Make a holiday rental home or villa in Pestana, Portugal your home away from home

The Pestana Estate is a beautiful country golf resort in the Algarve, Portugal, located on the outskirts of Carvoeiro, the beautiful fishing village made famous to visitors due to the fantastic beaches which line its shores. Renowned for its beautiful golf courses and luxurious villas, Pestana Golf Resort is a prime destination for holidaymakers hoping to explore some of the finest features which have made the Algarve so well known, including the glorious sand beaches and towering Monchique Mountains which surround the resort and its excellent leisure facilities.

Things to do on holiday in the Pestana Estate, Portugal

The Pestana Estate is home to two championship golf courses, the Vale da Pinta and Gramacho, as well as a golfing academy. Therefore, golfing holidays top the bill as far as reasons for taking a Pestana villa are concerned. The two courses both offer brilliant scenery, covering undulating, grove laden hills, with magnificent views over the Sierra de Monichique and the ocean, and you can brush up on your swing in the driving range or on the practice greens before heading out on that all important first round. However, a Pestana villa is not only a great base for golfers.

The famous beaches of Carvoeiro and the surrounding area are the dream of sun-worshipers, who flock to the powder-soft sands of the Praia de Los Canarios, just 10 minutes from the front door of a Pestana villa. The beach here rarely becomes crowded, and there is an excellent restaurant on the small cliff just behind the beach. Water sports enthusiasts or those wishing to try their hand at sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, scuba diving or surfing should head to the beach at Ferragudo, a 15 minute walk away down the beautiful coastal path.

During the winter, those not wanting to play golf can head into the countryside for their entertainment. Walking, cycling and riding holidays making use of a Pestana Estate villa work very nicely, as there are many walking, riding and cycling trails into the Sierra de Monchique which leave from close to the village, as well as stables and bike rental shops available.

Places to holiday in the Pestana Estate, Portugal

If you take a Pestana villa for any length of time, you will almost certainly visit the town of Carvoeiro on a fairly regular basis as the town provides all the large shops and services required in the region.

Weather in the Pestana Estate, Portugal

With up to 300 days of sunshine every year, and winter temperatures which can rival the summer temperatures we are used to in Britain, there really is a reason to escape to a Pestana villa at any time of year. In winter, accommodation in Pestana Estate are frequented by golfers escaping the British winter and by sightseers tempted by off-season prices. However, in summer, when temperatures average around 30°C, the beaches become a real draw for visitors.

Fabulous villa, great position and views. So many different comfy seating areas, perfect.

5 of 5
We have just returned from a brilliant holiday in this fabulous villa, it had a fantastic outside dining area with gas bbq, plus very large outside pool area with plenty of places to relax. Inside did not disappoint either, it was spacious and comfortable and had everything needed to complete the perfect holiday. A great big thanks to Sam who was there if needed. The only gripe we did have was first thing in a morning the water pressure was very low (or non existent) which effected the toilets and showering, otherwise overall a perfect holiday.

Great place for a "chill out" week. Well equipped apartment if self catering or only a short drive to dine out..(recommend Tapas no Bucho in Lagoa and Fim Do Mundo in Ferragudo). 1 minutes walk to the 1st tee or less to the pool. We were lucky enough to have the wonderful private infinity pool to ourselves for the majority of our stay? Fabulous time.
