If you’re harboring secret ambitions to join the elite club of golfers, or if you just want to play nine holes on a luxurious holiday, look no further than Premier Holidays, who provide luxury self catering Algarve villas within driving or walking distance of dozens of fantastic golf courses.
Carvoeiro is a superb location for a family-friendly holiday, with miles of sandy beaches and a great atmosphere in the quaint town centre. It is also home to the Vale de Milho golf course, an ideal course for beginners just getting the hang of the sport and for regular players to improve on their short game. The lovely Algarve Villa Cassandra is just 1.5km away from the Vale de Milho course, and is just a ten minute drive from one of the world’s top 100 beaches, Praia de Marinha. The fully air-conditioned self catering villa is well-equipped and modern, with four beautifully furnished bedrooms with en suites. The 12 x 6 metre swimming pool can be electrically heated for an extra charge and the outdoor patio area is ideal for al fresco dining after a long day on the green.
Not far from Carvoerio is the lovely little town of Albufeira, with sandy coves waiting to be explored and a wealth of traditional Portuguese cafes and restaurants (one of which is where the famous ‘piri piri’ chicken was created). Casa Rosinhas is a four-bedroomed villa with a private pool and terrace with delightful views. There is a splash pool for small children, a large private parking area and a built-in charcoal barbecue, an essential in a self catering Algarve villa. Casa Rosinhas is a short drive (7km) away from the nearest golf course, with many others to choose from in the area, including Pine Cliffs, Salgados and the Oceanico Academy, opened in 2009.
Premier Holidays is also proud to offer the stunning Casa Ventana in Lagos, set across two floors, with the living space positioned on the upper floor to really take advantage of the amazing views. The area is private and secluded, but the villa is just a short drive from a collection of shops and restaurants, with some superb sandy beaches and the resort of Luz. Landscaped with palm trees and fruit trees, the garden area has a 10 x 5 metre swimming pool and an al fresco dining area, perfect for balmy summer evenings after a day on the golf course. In the area of Lagos is the fantastic 27-hole course Palmares. Transformed by American golf course designer Robert Trent Jones Jr, the views from the course over the Bay of Lagos are breathtaking and with five of the holes placed on sand dunes, it can be a real challenge for any golfing enthusiast.
