Any golfer looking for a vacation destination with prestigious courses and a beautiful landscape should seriously consider the Algarve. Golf holidays here are popular with players from around the world and all abilities thanks to the terrific variety, lush setting and gorgeous weather. |
There is also a range of luxury accommodation options in the Algarve. Golf holidays are not complete without having a beautiful hotel, villa or suite to retire to after a round of 18. You cannot go wrong with the Monte Rei Villas which provide guests with excellent golf, accommodation and food – everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Be a Player
The award-winning 72-par Jack Nicklaus course here is one of the finest in all of Europe and will provide players of all abilities with the opportunity to enhance their game. Each of the 18 holes has been carefully designed to seamlessly blend into its natural canvas against a stunning backdrop, but do not let this distract you as it provides a real challenge too. With eight par-4’s, five par-3’s and five par-5’s over 6567 m² with water hazards on 11 of the holes, no player will get bored of teeing off here each day.
Be a Guest
There is no better way to chill out after a round than returning to the stunning serviced villas. These spacious properties feature large terraces, private outdoor dining areas and elegant furniture all within pristinely manicured gardens. Additionally, the properties come with a large swimming pool which is a great way to escape the heat in the Algarve. Golf holidays at Monte Rei Villas allow guests to completely unwind and indulge as well as polish their game at one of Europe’s top courses.
Be a Gourmand
Good food is, of course, a key component of any trip but especially when you are in the Algarve. Golf holidays at Monte Rei Villas can involve fine dining with a total of four res-taurants along with two cool bars. The highlight is Vistas Restaurant, which was recently included in the Michelin Guide for 2018 (Spain/Portugal) for its exceptional quality of food, service and setting. Here you can dine on gastronomic delights in an opulent dining room with magnificent views over the course and out to the Atlantic. Chef Lourenço´s grand tasting menu is highly recommended and comes paired with fine wines throughout. If you are seeking a more informal experience, be sure to check out The Grill, The Academy Café or Veranda by the swimming pool.
