Unmatched Location
The Algarve

Match Algarve rises in the transition area between the coast of the Algarve and the mountains, strategically implanted within a harmonious ensemble of valleys and hills, making it a rare example that combines forest, pinewoods, vineyard and seven large dams.

Deployed in the Herdade da Corte do Bispo, you will find yourself only 40 minutes away from the Faro International Airport, 10 minutes from the International Racetrack airfield (Autódromo Internacional de Portimão) and 15 minutes from the city of Lagos, with its fabulous beaches and great touristic and leisure offer.

The privileged location of this development offers Teams an ideal opportunity to increase their training periods, both by its unmatched location and the typical Mediterranean climate, with warm and dry summers and mild winters with many sunny days and little rainfall.


From its fabulous gastronomy, with fresh fish and shellfish, to the almond- and fig-based sweets, wines and liquors, temptation teases the taste of those who visit the Algarve.

Teams and Athletes have at their disposal a large option of entertainment and leisure activities that they may enjoy in their free time. Lagos, the closest city to Match Algarve, faces the sea, with its prestigious and award-winning Marina de Lagos, recently awarded with 5 stars.

The cities around the sports complex also offer a wide option of bars and quality restaurants, and also Casinos of excellence (Casino da Praia da Rocha is 20 km away and Casino de Vilamoura is 40 km away) both with a glamorous atmosphere, that, besides the exciting gambling, also provide great musical and dance shows.

Besides the sport events, this infrastructure can provide relaxing and fun moments for the athletes staying at Match Algarve. They may enjoy several “racing experiences” on motorbikes, cars and Karts. Golf is another greatly enjoyed sport in the Algarve. Internationally recognized and praised, this region is also called “the golf paradise”. There are over 80 courses, of which approximately 10 are not more than 15 km away from Match Algarve.

Nature and Tradition

The Algarve is, for sure, the “the best kept secret of Europe”: the combination of its several aspects is unique and almost rare. Starting from the coastline and its golden cliffs, thin-sand beaches, and moving towards the interior of the Algarve through paths that provide lovely walks and bike rides, the opportunities to enjoy nature and the pure air offered by this location are several.

As a fine example, we have the beaches of D. Ana and Praia do Alemão, considered two of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the Via Algarviana, which is a large pedestrian route that connects Alcoutim to Cabo de S. Vicente, with an extension of 300 km mostly located within the mountain range of the Algarve, where the “bird watching” has been growing.

But the Algarve does not only boast its natural beauty: teams and athletes can also visit museums and observe castles or the Arab and Roman ruins scattered across the entire Algarve region.
