We’ve had two football matches against decent opposition along with a programme of training sessions at this superb facility here in the east Algarve.”

Sparta Rotterdam

“Thanks again for a brilliant stay at Colina Verde. The facilities, service and hospitality were great! The sleeping accommodation was excellent. The football pitch was immaculate! The grass was soft and firm at the same time. It felt very good and helped enormously in our training exercises during the week. In my opinion it is one of the best pitches I have ever trained on. Definitely the best pitch in the Algarve.”
