Managed by the Pestana Group and just 20 minutes from Faro airport, the two courses and the 5-star Pestana Vila Sol Hotel occupy 75 acres of beautiful countryside on the fringe of the chic town of Vilamoura.
The Championship course comprises 27 challenging holes designed by renowned golf architect Donald Steel.

Alternatively, Vilamoura beach or the town’s famous marina can be reached in less than 10 minutes by car – during the summer months a free transfer between the hotel and golden sands operates.
The hotel itself offers two bars and as many restaurants. In addition, guests can use the gym, indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi.
For younger guests there is a game’s room, playground and a Kids Club, which is available during the summer.
The resort comprises a central building surrounded by villas, 188 rooms and suites in total, all with private terrace or balcony plus Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV. There is also one Presidential suite.
