One of the major strengths of Quinta Do Lago, or just “Quinta” as it is referred to by property owners, is the meticulous planning that has gone into building the exclusive community over its 37 year existence (first established in 1972). At no point did the master planners opt for convenience, no corners have been cut and no expense has been spared in creating the perfect place for private relaxation.
Density of construction within the community is only 8% and most of the area is covered by protected umbrella pine trees. With the The Ria Formosa nature reserve right on the doorstep, this all combines to make Quinta a haven of un-spoilt beauty and ensures it will never be affected by over development. The setting is even more enjoyable because it is never crowded - Quinta Do Lago allows all its property owners the peace and quiet they been looking for.
Another strength is its proximity to Faro airport that is only 20 minutes away and the weather that rarely goes below 15ºC or above 35ºC throughout the year.
