There are a number of other restaurants within the Quinta do Lago domaine and an abundant choice alongside the roads leading to and in the vacinity of the nearby town of Almancil which also offers a wide variety of shops and supermarkets.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Around the villa we saw green woodpeckers, red-legged partridges, tree creepers and jay - all while looking out of the window.

JULY 2009 REVIEW

  • 5 of 5
This was our 4th time to the Vilar do Golf complex and the 1st time to use this villa. It was the best maintained villa that we have stayed in, a true home from home. We had a wonderful time there and are hoping to return again next year hopefully for a longer stay. Many thanks to the owners for allowing us the use of their lovely villa.

QUINTA DO LAGO: is an exclusive residential and recreational estate close to the Atlantic Ocean and bordering part of the Ria Formosa National Parque. It is only 12 miles west of Faro and it takes about 20 minutes to drive from the airport. The quality of Quinta do Lago has been recognised by a number of awards including the Excellence Award 1994 from the Algarve Regional Tourism Board, the Golf Medal for the Defence of the Environment 1995 from Loule Municipal Authority and the Tourism Golf Medal of Merit 1996 from the Secretary of State for Commerce and Tourism. Vilar do Golf, where the villa is located, is a residential and holiday resort within Quinta do Lago. In 2012, it was awarded the TripAdvisor Cerfificate of Excellence.

Local activities include:

BEACH: The beautiful long sandy beach beyond the Ria Formosa lagoon stretches for about 3 kms and is popular in summer with bathers and sunseekers and in winter with walkers and joggers. During the peak summer months there is a lifeguard on duty during the day. The beach bar rents parasols, sunbeds and sports equipment.

BIRD-WATCHING & NATURE WALKS: The Ria Formosa Natural Parque which borders the Quinta do Lago domaine has an abundance of wildlife and is home to many rare species of nesting and migrating birds. Favourites include the purple swamp-hen, one of the most endangered species of the Ria Formosa, which is readily recognizable by its bluish feathers and bright red feet and beak. Other birds include ducks, egrets, grey plovers, kingfishers, storks, waders, the common hawthorn and some birds of prey such as the kestrel and booted eagle. Two nature trails have been created, there are a couple of bird observatories and information posts highlighting the flora and fauna of the area.

FISHING: A Fishing Centre is part of the Watersports Centre and, for a fee (which includes equipment hire), you can fish for several varieties including sole, eel and sea bream.

GOLF: Holiday-makers staying in our villa enjoy discounted golf on a number of courses in the Algarve (ask for details).

There are 4 golf courses within the Quinta do Lago estate: the Quinta do Lago South course, a par 72 championship course which has hosted the Portuguese Open several times and was included in Golf World Magazine’s ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in Europe’ in 2012; the Quinta do Lago North course (previously known as 'Ria Formosa'), noted for its many doglegs and demanding great accuracy off the tee; the San Lorenzo course, owned by the nearby Dona Filipa Hotel; and the Pinheiros Altos course comprising three 9-hole loops of contrasting character.

The newest local course, Quinta do Lago Laranjal, was voted ‘Best Golf Course’ at the Portuguese Travel Awards in 2011 and lies within 2km of the Quinta do Lago estate.

Note that the Quinta North course is closed for rebuilding during 2014.

HORSE-RIDING: There are a number of equestrian centres in the vicinity which organise treks and similar events.

VILAR DO GOLF RESORT: Organises Family Bike Tours and other local Tours. Films and books can be borrowed from the Media Library and there is even a Wii facility which can be used.

WATERSPORTS: The Watersports Centre has a range of activities including windsurfing, water skiing, dinghy sailing and scuba diving.
