How to get there

Directions - from the car hire areas at Faro airport follow the signs for the airport exit. You will come to a roundabout with a statue in the centre of it. Keep to the right lane which will take you straight on at the roundabout without having to stop for oncoming traffic. Direction - Faro. You will now be on highway. There will be a turnoff for Montenegro and after half a mile you will see a turn off to the right for Faro. Do not take this turn but the one immediately after signposted Portimao. You will bear right and come round in a circle and will end up going west (as if you had tried to turn left at the highway). You will now be on N125-10 following signs for LISBON/LOULE. After a series of traffic lights, a couple of miles later, there will be a fork off to your right signposed FARO/ALMANCIL. Take this fork to the right which will continue back over the road that you had just left. After a couple more miles there will be a further turn off to the right signposted ALMANCIL. Take this turn. (PLEASE NOTE at this point there will be a church on your right hand side - this is the church of Sao Laurenco – It is referred to in the Welcome File at the villa) Follow the road into ALMANCIL As you approach the town, there will be a traffic light. At this 1st traffic light get in the left hand lane and turn left. You will start to see signs and posters for Quinta do Lago here. You will proceed down a one-way street and then the road becomes 2-way. After approx. 200 yards there will be a turn to your left. Take this left turn and continue all the way to the end (approx. 1.5 miles). You will then arrive at a roundabout with a large Q and a fountain in the middle. You have arrived at Quinta do Lago! (PLEASE NOTE this Q Roundabout as if you look to your right this is where a lot of shops & local supermarket are) At this Q roundabout take the 3rd exit and at the next roundabout turn right. Follow the road straight down over 2 more roundabouts. Keep on going straight until you see a Centro Hippico (Horse Riding Centre) on your right. If you look left you will see the sign for Lakeside Village. Take this 1st left and as soon as you pass the green wall on your right there will be a little road on the right & my villa will be the 2nd one on the right after that little road - 471. You have arrived. Please feel free to park in the carport if you wish.
