Vale De Lobo Hotels
Mini guide to Vale De Lobo
Vale do Lobo is Portugal's biggest luxury golf and beach resort. It is embraced
by two national parks of outstanding natural beauty on the beautiful Algarve coastline.
Despite its size, Vale do Lobo still retains an intimate family ambience. It
has been the proud recipient of a number of accolades and awards including the
'Best Resort of the Millennium' for the high standard of its accommodation,
services and sporting facilities, and concern for the environment.
The resort is flanked by a five kilometre long golden sandy beach and majestic
red sandstone cliffs that are blessed by an average 3,000 hours of sunshine
a year. Everything for the perfect holiday is on your doorstep at Vale do Lobo,
including: sophisticated bars and restaurants serving delicious international
and regional cuisine; hairdressers; shops; and enchanting bistros and cafés.
Vale do Lobo is the perfect setting for year round golf. Two beautiful courses,
the Royal Course and the Ocean Course, wind through undulating fairways lined
with umbrella pine, almond, fig and olive trees, down to the Atlantic shoreline
and its cooling breezes. More than 25 different sporting and leisure facilities
are available at Vale do Lobo, including a tennis academy.
The best way to see the whole of the Algarve is by car, and most towns and
beaches have easy access via the main N125 highway. To the west of Vale do Lobo
lies the busy town of Portimao with its bustling markets, excellent shopping
and superb choice of fine dining. A little farther to the west is the administrative
capital of the Algarve and picturesque sea port town of Lagos.
The modern N2 highway from Lisbon connects with the N125 Algarve road. There
are three trains daily from the southern Lisbon town of Barreiro, taking about
five hours. Faro Airport is 20kms to the east; if you're not on a package holiday
with a free transfer, take a taxi, which is a lot quicker than the bus.
