Apartment in Quinta Do Lago, Central Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location, Accessible To Nearby Beaches And Good Road Links To Lisbon And Spain
About Hilary Williams
We are a non smoking couple with a grown up family. We enjoy golfing and walking and this part of the world is the perfect place for us as it has a lovely climate all year round. We also enjoy travelling to different parts of Portugal and Spain and this is an ideal location for that. The apartment suits us as we are quite happy sitting on the balcony, switching off whilst looking at the fish jumping out of the lake....quite often with a lovely glass of wine in our hand!
Hilary Williams purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Hilary Williams chose Quinta do Lago
This property ticked all the boxes for us. We deliberately furnished it to a high standard with all the modern conveniences, including air conditioning. We wanted it to be a home from home. We had looked at a few properties but as soon as we walked into this one, the views sealed it for us. We liked the idea that we weren't overlooked and much preferred a top floor as you have the best of everything. Very peaceful! Everyone immediately relaxes when they come in the door. It is also easily accessible from the airport so no long journeys when you land! You can choose to be as active or inactive as you want! We love walking along the beach and then sitting having a sundowner, watching the sunset. We also enjoy being so close to some of the best golf courses in Europe.
What makes this Apartment unique
There are many benefits to this property. It is in a great location giving the flexibility to do as much or as little as you want. It is very comfortable. If you stay in the winter months when it can get chilly at night the air con system converts to heating and is very cosy. There is plenty of space in the fitted wardrobes in each bedroom. Basically it has everything you could possibly need for a great holiday! Yes, we do love it!

Beautiful location with stunning views
Had a very relaxing week in the apartment, very comfortable with gorgeous views from the balcony. Plenty to see and do in a short radius and some excellent restaurants within walking distance. Loved the area at Quinta, the nearby beach was endless white sand and the pool area never crowded. Wouldn’t hestitate to return. Hilary was a delight to deal with over the booking, very helpful and made the process quick and easy. Hope to return!
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure. I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as we do! The views are lovely and we also like the fact that it is never overcrowded but easily accessible to some lovely places. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Great Family Holiday
We had a wonderful time in lakeside village. The apartment was really well finished and furnished with everything you could possibly need. The location on the lake was breathtaking with the beach and restaurants close by. Many thanks
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment as much as we do! We pride ourselves on providing every comfort and amenity to make it an enjoyable experience. Yes, the location is breathtaking!Thank you.
Amazing location, fabulous views and beautiful grounds which are maintained daily. We would definitely stay again.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the fabulous views and grounds. It would be lovely to have you as a guest again. Thank you.
We have just had 11 nights at this apartment (2 adults 2 kids 10&12) and it was perfect in every way. It is done out to a very high standard and very equipped for everything we needed.
Lake side village is a lovely little complex & the pool area is great, never being to busy at any time of the day.
The activities on the lake are brilliant for kids and adults along with the shack that serve great food & drinks and all just a short walk away.
I would highly recommend this apartment we had a lovely relaxing holiday.
Thank you. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and loved it as much as we do! It is lovely having these things close by and the fact that our complex is not too big and has a nice relaxing feel to it. We hope to welcome you back in the future.
Nicely presented property in a good location with easy access to a variety of activities.
Only downside was eagerness of cleaners to get into property on day of checkout, turning up half hour early.
Thank you for your feedback and delighted that you enjoyed staying in our apartment. I will make sure that I communicate this to the management company and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Lovely apartment in great location
After a slight hitch gaining access we had a great stay.
The apartment is very well equipped and modern and has great views from the balcony.
The lake and several restaurants are on your doorstep and the beach is only approx 15 mins walk.
I'm glad that the access was resolved quickly from a mix up in codes and that you had a great stay in our apartment. We also love the view! You would be welcome back any time. Thank you.
The Algarve has beautiful sandy beaches that go for miles. It takes approx. 15 to 20 minutes to walk to the beach ( approx 1 1/2km) or alternatively a 5 minute drive. There are a few beach restaurants along the coast which serve the most delicious fresh fish!
Faro airport is approx. 15 to 20 minute drive from the apartment. The drive from the airport is very straightforward and car hire is recommended.
Vilamoura 15km. Faro 15km. Tavira 30km. Quinta Do Lago shopping centre is 5 minutes drive away offering a supermarket, restaurants, bars and designer shops. The nearest town is Almancil which is about 10 minutes drive away and has a choice of supermarkets, shops and restaurants. The motorway connection is about 10 minutes away. There is a toll payable on this which can be organised by the car hire company. It gives easy access to many places of interest in both Portugal and Spain.
Quinta Do Lago is an exclusive golf and residential estate of nearly 2000 acres bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. As part of the UNESCO Ria Formosa bird sanctuary, there is a strict 8% building restriction. It is favoured by the world's elite and Ayrton Senna owned a villa in the area and when he tragically died in 1994, a road was named after him "Avenida do Ayrton Senna da Silva".
