Style and sophistication are synonymous with Quinta do Lago. The resort was developed primarily as a quality golfing destination and has attracted visitors now for many years. A top favourite with Irish golfers and a huge draw for secure, family style holidays, the area is quiet, laid back and relaxing and exudes an air of exclusivity that belies its friendly and warm ambience.
This is a prestigious estate with the great benefit of a location at the mouth of the Ria Formosa nature reserve. Naturally, golf is the main attraction but, together with the proximity to Quinta do Lago beach and Almancil beach, there is no shortage of beach activities, watersports and sun worshipping on offer too. The Quinta shopping centre, situated at the entrance to Quinta do Lago, is a chic mall with elegant boutiques, high standard restaurants, cafe bars, designer shops and an English style pub. Bougainvilla Plaza close by has a bank, supermarket and news kiosk, so all daily needs are catered to in the direct vicinity.
Boasting no less than 3 excellent golf courses, Quinta do Lago is a privileged and luxurious holiday destination and the whole area is stunningly landscaped. A few discreet and high quality hotels, alongside beautiful private villas with swimming pools and an enormous "club" with vast swimming pool, sun terraces, bar and restaurant are the main draw for visitors and many have made this area an annual retreat!
