The Luxury resort development of Quinta do lago occupies about 800 acres. It is regulated by the General Plan of Urbanisation. These planning regulations maintain the agreed mix of individual plots for large villas, smaller villa plots, commercial spaces and larger plots, designed for tourist “villages”.
Since 1972, worldwide developers have appreciated the value of a well planned environment. The following companies have played a part in the Quinta do Lago success: Bovis Abroad Ltd – Lakeside Village and Sao Lourenco Apartments ( San Lorenzo), McInerney Portugal – Four Seasons Country Club and Four Seasons Fairways, Le Meridian Dona Filipa Group – The San Lorenzo Golf Course, JJW Hotels & resorts – Pinheiros Altos, The Orient Express Hotels Group – Original owners of the 5* Hotel Quinta do Lago.
Quinta do Lago is one of the most desired addresses in Europe. It is in a unique location, with wonderful golf courses, lined by mature umbrella pines, and luxury homes discretely tucked away.
The proximity to The Algarve’s top beaches, premier golf, wonderful restaurants and Faro airport are just four very good reasons to consider owning a home here.
A special location to own a home.
The luxury resort of Quinta do Lago has been carefully planned, and successfully managed, to acknowledge the responsibility that it has to offer luxury properties for sale, close to the Ria Formosa natural park.
Ria Formosa is a tidal inlet and is a UNESCO protected environment for migrating birds. It is one of the last coastal zones in Europe, to have remained unspoilt. The lagoon is separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a series of sand dunes.
Quinta do Lago have created 2 nature walks, together with a wooden bridge, allowing access over the protected salt marshes to the long sandy beaches. These sandy beaches are a wonderful location for families to relax by the sea.
Three premier golf courses:
Quinta do lago resort has three championship courses, along with a new Paul McGinley Golf Academy.
The most recently constructed of its three courses, Laranjal, was voted ‘Best Golf Course’ at the Portuguese Travel Awards (Publituris) in 2011 and the iconic South Course, eight-times host of the Portuguese Open, was included in Golf World Magazine’s ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in Europe’ in 2012.
Many golfing legends have teed off here, including Colin Montgomery, Justin Rose, Ian Poulter, Padraig Harrington, Vijay Singh and Ernie Els.
With two Tour Level Driving Ranges, the resort also attracts many top professional and amateur golfers who come here looking for first-class facilities and the finest conditions in which to improve their game.
For residents and regular visitors, Quinta do Lago has two of the most exclusive members clubs in Europe, CGCL and Laranjal. Both offer levels of personal service that are unrivalled in Southern Europe along with a truly unique golf club atmosphere.
Europe’s finest properties:
Quinta do Lago’s aim was clear right from the start. The development set out to be THE premier choice when looking for a place to own a luxury home in Southern Europe. For many, they have not only achieved this aim, but they have managed to maintain it.
Many of the spaces have already been developed over the last 40 years. It is still possible to buy a building plot for a single luxury villa. Some clients are now purchasing older villas, and replacing them with larger homes in a more contemporary style.
There is a wide choice of architectural styles and something to suit most budgets as there are various “village style” developments with apartments and town houses.
The Property Owners Association – Aproquila:
The “Aproquila” was established in 1984. The property owners formed a small group, to protect their considerable investment in this wonderful part of The Algarve.
The Association has now grown to about 200 members. Most of the main commercial concerns (Hotels, golf courses, condominiums and Villages) have joined with many individual villa owners all have one objective; to maintain and enhance the quality of the development and to collectively represent the interests of the property owners.
Some of the functions that the Association performs:
On-going liaison with Quinta do Lago S.A., Infraquinta and Vigiquinta
Regular meetings with Loulé council to voice owners’ aspirations and concerns, both within Quinta do Lago and in the immediate surroundings and to liaise with adjacent similar organisations
Provision of a support centre and help desk for members to assist in resolving any issues that may arise
Provide other services to members; for example, the Association has helped a significant number of owners to comply with recent legislation regarding borehole registration and made this a simple stress-free operation. This is a free of charge service for members
The Association is a non-profit organisation and other than the receptionist. The rest of The Association is staffed entirely by volunteers.
Quinta do Lago offers an exclusive events calendar that is put together each year for the benefit of guests and residents. With an action-packed list including picnics in the park, outdoor concerts, beach parties, golf clinics and outdoor movie nights, there is always a new experience to be enjoyed, whatever the time of year.
Quinta do Lago is easy to get to. It’s less than 3 hours by plane from a great number of European cities.
The development is a 5 star resort and is managed impeccably, with integrated services including gardening and resort management.
Some of the properties are just a few minutes from the beach and there’s a complete mix of property types from 1 bedroom apartments ( just right for that weekend bolt hole), up to stunning ocean front villas.
If golf is your thing, then you can use the three beautiful courses within the resort.
There’s a variety of bars and restaurants, to suit varied tastes. Each of them takes advantage of the spectacular scenery, superb climate and fresh Mediterranean produce that the resort has become famous for.
With a luxury resort, you would expect a high level of security. This resort offers the security in a discreet manner.
Ensuring the protection of the resort’s 800 acres is certainly no mean feat, but this is successfully achieved through round-the-clock patrols and security vigilance, with staff proficient in both first-aid and self defence, leaving visitors and residents without a worry in the world.
