Enjoy a Fun-Filled Family Holiday at Penina Resort This October
Family-Friendly Facilities at Penina
However, the cherry on the cake is our world-class kids club. 3,000m2 dedicated to fun with fully supervised indoor and outdoor play areas that include games, toys, a swimming pool, football pitch, bike track… and much more! While younger members of the family are having the time of their lives, parents can explore our leisure facilities and perhaps take the opportunity to enjoy a round or two on our legendary 18-hole Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course...
Prefer the less-is-more approach to holidays? Opt for lying back on one of our pool-side loungers, a warm breeze in the air and a clear blue sky above. Or perhaps indulge in a massage, treat skin to a trip to the sauna, or enjoy a pampering session in our onsite beauty salon. Once polished from head-to-toe, head over to one of our many fine-dining destinations and indulge a little more in a range of local and international gourmet dishes. The best bit? Kids eat for free with our five night family package, from just €167 per room per night.
What's on in the Algarve This October?
International sand sculpture festival, FIESA, will be open until the 30th of October and is located just 18 minutes from our hotel. This year’s theme is music, so expect to see iconic rock stars and instruments feature heavily within what has become the largest sand sculpture exhibition in the world. It also offers the chance to learn more at workshops and demonstrations, and enjoy live music, dance and circus performances.
Though a little further away, Faro’s Santa Iria Fair should be worth the journey. Not only is it one of the largest fairs in the Algarve, it’s also thought to have started earlier than 1596, making it one of the oldest too. Thrill-seekers can enjoy the variety of rides on offer, while the rest of the family can browse stalls selling candy floss, fritters, candied fruit and arts and crafts. Enjoy hours of fun here between the 14th and 23rd.
Autódromo Internacional do Algarve is home to karting tracks, including one specially designed for children, an off-road park, racing school and one of Europe’s leading professional circuits. This impressive track boasts 32 different layout options and has hosted the likes of the Superbike World Championships and the International GT Open (find out more here). As well as offering all the above, it’ll also be hosting the Algarve Classic Festival between the 28th and 30th of October.
Over 380 drivers will be taking part in the festival’s 10 European Classics Championships, which will include the GT&Sport Car Cup featuring Pre-1966 GT and pre-1963 sports cars. Take this unique opportunity to watch as some of the world’s most admired classic cars compete and in the words of the event’s organiser ‘…appreciate the beauty… of hearing an Aston Martin DB4 Zagato or a Ferrari 512M racing at full throttle’. Located less than 15 minutes from our resort, this is a must-see for car fans and their families this October.
Last, but definitely not least, the Portugal Masters will be taking place between the 20th and 23rd at Oceânico Victória, just 40 minutes from Penina. Andy Sullivan’s nine shot victory last year will be hard to follow… but we’re looking forward to seeing this year’s contenders try! The European Tour tournament will see leading international players compete for €2,000,000 prize money in the Algarve – offering the ideal day out for golf fans staying at Penina this October.
From world-class golf to racing cars, fairground rides and the ultimate sand castles, the Algarve can boast an exciting array of attractions this autumn! If you’re planning a family holiday in the Algarve this October, take a look at our five-night package that includes daily buffet breakfast, three dinners per person, exclusive discounts and much more!
We look forward to welcoming you to Penina for a fun-filled half term this October!
