Activities and things to do
Almancil Go Karting
Situated 8 kilometres from Vilamoura and open all year round, the Almancil Go Karting circuit is a replica of the Jacarepagua Formula 1 circuit in Brazil. Try a 160cc or 200cc Go Kart or lift the pace with a 400cc bi-motor model. (Tel. 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)

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.

Vale de Lobo Royal Course:

As a group of 11 people, we found the villa a great size to share. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for each of us and no one was under any one else's feet. Pool was great and the games provided were good.

Excellent villa, and location. Sorry it was over so quickly!!!

Rachel Pottinger, 07-Jul-2012

This villa was perfect in every way, it accommodated 5 families (16 people in total) easily & comfortably. The maid was absolutely fantastic, bless her nothing was to much trouble, we spoke no Portuguese as she spoke no English but we over came it with hand gestures & smiles Thank You/Obrigado again to her x It does state in the description that a car is essential, so we hired a car but to be honest there is a shop within a couple of hundred meters that sells fresh meat & veg & if you don't intend leaving the villa often & are happy to use the local taxi man then you really don't need one. Thank You villa plus for a fantastic holiday, its our second time with you & we will use you again!
