Five-bed villa in Praia da Luz, western Algarve in Portugal

Praia da Luz, Portugal
An alternative to the chic hot spots of the Golden Triangle, home to a selection of smart tennis clubs, is the smaller but friendly resort of Praia da Luz in the western Algarve. There, the complexes of Estrela da Luz and Baía da Luz both offer a selection of quality courts that are centrally located and used by the Jonathan Markson Tennis Academy.

Between work-outs on court, there are some spectacular beaches to explore in Praia da Luz itself and the surrounding area, while the resort’s pretty old town is always worth a wander and a great spot for a dinner of fresh fish. Being Portugal, golf is never far away and close-by options include the course at Boavista Resort near Lagos.
