The OceÃ¢nico Group offers 7 great reasons for investors to choose the Vilamoura Golf & Garden Resort, other than the sheer quality of the residences and their setting. Simply put, those reasons are membership of seven of Europe's finest golf courses, either quite literally on your doorstep or just a short drive away. Properties at this resort will come with a golf title granting privileged membership not only to the five golf courses in Vilamoura but also to the two brand new courses at Amendoeira Golf Resort, located just 25 minutes away in the district of Silves. These two courses have been designed by Nick Faldo and Christy O'Connor Jnr and are due to open spring 2008 and autumn 2008 respectively.
The five star residential complex of the Vilamoura Golf & Garden Resort is set close to all of OceÃ¢nico's five Vilamoura golf courses, closest to the OceÃ¢nico Pinhal course, and just 5 minutes drive from both the beach and the central marina area.
The stunning architecture will be designed along a Moorish theme to reflect local influences. The luxury properties will offer spacious living in a mix of two and three-bedroom apartments with communal pools, and four & five bedroom detached villas all with private pools.
The central feature of this resort will be the stunning landscaped gardens, carefully crafted by celebrity landscape designer Diarmuid Gavin.
Diarmuid is the most imaginative and inspirational garden designer working in Britain today, and we are delighted that he is bringing his unique style to Portugal in creating the setting for our fantastic resort.
The gardens will be both luxurious and relaxing and will fully reflect the Moorish theme of the resort. They will combine vibrant colourful arid planting suitable for the climate of the Algarve, with lakes and pools and tranquil walkways and an abundance of secluded Moroccan-style pavilions throughout the site will create private outdoor retreats.
The facilities and amenities at Vilamoura Golf & Garden resort will comprise:

In March 2007 the OceÃ¢nico Group acquired 5 of the world renowned golf courses of Vilamoura - OceÃ¢nico Victoria, where the Portugal Masters will be held 2007 - 2009; The OceÃ¢nico Old Course; OceÃ¢nico Pinhal; OceÃ¢nico Millennium; and OceÃ¢nico Laguna.
OceÃ¢nico Victoria Clube de Golfe
, designed by Arnold Palmer, was recently named Best Portuguese Golf Course 2006 in the annual Publituris Awards, voted best by the readers of Publituris Magazine and an independent jury of tourism professionals.
The OceÃ¢nico Old Course
, a parkland style par-73 layout, is one of the oldest in the region, having opened in 1969, and is renowned all over the golfing world.
was the second golf course built in Vilamoura and inaugurated in 1976. It is typified by rolling parkland terrain covered with numerous umbrella and Atlantic pines that line many of the fairways and a few even stand out on fairways or near greens.
. Opened in 1990 and laid out over low-lying coastal terrain, this course, with its many water hazards and few trees, is considerably different from the other ones at the resort and many of its holes convey a links atmosphere.
. This conventional par-72 course opened in 2000, although the completely refurbished back nine holes - formerly part of the 27-hole Laguna course - had been completed in their original configuration a decade before.
