“With three of the best golf courses in Europe, Quinta do Lago is an obvious choice for me. But what I love the most is not having to worry about the family - with the beach, the lake, restaurants, tennis, water sports and even shopping, there is always plenty for them to do and there is an incredible events and activities calendar. And the best thing is always knowing the children are safe.” (Paul McGinley)
Set in nearly 1,594 acres of pine forest and lakes on the Southern tip of Portugal, Quinta do Lago is bordered by mile upon mile of beautiful sandy beaches and the rugged beauty of the Ria Formosa National Park.
It offers guests and residents the optimum blend of first-class facilities, an elite lifestyle and total seclusion at the heart of some of the most prestigious golf courses in Europe.
Exclusive villas and landscaped gardens are scattered amongst carpets of wild flowers, indigo blue lakes and glistening white bunkers, while the distinctive canopy of umbrella pines provides welcome shade from the Algarvian sun.
Throughout the year, residents and guests can enjoy a wealth of activities including horse-riding, hiking along nature trails, mountain biking, al fresco Pilates, family tennis lessons, traditional Portuguese picnics, shopping in the designer boutiques and pampering in one of the resort’s luxury spas.
The resort features a number of excellent restaurants, which are as famous for their cuisine as they are for their breathtaking views. Enjoy freshly-caught seafood while looking out over the lush green landscape of Quinta do Lago’s famous golf courses to the beautiful Ria Formosa National Park in the distance.

There is also a calendar of exclusive events for guests and residents. From beach parties and balloon rides to the famous lake regatta and exclusive golf tournaments, there is always a new experience to be enjoyed, whatever the time of year.
