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

                      A beautiful villa. My daughters told me it was like a house in the TV programme Cribs. I belive this is a compliment. The decor and facilities are well kept and and of a very high standard. The pool and gardens are well kept and private. The villa manager Nuno was very friendly and easy to contact. Ken the villa owner could not have been better, he provided loads of useful information and contacted us several times to assist with the booking and gave us a full briefing prior to our trip. As long as you are aware that the property is quite isolated and off the tourist route this place is perfect for a family getaway.

                      We had a lovely time, so restful. We all loved the pool and hot tub. Ten minutes to supermarkets, 15 to the beach. Superb stables with excellent hacking, sea fishing and rope park all less than twenty minutes away. Water park half an hour away. We have applied for next year, fingers crossed!
