The Algarve region
Throughout the Algarve, old traditions mingle with more cosmopolitan ways of life in a landscape of outstanding natural beauty. A land of contrasts, of sheer cliffs and rolling hills and beautiful beaches. There are vast stretches of fine golden sand, extensive dunes and sandy coves backed by spectacular cliffs and rock formations all along the Algarve coast. The Algarve has much to offer the discerning traveller and to suit your particular tastes and holiday plans.
For those looking for activity holidays, the Algarve is one of Europe's premier golfing destinations whilst the tennis schools offer fantastic facilities. Water sports are second to none with waterskiing, scuba-diving, big game fishing and dolphin spotting trips available at most beach resorts.
Getting around the Algarve is relatively easy with an excellent road system following the coast and, for those who do not have a car, public transport is available. With everything so accessible, even the villas some distance inland can be just a few minutes' drive from the nearest towns and beaches. Portugal is famous for its port and also produces excellent wine which is not often found beyond its shores. There is a wonderful selection of cosmopolitan restaurants, more modest eateries and bustling cafes offering mouth-watering local dishes, fresh fish, and spicy piri-piri, along with flavours and cuisine from around the world. Holiday makers considering renting a villa in the Algarve are assured that there is truly something for everyone.
Quinta do Lago
This popular and sought-after complex is set in breathtaking scenery and offers a range of amenities including a shared, palm fringed swimming pool with separate children's' area. Enjoy chilled wine and light snack at the poolside bar (open June to September) or enjoy the view from the central island linked to shore by three wooden bridges. For fine dining, there is the excellent Tuscanos a la carte restaurant offering international cuisine prepared from fresh, local produce and which also provides a take-a-way service for resident clients. For the more energetic, there are two floodlit tennis courts offering group or individual lessons, whilst the gym offers an impressive range of work out equipment and clients can book an appointment with a personal fitness trainer. Afterwards, relax in the sauna or the spa which offers beauty therapy, massage, aquatic therapy and physiotherapy. Further afield all the resources of the Quinta do Lago resort are on offer, including the 10,000sqm shopping centre modelled on London's Covent Garden. Less than a ten minute drive away are the prestigious resorts of Dunas Douradas and Vale do Lobo. Between them they have two superb 18-hole golf courses, a Tennis Academy and a wide choice of beach bars and cafes, offering traditional and international mouth-watering cuisine. The golden sand beaches of the resorts are bordered by red sandstone cliffs and are lapped by the aquamarine waters of the Atlantic Ocean. A fifteen minute drive takes you to the exclusive resort of Vilamoura and its picturesque marina with pavement cafes, bars, designer boutiques and international restaurants. A variety of marine excursions leave from here, including big game fishing, charter yachts and dolphin spotting. A twenty-five minute drive inland takes you to the small village of Guia, famous for its spectacular Zoo-Marine park with shows featuring parrots, sea lions and dolphins. There is even the opportunity to swim with the dolphins.
