The three Oceanico courses in Alcantarilha are also within 20 minutes’ drive of the resort.

After his success designing the Vale de Pinta course, Ronald Fream teamed up with the former world No. 1 Nick Price to create the unique design of Gramacho. With 18 holes and 27 greens, plus numerous different tee points, players are able to enjoy the same course time and time again but always with slightly different challenges.

Just returned from a 9 night stay at Monte Santo. Lovely accommodation, home from home. Staff are very helpful. Breakfasts were good quality with plenty of choice. Carvoeiro is just a 15 min walk from the villa and is a lovely town with lots of restaurant choices.
