Quinta do Lago – Luxury Villa Guide
Lying just 20 minutes away from Faro airport, Quinta do Lago is one of the most exclusive resorts in Europe, offering guests a private and secluded retreat, with world class facilities and stunning scenery.
A true haven for golfers, there's much more to Quinta do Lago than meets the eye, with lots of activities to keep both adults and children entertained.
The resort maintains its private and discreet atmosphere because of the restrictions on the number of buildings. Lying next to the Ria Formosa National Park, none of the buildings are more than two storeys high and there are very strict limitations on the number which can be built. This ensures the area around Ria Formosa fits in harmoniously with the nature and wildlife, complementing the raw beauty of the landscape.
An oasis of tranquility and luxury, Quinta do Lago offers the perfect blend of peace and quiet and activities, with plenty of things to do if you can tear yourself away from either the golf course or the beach!
However, the accommodation itself is worthy of a mention, each with a fabulous design and kitted out with top of the range equipment and creature comforts.
There's a range of different villages contained within Quinta do Lago, with apartments, secluded villas as well as a five star hotel on the edge of the nature reserve itself.
All of the accommodation is world class, guaranteeing privacy while you relax and enjoy yourself. Here's a closer look at what you can expect if you choose to stay in one of the villas on the resort.
