ALBUFEIRA - Praia da Oura:
It's hard to be in a more central position here as the famous "strip" of Montechoro is literally 10 metres away! Accommodation units are basic and because of the propertie's location this is definitely recommended for those who prefer a lively budget holiday.
Studios are bedsitter type (for 2 persons) and are open plan with twin beds (stone based beds which cannot be moved), equipped kitchenette, TV and bathroom. Apartments (for up to 4 persons) are similar, but have separate twin bedroom and living room with convertible sofa bed. Not all the accommodation has balcony or terrace. No air-conditioning.
Private bungalows (1, 2 and 3 bedroom with capacity for up to 4, 6 and 8 persons, respectively) are spacious. One bedroom bungalows are duplex style (separate bedroom on mezzanine level) with sofa beds in the ground floor lounge, kitchenette with microwave, satellite TV, open fire, private terrace and garden. Two bedroom units are on one level and are otherwise similar to 1 bedroom units. Larger 3 bedroom units have both duplex and one level designs. The bungalow units are air conditioned.
Note: Some of the bungalows are open plan and some have steep steps to the bedroom area.
* Some facilities may incur a local charge.
Bob says: "Location, location springs to mind here! Right in the heart of the resort, Vilanova absolutely appeals to those who enjoy lively holidays."
