According to golfholidays.com, who are one of the leading golf travel firms on the Internet, Portugal tops the list of places in which to enjoy the best golfing holiday experience, beating France into second place.
Apparently it achieves this accolade thanks to the excellent value and easy access offered, as well as the enormous choices of outstanding courses and accomodations. This probably won’t come as a surprise to many people, as golfing holidays in Portugal are often considered to be something of a tradition.
The Algarve is synonymous with great golf courses, especially as the region benefits from a temperate year-round climate that is perfect for the sport. This is something that has enticed buyers to the region for many years, as no matter where you buy a property, is unlikely to be far away from a world class golfing facility.
One of the most popular areas is in Vilamoura as there are no less than the 12 golf courses in the locality. Some properties are on the golf courses and offer access to numerous amenities, while others are situated nearby. These kinds of properties are always in demand for golfing holidays, and are usually very easy to rent out.
Although Portugal does have problems, the country is taking substantial steps to return to financial health, and there’s probably never been a better time to buy. The Algarve has excellent flight connections to the rest of Europe, and is close enough to the UK for long weekend breaks. It’s also perennially popular amongst those looking to escape the winter weather.
