Tailored to perfection
Quinta do Lago is a luxury resort development wrapped in 2,000 acres of lush pine woodland. A mix of top golf courses, high-spec accommodation and fine dining, this self-contained resort is a real gem in the Algarve.
A combination of traditional and modern architectural styles has helped blend the resort into the landscape of this beautiful area, with picturesque lakes and a river providing sandy beaches and acres of outdoor space to play with. There's horse riding, tennis and watersports on top of three award-winning championship golf courses, plus an indoor swimming pool.
Quinta do Lago's luxury amenities include a fantastic choice of restaurants and bars, as well as a shopping centre complete with designer stores and cute cafés.
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.
