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.

Fantastic villa in a fantastic location!

5 of 5
Just returned from a week at Villa 81 with my husband and two sons (11 & 14) and have to say we were very impressed with the accommodation, pool and location! The owners Alfredo and Helena were brilliant at providing us with the required information and assistance to make our trip as enjoyable as possible. The private transfers through Jorge and their recommendation were also great. Would happily return to this villa as it ticks all the boxes!

Great location lovely apartment

5 of 5
We used a hire car to get to Albufeira and as we had stayed nearby previously had a good local knowledge. Access to the apartment was very easy and the instructions provided were clear and easy to use, on arrival I received a text message from the property manager Sonia to ensure that everything was okay! There is an allocated parking space linked to the apartment within the underground car park however we chose to use the outdoor parking bays instead as the underground park was tricky to access through a very steep narrow drive, although not a problem as we were able to park close by anyway. The apartment is very nice and spacious with everything you need - even a washing machine! there is UK tv channels available within the comfy living room and a well fitted out modern kitchen. The bedrooms are also spacious with comfy beds (doube in the master and two singles in the second bedroom) there is also a safety deposit box in the master bedroom, the apartment is very close to all the local amenities - Oura Beach is a must with a lovely beach bar serving great food! There's a supermarket 100m away and a great selection of bars and restaurants across the street. During our stay we also went to Villamoura where we had ice cream on one of the many decks by the marina whilst we gazed at the beautiful yachts, we then went to the Albufeira Shopping Centre which was about a 15 min drive from Albufeira - here they had a great selection of shops from clothing to technology (the girls especially loved Zara!). For the first time we also took the opportunity to sample the Splash and Slide waterpark which was about a 40 minute drive from the apartment - at 96 Euro for the family of 4 adults it really was money well spent as we had a ball! We'll definitely use this apartment again.
