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:

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.

The owners were extremely helpful before we went, providing us with lots of information. This is a lovely area and I would highly recomend that visitors hire a car to make the most of their stay. We ate out at some great restaurants and the beaches nearby are beautiful. The villa was clean and spacious. Thank you for a great stay!

Miguel popped in to say hello on the Saturday and make sure we were happy with everything which was a nice touch. Definitely be back.
