Tailored to perfection
An exclusive resort perfect for a spa or golf break in the Algarve, Quinta do Lago holidays allow you to be as active or relaxed as you like. The many activities on offer make this ideal for couples and families wanting to keep active, while the soft sands of the beach provide plenty of opportunities to relax. Faro Airport is just a short drive away, making this ideal for families with impatient little ones.
Choose from one of Quinta do Lago’s professional standard golf courses and soak up the sun as you take in the views and work on your game. Five star spas are dotted along the coastline and offer the perfect way to relax, with a range of treatment dating back to traditional methods. Families will love the tennis, water sports and horse riding, with beautiful countryside and glittering seas just waiting to be explored.
Flights from the UK to the Algarve take around 2 hours 40 minutes.
Transfer time from Faro airport to Quinta do Lago is approximately 30 minutes.
Summers in the Algarve get pretty scorching, so beach-goers can expect the mercury to top 30°C in July and August. The shoulder months of April, May and October stay at a pleasantly toasty low 20s, and even in winter, things rarely drop below 15°C – ideal for year-round golfers.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Portugal.
A service charge won’t typically be added to your restaurant bill in the Algarve, so it’s common to leave a tip of around 10% of the bill. The same goes for taxi drivers – aim for 10% or round up your fare to the nearest euro. Tipping is not expected for bar staff, hotel porters or maids, although a euro or two would be appreciated for excellent service.
The official language of Portugal is Portuguese. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
