close to Albufeira and Praia da oura. Owners are helpful but unobtrusive. Need a car, but this allows access to some beautiful nearby places. Very tranquil garden, sufficient living accom..Nice villages within walking distance. Would my wife and I stay there again, we can't wait,thankyou Humberto & Maria, the lovely owners.
