Pestana Carvoeiro Golf Resort
The Pestana Carvoeiro is a great choice for golfers who want sun, sea and a good game of golf. Located in the most southerly province of Portugal and situated within 10 km of many of the Algarve’s most famous beaches, this hotel checks all of the boxes. The Pestana resort has great links with local courses, so you won’t have any problems with getting yourself any our clubs to the places that you need to be for your next round of golf.
As all of the accommodation offers fully equipped kitchens, this resort is a great choice for those who prefer self-catering options. Either prepare food at home or visit one of the nearby restaurants. The resort boasts two “clubhouses” which serve Portuguese and international cuisines for breakfast, lunch and dinner services on an a la carte basis. Vegetarian foods and special diets are both catered for. The onsite bar is open from 7am until midnight every day, so you will be able to get refreshments when you want them throughout the day.
The accommodation at the Pestana Carvoeiro compromises of a mixture of apartments and villas. All accommodation types have a living room area, a fully fitted kitchen and a full bathroom. International satellite TV is available. Whilst the apartments have access to the resort’s shared swimming pool, all villa accommodations have their own private gardens and a private swimming pool.
The nearby Gramacho course was designed by Ronald Fream and former golfer Nick Price. It is an excellent course for those with a higher handicap and it has hosted the Portuguese Ladies Open on an number of occasions. The designers strived to incorporate a wealth of natural features into the course, including rocky stone outcrops and ancient trees. Historic dry stone walling also features heavily. This is teamed with sympathetically sculpted lakes and bunkers to create a challenging but pleasing course. The Vale da Pinta is another course which is easily accessible from the Pestana Carvoeiro. Another Ronald Fream course, this course is also highly regarded in the area. It regularly features as a venue for European Seniors Tours competitions.
