Quinta do Lago
Quinta do Lago is an upmarket resort set in beautiful countryside surroundings. Particularly aimed at golfers, it boasts four 18-hole courses across its open expanse.
For those holidaymakers not so keen on golf, there are plenty of other facilities to enjoy. The resort has a luxurious feel and provides opportunities for horse-riding, clay pigeon shooting and tennis.
Beach lovers will appreciate holidays in Quinta do Lago for its beautiful swathe of golden sands. The beach is sheltered by high sandstone cliffs and is perfect for soaking up the sun on lazy days. Visitors should stroll along the cliff top paths to take in some breathtaking views. Within the development there is a private lake, which hosts an array of watersports.
The ancient town of Faro lies just 20 kilometres from the resort. Its pretty old town will delight sightseers and the macabre ‘Chapel of Bones’ will leave quite an impression. Shops in the chic Quinta do Lago reflect the exclusive nature of the resort, so bargain hunters might like to spend a day at the bustling markets of nearby Quarteira.
