Activities and things to do
Vilasol golf course
Vila Sol became famous in 1992 when it hosted the Portuguese Open within a year of its opening.

It is beautifully kept and requires long iron shots onto the greens. The most memorable hole is the par 5 sixth with its elevated tee. Below lies a fairway peppered with bunkers and water hazards. In the distance are the large hills separating the Algarve from the rest of the country.

Karting Almancil
Almancil Karting was started in 1992. It is a leisure and competition complex that is available for all lovers of the most accessible motor racing sport - karting!

The park is open all year. The racetrack is a 760m replica of the former F1 Brazilian racetrack named Jacarepegua.

It is located in a leisure complex near to Almancil, IP1 Highway, National Road, EN125.

Tel: 00 351 289 399 899
Pinetrees Horse Riding Centre
Located between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, Pinetrees Riding Centre provides a high standard of riding tuition, taught by qualified teachers. Lessons are available for beginners as well as experienced riders with ponies for very young children.

Activities on offer include one to one and group sessions, nature walks and treks. The centre welcomes disabled riders with some experience and with medical and (under 18s) parental approval. Riding equipment such as boots, hats and jodhpurs are provided. (Tel. 289 394 369/489)

Aquashow Waterslide Park
The park includes a massive wave pool, superb water slides and mini golf.

Also on site are a gift shop, changing and shower facilities, several restaurants, sunbeds and all you need to spend a really complete day of amusement.

Aquashow is situated on the N396 as you turn off the main N125 road for Quarteira. Tel: 00 351 289 389 396.

Vale de Lobo golf courses
Two courses are based at Vale do Lobo. The Royal is the main course, opening with an easy par 5 after which the fairways become tighter and the greens better protected.

The par 3 ninth is the most memorable. The green lies on a peninsula built into an artificial lake and is played at different angles depending on which tee you choose to use.

The sixteenth hole is possibly the most photographed in Europe. It is 210 metres long and crosses two ravines. Teeing off on a cliff top is an exhilarating experience and somewhat nerve-racking on a blustery day.

The other course is the Ocean Course, which is no less difficult and equally scenic.

Stephen Shrive, 11-Jul-2013

We had an excellent holiday, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The call-out service when we had a slight issue with the safe was very good too, nice that we were left alone to get on with it but also to know you have that kind of support available if you need it.

Julie Whiting, 27-May-2010

Villa was everything we could ask for, lots of room and very clean. The maids were lovely and did a great a job. Can't wait to organise another holiday, this has been one of the best villa's weve stayed in, if not the best. The gardens were beautiful, the pool was clean and not too cold. We will be visiting again. Thanks Villa Plus!!
