    September Sunset September is a good month to take sunset pictures. We have made two this week, just with a mobile phone. One in Faro, one near Aljezur. If you fail to make a good one, than just go for the next day. The sun shines here yet almost every day 😀 Top of page
  • Autumn22 September 2015

    Autumn Autumn may officially have started, but summer still continues in the sunny Algarve! Over here temperatures around 30C, no wind, no clouds. The days are becoming shorter, that's how you notice that autumn has begun.... Our pools have 26C, thanks to our ecological heating system. Without this pool heater, the pool water would have had 20C. The pools run totally on sun power, no electricity is involved in the filter system. Top of page

    Art-Algarve Franciëli, who is doing all the cleaning at Vila do Ouro, is always improving her skills! Look what she was doing with the towels today (picture)! Great art! Probably the wind from the South from yesterday put her mind into Africa 😀! A few days to go untill the end of the meteorological summer of 2015, but the sun is still strong and bright in the big blue Algarvian sky, 26C and no wind. Top of page

  • 10 years Vila do Ouro01 September 2015

    10 years Vila do Ouro Exactly 10 years ago we started here at Vila do Ouro, a small holiday park with 12 accommodations on 5700m2. We arrived with our van, packed with our things and started straight in a fully booked park. We could not speak any portuguese at all, we didn't know the culture, we didn't know the law, we didn't know about maintaining a park and we didn't know a lot more. With hard work, with the will to learn, with the will to adapt, with our strategy, with the ideas of our guests and with the will to create an ecological and relaxed holiday place, we managed to have a lot of happy clients and a lot of regular clients. We are so happy that we are voted by our clients to be the best holiday accommodation in Portugal on Zoover for years. Thanks everybody who has supported us these past 10 years! We are ready for the next 10 years! 😀 Top of page
