About the property

Apartment in Lakeside Village, Quinta do Lago, Central Algarve, Portugal - Perfect Location For Holiday Makers, Golfers And Nature Lovers Alike

We've tried to preserve as much of the traditional Portuguese style as possible, and have mixed this with typical European furnishings. The apartment has just been completely redecorated and part re-furnished. It's designed to be a 'home from home', cosy and welcoming. It easily accommodates 4 people, and with the two balconies, offers a feeling of added space. It does get hot here so we have air conditioning (master bedroom and living room) to keep it cool in the summer months. Equipment includes satellite TV, WiFi connection (by the pool bar), and HIFi. The kitchen is fully equipped, and we have a washing machine and tumbler drier. The location is just minutes drive away from the beach, and the famous Ria Formosa nature reserve. It is surrounded by trails used for horse riding and walking in the woods and along the shoreline, and of course has those world class golf courses. So it's a perfect holiday choice for families, golfers and nature lovers alike.

About Beth

We are a family of golfers who first discovered The Algarve on a golfing holiday. We spend several years coming over to Portugal and just fell in love with the area and people. It's been a wonderful location for our kids to grow up and develop, and to enjoy themselves on the golf courses, beaches and in the local nightspots. We finally decided to buy a property because we wanted to spend more time out here and a have a place of our own to give us as much space, privacy and freedom to do just as we wanted. It's been a perfect decision for us.

Clean modern spacious 2 bed apt grt view

  • 4 of 5

We are a family with 2 young boys, looking for an apartment at Lakeside village, as we know the area and the development. We were delighted with the apartment, it was clean, well turned out and very spacious - All we wanted. In addition what we had not taken into consideration was the location within Lakeside. This is arguably one of the best located apartments, it looks right over the pool and the lake beyond.

This first floor apartment is spread over 2 floors. On the first floor there is a spacious kitchen and living area a twin en suite bedroom and an additional separate WC. There is also a lovely balcony/dining deck which is sheltered from view from the outside by a mature bougainvillea. Up stairs is a very large en suite master bedroom with a vast amount of storage and an additional sun deck with amazing views.

Generically the apartment is very well presented, clean and modern and I would recommend it to anyone. The only reason we have given 4 rather than 5 stars is because the bathrooms have not been upgraded recently (like many other apartments in Lakeside), but that is not to say there is anything wrong with them at all, they are clean and practical. There is TV & DVD player, but no English TV. We were not looking for UK TV per say, but without in apartment wifi, (there is wifi by the pool) there was no access to UK news and we were staying during the Olympics so would have been nice to have.

Finally I would say that the interaction with the owners has been fantastic, they have made themselves very available and willing to answer any questions as well as being multi lingual.

In summary, Lakeside is a fantastic location and this is one of the best located apartments in the development, it is clean, modern and very well turned out and it is owned by people who are very willing to help. I would highly recommend this apartment and would definitely rent again.

Nearest Airport : Faro at 17 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 20 Metres Nearest Train : Loule at 7 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : at 50 Metres Car: recommended


The closest airport is Faro which is just 25 minutes drive from the apartment. It's a very popular holiday destination, so many of the major airlines maintain a regular service to Faro. If you're driving, the main motorway is the A22 which has an exit junction leading into Almancil (6 Kilometres away). The motorway runs from Seville in Spain into Portugal and is a excellent link. The closest train station is in Almancil, and the nearest ferry sails from Faro.
