Activities and things to do
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:

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)

Karen Findlayson, 22-Aug-2013

We had a lovey week at Villa Penrose. Pool was a great size and there was plenty of grass to play ball games. All bedrooms had air conditioning and were a good size, the kitchen was very well equipped, the living area was huge and very comfortable. Great location too, a short drive from Val de Lobo and within 5 min drive of big supermarkets and loads of restaurants nearby to drive to. Close to Aqua Show, which was fun. Would recommend this villa without hesitation.
