Quinta do Lago
The Resort

Is an exclusive residential and recreational estate situated in 645 hectares of verdant countryside and pine forests bordering the Atlantic Ocean and part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Since its creation in 1972, the development concept of Quinta do Lago has been one of low density. Even though when fully developed, the constructed area will occupy only eight percent of the whole estate.
This is guaranteed by regional planning control and ensures maximum privacy for property owners and protection of the environment of Quinta do Lago.Quinta do Lago The facilities within the estate offer a wide variety of activities including golf, tennis, horseriding and non-polluting watersports. There are many fine restaurants and night-spots. The different residential sections, whether individual villas with large private gardens or low-rise apartment clusters, are always constructed using one of the special features of the estate, such as: golf courses, woodland or lakes, as a focal point. Quinta do Lago is a symbol of quality and one of the few places in the world where you can purchase or rent a luxury villa and enjoy a sophisticated lifestyle in the tranquil surroundings of a nature reserve and located only 15 minutes from Faro Airport .Special attention is paid to the environment at Quinta do Lago because 18.4 hectares of the Ria Formosa Natural Park falls within its boundaries. This tidal inlet is the UNESCO protected home of migratory birds and a "wetland" of world importance. It is one of the last unspoiled coastal zones in Europe. Quinta do Lago has created two nature trails which have been designed to enhance awareness of the environment value of the area.
