From the Owner
“We have been to many holiday destinations but settled in the Algarvian Golden Triangle. Its warm pleasant climate and closeness to the sea is a great attraction. The local people are very nice and the restaurants are good value. None of us are golfers but I am told that it is a golfer's paradise. Numerous other activities including water sports, horse riding etc. Varandas do Lago is a new estate with mostly large villas all well finished. The beach is a 20 minute walk. Vilamoura and Albufeira can be reached in 20 minutes by car. The market in Quarteira is a favourite haunt for the ladies. Quinta do Lagos and Vale do Lobo are close by and the town of Almancil and Loule are also within easy driving distance. There is also good shopping at Faro which is a 20 minute drive.”
