The Algarve region
This spacious & private villa is situated in Lakeside Village, within Quinta Do Lago. Quinta do Lago is a prestigious & exclusive residential & recreational estate set amongst pine forests, a lagoon & a lake at the southern tip of Portugal. The resort enjoys a unique location in an area of outstanding natural beauty, bordering the Rio Formosa Natural Park, one of the last unspoilt coastal zones in Europe. The region boasts one of the highest number of sunshine hours in Europe & it is also famous for its 4 championship golf courses. Quinta do Lago has its own shopping centre, modelled on London's Covent Garden, offering fabulous boutiques & restaurants. If you are feeling more adventurous, then a visit to the covered market in Loule on Saturday morning is a must! You will find a wide selection of locally grown fresh fruit & vegetables, freshly caught fish, butchers and local artisans selling pottery and other arts & crafts. There is also a flea market in Loule on Saturday, as well as in Quartiera on Wednesday, where you can purchase everything from clothes and pots & pans, to pottery & shoes - don't forget to haggle! Eating out in Quinta do Lago & the surrounding area is a true pleasure. There are many restaurants offering an excellent range of national & international cuisine to suit all tastes & budgets. Alternatively, you can dine al-fresco by your own romantically-lit pool having prepared your meal on the built-in barbeque. The beach is only moments away & there is a large lake with all watersport facilities within walking distance. In the evenings you can feed the turtles & ducks at the lake-a must for those travelling with children, or explore the nightlife. You can also go for a stroll in the nearby marina at Villamoura and admire all the boats and yachts of all shapes and sizes, or perhaps be tempted by the lure of the Casino.
Quinta do Lago
Quinta do Lago offers everything that one could possibly desire from a holiday destination. You will be spoiled for choice in the sporting facilities, leisure pursuits and social amenities within the resort: championship golf courses, horse riding centre, tennis academy, health clubs, nature trails, water-sports and miles of golden beach, to name just a few. First class restaurants, fine shops and nightclubs add sophistication to this prestigious resort area and provide options for the diversion and relaxation of the whole family. There is a comprehensive welcome book at the villa providing guides, maps and information on everything in the area. I would particularly recommend a visit to one of the local markets (Loule on a Saturday for instance) and to see a different side of the Algarve, a drive to Silves or Monchique is recommended. For motorsport & car enthusiasts the new Autodromo de Algarve is about a 30 minute drive away or have a go at go-karting at the circuit in Almancil!
