The Neighborhood

The Quinto do Lago Resort is renowned as an excellent, luxury golfer’s paradise. The splendid golf courses are set amongst fragrant pine trees. Quinta Shopping and Bougainvillea Plaza is very close to the villa and has gourmet restaurants, bars, cafes, boutiques and a supermarket. The beautiful 18-hole, Par 72 San Lorenzo Golf Course is very close by, as are the famous golf courses closer to the glamorous Vilamoura. The Old Course at Vilamoura is set in an attractive umbrella pinewood and is the second oldest golf course in the Algarve. The Portugal Masters takes place every year at the Victoria Golf Course. You never know, you might find a serious tournament is taking place when you visit!   The Vilamoura Marina is a wonderful place for dinner or even simply to people-watch while enjoying a few cocktails. It is one of the largest marinas in Portugal with 1300 berths. Many visitors arrive by boat just for entertainment. The glitzy Vilamoura Casino will entice you and boasts lively evening entertainment on top of the gambling. Vilamoura is also brilliant for shopping with the most prestigious international brands present as well as a wide range of local craft boutiques. There are countless activities to do during the day around Vilamoura, including tennis, horse riding, sailing, windsurfing, jet-skiing, parasailing, boat trips, fishing, and so on. It is the perfect place if you fancy some exciting big game fishing and deep-sea diving as well as dolphin and whale spotting. What amazing holiday memories! For a cultural touch, the area’s past is brought to the forefront with a preserved Roman site and the Museum of Cerro da Vila.   The beaches all along this coast are wonderful. Why not explore Quarteira and Vilamoura without having to exert a lot of energy with a Segway tour along the promenades? After a short lesson in Segway navigation, you will travel along the coastline before continuing into the towns to visit the local markets.   Algarve Xcite and other companies run sunset cruises and day boat trips to visit the fascinating Benagil sea caves. The Algar de Benagil is the most famous of the sea caves in the Algarve. Alternatively, you could take a jeep safari to explore this natural haven of beautiful landscapes, regional architecture and gastronomic delights. You can visit hidden gems and historic villages and swim under a beautiful waterfall, escaping the tourist hotspots.   The Ria Formosa is a stunning natural park with lagoons, barrier islands and wetlands. It is wonderful for anyone that loves the outdoors. Woodchats, terns, red-crested pochards, ferruginous ducks and purple herons can all be seen. Traditional boats that were formally used for tuna fishing take you around the lagoons. The islands of Faro, Barretta, Culatra, Armona and Ilha Tavira are lovely to visit by ferry or boat. You shouldn’t miss a visit to Tavira town either as it is so charming with wonderful cafes and restaurants.
