Quinta do Lago Championship golf course offering:
To play golf at Quinta do Lago is a joy for visitors and maybe more a way of life for those who decide to become members of this exclusive community.
In keeping with its heritage, Golf at Quinta do Lago enjoys the full spectrum of nature’s bounty. Each course has been designed in harmony with its environment and successfully crafted to take their position among the Top 25 rated golf courses in all of Europe. It has played host to several Portuguese Opens and continues to be a venue of choice for national and international competitions.
Each course is an experience of Augusta type fare and generous, lush fairways are intermittently decorated with clusters of pine, heather, broom and wild flowers and the carefully tended greens, considered among the best in Portugal are fast, true and sometimes humbling.
Natural water features are sprinkled throughout and bunkers break the landscape almost as a constant reminder, to golfers of all experience and ability, of the great challenge that lies ahead.
All courses enjoy first class driving ranges, a golf academy, putting greens, pro-shops and clubhouses with large and informal terraces – the perfect setting to relax with friends and family, to toast the victor or, console the vanquished.
The three courses at Quinta do Lago offer different challenges.
The terrain of the South and North course is comprised of firm, sandy Algarvean soil, that gives a helpful impetus off the tee. An array of features, including water, bunker and an undulating landscape makes the approach to each green memorable - rewarding the deft touch or the sleight of hand.
The ample greens are of Creeping Bent grass, the fairways Bermuda and the ever changing landscape and layout means no two shots are the same while the next hole is as individual, as the previous.
Complimenting Quinta do Lago’s existing resources and completing its offering is Laranjal.
Originally an orange grove, Laranjal has been nurtured by time, sculpted by nature and expertly designed to provide a world class golfing experience. With 6,500 metres of manicured terrain, it is a par 72, comprising five par 5s, eight par 4s and five par 3s
Vale do Lobo Championship golf course offering: Based on original concepts by the legendary Sir Henry Cotton and re-developed by the respected American golf architect Rocky Roquemore, the Vale do Lobo courses have twice been host to the Portuguese Open. Both take players through umbrella pine and fig tree-lined fairways to the Atlantic – the Royal playing dramatically along the cliff’s edge, while the Ocean sweeps daintily down to the beach. This combination of links and parkland golf provides an enjoyable game for golfers of all standards.
Vilamoura´s 5 Championship Golf Courses (Victoria, Old Course, Millennium, Laguna & Pinhal) are only a 20 minute drive.
Vilamoura Family Pitch & Putt mini 18 hole golf course fun for all the family.
WaterParks : AquaShow (10 minute Drive), ZooMarine (30 Minutes drive)

"Very relaxed and calm"
This villa complex was very quiet and relaxing. As the majority of the 12 are owner occupiers they would use them sporadically so I think when we were there only 4 were occupied. This meant that it was so peaceful. But the neighbours were very helpful and friendly. Pool is in superb condition as are the grounds. Cleaners come in and manicure the place. The villa itself is modern fresh and has most mod cons that anybody would need. The lady who looks after the complex met us there at the time agreed and gave us brief instructions etc. she left her number and was very efficient so if any problems she would sort it . The villa has two bedrooms upstairs and large shared bathroom with his and hers sinks. Also downstairs has another toilet. The entire villa is tiled so easy to keep and clean. Comfortable furnishings and the beds were hard but being honest we had a great sleep on them. All rooms have a/c but we never needed it as all doors and windows have fly screens so this meant windows wide open and a lovely breeze passed through. Although at first it seems off the beaten track, almancil is only a 7 min walk. There are shops bars and bakeries walking into the town and some great ones too. Close to the villa before you leave the minor road to join the main one there is a family run restaurant that we only found on the last day and wished we found sooner. You won't find this on trip adviser and hope you never do as its a hidden gem that the locals walk to and have food and a beer there. It would loose its charm and warmth if it was exposed. It's a great place for a base if playing golf or just going to the beach. My experience there is you always need a car. But to be fair if you did not want to drive the taxi journey to the airport is about 15-20 minutes max. And there are local hackney cars that are quite reasonable if going to any of the many fine restaurants in the area.
What I really liked about this villa was the quietness and the ability to relax. My 2 year old son happily pottered around the pool and grounds as it's gated in so there was no fear of him getting lost. Although he's young he can swim but still you would be vigilant as the pool has a great deep end. Shallow end is above waist height so still young children would not be touching the floor.
I would have happily stayed a second week there. I was over for a wedding that started in Santa Barbara de Nexe which is 12 min away then off to os ogostos wedding venue, then next day in Quinta da laga/ vale do lobo so this was central to all of these places. Most people in these mentioned areas have to come to almancil to do their shopping. So to sum it up. It's central. Value for money. Very relaxing and quiet.

