About Vale do Lobo

There are few places in the world with the unique appeal of the Algarve

… just the name conjures up images of clear skies, sparkling seas and charming villas, with whitewashed walls gleaming in the sun and roofs tiled in rich terracotta hues.

This is a land full of natural beauty… gentle hills, vast forests and mile after mile of sandy beaches, on which the sun shines for more than
3,000 hours every year – probably more than in any part of the Mediterranean. Here, the skies seem more blue, the beaches more golden
and the coastline more spectacular than mere words and pictures can convey.

The largest luxury resort in Portugal…

About Vale do Lobo

Bordering the Atlantic Ocean, just 20 minutes from Faro Airport, you will find Vale do Lobo – the longest established luxury golf and beach resort in Portugal. Set amongst acres of pine trees above majestic red sandstone cliffs and overlooking miles of golden sands, this is not just a luxury private estate but a congenial community where owners of holiday homes happily intermingle with year-round residents.

Vale do Lobo was created with unparalleled flair and imagination as a self-contained centre for heavenly holidays, offering a wide range of pastimes
and pursuits.

… and so much to do

This superb resort has its own beach concessions and excellent general amenities, including a spa and fitness centre, supermarket, shops, restaurants and bars. Privacy and tranquillity are complemented by a wide range of leisure facilities – not only golf, but also one of the largest tennis centres in the Algarve. Opportunities for horse riding, water sports and fishing can be found not far away.

With its seductive blend of beach, nature and golf, Vale do Lobo is the ultimate year-round family destination, basking in sunshine during every season. It’s a firm favourite of those seeking to escape to a peaceful paradise, attracting celebrities, business people and holiday-makers alike.

Spectacular golden beaches

Lapped by the cooling waters of the sparkling blue Atlantic, the beaches along this coastline offer a variety of
friendly restaurants and bars, so you can recover your energy without ever losing sight of the sea.

The fantastic beach at Vale do Lobo itself is so long and wide it never becomes crowded, even in the height of summer.

Those who prefer to swim in a pool can indulge themselves in the vast Rotunda pool next to the beach,
with its own open-air bar and restaurant and a smaller pool for children close by.

Close to the beach and the Praça is the children’s Kangaroo Club, where the whole family can have fun playing
indoor games or mini-golf, 
and leaping around on the bouncy castle – all under the supervision of fully trained staff.

The “village square” of Vale do Lobo

Fronting onto the beach, the Praça is a picturesque area that serves as a delightful meeting place where you can find
everything you need f
or a truly enjoyable holiday, including elegant restaurants, informal bars and open-air cafés.

Magnificent golf courses

The Algarve is one of Europe’s premier golfing destinations, and Vale do Lobo is home to
two scenically breathtaking 18-hole championship Courses of contrasting character,
both renowned for their challenging layout and exhilarating ocean views.

You can perfect your technique while enjoying a dazzling natural landscape,
where fairways and villas blend with umbrella pines and golden beaches,
while nearby ocean waves shimmer in the sunlight.

Special arrangements are available through Elliott for play on both the Royal and Ocean Courses.
