Things to do

Praia da Quinta do Lago:

This beach is the Golden Triangle's most visited and is comprised of soft, golden sand and clean waters. It runs from Ria Formosa to Vale do Lobo. A wooden walkway guides bathers along the length of the beach. There are beach bars and restaurants scattered along the walkway, some with terrific views.

Golf:

A stay in Vale do Lobo is perfect for golf enthusiasts. Vale do Lobo boasts several championship courses and is also near Vila Sol, Old Course, Laguna, Pinhal and Millennium courses to name a few. Up-to-date opening times as well as the ability to make reservations can be found online.

Sao Lourenco Church:

This church is found in the village of the same name near the outskirts of Almancil. Surprisingly, it survived the devastating 1755 earthquake intact, making it a truly unique site. The church's interior walls and ceilings are decorated in traditional blue and white tiles.

Quinta do Lago:

Quinta do Lago is one of the three towns that make up the Golden Triangle. It is an exclusive resort location with numerous five-star hotels, fine restaurants and nightclubs. The Buganvilia shopping plaza is popular, as is the Quinta shopping strip, lined with designer boutiques and jewellery stores.

This chic town is located about 11 miles up the western coast from Vale do Lobo. The marina is a busy place with countless yachts berthed there as well as boutique shops, fancy restaurants and exclusive bars lining the streets.

The décor is pale and neutral giving an atmosphere of tranquillity. The cleaners do an excellent job – the place was immaculate when we arrived. The pool terrace is large and there is a choice of sun or shade all day – whichever is your preference. The terrace is not overlooked and the views up the hillside are lovely. We were the only ones in the block of three apartments – it was so peaceful and quiet (and this was in August!). The beds are very comfortable with excellent quality linen. Pool towels were also provided thus saving luggage space. The aircon is very efficient although we only used it on the first night. We realised that the apartment would keep cool without any intervention. It was handy having fly screens on the doors and windows to facilitate airflow with no bugs flying in. Parking is very handy just outside the front door. All in all a lovely spot for relaxing.

The location right next to the Praca was perfect, no need to drive anywhere with all the restaurants on our doorstep. The apartment was clean and comfortable with plenty of room for 6.
