Win a seven-night getaway to Portugal for the whole family, worth £8,000, courtesy of Club Med Da Balaia

Club Med Da Balaia, a luxury all-inclusive retreat on the Algarve, is offering House & Garden readers the chance to win a week-long family holiday

There are few things as enjoyable as a week spent relaxing on holiday in a beautiful setting. Just imagine seven nights with the whole family at a premium all-inclusive retreat, perched on the red cliffs of the Algarve. Courtesy of Club Med, this dream could become a reality for one lucky House & Garden reader.

The winner – along with another adult and two children – will fly from the UK, touching down in Faro before being transported to Club Med Da Balaia, the luxury all-inclusive resort. Located on the Algarve, the resort is within easy reach of Albufeira, Faro and Portimão, making it the perfect base from which to explore this sun-kissed corner of Portugal. Surrounded by lush vegetation and the Atlantic Ocean, the winners of this competition will stay in two interconnecting superior rooms in one of the hotel’s three buildings: Belem, Coimbra and Lisboa.

Those who wish to spend the week relaxing will find themselves in the perfect spot, as Da Balaia is the ideal place to unwind. Think tranquil pools and a luxurious spa, as well as yoga classes, an adults-only ‘zen zone’ and views of the inviting turquoise waters. Of course, no trip to the Algarve would be complete without a round of golf under the sun – and Da Balaia offers this quintessential experience in true style. There are multiple internationally renowned golf courses within easy reach of the resort, to which the dedicated golf concierge can arrange access for you, making it a golfer’s paradise.

And younger guests will find plenty to keep them entertained throughout their stay, with more than 60 child-friendly activities available for them to try at Da Balaia. For babies and young children, there are welcome childcare facilities in the form of Baby Club Med and Petit Club Med, so you can happily spend an afternoon resting or reading by the pool knowing that they are in safe hands. With mini golf, circus school, flying trapeze, a children’s pool and a variety of clubs, there is more than enough to fill their day and create special memories that will last for years to come.

Lovers of gourmet cuisine will not be disappointed, as Da Balaia has two fantastic restaurants offering delicious dishes from breakfast to dinner. The Balaia is the main restaurant on the resort, where fine food is accompanied by far-reaching views over the pool and out to the Atlantic beyond. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, this dining destination has something for everyone on its globally inspired buffet. For something special, guests should head to the newly opened Vasco Gourmet Lounge. This restaurant, lounge and wine cellar provides table service and a range of rich and varied local cuisine. And even better still, there is entertainment every evening after dinner, so you can enjoy musical performances – and more – under the Portuguese stars.

Return economy flights and transfers for two adults and two children are also included in the prize. Excursions and à la carte activities are not included. The competition will run from 5 June to 31 July 2023. The winners will be able to claim their prize immediately and travel from September 2023. Date exclusions apply. Winners must travel within 12 months.
