1. Located in the #1 safest country in the EU
Quinta do Lago is located on the beautiful coast of southern Portugal. In 2020, the 14th edition of the Global Peace Index named Portugal as the #1 safest country in the European Union and #3 in the world. In terms of peacefulness, the GPI measures across three domains: Safety and Security, Ongoing Conflicts and Militarisation. This was the fourth consecutive year Portugal was placed in the top 3 most peaceful countries in the world.

2. Protected by an advanced, intelligent security service
The most technically advanced monitoring centre in Portugal, and one of the best in Europe, Team 6 Vigiquinta are Quinta do Lago’s professional security arm. Combining electronic equipment and human vigilance, they operate 365 days per year to protect residents, guests and staff in the resort. In addition, Team 6's Technical experts provide residents with advanced home security and automation services and a watertight, preventative approach that guarantees your complete peace of mind.

3. Committed to a unique vision
Formed over 48 years ago, the original vision for Quinta do Lago can still be strongly felt throughout the resort. Low-impact and leisure-orientated, residential developments are designed to produce an environment that complements and celebrates the surrounding natural beauty. The masterplan has detailed planning and infrastructure regulation and caps residential development at 9% of the 2,000-acre area. Properties are ingeniously distributed between 21 zones – each with its own identity – which have been gradually released throughout the resort’s history. 

4. Inspiring a healthy family lifestyle
An active, outdoor lifestyle is widely enjoyed by those who live and stay in Quinta do Lago, as the environment and atmosphere encourage you to make the most out of each and every day. With more than 300 days of sunshine per year, its 12 unique restaurants, 3 award-winning golf courses, The Campus high-performance sports and fitness hub and 3 km golden sand beach, allow for truly memorable, healthy and fulfilling days. What’s more, a year-round calendar of events to enjoy with family and friends create the perfect community environment.

5. Surrounded by a protected nature reserve
The perfect setting for serene, wholesome living, Quinta do Lago sits at the heart of Ria Formosa Natural Park – 2,000 acres of majestic pine-groves, gently undulating dunes and lagoons of exceptional beauty. The protected Natural Park is home to abundant fauna, flora and wildlife. Around 30,000 birds migrate to this beautiful shoreline, including flamingos, kingfishers and blue magpies. Quinta do Lago is not only home to beautiful architecture and peaceful living, but is also a sanctuary for natural wonders.

6. Certified clean & safe
For nearly 50 years, Quinta do Lago has upheld a commitment to quality of life and in this last year has redoubled its effort to ensure families have the chance to share quality time and enjoy a relaxed lifestyle in a safe and clean environment. The resort is proud to have received the Clean & Safe stamp of approval from Turismo de Portugal and the Safe Travels certification from the World Travel & Tourism Council. Combining the beauty of living close to nature with the very best of modern living – from security, to health and hygiene, community and gastronomy - Quinta do Lago was named the Most Exclusive Residential Resort in the Algarve by Lux Life Magazine in 2020. With pure ocean air, warm southern climate, healthy Mediterranean food and low-density population, Quinta do Lago is the best destination in Europe for safe and serene living.