"Very nice accommodation with lovely pool"
Very good quality accommodation with lovely pool. Everything you need for a peaceful holiday, would recommend a car we did manage with taxis but not ideal. Almost impossible to fault the accommodation except the nearest supermarket was around 15 minutes walk. Would definitely go back.

"Fantastic pool area"
The accommodation was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything we needed. The large pool and garden area was beautiful and where we spent most of our time. Would definitely stay here again!

"Lovely villa, quiet location"
My partner and I booked this villa just a few weeks before we went and we were very pleased with every aspect of the booking. We emailed the owner direct, had a quick response and were given a late check out. The villa is in a quiet location with 11 other villas, it has a very well kept pool and beautiful gardens. There were only us and another Vila occupied for most of our stay so it was like having our own private pool. The villa was well equipped with everything you would need including beach towels. We were greeted at the villa on arrival and everything was explained to us in detail including how to use the satellite t.v. We were also given directions to the nearest supermarket for our provisions and given a number to call if we needed help with anything. The villa was immaculately clean and the beds and sheets were of high quality. There were several restaurants within walking distance with varying price ranges. I would thoroughly recommend the Quinta Madeira villas to anyone wanting a quiet holiday in a tucked away location with easy access to the exclusive golden triangle area.

"Lovely, tranquil house with great pool - recommended"
We stayed here for a week, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The house is perfectly equipped with everything you could possibly need, and is in a very quiet area away from busy roads. The pool is fantastic and quite large considering it serves only a few houses, and there is plenty of room for sun loungers around it. We were lucky enough to have the pool to ourselves for 5 days during out week there. The outdoor seating area on the ground floor is great for relaxing in the shade or having dinner, and each bedroom also benefits from its own balcony which is a big bonus (2 clothes driers included).
The house is on the outskirts of Almancil, so it's best to drive to the beach (10 mins to Vale do Lobo/Quarteira) and supermarkets (5 minutes to Pingo and Apolonia). There are also heaps of beaches to explore further west towards and past Albufeira, which is only 20 minutes or so in the car. There are plenty of dining options too - a couple of top restaurants within walking distance, and some local ones too (we really enjoyed the friendly service and grilled meat at O Apeadeiro just over the train tracks on the road into Almancil centre), and many more around the centre of Almancil and further.
All in all, the perfect place to relax for a week or to use as a base for exploring the local area and beaches. We would definitely go back to this house again in the future. The photos are very representative of what you get. Highly recommended.

"Welcoming, Clean, Bright, well- maintained, perfect for small families"
The house is bright, spacious and welcoming, we stayed for one week and we had an amazing time. The house is in a quiet location, it has all of the mod coms that you require and English TV. Our 17 months old loved running around on the terrace. We had a car and find it very useful as it made it easier to explore the area. The owner was lovely he even sourced a travel cot for us. Great Villa, great Holiday I would definitely recommend it and we would go back.

"Very pretty house in quiet location"
The house was very pretty and surrounded by pleasant gardens with direct access to the pool from the terrace. The property was very clean and well equipped and furnished to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. Almancil is a lively small town with lots of cafes and restaurants very close by. The fashionable resorts of Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago are only a short drive away and have some excellent top class restaurants - Alambique and Casa da Quinta being our favourites. Vilamoura with its large marina surrounded by restaurants is also well worth visiting.
