October 15th, 2015 in Algarve, Our Favourites

Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lobo are two of the Algarve’s best-facilitated and most popular resorts. Vale do Lobo, for instance, is a favourite among seekers of luxury European resorts, being the biggest luxury resort of its type in Portugal and home to various luxury villa rentals.


Vale do Lobo has existed as a resort since the 1960s and was founded during a period when the Algarve was more associated with farmers and fishermen than tourists. It is the largest solely-owned resort in Europe and has been improved and modernised continually during the last 50 years, without losing any of its charm. Vale do Lobo is now regarded as one of the best high-end family destinations in Europe, favoured by various celebrities and professional sports players alongside successful business folk.


Like Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago is synonymous with luxury villas, golf and tennis courts, fine dining and watersports activities. It is home to three of Europe’s finest golf courses and provides attractions and facilities for all of the family to enjoy. Exciting high-profile events take place all year long, and the resort is also renowned for its child safety standards.


Quinta do Lago is situated within the Ria Formosa National Park, close to various lakes, forests and beaches. What’s more is that it can provide a diverse range of culinary experiences, offering various acclaimed gourmet restaurants where visitors can enjoy all manner of local Mediterranean-style produce.
