The quintessential hacienda-style Quinta Palmera is a stunning five-bedroom villa nestled in lush, verdant grounds of the exclusive Quinta do Lago community in the Algarve.

Bursting with classic traditional features, from the whitewashed walls, exposed beams, sprays of exposed brickwork, and trellis-topped alfresco dining area adorned with flowers, Quinta Palmera is the perfect holiday home for those who want to make memories to treasure forever in this popular holiday destination.

The energy of this luxury accommodation flows seamlessly from the inside out, from the neutral interior decor, stone walls and tiled floors to the perfectly manicured lawns and private pool. The property features stylish, modern furnishings and home comforts, including a library, TV room and dining area with a bar. The spacious, farmhouse-style kitchen, in keeping with the villa’s aesthetic, offers the perfect space for rustling up rustic feasts with the whole family before enjoying them in the covered alfresco dining area (complete with fireplace for when the sun sets) while taking in the gorgeous views.

The grounds feature lush green lawns, with trees offering cooling shade, a pool, patio, and a central courtyard painted a vibrant red and dominated by a mature tree, offering the perfect place for quiet contemplation. There are plenty of outdoor seating areas, including cosy sofa-style spaces around the fireplace and bistro chairs and tables on the patio - perfect for enjoying that first-morning cuppa as you take in the beauty of Quinta do Lago.

Each of the five bedrooms is spacious and bright, all featuring king-size beds and each benefitting from its own modern, private bathroom. The decor is light and fresh, and the exposed ceiling beams, large, timber-framed windows, and french doors tie in beautifully with the traditional style of the villa.

Quinta Palmera is the ideal choice for family or friendship groups who want to enjoy everything that Quinta do Lago has to offer in an unadulterated, luxury setting.

What you should know…

  • There is both an indoor and outdoor open stone fireplace; parents will want to be cautious when small children are playing in the vicinity whether they are in use or not
  • The private pool has steps down into the water rather than a ladder. It’s also at ground level; again parents will want to exercise caution with small children
  • Quinta Palmera has air-conditioning throughout

Quinta Palmera flanks the fairway for the first hole of the San Lorenzo golf course, one of the most beautiful and celebrated in the region. Quinta do Lago is a go-to destination for golfers, thanks to world-class courses such as the famous North, South and Laranjal courses and premier sports facilities, including mini-golf, the famous Paul McGinley Academy, and the TaylorMade Performance Centre, drawing visitors from all over the world. This includes the rich and famous, with stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Niall Horan and even Madonna all having been spotted here.

This incredibly beautiful gated community comprises one of the three corners of the Golden Triangle of the Algarve’s most affluent communities and promises a naturally private setting, making it a favourite destination for celebs and holidaymakers alike. Quinta do Lago is elite and exclusive, yet unpretentious, and is something of a millionaire’s playground, where people come to enjoy the laid-back vibe and stunning scenery as much as the golf. The area is also synonymous with fine dining, with restaurants and beachside bistros aplenty, all serving a variety of local and worldly cuisine.

For those who don’t want to spend time celeb-spotting or practising their swing, there’s still plenty to entertain, from the spectacular golden beaches of the region to the beautiful protected nature trails. Boat trips are incredibly popular with families who visit the region, allowing you to discover unspoilt lagoons, sandbanks and the surrounding islands of this unique area. There is a wooden bridge running from the resort of Quinta do Lagos to the beach, a long golden expanse stretching as far as the eye can see and showcasing amazing views of the ocean and oceanside boardwalk.

There are always family-friendly events held throughout the year in Quinta do Lagos, with special programmes planned for Easter, Christmas and the New Year, as well as the summer months. The local beachside eatery, The Shack, features live music and beach barbeques during the peak season, and these family-friendly gatherings are legendary in the area. Another family favourite is the Picnic in the Park events, as well as Sunday brunches and the beach parties held at KoKo beach.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

For families holidaying with children, Quinta Palmera is a lovely choice, with its beautiful lawn area providing plenty of shade, a private pool, and spacious rooms. It’s important to note that all of the bedrooms feature king-size beds, so it might be an idea to bring a travel cot for the youngest children if you don’t plan to co-sleep.

Quinta do Lagos is a beautiful resort that offers plenty to do. Sporty children will be in their element with a variety of activities on offer for them to enjoy, including surfing and kite-surfing for the older ones. The area is fairly pushchair-friendly, so taking a family stroll through the resort should be nice and stress-free, and the kids are sure to enjoy attractions such as pop-up galleries showcasing modern art. Of course, the beach is always a big hit with the youngest members of the family, and they will be truly spoiled here. The beaches are expansive, clean and beautiful - as you would expect from the Algarve - and many a happy hour can be spent here building sandcastles and paddling in the cool, blue ocean.

If you choose to travel a little further afield, you won’t find many places in the Algarve that don’t offer something exciting in the way of entertainment. The region is bursting with waterparks, zoos and theme parks that are sure to delight visitors of all ages. For something a little closer and more gentle, the beautiful Ria Formosa Natural Park is right on your doorstep. This area of outstanding natural beauty is the perfect spot for hiking, walking and nature spotting. The stunning maze of canals, islands and marshes stretches along the Algarve coast and boasts a variety of flora and fauna, including a chameleon, a reptile that only exists in the south of Portugal, as well as one of the largest populations of seahorses in the world.

Eating in Quinta do Lagos with the kids couldn’t be easier, with many of the restaurants offering entertainment for the children (as well as cocktails for the adults!) and serving up a wide range of dishes, from barbecued meats and burgers, vegetarian and vegan dishes, and fresh seafood.
