The Greens Of Algarve | Life In A Global Golfing Destination

The Algarve region in Portugal is one of the world’s premier golfing destinations, with 33 highly-ranked courses that cater to all types of golfers and offer a wide variety of amenities. With most of the courses designed by renowned pros, golfers in this region can enjoy a stunning horizon with views of the Atlantic Ocean just beyond the green.

Authenticity in Vila Real De Santo Antonio

Imagine having the best golf course in Portugal, the Jack Nicklaus signature course, practically in your backyard. This commanding turn-of-the-century villa looks out onto a coastal landscape, the ocean, and the mountains from within the 400-hectare Monte Rei Golf Club, an ultimate destination for golfers and naturalists alike.

Magnificently large, south-facing windows fill the living space with soft light. With a pool, jacuzzi, and mature garden, this home is a private luxury retreat only a stone’s throw from the beach.

Luxe at Villamoura

Nestled in the well-known area of Vilamoura in Loule, this detached luxury home is just minutes away from the marina, beaches, and most importantly, the Royal and Ocean golf courses at Vale do Lobo. The Royal is famous throughout Europe for its eminently photographable 16th hole that looks out over white-sand beaches and challenges players to a tricky carry over the cliffs.

The contemporary villa is spread across 6,382 square feet with five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and magnificent views of the nearby Old Course from its large, sunny windows. The pool and expansive garden invite indulgence in the leisurely Algarve lifestyle.

Alluring Albufeira

Located between Albufeira and Armação de Pêra, this delightfully geometric detached house overlooks 270 hectares of three world-class golf courses that are part of the Amendoeira Resort. By night, you can play the only illuminated nine-hole golf course in Portugal. By day, you can try your hand at the highly strategic Faldo course designed by Sir Nick Faldo.

A build of over 4,305 square feet with five ensuite bedrooms and an awe-inspiring view of the Nature Park, this home is ideal for those who revel in contemporary comfort and sophistication. With underfloor heating in all bathrooms, a heated swimming pool, and the blissful Mediterranean climate, the property is primed for unwinding after an exhilarating game of golf.

Magnificence at SilvesVirgolino Gomes – Portugal Sotheby’s International Realty

Sprawled across 1.89 acres, this contemporary four-bedroom villa offers panoramic countryside views and carries class-A energy certification for environmentally friendly climate control. A miniature farm on the property, complete with ducks and peacocks, adds a heartwarming rustic touch to the home’s crisp architectural design.

After a day on the links of championship courses Vale da Pinta and Gramacho, you’ll welcome a dip under the refreshing cascade of the pool’s waterfall feature. Dine al fresco on the expansive terrace with an outdoor kitchen, then watch the stars from the jacuzzi. You’ll enjoy exceptional privacy and luxury details, from heated floors to a double garage.

Luxury in Lagos

Dário Neto – Portugal Sotheby’s International Realty

Situated on a massive 2.66 acres next door to one of the most picturesque courses, this wonderful shingle-style villa in the Luz area of Lagos, Algarve, is what a golfer’s dreams are made of. With a view of the sea and the whole coast of Portimão, Alvor, Lagos on one side and the Palmares Lagos – Ocean Living & Golf on the other. This course is home to three 9-hole courses: Alvor, Lagos, and Praia, enveloped by Meia Praia.

The villa’s design embraces form and function through traditional style and contemporary elements. With the Algarve being one of Europe’s sunniest regions, soaking in around 3000 hours of sunshine annually, this villa’s west-facing courtyard is made for sunset gazing, enjoying evening laps along the lengthy pool, and capping off the evening with a cocktail at the swim-up bar.
