The Boavista Golf Resort is centred around a gloriously well landscaped 18 hole golf course. Not only is Boavista, Portugal, a golf resort, it is a very peaceful, luxurious place to stay, even if you don’t pick up a golf club during your stay in an apartment at Boavista. Just five minutes from the beaches of Praia da Luz and the finest town in the Algarve, Lagos, you get much more than a golf holiday when you rent accommodation at Boavista Golf Resort.
The golf course at the heart of the resort was designed ‘as if it had always been there’, meaning that it is one of the most natural and testing golf courses in the Algarve. Although it was only opened in 2002, it is already known as one of the finest courses in the region, helped too be the stunning views over the Atlantic Ocean and the Monchique Hills. Don’t worry, if you feel you need to get a practice swing in before you tee off, there is a large golf academy, pitching areas, putting green, practice bunkers and a driving range between your Boavista apartment and the first tee.
Aside from the exceptional golf, Boavista, Portugal, also has a range of sport and leisure facilities including a large, communal swimming pool, tennis academy, five a side football pitches and safe children’s play area.
The blue flag beaches of Praia da Luz, Meia Praia and Praia Dona Ana are just a few minutes away from an apartment at Boavista Golf Resort. The secluded, peaceful beaches which line the Algarve Coast are hard to describe to first time visitors, but the exceptional beauty of the coastline, golden sand and warm, turquoise waters here are hard to beat on any beach holiday in Europe. The Praia da Luz beach, which is the closest to the rental accommodation in Boavista, is lined with a small number of restaurants and cafes for refreshment during the daily heat.
If you rent accommodation at Boavista for any length of time, you will certainly visit the wonderful town of Lagos, which has been marked as the nicest town in the Algarve. Offering a selection of top quality shops, restaurants and cafes, and surrounded by a variety of children’s attractions like Splash and Slide, Europe’s largest water park, a zoo, go-karting tracks and a small safari park, Lagos has plenty to offer the visitor. The old centre of Lagos is a charming place to visit from an apartment at Boavista Golf Resort, as there are some fascinating historical buildings to be discovered.
Apartments at Boavista do a great trade all year round, as even in the middle of winter, daily temperatures reach up to around 20°C, which is a much nicer temperature to play golf in than the winter temperatures in Britain! In summer, daily temperatures can soar up to 40°C, but the long evenings are ideal for golf, leaving the day free to visit the beach.
Faro International Airport (FAO) is the most popular destination for flight from the UK in the Algarve. As a result, finding a convenient and cheap flight to Faro from the UK should not be hard, with many airlines fighting for customers. An apartment in Boavista can be reached within an hour of arriving at the airport.
