This academy really was fantastic. The coaches were friendly and great with the kids. We will definitely be returning to stay in Vale do Lobo for another tennis/golf holiday very soon!

Stayed at Vale do lobo for 1 week July 2nd to 9th. My husband had never been to Portugal before (I adore it) and plays tennis at club level so this palce was wonderful for him. He was extremely impressed with the resort, it is so well maintained and the tennis coaches were excellent. He played every day and met some fantastic people. The restaurants are of a high standard but if the resort is busy you will have to book to get a table. Vale do Lobo is mainly for lovers of golf and tennis but if hiring a car you can visit the many pretty and picturesque villages and beaches nearby. Vale do Lobo and Vale do Garrao (it's sister area) are quiet, clean areas with superb beaches and a very relaxing atmosphere and we found the best Indian restaurant on the planet on the road to Almansil.

I would highly recommend these areas for a relaxing holiday or if you are into golf/tennis, also horse riding but there isn't too much for children, except a small area where there is pitch and putt, go karting and some childrens swings etc. There are also no shops so you would have to travel further afield to Faro where there is a great shopping centre. All the apartments, villas are great and our apartment had stunning views along the coast from a high vantage point, we will most definately be returning.
