ALGARVE - AUGUST 2005
There are many places to go on holidays; but everything considered, if you want to have a nice time on the beach or if you love golf and don't want to run the risk of the rain ruining your swing, the place to go is the Algarve. Peaceful (notwithstanding the presence of some more «energetic» July/August tourists), good food, sunny skies, no hurricanes, typhoons or whatever, calm and refreshing waters, it's definitely Difficult to find better.
"PENINA HOTEL - The Penina is a nice hotel, close to the village of Alvor, and a golfer's paradise"
"GOLF - In the estate of roughly 1.5 square km there are three courses: the Championship, the Academy and the Resort, all of which were designed by the late Sir Henry Cotton. Within very easy driving distance there is a choice of another seven courses. If you're not fond of golf, there are six tennis courts, a FIFA-sized football field, a jogging circuit, and an Olympic size swimming pool..."
"SWIMMING POOL - Should you prefer water sports, the swimming pool is quite impressive"
"ALVOR BEACH - When tired of exploring the 360 acre estate, take the shuttle and set off to the beach: one of the best in the Algarve!"
