Club Five Cuts the Cost of
Golfing in the Algarve


One bedroom apartments in Europe¹s premier golfing region for £75 a week, and two bedroom apartments for £105. That¹s the deal being offered by Tempomar apartments, a smart, low-rise development of 72 units with its own bars, restaurant, tennis court, sauna and swimming pool in the unspoiled village of Burgau ­ around 90 minutes west of Faro and within striking distance of several great golf courses.

The owners of this development are offering a five-year rental scheme called Club Five. Members pay a one-off fee of £1,500. For the next five years they and their family can stay in a one or two-bedroom apartment for an unlimited number of weeks from October until June, in return for a rental fee of just £75 a week for a one bedroom apartment, or £105 for a two bedroom apartment. Weekly maid service, linen, use of the pool, hot tub, games room and tennis court is included, and there are no maintenance fees. Any immediate family member (parents or children) can enjoy the privileges ­ whether accompanied by the Club Five member or not.

Burgau, near Lagos, is picture-postcard white-walled fishing village, perched on a slope above the sea, and the perfect place to unwind after a day on the fairways. The village and the surrounding area have escaped over-development, thanks to a building restriction imposed 10 years ago by the Portuguese government, to protect this stretch of the western Algarve coast.

There¹s plenty to do in the region for non-golfing members of the party. There are wide, Atlantic-swept beaches that are great for surfing. There¹s sailing from Lagos marina. The coast offers perfect conditions for windsurfing and diving. There are game fishing boats for hire and facilities for many other activities from horse riding to microlight flying.

Understandably, golfers and their families come back year after year. But there¹s no need to sign up immediately for the Club Five deal. For those who want to try before they buy, Tempomar apartments are offering a special price of £115 a week for a one-bedroom apartment and £165 for a two-bedroom apartment, until the end of May 2001.
