Make a holiday rental apartment or accommodation in Oura, Portugal your home away from home

Oura, or Praia da Oura as it is better known, is a fantastic family resort on the famous golden sand of the Algarve Coastline. Located near Albufeira, accommodation in Praia da Oura is a great base for cultural, sporting and lazy holidays on the beach. An Oura apartment is not set in a hot-bed of Portuguese culture, but is a very comfortable, clean and filled to bursting point with family friendly facilities, not to mention the glorious beach of Praia da Oura.

Things to do on holiday in Oura, Portugal

Accommodation in Praia da Oura has become so popular due to the amazing expanse of soft, golden sand upon which the resort is built. The name Praia da Oura actually means ‘golden beach’, and there is little more you can say about it! There is always plenty of space to find on the beach, although the western end can get busy around the bars and restaurants built at that end. The amazingly clear, blue waters of the sea almost always offer perfect conditions for water sports, and you can organise windsurfing, sailing, jet skiing, parascending and scuba diving from accommodation in Praia da Oura with ease. You can also get a range of boat trips up and down the coast from here, or get pulled along behind one whilst trying to remain seated on a huge inflatable banana if you like! Deep sea fishing trips are particularly popular from an Oura apartment.

There is plenty to do within Praia da Oura too. The resort centre is filled with shops, bars and restaurants which serve dishes ranging from local delicacies to international cuisine. There are even bowling alleys, a bingo hall and a range of excellent nightclubs. There are also communal swimming pools, fun slides, gyms and tennis courts for your enjoyment within Oura.

There are some fantastic walking routes in the proximity of accommodation in Praia da Oura. The town of Albufeira is easily within walking distance, and from there, you can either latch onto the coastal path which extends along a huge expanse of the Algarve coastline, or you can head inland, to discover the blissfully natural area of grove covered hills.

Great location close to everything but quiet too

5 of 5
This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this apartment and as a family of 5 the apartment and location ticks the box perfectly for us. The apartment is very close to the beach (s) and if you like the night life of the strip, it's a 5 minute walk away. Don't let being so close to the nightlife put you off thinking it will be really noisy because its not! The apartment is situated down a side street which is away from the main thoroughfare and is honestly very quiet. There's a supermarket which is very well stocked with good prices just a couple of minutes walk away as are cafes and bars. On both visits we didn't have a car and for us this worked perfectly. The old town is a good 30 min walk away, bit of steep hill on the way back, but a taxi ride back is not expensive. The apartment is well equipped, great air conditioning throughout, with three bedrooms and having two good sized bathrooms is a bonus not to mention the wifi (a must for the teenagers LOL). The view from the main balcony is lovely and sees the full afternoon/evening sun too. The smaller balcony off the main bedroom sees the morning sun. Julie is very helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had prior to arrival. Terry who managers the property (meets you on arrival) is very helpful too. The shared pool is a very short walk from the property (just round the corner) its a pretty setting, not loads of sun lounges but there's a big grass area so lots of room to layout (trees too should you like to sit under the shade). There was one potential hiccup which Julie made us aware of a week prior to our arrival regarding access to the shared pool but this was thankfully sorted for the duration of our stay. This is a great apartment I would highly recommend staying as you wont be disappointed.
