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.

                                          Excellent layout, furnishings and location

                                          5 of 5
                                          This was the perfect accommodation and location for our holiday as it was so close to the golf course, clubhouse and swimming pool. Apartment had all you need for a relaxing and comfortable holiday and we had a great time staying there. A short walk takes you to the clubhouse and after golf you can relax in the sun on the patio and watch players on the 14th hole or fire up the barbecue. Carvoeiro is a 10 minute drive and has an abundance of restaurants which offer great food at great prices. Also, there are 4 medium to large supermarkets within 5 minutes drive where you can buy everything you could possibly want on holiday. Complex is extremely safe with attentive security and I would highly recommend apartment.

                                          Spacious and very comfortable

                                          My wife and I stayed at this apartment for 10 days beginning 25th September 2015. We found it to be quite spacious and very comfortable with good sunbathing facilities on the patio and garden outside. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and the kitchen had everything in it that you would need for a self-catering holiday. We visited the (heated) pool, which is a two-minute walk away, every morning and found it to be really clean and well maintained with excellent changing facilities. We also visited the golf club, which is a four minute walk away, on a regular basis and found the food to be very good and the staff to be really friendly. To get the best out of the area, I would recommend hiring a car as there are some lovely beaches and restaurants just a short drive away. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and intend to return again next year.

                                          A super break in Gramacho

                                          4 of 5
                                          The property is situated on a very well cared for golf complex with excellent security. The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped - a real 'home from home' which was important to us as we had our 1 year old granddaughter with us. I particularly loved the glass conservatory and large patio which overlooked the beautiful gardens and virtually private pool (reserved for use by a limited number of properties). This enabled us to enjoy the sunsets and views late into the evening. Emma and Mike were there to greet us and provided a very nice welcome pack, with some of the basic essentials and a nice bottle of wine! The information pack that they put together was extremely informative about the apartment, the local area and traffic laws etc. There was a list of useful phone numbers for local doctors etc. and some nice recommendations for restaurants, some of which we tried and loved! My husband and son-in-law enjoyed some nice rounds of golf and we girls got to check out the local spa hotel which was a ten minute walk away. We particularly enjoyed the nearby 'Slide and Splash' waterpark which was less than a ten minute drive away and kept us entertained all day. We had a wonderful stay and I would highly recommend this property to my friends and family.
