About the property

Immaculately maintained & managed 5 star luxury villa. Fully air-conditioned

Our own licence number is 26106/AL

This large (5000 sq ft) fully air conditioned luxury villa, located near the sea in the prestigious Parque Atlantico area of Quinta do Lago, is one of its finest properties to become available for holiday rental in years. The ground floor includes a library equipped with cable TV and home cinema, an elegant dining room and a large, beautifully furnished, lounge with access to an outside lounge and dining terrace and heated swimming pool (12 x 6 mts) plus barbecue. The superb kitchen, with an island unit and breakfast area, is equipped with a range cooker, dishwasher and microwave. There is also a laundry room in the basement with a washing machine and tumble dryer. All of the four bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor, have cable TV plus their own en-suite bathroom with both bath and separate shower.The master bedroom boasts a double four-poster bed. A spiral staircase from the first floor terrace leads to a roof terrace, which has 360-degree views of the sea and mountains.

Location of the Villa: The villa is located in the Parque Atlantico area of Quinta do Lago, widely regarded as the most prestigious sector of this luxury resort as it is closest to the sea and has some of the finest properties. It is situated in a large landscaped garden accessed through electric entrance gates. The Ria Formosa estuary and nature reserve is only 250 mts away and you can walk from there along the nature trail to the famous bridge over the estuary which leads to the miles of unspoiled sandy beach. The San Lorenzo golf course and club house is close by and there are numerous nature walks and cycle trails for you to enjoy. The main windsurfing lake with the watersports centre plus the popular Casa do Lago bar and restaurant is also within walking distance.

Eating Out: There are a number of fine restaurants within the Quinta do Lago estate and many more in the immediate vicinity offering every choice of cuisine from local Portuguese, to French, Italian, Fusion, Indian and Seafood. The lakeside restaurants Casa do Lago and the Shack, the Casa Velha Restaurant and Bovinos and those of the 5 star Quinta do Lago hotel are all within walking distance of the villa but there are literally hundreds within a short driving distance. You will find a full list of restaurants, for all occasions, specially recommended by the owners in the villa.

The Garden: Electric entrance gates lead to the grounds of the villa. The large, professionally landscaped, gardens have been designed in formal Tuscan style to compliment the classical design of the villa with extensive use of calcada stone paths, cypress trees, box hedging and clipped bushes. At the side of the villa is the elegant orange grove garden and behind the pool terrace is a large lawned garden bordered by colourful trees, shrubs and sub tropical plants.

An exceptional, luxurious and opulent property

  • 5 of 5

We are regular visitors to Quinta do Lago but this was our first visit to Villa Vermonte and it will not be our last! Villa Vermonte is an exceptional, luxurious and opulent property, perfect for a family holiday. The accommodation is very well thought out and provides excellent accommodation for our family of five. The Villa is evidently very well maintained and cared for. We spent most of our days around the pool which is very comfortably furnished and enjoyed some relaxed lunches making the most of a very well equipped outside dining and barbeque area. The Villa is close to the stunning beach at Ria Formosa and the golf driving ranges and courses offered by Quinta. In the evenings we visited some delightful restaurants all recommended by the owner. It is evident that the owners of this property know the resort very well and this they share with visitors in the guide provided. We will certainly be returning to Villa Vermonte.

The description as advertised was accurate including the wonderful location and general layout of the property.

Everywhere was clean and well maintained as you would expect in a five star villa.

The service was good with sufficient information available with where to go and what to do and we would certainly recommend this villa to our friends.

A beautiful property in a tranquil location.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Vermonte is a most impressive property in all aspects. The initial impact of the large atrium when stepping through the front door does not fade quickly, as you soon realise that the grandeur evident from the threshold is actually a true representation of the entire property. The owners have designed, equipped and furnished both the inside and outside spaces to deliver all the essential elements of a perfectly relaxing holiday. While we were only staying in a relatively small group, the villa has significant space and would be perfect for a larger group as well, with ample thoughtfully designed poolside areas for relaxation, dining, or simply reading quietly in the beautifully maintained and spacious gardens. Inside, the living spaces are equally generous in giving opportunity for solace. But should the event demand, the very large dining room would be perfect for even the most special dinner party or celebration. The formal drawing room matches the overall standard, as does the library/snug. The well equipped Kitchen is spacious and perfectly links with the poolside breakfast area through French doors, with an adjacent formal alfresco dining area also perfectly convenient to the kitchen and the barbecue cooking area.

The pool is large, beautifully maintained and was heated to a very pleasant temperature throughout our (wintertime) stay.

The bedrooms are large, the beds very comfortable and the bathrooms of a standard matching the very best of international hotels.

The resort is as impressive as the villa. The beach is close by and can be accessed with a comfortable walk or cycle ride. It is probably one of the worlds most perfect beaches and thankfully protected from development by being located in one of Portugal's most important national parks. Golf courses meander between perfectly manicured properties and highlight why so many of the worlds elite choose to relax in Quinta do Lago. Would we stay here again? Definitely...

A beautiful villa.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Vermonte was a truly lovely villa, beautifully furnished and decorated it felt very welcoming and comfortable.

It was exceptionally well equipped with absolutely everything we needed during our stay. The attention to detail shown by the owner is very clear to see.

The location was very good, on a quiet road but close to the beach and golf courses and a short drive to the shops and restaurants.

A perfect holiday in the Villa Vermonte

  • 5 of 5

We have just had the perfect holiday with friends at the Villa Vermonte. The description provided was completely accurate. The photographs do not do justice to the accommodation which was superb. In fact it exceeded our expectations. The house is in brilliantly pristine condition, clean and well maintained - everything worked ! The owner obviously has had years in the travel business which really shows in the attention to detail. (The basement provides ample storage for luggage, hotel type storage for extra clean towels and toileltries, and laundry facilities.) The small details that make the difference. This is luxury accomodation for a group of friends or family. We are definitely booking our summer holiday here.

Family holiday in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

we had an excellent family holiday in what must be one of the best Villa's in the area. The villa is of an extremely high standard and what a swimming pool, we had great difficulty in keeping the children out of it. The gardens are lovely and the outside eating areas are really good and it was a pleasure to BBQ and enjoy the food in the sunshine. We made good use of the local restaurants of which there are many and the local shopping facilities are also very good and varied. Altogether a first class holiday and we will return to play the golf courses which we could not do on this visit.

Quinta do Lago situated in the finest, most unspoiled, area in the whole of the Algarve, is widely regarded one of Europe’s premier destinations. It is a unique collection of luxury resorts and private villas all within 1800 acres of the Quinta do Lago estate - its spectacular rolling countryside interspersed with pine forest, lush green fairways, fresh and salt water lakes. Miles of non-crowded sandy beach are reached by foot bridge across the adjoining Ria Formosa, a tidal estuary, designated a nature reserve, which is the protected home of many rare migrating birds. Quinta do Lago is famous for its 5 championship golf courses, but there is lots more beside. The large lake offers windsurfing, sailing and fishing and at the beach there is waterskiing, jet ski and paragliding. There are two nature trails along the Ria Formosa nature reserve with a hide for birdwatchers. The Tennis Centre has floodlit courts and professional tuition and also a riding centre with escorted rides.

Other Activities: Nature Trail. Bird Spotting. Wild Life Photography.
