Forte da Oura

Forte da Oura, Albufeira Portugal

A healthy combination of self-catering and full service accommodation, in well-maintained surroundings, with easy access to most areas of the resort and beyond.

The friendly and relatively upmarket atmosphere attracts families and couples who appreciate some attention to detail, well-arranged grounds and the cheerful atmosphere which is usually found in properties operated by the popular Portuguese brand, Luna.
