The Algarve region

The south west Algarve is beautiful! It's less crowded than the rest of the Algarve and is part of a protected Costa Vincentina Nature Park. It is is well suited to keen golfers, beach-goers, surfers, hill walkers, bird watchers and lovers of the outdoor life. Horse riding and other activities are also available nearby.

Lagos is the main town in the region and is only an hour's drive away from Faro airport and 15 mins away from the villa. It has a large choice of restaurants/bars/shops and charming pedestrianised cobbled streets, displaying typical Moorish architecture. There is also a marina with big game fishing/dolphin watching/ boat hire available. Cape St. Vincent, the most s.westerly point in Europe is only 30 mins drive. Other local attractions include the Slide and Splash and Aqualand waterparks plus Lagos Zoo and Zoo Marine near Albufeira.

There are dozens of impressive, quiet and quaint sandy beaches in the area, with the West Coast surfing beaches and surf schools also only 20 mins away. The Algarve boasts a climate similar to California, with 300 days of sunshine every year. The summers are pleasantly hot and the winters are bright and mild. Just one word describes the weather year-round, EXCELLENT!


Quinta da Fortaleza (QDF) is perfectly located right above the beautiful, secluded sandy beach of Cabanas Velhas, with Boco do Rio beach also close by (both within 5-7 mins walk). Ideally placed for access to unspoilt picturesque fishing villages of Burgau and Salema with their traditional charm, great restaurants and long expanse of sandy beach. There are two good supermarkets nearby. The unique position of the villa within the Nature Park in the unspoilt Western Algarve makes it ideal for coastal walks. All the facilities of the resort of Quinta da Floresta are also available to you just 10 mins away. These include a spectacular 18 hole golf course, PGA-approved Golf Academy and driving range, as well as further swimming pools, tennis courts, football, and summer kids clubs, and a beautiful Spa and gym.
