Location: Algarve | Portugal
The Vila Real de Santo António Sports Centre is located in Portugal, in the Algarve region. Close to the major routes of Lisbon and Spain, as well as Faro International Airport, this location benefits from a mild climate all year round and a vast area of surrounding forest.

Its close proximity to Monte Gordo, an excellent tourist area, makes training in this Sports Centre even more tempting, where jogging or bicycle riding takes the athletes right to the hotel resorts offering them a complete and quality stay. The vast beach, very close to the complex, provides a much needed rest and relaxation area in the fine sand of Monte Gordo Bay.
