First for Bridge on the Algarve

We are thrilled to be returning to the welcoming Holiday Inn on the Algarve.  First for Bridge Guests can enjoy the excellent dining in the Por do Sol Restaurant with its panoramic ocean views and commend its friendly and efficient service.  It really is a stunning beach-front location, directly overlooking the magnificent sandy beach of Armacao de Pera. Shops, cafes, and restaurants are within a strolling distance of the hotel, and regular buses run to nearby towns and villages, making it an excellent central point from which to explore the Algarve. Relax in the outdoor swimming pool overlooking the beach which is heated during the winter months, when the weather is usually a pleasant average 20 degrees. Walk along the beach and watch the fishermen unload their daily catch. Golfers will appreciate the choice of golf courses nearby and the hotel has a dedicated golf desk with preferential golf rates for all hotel clients.

Chris and Linda Benneworth

Linda and Chris have been married since 1971, having met while they were teaching at the same high school.

Following successful careers in education they retired in the late nineties, when they started directing together, working at first in local and more recently in overseas congresses. They ran the North Eastern Bridge Association Congress for a number of years in Otterburn, Consett and Gateshead, an event with a deserved reputation for friendliness. Since 2019, they have worked as hosts and director at EBU overseas congresses in Athens, Sicily and Rome. They even play together occasionally to ensure there are full tables. Chris is an EBU national director who also teaches others the art of directing and Linda is a qualified County director.

They both believe that bridge is a great game which is meant to be enjoyed; a holiday is the perfect way of doing that.
