Gramacho Course - Carvoeiro
The Former No1 player Nick Price has teamed up with the well known golf course architect Ronald Fream to create a uniquely designed 18 hole course with 27 varied greens. Golfers can play the same course several times with different greens and new challenges. The design technique has positioned the greens and protective bunkers so that an 18 hole round is a genuine challenge. The positioning of the tee markers helps to increase this variety still further. As in the case of the neighbouring Pinto Course this course is maintained at tournament standard all the year round. Although the course is designed in the style of Nick Price, the wonderful characteristics remain on the site from the boulder outcrops and dry stone walling to the fig, carob and olive trees. These have been complemented by artfully positioned lakes and bunkers. These hazards combined with the design of the greens and fairways result in a challenging but attractive course. At the end of the round experienced golfers will be able to confirm that they have played a great course.

Mungo Bryson, 05-Jun-2014

Just returned from a weeks stay in Villa Tess and the whole family were delighted with the villa. It had everything that we needed for our holiday, it was huge but as there were 3 generations(70 - 2yo) going this suited us fine! The location of the villa was excellent, if u dont mind a steep hill walking back, we walked to many of the excellent restaurants and we found everyone was very chatty with us and kid friendly. The pool was fantastic the best we have ever had on holiday it was lovely warm so we spent hours in it! Wouldnt hesitate in booking again.
