Why James Lee chose Quinta do Lago

I first came to Portugal with my parents in 1976. They have returned to the Algarve every year since but I only re-discovered the delights of this region on a return visit in 2009. My wife and I loved it so much we bought this property in 2011 and visit several times a year to relax and get some sun.

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.

Beautiful apartment in a quiet area

  • 4 of 5

Really beautiful apartment with well stocked kitchen and large bedrooms and a patio and private garden.

Walking distance to the shack and a few other restaurants but you will need taxi for the other towns.

Perfect if you want to play golf as there are about 15 courses in local area.

The only badside to the apartment is the mosquito issue...the size of pterodactyl, you will need jungle formula to ward them off- the downside to all those golf course lakes.

Lovely apartment in fab location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 5 days in November 2016. The facilities are 1st class with everything you'd expect from the Quinta location. We loved having breakfast on the terrace in the morning and the pool is just a minute away with access to bar and restaurant. We will return to this paradise.
