Vale Do Lobo is one of the most beautiful and well maintained resorts in Europe.

In 1965 the Golf courses began construction overseen by Sir Henry Cotton the same year that Faro airport was opened.
The courses finaly opened in 1968 and it has been a magnet for golfers and holiday makers ever since.
