Vale do Lobo, the perfect destination for Tennis Holidays in Portugal

Vale do Lobo was the first major development in the Algarve and, with continued investment over the years, has retained its reputation as one of Europe’s finest resorts.

Situated between Quinta do Lago and Vilamoura and only 20 minutes drive from Faro airport, Vale do Lobo is approximately three times the size of the Principality of Monaco. Residents and visitors are attracted by the resort’s self-contained community together with its range of exclusive properties and excellent facilities and services, which include two magnificent 18-hole championship golf courses (with many more within a short drive), and a Tennis Academy with 14 courts.

Vale do Lobo also has its own two kilometre sandy beachfront, with an extensive choice of restaurants, bars and shops. Vale do Lobo has the feeling of an exclusive self-contained community. Everything you need is close at hand – from the onsite bank, post office and supermarket to the resort’s own doctor and security service.

Our long term relationship with the resort and in particular the excellent Tennis Centre there, has allowed us to continue to recommend it as a venue for short breaks and tennis holidays in Portugal. Set on a long sandy beach the resort has a peaceful, established air about it. Accommodation is available in over 1,300 villas and apartments, plus the popular 4* Hotel Dona Filipa, overlooking the beach.

As well as the excellent Tennis Centre and a communal pool, the complex also has a few shops including a supermarket.

Comment from a revious Vale do Lobo guest – “I think this resort is perfect for everyone. I have been with my family and with an all girls party and it works for both.The praca which is an area of cafes, restaurants and a few shops along the beach. The restaurants are mostly with sea views and are stunning. The food is amazing in all, I recommend Sandbanks and La Place. This is a golfing and tennis resort, but if you like good food, safe areas for children and lovely beaches then this is for you. I think it is well worth the money. Well done Vale Do Lobo.”
