The luxurious seaside resort of Vale do Lobo lies between Quinta do Lago and Vilamoura, in the southern part of Portugal in the Algarve. Vale do Lobo is just a 20-minute drive from Faro Airport, 15 minutes from Vilamoura and 25 minutes from Albufeira.
Built for this purpose, this luxurious resort traverses a beautiful valley of pines and figs, with magnificent lagoons, in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of the Portuguese Algarve. Moorish-style buildings, with their red roofs and balconies, add to the character and beauty of this exclusive village. Accommodations here are mainly luxury villas and luxury apartments, but there are some luxury hotels here that cater for couples, families and groups on their golf vacation. For sports lovers, there are two great golf courses, a first-class tennis academy with 14 stadiums, a health club and a riding school. For those who just want to relax and soak up the sun, there is a three-mile stretch of virgin golden sandy beaches backed by low red sandstone.
The Vale do Lobo features two exceptional 18-hole golf courses. The Royal is famous for its 16th hole, where golfers have to drive two holes in the rock. The Ocean Course was designed by the late Sir Henry Cotton and is much less challenging than the Royal but still an exciting course. There is also a wide range of driving options to practice on your swing before trying your hand at 18-hole lessons. Golf lovers will love the slopes that swell with palm trees and almond trees facing the sea.
At the heart of the resort is the Barringtons Health Club, which is often used by international football and cricket teams. The club offers excellent facilities such as indoor and outdoor pools, a children's pool, a health and fitness center, a fitness center, a sauna, a jacuzzi, a steam bath, squash courts, snooker, table tennis, a restaurant and a bar.
Restaurants and bars come into the evening with live music and disco on the beach in summer. The restaurants serve a wide variety of meals, including local and international dishes. Many of the restaurants are located by the sea, offering magnificent views of the Atlantic.
Golf is the main activity for most people on their immediate vacation in Vale do Lobo, but there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy.
