Choosing a Villa Holiday in the Algarve’s Golfing Region

Posted on November 30, 2018 at 2:01 pm

Are you dreaming of a little more sun at this dreary time of year? Luckily for you, there are plenty of options for beautiful villa holidays in sunnier climes, with beautiful scenery to enjoy, lots of good food and plenty of activities. Of course, a villa holiday is all about relaxing as well. Balaia Golf Village villas allow you to do all of this and more, making a perfect setting for your next holiday or weekend away.

Balaia Golf Villagae is set in the heart of Portugal’s Algarve region. It is close to Albufeira, as well as to other places like Vilamoura, Faro and Ferrarias. It is also within easy travelling distance of Faro airport, which is easy to fly into from the UK. All year round, you can get reasonably priced flights that will allow you to pop over to Portugal for an easy, relaxing break.

That being said, if you are into sport and activities, then Balaia Gold Village will have plenty for you. As the name suggests, it is part of a golf resort, with a 9 hole 3 par executive golf course that guests can enjoy. There is also a driving range available on the site. Many people choose to stay here during a golfing break, as it is in such close proximity to golfing destinations throughout the Algarve, as well as having its on golf course. This is a major benefit for those wanting to enjoy a weekend (or a week, or two weeks!) of golf.

Due to its location, there is plenty to do for everyone, not just the golf enthusiasts. This is why a villa holiday in the Algarve is such a good idea for a family – everyone will be kept entertained, with beautiful beaches and swimming pools.

The villas themselves are stunning and will really make your holiday for you. There is a wide range of accommodation available, so you can choose the type and size of villa that will suit your family. There are generally between one and five bedrooms in the properties, with apartments available within the villas as well for small groups or couples. All accommodations comes with a kitchen that has modern cooking facilities, perfect if you have a young family and children who might not be as keen as sampling the local cuisine as you are! Many of the properties also come with some of their own outdoor space for you to enjoy, and some of the villas and apartments look out over the golf course for stunning views. You will be close to the remainder of the complex, so the swimming pools and club house and restaurant are all within easy reach of your accommodation.

Entertaining Young Children on Holiday 

Posted on August 30, 2018 at 10:52 pm

Whilst a holiday will have many magical moments for you and your family, it can also pose difficulties for families with young children. It’s never easy when children are going to be getting out of their routine, and when you know the weather will be quite warm for them. It’s always good to go on holiday with a realistic expectation of how your children will behave, so that you can prepare.

It’s important to stay somewhere that is child friendly, that will have plenty for you to do as a family. When your children are being entertained, they are much more likely to be well behaved and to have fun. Choose your hotel carefully and check that it is family and child friendly; swimming pools for kids, water slides and clubs are always welcome options for a family. Bigger hotels will also tend to have some good activities, like kids’ clubs and holiday clubs.

Getting the Most Out of the Christmas Holidays

Posted on October 30, 2017 at 11:22 pm

Christmas is now only a few weeks away – where has the year gone? If you get some time off over the Christmas period, it’s nice to be able to make the most of it and not to just sit at home eating turkey. Here are some ideas for Christmas breaks:

  • Head out for daytrips. The UK has lots of beautiful destinations and many are right on your doorstep. Make an effort to go a little further afield than you usually would over Christmas.
  • Book cheap flights to a destination for the New Year. This is a great time of year to travel as everyone is in a good mood and you’ll meet some great people.
  • Enjoy a romantic Christmas break away. Take some time out for yourself this year and rather than hosting a lavish Christmas celebration at your house, go away with your partner for a few days, in Europer or the UK.

Some Alternative Travel Options to Flying

Posted on September 1, 2017 at 3:07 pm

Flying is not right for everyone. Some people find they don’t like the sensation of being so high up and out of control. Others prefer not to have the stress of starting their holiday in an airport, surrounded by other stressed people and with the potential for huge delays. If this applies to you, we have some alternative options for you to consider:

  1. Driving. Take your car to Europe with you and give yourself the freedom of being able to drive to different destinations. Make the travelling a part of the trip and take some scenic routes.
  2. Sailing. Ferries can be very good value for money and you can take your car with you as well if you want to.
  3. Train. Use a train like the Eurostar to get to another country or take local trains. You will see some amazing sights along the way, especially if you take a mountain or coastal route.
