Holidays in Vale de Garrao are all about sport, sunshine and style. This is no traditional Algarve village, more a well-designed, purpose built hideaway tucked amongst the pine trees alongside a curve of soft sand. Golf is big news, with a 27 hole course here in Vale de Garrao, and the golfing meccas of Vale Do Lobo and Quinta do Lago to either side. If tennis is more your sport, then there are courts here too, and for those who want to get really serious, there's a tennis academy just up the road in Vale Do Lobo.
Of course, for many the only things worth getting serious about on their summer holiday are what to order for dinner and where to place your beach mat on the sand. There's plenty of scope for both here in Vale de Garrao, with beachside restaurants serving seafood straight from the Atlantic, and an unspoilt stretch of sand with watersports. This is a natural spot, with great walking and cycling through the sand dunes and pines, and even more of the same in the Rio Formosa nature reserve just the other side of Vale Do Lobo.
If you've chosen a self catering holiday in Vale de Garrao, make sure you dine out with the locals in nearby Amancil. Choose between mouthwatering fresh fish, or hearty traditional fare, for both are excellent here. For days out, you can't beat a stroll around the colourful, restored houses of Faro's Moorish walled town.
