Portugal is one of Europe's great golfing destinations and not least because of the brilliant outdoor weather. British golfers in particular get used to trudging round UK courses under an umbrella as the heavens open once more and the green becomes sodden. But Portugal has none of these issues since the weather is near perfect, all year round.
There are courses available for all tastes and abilities, with many world class courses drawing in the golfing elite for their annual break. With more than 70 courses from which to choose, Portugal also hosts major tournaments such as the Portugal Masters. Many of the courses have been designed by famous architects such as Rocky Roquemore, Arnold Palmer and Henry Cotton.
With so many courses dotted around the country, it's not surprising that many golfers choose to return here year on year and invest in a timeshare property as a base from which to explore. Whether you're looking for a new opportunity or looking into the timeshare resales market, there is ample choice for the golfer and their family. The great golfing ethos also provides another pool of buyers for those looking to sell their timeshare. And a reputable timeshare resales company will know the best way to tap into this market.
The Algarve area is particularly popular with tourists of all types. This makes it the perfect spot for families who want their golfer to be able to enjoy the courses, but still want to be able to indulge in some family activities too. Other activities that are popular in the Algarve area include horse riding, water sports and, of course, making the most of the miles and miles of coastline, with its numerous beaches.
The culture and the architecture of the country should not be overlooked and heading a little further away from the main tourist areas will give visitors a glimpse of the real Portugal in all its diverse splendour. Some of the more popular cultural sites include the Fortress at Sagres, the Cerro da Vila and St. Lawrence's Church at Almancil. Portugal has such a rich history that it really would be a shame to take a trip to this country and miss out on the historical and cultural sights, although with so much in the way of entertainment available, it can be difficult to fit everything in in one visit. This is one of the many reasons that the timeshare resales market is still going strong.
