Running down through a valley of pine trees to the sea, Vale do Lobo might be purpose built but it looks like it’s been there for eons. Moorish in style with arches, latticed balconies and red tiled roofs aplenty, this exclusive village is a gorgeous place to stay. Most of all though, it’s the sports facilities which will impress you. We’d better start with the golf. The two, 18-hole courses are simply superb. There’s the Royal with its famous 16th hole - where golfers have to drive across two ravines on the cliff. The attractive Ocean Course is less challenging, but was the last to be designed by Henry Cotton. And then there’s a huge driving range where you can practice your swing. Golf aside, there are plenty of other sports to take part in. The Tennis Academy runs holidays and coaching, whilst Barringtons Health Club has a the usual sports centre suspects. There’s a very good riding school too. To say you’re spoilt for choice would be an understatement. But if your idea idea of holiday heaven is less adrenaline-packed, follow the valley to the sea. Five kilometres of white sand. Low red cliffs. And a speckling of sunbeds and parasols. Beautiful. In the evening, the handful of restaurants and bars swing into action, with occasional live music and a regular disco on the beach in summer. It’s easy to see why this is one of the most popular spots on the Algarve’s coast.
