When they were started, Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo were just the two beaches of the town of Almancil. 40 years and many millions later, they have grown to become very wellknown residential and holiday developments for holidaymakers and golfers.
Quinta do Lago is one of Portugal’s finest exclusive golf and villa resorts set in 2000 acres of the most beautiful scenery in the Algarve within the Ria Formosa National Park. The villas of Quinta do Lago are set in lush countryside that rolls onto sandstone cliffs overlooking sandy beaches.
This natural setting guarantees that everything you do at Quinta do Lago will take place in dramatic and beautiful scenery. The fine forests, dating back centuries, and the parkland make this some of the best golfing country in Europe, and with 72 holes of championship golf it is a golf lover’s dream. Quinta do Lago also has a freshwater lake offering a variety of water sports from fishing to windsurfing. Alternatively stay dry on the tennis court or shooting some clay pigeons. If none of this appeals, you can simply enjoy the countryside on foot or from the comfort of a sun bed.
