Why Frank Lavery chose Quinta do Lago
We have always considered Quinta Do Lago to be one of the finest locations in Europe . It is an exclusive resort and thus far away from the maddening crowds .It takes us twenty minutes to get from Faro Airport to our apartment .We did not want a property that required a lot of maintenance so we purchased this self contained apartment . We had it gutted and then refurbished to a high quality apartment with all modern facilities as shown by photographs . We are keen golfers and there are three courses in Quinta . We also love swimming . Lakeside has two magnificent pools and the sea is within 15 minutes walking distance .We also ride our bikes through the beautiful Rio Formosa Our apartment is situated away from the pool are and is thus quiet . 4 resteraunts within walking distence .
What makes this Apartment unique
Lakeside Village is well maintaned with beautiful gardens . It is situated on a large salt water lagoon ( few mosquetos ) on which there are water sports of all types . The large area is exclusive to people staying in the village .The security is efficent so one always feels safe . Quinta is a huge area and it is advisable to rent a car to get around the estate , go shopping ,visit old Faro and for evening dining outside the location .Regarding eating , we often eat at home on our warm secluded balcony or go to the pool caffe run by the delightful Pedro . This way you can eat and drink well cheaply . For us , it is home from home,compact ,comfortable and relaxing .Many of the other apartments in the village are dated . Ours is probaley the most luxurious in the village .

Frank was a true gentleman, and a wonderful host. Great communication before arriving, which made the whole process relaxed and faultless.
A brilliant property, with all the mod-cons, including great air-con, during some very warm summer nights.
Lakeside Village is a great location with all the amenities nearby. and was a perfect place to relax.
Thanks Frank! Will definitely come again.

Amazing apartment and place inside Quinta do Lago
It was a great experience staying in this apartment and inside lakeside village.
The apartment is lovely and fully equipped and the view is fantastic facing the lake and the pool.
The location of the condominium is very very good and Pedro is a fantastic person and he was always available for every need. Many thanks to Pedro for making this vacations even better.
We will definitely coming back next year!
In addition even this is prime time the mood overall is very peaceful.
Thank you . Delighted you enjoyed your stay and it would be a pleasure to have you back . Frank.
A great holiday and a great apartment to stay in
No problems on arrival, the keys were available and Pedro showed us to the apartment. The apartment is spacious, clean and well decorated, just right for myself and my wife. Everything we required for the stay was available in the apartment. We have stayed at Lakeside Village on a number of occasions and we found this apartment to be exactly what we were after.
Lakeside Village is a great place to stay, pool on hand, beach just down the road and plenty of restaurants only a short drive away. We have always enjoyed Pedro’s hospitality, it is sad that he is no longer able to host the barbeque night and the karaoke on a Thursday. This has always been a sociable occasion and a great opportunity to meet other residents (one for the management I think).
Great holiday – great apartment – thanks! Ian and Sally
Stylish well appointed apartment!
The apartment is as lovely as it looks in the photos. It is well positioned overlooking the lake and benefits from the communal pool and poolside bar, run by Pedro and his family. From the point of booking the owner communicated with us providing us with lots of useful information about the area and the apartment. We were greeted on arrival and shown round and were assured that if we had any problems they would be dealt with. We had a lovely relaxing two weeks and will certainly return as the apartment was ideal in every way for the two of us. Thank you to all concerned for making our holiday so enjoyable.
Good view, very good Place and people, the apartment was better than photos. Good Place for holiday!
The property was much bigger than photos, and had a beautiful View by the lake. The Owner was very Attencious and still contact after, during, and before my stay. The cleaning of the apartment was not the best but I think if they manage to get the cleaning company to go more often the problem is solved.
I advise everyone to visit the place and stay in this apartament.
It was an incredible vacation and for the next year I will return to the same place.
Diogo , Many thanks for your excellent review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay . Please be kind enough to elaborate on what aspects of the cleaning that was not satisfactory .
