Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a week at this wonderful villa. We were lucky to have great weather for this time of year but the villa was well equipped with English TV, I pod docks should we have needed them. We were a party of four all occupying our own rooms but the villa was so spacious it would easily accommodate 10 adults plus children and had everything you would need for a fabulous holiday. The pool area is particularly impressive and great for serious swimmers! There are outside areas to eat and sit comfortably if you wish to be out of the sun.

My first time at Quinta do Lago but was all very clean and upmarket, no security issues, fantastic restaurants in the locality, great golf courses and choice of tennis facilities.

Would definitely recommend and can't wait to go back with all the family.

Ladies Week Away

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year that we have returned to this beautiful villa for a relaxing, away from it all break. The villa catered for all our needs and was superbly equipped. We enjoyed long walks along the beach, which is easily accessible from the garden. Beautiful panoramic views from the upstairs bedrooms with the master bathroom an exceptional treat. Will definitely be back next year.

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly relaxing holiday in this stunning villa. The decoration of the villa makes you feel right at home, and it is fully equipped with everything you need. Having the heated pool was a fantastic addition as it meant we cold swim every day!

The location was perfect for us, Quinta do Lago is really well maintained and there are plenty of restaurants, tennis centres, and golf courses that kept us entertained. Not only that, but this villa is just a short walk from the beach, so whether lying on the beach or enjoying the sea views from the villa it is a very relaxing destination!

I would like to thank the owner for making sure we had a perfect stay! We look forward to coming back next year!

Pure Luxury

  • 5 of 5

This villa is exceptional. My husband and I have rented the villa for the last couple of years and have never been disappointed. The booking process is simple and the owner is always contactable to answer any questions that we had. The villa is kept to a very high standard and equipped with everything you need (the owner has exceptional taste). One of the great benefits is that the pool is heated which was fantastic as we had such great weather in December that we could even go for a swim. The beach is a five minute walk away along the side of the golf course and nature reserve (my husband was in his element being so close to the golf course). Quinta Do Lago is such a peaceful and well kept area, I think we have found our perfect holiday location for years to come..!!

Tranquill stay in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the villa and it was as good as the first. The villa is pure luxury - it has clearly been decorated and fitted out to the highest spec, each room having a slightly different theme/feel to it. We stayed over New year but were still able to enjoy the pool area during the day as it was warm and sunny.

The location was perfect - far enough away from any noise but just a short drive into the shops/golf courses and many spas. Plus just a 10 minute walk to the beach!

I would definitely recommend this to any families/golf parties/ groups of people who are looking for all the luxury of a 4 * hotel but the privacy and flexibility of having your own front door.

Fantastic Family Villa, Pool and Gardens

  • 5 of 5

As a family we have been renting this spacious villa for a number of years. We simply love relaxing in its luxurious and well appointed child friendly, surroundings. With plenty of space to chill out or have some private time, and a large private garden which has been beautifully landscaped with the added bonus of a large (fenced off) heated swimming pool, this continues to be our favourite holiday spot.

We particularly enjoy walking in the famous Ria Formosa Nature Reserve and Bird Sanctuary which is only a few minutes away. This also provides the opportunity for a slightly longer walk, along the edge of the golf course to the spectacular timber bridge leading to the beach bar and the superb Quinto do Lago beach.

With a maid service and an efficient and helpful management team to help should any assistance be required, this is a most relaxing and wonderful place to spend a holiday, either for a group of adults or for families with young children. And, the bonus is that it is only 30 minutes drive from Faro airport.
