Pestana Gramacho Residences is The Perfect Base For Your Algarve Golf Holiday

By: Kieran Clark | Thu 15 Jun 2023

For many golfers throughout Europe, the Algarve is their home from home, the place where they return to play numerous immaculately presented courses in the most fabulous of climates that also delivers peace and tranquility.

It's arguably the perfect blend and a Pestana Hotel is a more than acceptable gateway to experience it. We recently covered three of those venues in the feature article Discover 3 Magical Golf Destinations in The Algarve, but now we wish to take you closer to Pestana Gramacho Residences that is located close to the local fishing town of Carvoeiro and is only 45 minutes from Faro Airport, making it highly accessible for visitors.

There is a choice of one and two bedroom apartments, studios and stylish classic rooms, all coming equipped with amenities and are styled to best capture an authentic but modern Portuguese villa.

The venue has a swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna which guests can unwind and relax in. It also offers a tennis court and fitness centre for those who are looking for an alternative to the golf.

Naturally, there is a host of exceptional layouts to play in the surrounding area. Vale da Pinta is a superbly maintained course that demands accurate driving with acute doglegs a feature, with water hazards on the front nine placing an even greater premium on precision.

Gramacho is Vale da Pinta’s sister course and showcases many intriguing features, namely; outcrops of rock, dry stone walls, fig, almond, carob and olive trees that combine with the bunkers and lakes to offer an exciting challenge.

Nearby Silves Golf Course benefits from a rural location that presents magnificent mountain and valley views, overlooking olive groves, pines trees and farms. There is much to love about that serene setting, but the course itself is strategic and rewards aggressive play, making it a fun test for all standards of golfers.
