Quinta do Lago

Our rental villas in Quinta do Lago are the perfect setting for enjoying your family holiday in the most exclusive resort in the Algarve; in fact there are many who regard “Quinta” as the finest holiday resort of its kind in all Portugal. Its immaculately landscaped verdant acres offer five of the finest golf courses in Portugal, a sports club with a tennis academy catering from tiny tots and seniors right up to pros, padel courts, biking, a professional high-quality field for football and/or rugby training purposes together with two professional gymnasiums, 25m heated pool, spa and sports bar and restaurant, horse-riding for all abilities, and most kinds of water sports.


Located just 20 minutes from Faro airport, Quinta do Lago is more than just a point on a map. It is a lifestyle and a dream.

Founder André Jordan sat on a hillside one sunny day, by an old stone farmhouse and envisaged a place where pristine golf courses and beautiful residences overlooked the ocean, where trails explored the natural beauty of the Ria Formosa, where life could be lived in sunshine, comfort, and privacy. And so his vision became reality... by 1972 the initial phase of Quinta do Lago was up and running.

Nearly five decades later and Quinta do Lago is recognised as the benchmark in combining luxury living with the natural setting, boasts 5 superb golf courses (of which three are its own) and multiple awards as a golf destination, several outstanding restaurants, top class sports facilities and property that is not only beautiful, but also a great investment. There is a direct line from that inspired day to the present, as the very spot where André Jordan first dreamt, today is occupied by two of the resort’s fine dining restaurants, and the olive trees that dot the patio are a nod to its past as a simple farmhouse.


Quinta is superbly organised, but it is not regimented, nor by any means, all man-made, as the estate backs onto the stunning natural beauty of the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Here, you will discover an impeccable beachfront, pristine lakes and protected birdlife. Take a stroll, hire a bike, pack a picnic, and explore to your heart’s content, or simply sunbathe the day away. Come the evening, there are designer boutiques to browse and delicious restaurants to savour, and the Algarve’s finest nightclubs can also be found here; dress to impress! Or of course you could just relax with family and friends, enjoying a glass of vinho verde beside the pool at your Quinta do Lago holiday villa accommodation.
