With golf courses in Portugal permitted to open again on 5 April, the team at the Algarve’s stunning Amendoeira Golf Resort is welcoming families back and showing off its brand-new facilities. The resort, set over 270 hectares of beautiful, gently undulating land, has just undergone an extensive redevelopment, with owners Kronos Homes focusing on providing a luxurious and healthy experience for the whole family to enjoy.
A key part of Amendoeira’s offering is its extensive outdoor sporting facilities. They include a natural grass football field built to FIFA’s standards for professional teams, two AstroTurf five-a-side football fields, six tennis courts and two communal swimming pools. The crowning jewel is, of course, the resort’s two renowned 18-hole golf courses. They include the award-winning Faldo Course, designed by Sir Nick Faldo, and the challenging O’Connor Jnr. Course. There’s also an illuminated nine-hole course – the only one in Portugal – along with a golf academy, a driving range and a putting green.
Runners of all ages can enjoy using the one-kilometre jogging track, while the fully equipped gym is ideal for cardio and resistance training.
After all of that fresh air and exercise, families can relax in the stylish new clubhouse, sports bar or restaurant, which serves a mix of clubhouse classics and inventive Mediterranean dishes.
“We have taken a whole-family approach during the refurbishment of Amendoeira, so that the facilities appeal to our guests and homeowners of all ages. We have such a wealth of natural beauty all around us at the resort that it’s been wonderful to improve the existing facilities in a way that fits with that environment.” – Alda Filipe, Commercial Director, Kronos Homes
Families wanting to enjoy the safe, tranquil environment of Amendoeira Golf Resort have the option to purchase villas and apartments within the exceptionally well-maintained grounds. The low build density means that owners benefit from some outstanding views.
All owners can use a range of services designed to make life easier, from maid and laundry services to the provision of 24-hour security and a 16-hour reception service. Both apartments and villas can be purchased fully furnished, to ensure that families can relax and enjoy their new properties from day one, rather than spending their time worrying about sofa dimensions and delivery slots.
“Our approach has been to minimise stress and hassles for families wherever possible. Time spent at Amendoeira should be about making treasured memories in a relaxing, carefree environment. So we’ve provided a range of services to facilitate that.” – Alda Filipe, Commercial Director, Kronos Homes
Two-bedroom apartments at Amendoeira are priced from €285,000, while three-bedroom villas are available from €540,000. All villas come with their own private pools. Duplex apartments are also available, with the design incorporating lovely roof terraces overlooking the landscaped grounds.
The mix of property types means that families of all shapes and sizes can find their ideal first or second home at Amendoeira. Every property comes with a 40% discount for the on-site golf facilities, as well as providing easy access to some of the Algarve’s most stunning beaches. The local town of Silves is the perfect place to traipse from café to café, enjoying coffee and cake and watching the world go by. And the annual Medieval Fair that takes over the entire town every August is a deeply atmospheric event that the whole family will love.
Safe, welcoming and peaceful, Amendoeira Golf Resort has seen an 80% year-on-year rise in Villa type sales. The resort’s three- and four-bedroom villas with private pools have attracted particular interest. As well as the UK, international buyers hail from France, Sweden and Canada, creating a wonderfully multicultural community of owners.
