This beautiful villa is situated in a secluded cul-de-sac in the 5 star Penina Golf Resort overlooking the 5th fairway. Penina is near the picturesque village of Alvor and beautiful beaches. You enter the villa through an imposing electric gate followed by a long driveway before reaching the vila. As you enter you are encountered by beautiful aromatic landscaped gardens with large grassed areas, palm trees overlooking the pool, pines in the wild area with plants and flowers of every kind that instantly relax you. The villa contains 6 en-suit bedrooms all with direct access to a terraced area or the gardens. There are 4 bedrooms with double beds (one bedroom with a Emperor size bed) and 2 bedrooms with twin beds. In addition the villa has 2 separate living areas, 1 dining room with a large table and chairs for at least 12 people, kitchen with all facilities and a kitchenette servicing the living area on the first floor. The villa has air conditioning throughout. The back of the villa enjoys a large terrace area (approx. 100 sq meters) overlooking the pool which is beautifully furnished with rattan loungers where you can relax and admire the beautiful gardens. Here you can also enjoy a meal al fresco with family and friends.

If you prefer a round of golf then go no further. Penina golf is one of the oldest courses in the Algarve and a permanent living symbol to its architect and active promoter, Sir Henry Cotton. Originally paddy fields for growing rice that have been converted into a flat challenging course and especially designed for the stronger player. Cotton used the drainage ditches of the rice-field to define fairways in some places, and hazards in others. He enlarged them at strategic places modifying their banks by raising them and concealing the water hazards from the less cautious golfers. More than 360,000 trees were planted, dividing fairways, defining greens, giving a different character to each hole. It has many times been the home of the annual Portuguese Open.

Penina golf resort is located a short distance from the picturesque fishing village of Alvor. This beautiful village has 5 beaches to enjoy. The riverfront has to be one of Alvor’s most idyllic settings, a pleasant place for a stroll or to sit in one of the waterside bars for a drink and watch the world go by. In the evening, it’s worth getting a table outside or on the roof terrace of one of the restaurants here and watch the sun go down. Early in the morning, this is where the fishermen land their catch to sell it at the fish market here. Alvor’s main beach, Praia de Alvor, is a lovely long, dune backed, sandy beach. The eastern end of the sands, which offers a little shelter from some large rock formations is known as Praia de Três Irmãos. Even at the height of the season there is plenty of room on the beach for you to lie down and relax. There are restaurants and snack bars on both beaches.

Wander into town and explore the network of streets that make up Alvor and discover a multitude of places to eat and drink, catering for all tastes – traditional Portuguese, Indian, Chinese, Italian - and equally as many bars to choose from. Alvor is an ideal resort for families and has everything that you need for a relaxing holiday. There are plenty of shops including several smaller grocery shops for your daily needs, but if you do decide you want to go further afield then Lagos is just to the west and Portimão is just to the east.

There are plenty of activities on offer in and around Alvor. Slide and Splash water park is only a short distance away in Lagoa, there are canoeing trips on the Alvor river, bicycles to hire, several golf courses on the doorstep, fishing trips and boat trips to see the caves around Lagos or dolphin watching.

Zoomarine sea-life park is less than 30 minutes away on the outskirts of Albufeira and Lagos zoo is even closer - both great days out for families.

These are but a few of the activities you can enjoy whilst staying at Penina Retreat.

This property is very luxurious, comfortable and ideal for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa for my partners 60th birthday and took the whole family (12 people)including 4 grandchildren aged from 3 to 6. All the bedrooms were very well appointed with en-suite bathrooms. Living rooms were well furnished although the weather was so good we did not spend a lot of time indoors. We managed to eat outside on the patio with the BBQ close at hand every night.

Pool was big enough for all 12 of us to be in there at the same time and the pool chairs were very comfortable.

There is lot's of space all over the house if you want some space to yourself.

Diana is a wonderful owner and was there to greet us even though we arrived late in the evening and also included a welcome pack that included wine and beers which was very welcome.

It is also situated on the 5th fairway on Penina championship golf course.

I cannot say enough about this property and Diana but it is a holiday we will never forget.

Beautiful garden and property in secluded location

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this modern property in a traditional style for a relaxing break. The extensive gardens are green and lush and make the pool an attractive prospect for a days relaxation or sunbathing. Situated close to Penina golf course and 5-10 minutes car drive supermarkets and a little longer to central Alvor every thing is close at hand, but I would say a car was essential to access these amenities, given that the property is secluded and when the the "main " roads are reached there are no pavements to walk safely.

We were met by the owner Diana who guided us to and showed us around the property . There was a welcome pack of grocery items wine and cakes. I would say the current photos do not do the property justice.

The property is well equipped and maintain to a high standard. All rooms had ensuite, upstairs bedrooms were slightly larger, the reception area on the 1st floor gave a spacious feeling. However for me the veranda and gardens were the real place where I enjoyed being with mature "palm" type trees ( sorry not expert on this) in a well designed garden with the pool as a main feature.

I thought that property was good value for 6 double bedrooms at this time of year (June).

I had concerns when I booked because of the lack of reviews but the property exceeded my expectations and Diana was straightforward in my dealings with her.

I look forward to returning possibly when a nephew gets married next year in Alvor.

Thanks for great holiday

Lovely place in a quiet environment

  • 5 of 5

We shared this large villa with 10 other close friends for a week of golf, wine and food. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time there and Diana was on hand to answer any questions or queries that we had. The house and grounds are immaculate. The only (slight) downsides are that the kitchen is a bit on the small side for such a large house but when the weather is fine most people will be outside with the BBQ and that pool towels are not supplied. Diana was kind enough to include a generous starter pack that included a few bottles of wine - much appreciated by us all! We have stayed in this area before and although the Penina golf course is still lovely, it does need some TLC to bring it up to Championship course standard - this of course has nothing to do with the quality of the accommodation. We would be happy to return!

Séjour très reposant dans une très belle propriété

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette très confortable maison extrêmement bien aménagée, très propre et fonctionnelle : 6 chambres avec SDB, moderne et de bon goût. Un très beau jardin borde un golf magnifique où nous avons pu jouer pour un Green fee modique grâce à notre charmante hôtesse Diana. La piscine est également très agréable.

Les fêtards et amateurs de vie nocturne pourront se régaler à Portimao.

La région regorge également de plages superbes.

Bref que des superlatifs. Nous recommandons vraiment.

FANTASTIC SUMMER HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous two weeks in the villa. The bedrooms were very comfortable, en-suites all in immaculate condition and the gardens beautifully maintained. The pool was a great size for the kids and it was surrounded by comfortable sun loungers with plenty of sun or shade depending on your preference. The outside table was perfect for evening meals and beautifully shaded during the heat of the day. The town of Alvor was just a short drive away and had plenty of restaurants to choose from. Diana was the perfect owner being extremely helpful and attentive, both before and during our stay. This has to be the best villa we have stayed in over twenty years of holidaying in France, Italy and Portugal.

WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say apart from FANTASTIC. This villa was perfect. This is the fourth time I have visited the lovely Alvor and would re-visit again and again. This luxury villa really would take some beating. It certainly has the WOW factor when you arrive. The gardens are stunning, villa is so spacious, spotlessly clean and modern. The owner Diana is extremely helpful and generous with the lovely welcome pack and card when you arrive and is always contactable.

The pool is the perfect size and was cleaned every day.

I would recommend this villa to anyone......PERFECT thank you again Diana X
