The Quinta do Lago estate, one of the finest in Europe, occupies an area of about 30 sq kilometres, set amongst pines and beautiful landscaped gardens. Victory Village is an exclusive development, closest to the beach of all the Quinta resorts. Its apartments are set in a spacious garden with a large pool and separate pool for young children. A lifeguard is on duty during the summer season, and a bar serves snacks and lunches. Victory Village has its own tennis courts and good car parking, a management office, 24hr security and wi-fi.

The main living room, kitchen and dining area are on the upper floor and steps lead down to the master bedroom suite on the lower floor.

About the Owner
We have had an apartment in Quints do Lago for many years, but, with retirement in mind, we recently bought a house here. Our friends and family have always enjoyed their visits, whether in the school holidays or, for couples, the peaceful, romantic, times of year, when the UK is dull and gray.
Guestbook comments from the owner
2012 was our first season for holiday lets in our apartment in Quinta do Lago. We were delighted with the response and the number of guests who took the trouble to write and tell us how much they had enjoyed their stay. Here are a few of their comments:
"We have just arrived home, and I want to tell you that we had a very pleasant stay in your apartment. I hope that we can go again next year."
"We had a wonderful week and we endorsed our experience to my parents-in-law"
"We had a wonderful holiday; the apartment is so well equipped, and perfectly located for walking to the beach, to Ludo or to Vale de Lobo, as well as the beautiful estate of Quinta do Lago itself."
"It just couldn't have been better (although a little cooler might have been good!)"
"We had a wonderful time thank you. We loved your apartment. So peaceful"

Spacious & comfortable apartment @ Quinta Do Lago
Lovely accommodation situated in a stunning location with good restaurants nearby and easy access to points of interest and the beach. During our stay the weather was good which contributed to a relaxed and rewarding holiday. We hired a car from Goldcar at Faro airport and found this esential and economic for local area travel. We throughly enjoyed our stay
and look forwad to returning next year. Highly recommended to those wanting a relaxing and peacefull holiday.
Spacious appartment in Victory Village.
Set inside a gated community with golf courses surrounding this is a spacious 1 bedroom modern apartment with a double bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor and provision for an extra put u up bed on the 1 st floor with a handy shower room and toilet,also a nice balcony which catches the early morning sun, the kitchen is well equipped for self catering but there are so many good restaurants within a couple miles that eating out is usually the order of the day.There is a communal pool which is excellent and a cafe ideal for breakfast or a light lunch.The beach is only a few minutes walk across the huge Ria Formosa nature reserve which in itself offers short or long walks with ample wild life to watch, the beach itself is immense, miles and miles of golden sand.The owners are easily contacted via text or e mail, We have just returned from another very relaxing,enjoyable stay.
lovely stay in a perfect holiday location.
This was our second stay in this lovely apartment. Its light and bright with an exceptionally large bedroom and two terraces. Its always spotlessly clean and feels like a home. Fantastic location for the beautiful beach and nature reserve, literally a 5 minute walk. Its only half an hours drive away from the airport yet incredibly relaxing and peaceful. We are looking forward to our next stay already!
From the Owner
“We have known the area for long time, but we are also familiar with many, if not most, of the main European holiday destinations. In our opinion there is nothing to compare with Quinta do Lago. The Algarve weather is ideal - usually warm enough to eat outside even in the winter months, yet not oppressively hot in summer. The Portuguese people are welcoming and friendly and in terms of value-for-money this area is unbeatable. But even the Algarve has its upmarket and down-market regions. Quints do Lago is without doubt the most pleasant, peaceful and serene estate in all Portugal.”
Activity and Interests
The long sandy beach is a 5-minute walk from Victory Village and set amongst the dunes of the Ria Formosa. In Portugal there are no private beaches, but Victory Village has a concession with umbrellas and loungers to rent at discounted prices. The beach is reached across a spectacular wooden bridge, with the world famous Gigi’s fish restaurant at the far end.
Even in the high season the beach is clean and un-crowded, and has consistently been awarded the blue ribbon award for cleanliness.
The nearest airport is Faro, which is about 20 minutes away by car. For those wishing to get away from it all a hire car is not essential, although a bicycle would be useful within the Quinta Estate. But there are many local attractions, including scores of inexpensive (and very good) restaurants in the nearby villages, so a car is a sensible option for most.
The nearest town in Almancil which is about 5 km away. The cities of Loulé and Faro are both about 10 km away. From Faro, boat trips are available to the islands of the Ria Formosa. Further afield the old Algarve capital of Silves, Portimao, Lagos and Sagres are all worth a visit and are accessible within a hour. The magnificant city of Seville is only 2 hours away and Lisbon is three hours by car, 3½ hours by train.
Restaurants, Cafés and Bars. Several within the Quinta estate and very many more outside.
Victory Village has 2 courts. Jim Stewart’s tennis academy (lessons, matches etc) within walking distance.
Watersports centre (canoes, pedalos, wind-surfing etc) within walking distance. Several boating centres within 30 minutes drive.
2 Shopping centres with boutiques, restaurants, and supermarket within the Quinta estate. Post Office, Bank with ATM and a smaller supermarket/newsagent/ snack bar about 1 km from the apartment.
English speaking doctor & dentist on the Quinta estate
Readily available, including Margarida who has looked after our grandchildren on several visits.
The Ria Formosa Natural Park (300 metres away) is an idyllic area for walking and an important sanctuary for bird watching.
Bicycles are available for hire from several suppliers.
Water slide parks
Two parks operate outside the Quinta estate within a 15-30 minute drive
Outside the Quinta estate within a 10 minute drive
Various local markets operate within 15-30 minutes drive
Two clubs on the Quinta estate (but not too near!). Many more within the immediate area. Casino, with live entertainment, in Vilamoura (20 mins).

From the Owner
“Our apartment, and its location within the Quinta estate offers everything the discerning holidaymaker might need. For the sporting enthusiast everything is on hand. There are now four championship golf courses within 5 minutes drive. There are tennis courts locally and a tennis academy within walking distance on the estate. There are watersports both on the lake in the estate and at the nearby marinas. And the beach is a beautiful uncrowded stretch of sand, with walking distance of the apartment but far enough from the town to be virtually a private facility. There seem to be more restaurants, of all tastes and to suit all pockets, than in most major cities.”
