West Coast  Portugal Golf Holidays

This fabulous golfing region starts at the Portuguese capital and leads all the way to the Atlantic coast. It might not be as famous as the Algarve for golf but it’s a real treasure  trove and terrific value too.

Just two hours from UK airports, Lisbon is one of Europe’s most elegant capitals: relatively small but decadent in places with museums, impressive public gardens and some gorgeous hotels.

Throughout the region, we’ve picked a brilliant selection of accommodation – from top-value apartments to some of the most stylish accommodation in Southern Europe.

There are four mini-regions on the Lisbon Coast – around the capital, in and around Cascais, south at Setubal and up the coast near Peniche.  The names of the towns might not be familiar but they’re a treat to visit and the golf resorts  and sights make the Lisbon Coast a very serious golf destination indeed.

Playing and staying in the capital, West Cost  Portugal  Golf Holidays, give you the opportunity to savour the flavour and architecture of the city with its lively nightlife, excellent restaurants and small but select choice of courses.

West Coast  Portugal Golf Breaks

On the coast around Estoril (about 45 minutes from Lisbon) there’s a fine mix of lively resorts like Cascais and tucked away villages like Sintra.  And the golf – very, very good with the World Top 100 course and resort of Oitavos leading the way.

Troia (90 minutes south-west from Lisbon) is worth the trip alone and has long been a feature on all the lists of Europe’s finest courses.  Secluded and bang on the Atlantic coast, Our Lisbon - West Coast  Portugal Golf Breaks is the place to go where golf is very much top of your agenda.

And 90 minutes north-west of Lisbon, is the trio of Praia d’El Rey, Bom Successo and Campo Real.  There is fantastic value on offer here and the local towns such as Obidos and Lourinha offer yesteryear eating and drinking prices.

Obidos, Nazare, Fatima and Batalha Day Trip – Take in three of the seven Portuguesel Wonders and the Sanctuary of 'Our Lady' at Fatima. Plus, two UNESCO World Heritage sites!  The tour includes lunch at the picturesque medieval fishing village of Nazar.
Heading north from Lisbon on this day trip into a bygone era, your first stop is Obidos;  a fortified village of whitewashed houses and narrow streets has a distinctly medieval atmosphere and is a great place to relax and watch the world go by.  At Alcobaca you will visit the famous gothic Monastery.  Lunch is taken at Nazare, one of Portugal's most colourful and traditional fishing villages.
In the afternoon you will visit the wonderful Batalha Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a masterpiece in Gothic style with beautiful stained-glass windows. Finally, you will arrive at the world-famous pilgrimage site of Fatima, where 'Our Lady' appeared in 1917. You will have free time in Fatima to visit the Shrine.   Just outside Fatima in Ajulstrel, you'll see the houses of the three shepherd children - Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta - to whom the vision of 'Our Lady' appeared.

Lisbon Two Hour River Cruise -  See Lisbon from a different angle as you take a leisurely cruise down the Tagus River and past Lisbon's monuments scattered along the hills.  One of the highlights of a Lisbon river cruise is the panoramic views of Parque das Nacoes. As with all great riverside cities, a cruise on the river is a must when visiting Lisbon.

Arraiolos and Evora – Unesco World Heritage City - This tour invites you to discover the amazing Alentejo region and two of its most important highlights: Evora and Arraiolos.  Leaving Lisbon early in the morning you will cross the rolling plains of this almost unexplored region where the olive and cork oak trees are abundant and essential to the region's economy and lifestyle.  The town of Evora, is an astonishingly well-preserved piece of history.  With your guide you will be invited to visit the Saint Francis Church and the sinister Chapel of the Bones proving that life for some might have been just one more step towards the desired eternity.  Walking up the old narrow streets you'll reach the central Giraldo Square and then onto the top of Evora and the 13th-Century Cathedral and the  Roman Temple.  And in one of the hidden corners of Evora lies the core of all its knowledge and perseverance: the 16th-Century University where still today hundreds of students study.
Lunch is in one of the much celebrated restaurants in Evora, you will visit the village of Arraiolos. The 'eternal bride' as it is called by locals is a splash of immaculate white washed houses on the golden plains and blue skies.
Estoril Casino - The inspiration for James Bond’s Casino Royale, Estoril is one of the classic casino’s of Europe and one of the largest. Tremendous fun in the heart of one of the most extraordinary resorts on the Lisbon coast.

Surfing - Lisbon Coast surfing has a great reputation and the glorious beaches of the Lisbon coast are a Mecca for surfers. You can learn in resorts like Praia D'El Rey and Carcavelos.  There’s also excellent canoeing and fishing on rivers and lakes in the region.

Costa da Caparica - Don’t miss this 18 mile stretch of  fine beaches, sand dunes, coves and lagoons.

Dear Team, 

We are just back from our trip to Quinta da Marinha and the Onyria.

Thank you for recommending and organising this excellent holiday. The place was ideal for us - we enjoyed the hotel and its facilities, visited Lisbon, Cascais, and Sintra, and I found the golf courses to be just what I hoped. The staff at the hotel and golf course were all most friendly and helpful.

We asked you to find a holiday for us with several criteria, and you came up with something that met every one.

With regards

Mr Bull
