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

                      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa and surroundings are very peaceful. The villa was immaculate. Probably a bit too big for Just the 2 of us plus the baby. 100% highly recommended

                      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.
