While still located in Praia da Luz in Portugal's Algarve, Jonathan Markson has shifted venues to the 146-room Vila Baí, Jonathan Markson Tennis, Vila Baia, Praia da Luz, Algarve, Portugalsome 200-meters on foot from the rock and sandy shores of the bay in a picturesque, old Algarvian fishing village and close to the bustling, historic sea port of Lagos. Lodging consists of tastefully furnished one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, all with terraces. The beach, which gives Praia da Luz its name (the exact English translation of Praia da Luz is "Beach of Light"), is long with fine, pale sand. It is ideal for safe, relaxed bathing and is a five-minute walk from the club. The climate is sunny for most of the time throughout the year with the hotter temperatures of the summer mitigated by the cooling flow of a gentle breeze.

The tennis program itself consists of 15 hours of instruction/week on the resort's two hard courts. It is under the direction of Luis Machado, a top ranked player in Portugal in his youth and now one of its top seniors. The club also has three swimming pools and a pro shop. Golfers have the option of playing at several nearby courses.

Here's what others have had to say about Jonathan Markson Algarve Tennis Centre.

  • 3½-Ball Rating "I have attended the single players weeks that are organised regularly during the year a number of times, usually towards the end of the northern European outdoor season in late October. The weeks are divided into Improver/Intermediate or advanced player weeks. Number can vary but they have five courts and can take up to 25 players. Always worth checking with the organiser before you go what the standard of player will be. Many participants have been before and their level will be known as opposed to self certificated. Abilities are assessed on the first morning and groups formed for the daily sessions that run from 9-12pm with a break for coffee. The experienced coaches work with a different group each day. The format is basket drills with some games. The courts are artificial grass and the weather is usually very good. Thee courts are available for play in the afternoon and a competition is organised on the afternoon of the last day. The town of Luz has many good restaurants and the seafood is excellent. Markson has a lot of feedback on their website"—J.B., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 3-Ball Rating "Tennis - Luis and Vasco did a very good job at running the program, they assesed quickly the areas to improve on for each person. I have come back with a better serve and forhand. 9/10
    Location/Resort - this is a fantastic location resort - the rooms are spacious (I mean spacious) and clean and modern. The pool area is fantastic. Close to the Beach and the town of uz is walking distance, Lagos is a 5 min car ride. 9/10
    I will go back."
    —J.H., Adv. Int., September 2010
