    Enter the villa into a tiled entrance hall and turn right into the living area, which has comfy sofas, a wall-mounted television to watch your morning programmes on, and patio doors out to the terrace.

    Behind the seating area, there is a big round dining table. perfect for sociable dinner times and evening family games.

    From the open plan living room, a door leads through to the kitchen, which is fully fitted in a traditional Portugese; another door leads back to the main entrance hall.

    There is a breakfast area in the kitchen with cushioned bench seating and a dining table.

    Back in the main hallway, there is a downstairs loo opposite the main entrance and a couple of steps leading down to two twin bedrooms, which have en suite bathrooms, each with an overhead shower.

    From the entrance hall, gated stairs lead up to two bedrooms; a double bedroom to the right has an en suite bathroom and doors out to a balcony.

    To the left at the top of the stairs, a master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a separate shower cubicle, loo and twin basins.  The room has patio doors out to a private balcony with seating - the ideal spot to unwind with a glass of wine in the evenings.

    Parent Points: 

    • There are two steps leading from the main hallway to the ground floor bedrooms, and a further two steps in one of the upstairs bedrooms where extra care will need to be taken
    • Although the stairs are gated top and bottom, the balustrades have larger gaps than we recommend, so children should be supervised when using the stairs
    • As with all balconies, children should be supervised at all times and, if using the bedrooms, the doors out to the balconies should be kept locked when unsupervised


    Outside, there is a huge terrace, which has shaded and sunny spots that are perfect for chilling out and playing in.  The terrace is fenced to prevent unsupervised access to the pool.

    There is seating on the main terrace, with steps down to the lawn and a covered barbecue area, which has a dining table and huge fitted barbecue.

    To the left, gated steps lead to the heated (with additional cost) swimming pool, which has wide walk-in steps that little ones can play on.  There are loads of sun loungers at the poolside so you can dry off in the sun.

    Parent Points: 

    • There are some steps down to the pool area from the terrace and up to the outside kitchen so extra care will need to be taken here
    • There is a pedestrian gate at the rear of the property, please ensure that this is closed at all times
    • The terrace outside the villa has been fenced to provide a safe area away from the pool but please note that the garden, although surrounded by a hedge, is not completely enclosed beyond the terrace


    Pinheiros Alto

    Pinheiros Altos is a small resort with its own famous golf facilities and a shared swimming pool, which has walk-in steps into the water.  If you want to play in a toddler pool or to use other facilities, then it is a 20 minute walk to the centre of Quinta do Lago, and a 10 minute drive to Quinta do Lago's lake.

    Quinta do Lago

    Set in the huge Quinta do Lago resort, this is a great family destination, whether you want to build sandcastles on the beach, splash around in the pool, enjoy a choice of sporting activities, or simply relax.  We recommend hiring a car to enjoy all that Quinta do Lago has to offer.


    Quinta do Lago’s fabulous 3km stretch of sandy beach is reached by crossing a pretty wooden bridge over the tidal lagoon.

    The Blue Flag beach is clean and safe, making it perfect for sandcastle making and splashing in the sea; there is also a permanent lifeguard on duty during the summer.

    There are cafes and restaurants along the beach to enjoy a bite to eat, and sun loungers are available to hire.


    Quinta do Lago’s main lake is a beautiful spot, where you can watch the water sports or take the kids out on a pedalo for a fun family activity together.

    Swimming Pool

    The palm-fringed swimming pool at Quinta do Lago is surrounded by sun loungers and shades, and there is a separate toddler pool for little ones to splash around at a comfortable depth.


    Quinta do Lago has more than half a dozen restaurants, many gourmet, serving everything from seafood to wood-fired pizzas, and salads to sandwiches.

    Each takes advantage of the spectacular scenery, superb climate and fresh local produce for which the resort is renowned.


    The resort is home to the Quinta Shopping Centre, which is known for its designer boutiques and eateries; the perfect spot for retail therapy.

    Ria Formosa Nature Park

    One of Portugal's 'seven wonders', the park is a haven for nature lovers.  There are two nature trails within Quinta do Lago suitable for walkers or cyclists and the nature park can also be explored by boat.


    The Jim Stewart Tennis Academy has four courts and offers coaching, training and competitions.

    Starting with mini tennis for children as young as four, the academy caters for beginners through to professional ranked players.

    And more...

    There are lots of other sporting and leisure activities available, including horse riding, cycling and bird-watching.


    A short drive from Pinheiros Altos, Almancil is a busy town with plenty of up-market restaurants, shops and services.

    Family attractions

    Family attractions are plentiful in this part of the Algarve and there are several within a 40 minute drive.

    Aquashow Waterpark, in Quarteria, is the biggest water and amusement park in Portugal, with a vast water coaster, wave pool, tubing and an aqua train, as well as smaller swimming pools and water slides for the little ones.

    The Algarve's most popular visitor attraction is Zoomarine, a family theme park with an impressive aquarium and marine life presentations.

    Krazy World, near Silves, features an eclectic mix of child-friendly attractions including a zoo, mini golf, swimming pools, pony rides, petting farm and funfair.
