Portugal’s Algarve region attracted record numbers of golfers in 2023. Preliminary figures from the Portuguese National Statistics Institute (INE) show that two thirds of the country’s golf rounds were played in the Algarve in 2023, accounting for 1.4 million rounds.

Portugal also won big in terms of its golfing reputation on the international stage, named Europe’s Best Golf Destination and the World’s Best Golf Destination at the 2023 World Golf Awards.

At Vale do Lobo, the Algarve’s original lifestyle resort established in 1962, golfers can enjoy not only the two championship 18-hole golf courses but a range of stylishly refurbished Golf Residences. Priced from EUR 830,000, the homes are perfectly positioned for access to the resort’s golf courses, clubhouse and other exceptional facilities. Each of the properties has been tastefully refurbished in a way that fuses timeless architecture with contemporary aesthetics.

Spread over 450 hectares of lush greenery and boasting a 2km-long stretch of golden sandy beach, Vale do Lobo has been a mecca for golfers for decades. Now, a new generation is discovering its challenging courses, tennis academy, spa, restaurants, shops and more – and many of those who experience the resort are drawn back time and again.

According to Kronos Homes, which owns and operates the Algarve’s prestigious resort, demand from this new generation of golfers for luxurious, golf-front properties is being seen from around the world.

“We are working with clients from across the globe when it comes to demand for our Golf Residences. We have beautifully refurbished each property to deliver unparalleled comfort. Combined with the homes’ exceptional location, the Golf Residences are meeting the needs of a discerning and diverse international clientele,” said, Alda Filipe, Real Estate Director, Kronos Homes

A wide range of sizes and layouts mean Vale do Lobo’s Golf Residences are suited to varying buyer needs, from fulltime residences and second homes to investment properties. Depending on the property, buyers can expect features such as infinity plunge pools, covered terraces, private swimming pools, rooftop Jacuzzis and more. Apartments, duplexes and linked villas are all available for purchase.

Vale do Lobo’s Proprietors’ Club offers a comprehensive range of property management services, community-focused events and exclusive discounts and facilities. The club ensures owners, and their families can enjoy the very best of the Algarve lifestyle, all with minimal effort and maximum relaxation.

“There is so much that is wonderful about the Algarve, from its beautiful beaches to its glorious gastronomy, in addition to its internationally recognised golfing lifestyle. Buying a home at Vale do Lobo, less than 30 minutes from Faro airport, means families can make the most of their time in this stunning part of the world.”
