Location Guide: Portugal – Quinta do Lago
Set amidst luscious scenery and some of the most beautiful coastline that the Algarve has to offer, the rolling Quinta Do Lago resort area is without doubt one of the finest and most prestigious parts of Portugal. You can’t fault the location in any way at all, as on both sides the resort is flanked by the rolling blue of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful greenery of the Ria Formosa National Park. The resort offers both high quality resort experiences for visitors and also high-end Quinta do Lago luxury properties for people looking to live as part of this idyllic region on a more permanent basis.
The resort has a huge range of activities – more of which later – but is especially focussed upon providing some of the best designed and enjoyable golf courses in the world. Golf purists will need to respect these cunning courses that have been designed by some of the biggest names in the game, and with three championship quality courses on site and two more within a very short journey, it’s going to be difficult to know where to start! The courses are nothing short of delightful to play with long luscious greens and prominent water features to navigate throughout, all in the splendour of glorious pine trees, wild flowers and the characteristic heathers that boarder the national park. As would be expected, all of these courses offer exemplary club house facilities and a fully accredited academy with tutorial sessions.
Of course the other main attraction to the Algarve is its most obvious and famous feature, the luscious three kilometres of golden bronze beach that is easily accessible by crossing a bridge from the resort complex. Quinta Do Lago is so pure that it has been awarded a prestigious blue flag for the careful management that ensures the beaches are kept spotlessly clean and the water quality second to none. Visitors or residents looking to get into the water are well served by the water sport centre that provides all kinds of activities ranging from jet skis and banana boating through to water skiing.
Being surrounded by such natural beauty makes Quinta Do Lago a haven for those who love the outdoors, with many kilometres of nature trails for those who like to walk or cycle. Indeed one of the most commonly remarked upon features of the resort is that despite its size it has a very tranquil air, there’s very little in the way of passing traffic and once in the parks you really do feel entirely at peace with nature. Ample provision is also provided for those who enjoy a game of tennis or like to work out in a fully equipped professional gym, and this service provides group cycling and fitness sessions suitable for those of all abilities.
It’s easy to see why so many people are coming to visit this most stunning example of luxury property and lifestyle in Portugal, and indeed why so many check out the on-site residential accommodation even after just their first visit. Make no mistake, this is a place you’ll want to return to, and it may just be heaven on earth for golf fans in particular!
