“Relaxing and comfortable place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We stayed at Vila do Ouro for 10 days in apartment de luxe with two young kids. The apartment was clean, cozy and comfortable with a nice private terrace. The villa do Ouro complex, garden and pool area are well maintained and give you a real holiday feeling. You can escape from all the hustle but are close enough to everything the Algarve has to offer. Linda and Joris were perfect hosts and they were always available for help or suggestions. We recommend this place for everyone looking for a relaxing family vacation.

This holiday parc is well situated for trips in the Algarve. Not to close to the beach, so you have no noise of other routiers. The owners are very friendly and helpfull. Everything is very clean and we felt very comfertable. Especially the appartment luxe can be reccomended.

Arriving at Vila do Ouro you will get a warm welcome from the owners, Joris and Linda.
During your stay they will leave you alone to enjoy your stay in tranquility, but they are always available for help or good advice.
We totally enjoyed our holiday in the beautiful resort, surrounded by a wonderful flower garden. If we were tired of playing tennis, we took a break in the swimmingpool or at the nearby beach.
We would recommend this place to everybody who likes to enjoy a holiday far from the mass-tourism, but close to beautiful nature and culture.

We have stayed twice at the Vila do Ouro and next time, we are going to stay even longer! This is absolute peace and tranquility with fabulous landscaping and wonderful hosts, who know how to stay out of your way while still being there to answer questions. We have had the same bungalow, number 9, each time we have gone and it is like our home away from home. We love the Vila do Ouro and look forward to our 2009 return.

  • Liked — Peace, serenity, landscaping, privacy
  • Disliked — That we could not stay another week! (Our fault, not the property owners)

This was our first visit to Portugal and the Algarve. We went in April in the hope that we would experience nice weather but not too hot. With the exception of one rainy and one cloudy day out of ten, the weather was perfect for us.
The welcome and mini tour from the owners was nice, and from then on we were left alone to enjoy our surroundings. Knowing that they were available to us if we had any problems or sought any local advice.
We seemed to have exclusive use of the pool and the tennis court. The surroundings were perfect and located only approx 15 mins away from the major towns and beaches by car.
Overall a great place to relax, and Unwind.
Although our two young teenagers still found plenty to keep themselves busy as well.
The accommodation was clean and offered everything we required.
Overall we would definitely return to the Villa.
I am considering returning with my eldest son only to enjoy the golf courses!

What a great place! Me and my friends stayed there two times in December to enjoy our christmas vacations and we just loved it! It has a wonderful price for the conditions that are offered. Although it was chilly, some of my friends had the courage to dive into the swimming pool. We had lots of activities to do there, including free tenis courts. When we needed extra towels the staff was extremely helpful and nice! But on the down side, it's a little far from the beach if you are considering going there in the summer... I absolutely advise you to try this great place!

  • Liked — Practicly everithing!
  • Disliked — The location is a little bit far from Albufeira...

We booked to stay at Vila Do Ouro back in April this year and was recommended to us by a work colleague.Our main purpose to visit Portugal was to attend a wedding in Falesia but we wanted to stay somewhere peaceful and not in a built up commercialised area. Thank goodness we found Vila Do Ouro. It is such a quaint place; Joris and Linda couldnt be more helpful from the booking stage - we emailed regularly so felt we knew them before we arrived. During our stay there, they were friendly from the onset and were always around if we needed anything. They were the perfect hosts so much so our children didnt want to leave when it was time to go! The furnishings in our studio were clean and fresh (very Ikea-ish) and plenty of hot water whenever. We didnt get a chance to use the tennis courts or the barbeque areas because of our wedding commitments but will definitely return hopefully next year.

Stayed July 2007
