A holiday home in Quinta da Lago: a place to relax.

Quinta da Lago is found within the area of the Algarve known as the “Golden Triangle”. This region comprises three resort towns: Quinta do Lago, Almancil, and Quarteira. A holiday rental in Quinta da Lago puts guests near the finest golf courses in the Algarve, family-friendly beaches, great nightlife spots and fine restaurants. HomeAway has many modern holiday apartments and villas in Quinta da Lago. Apartments in Quinta da Lago suited for couples or groups of up to six are available, fully equipped with modern kitchens and a terrific view. If more space is desired, a Quinta da Lago villa for larger groups can be found, some of which come with swimming pools and satellite television.

Should the prospect of accommodation in a chic marina better fit the bill, HomeAway has options in nearby Vilamoura or Albufeira Old Town and Marina. For those wanting to enjoy the luxury of the Quinta da Lago resorts whilst experiencing Algarvian charm, a HomeAway rental in Almancil is a good choice.

Things to do

Praia da Quinta do Lago:

This beach is comprised of clear waters and golden sand and runs from the Ria Formosa to nearby Vale do Lobo. A wooden walkway spans the length of the beach and a handful of restaurants provide terrific views of the Ria Formosa.

Golf:

The Golden Triangle area of the Algarve is the home of some of the finest golf courses in the region. Nearby Vale do Lobo has the Ocean and Royal courses, while Quinta do Lago has the Pinheiros Altos, San Lorenzo and Quinto North and South courses.

Faro:

The historic capital of the region, Faro, is only 12 miles from Quinta da Lago. Relics of the 13th century city walls and medieval cathedral can be viewed free of charge. There are also daily boat trips that depart from the city centre to the Ria Formosa marshes and islands.

Sao Lourenco Church:

The earthquake of 1755 destroyed almost every last structure in the Algarve, which is what makes the Sao Lourenco Church so special. This church was constructed in 1730 and completely survived the quake. Blue and white tiles characterise the interior.

Vilamoura:

Located about 12 miles from Quinta da Lago, the chic coastal town of Vilamoura is home to an impressive marina. Hundreds of yachts dock here, and designer boutiques and fine restaurants line the promenade. The archaeological site of Museu Cerra da Vila is home to original Roman structures including a bath and several mosaics.

Loule:

12 miles away lies Loule. Remnants of the original 13th century castle are certainly interesting, though it is the daily market that draws the most visitors. Fresh produce, spices and fish draw in tourists and locals. Every Saturday a gypsy market is set up downtown where locals sell their wares.

Weather in Quinta da Lago

Quinta da Lago is known for its ideal weather conditions. Summer is the most popular season; days are characterised by constant sunshine and barely a drop of rain, with temperatures of 28-30°C in July and August. Equally agreeable are September and October with average temperatures of 25°C, warm ocean water and minimal rainfall. The winters here are also nice; average temperatures are 15-16°C. December tends to be the wettest month.

Travel to Quinta da Lago

Faro Airport (FAO) is located about 13 miles from Quinta da Lago, making it the easiest point of entry from almost any major European city. From there, a taxi or hired car can get visitors to Quinta da Lago in under a half an hour. There is no train or bus station in Quinta da Lago, so should public transport be required, it will be necessary to transfer to Faro and take a taxi from Almacil.

No 58 Encosta Do Lago. Excellent property.

5 of 5
Hi. We are just back from 2 weeks in Encosta do Lago. We stayed in no 58 which is a top class 2 bed apartment with an enclosed garden. We have 3 small kids with us and the property worked very well for us, we used the back garden a lot for bbq's etc and the pool complex was 100 meters away which was important for us. The apt itself is very well equipped with everything you could need provided, including satellite tv and sky sports, dvd player etc. Encosta itself is a very well laid out resort and has a lovely calm and quiet feel about it. We visited friends in other resorts in the Quinta area and they felt crowded and busy. We walked to the Shack restaurant most morning for coffee and often went for a walk to the beach afterwards. I have visited Quinta many times and know it to be top class, Encosta was new to me and apt 58 also. I could not recommend them highly enough. Travelled with 3 kids under 5 years old /June 2017.

Just an overall Outstanding Experience!

5 of 5
Can I give 12/10??? I have stayed and worked in some pretty amazing villas worldwide - but Villa Dragao Verde easily makes the Top 3!!! We organised a golf & fitness week in Quinta Do Lago - everything was just SOOOOO close - the Active Q gym with fitness, yoga and Pilates - 1 minute drive. The Paul Mcginley - Taylor made golf academy - 2 minute drive. Quinta shopping with all the beautiful restaurants and shops just a 4 minute drive! And the stunning beaches! And just 20 minutes from Faro airport! The villa was superbly appointed and in great 5* condition. The kitchen was great - I'm a chef - and there was also a fantastic outdoor BBQ area as well. The pool was amazing - we got to do laps every morning - and there is a great big grassy area for stretching/yoga/Pilates if so inclined. The rooms were sensational - big comfortable beds, amazing bathrooms and with a real sense of space! It also has indoor and outdoor dining areas - we utilised both and they were fantastic. The games room downstairs kept us occupied with a snooker night, and there was the PRIVATE CINEMA! This was amazing as we could all watch - and laugh/cringe - at our golf swings - as well as watch some movies. The housekeeping staff were excellent - and the welcome pack was an added bonus that we just didn't expect! It's also in a VERY quiet street at the end of a cul de sac - so you certainly have quite a bit of privacy! All in all - 12/10! Looking forward to coming back several times in 2017! Lauretta - you have certainly created a little slice of paradise! Congratulations.
