About Quinta do Lago 

Villa Athena is near the Quinta Do Lago Water Sports Centre. Catering for water babies of all ages, the centre offers a terrific range of both lake and beach water sports. The beach is just a walk across from the lake, along the famous and picturesque wooden bridge. By the lake you also have The Shack Bar - home to great fun, food and music, as well as Bovino and Casa do Lago restaurants.

Quinta do Lago is one of the most luxurious areas on the Algarve coast. Stunning, architecturally designed villas and resorts sit in harmony within the 100’s of hectares of natural pine forest and award winning landscaped gardens, all intertwined with 4 golf courses.

Facilities include a floodlit tennis courts centre and water sports centre. If you need a bit of retail therapy, a bite to eat or even a late night drink and dance, the ’Q’ Quinta Shopping is a the entrance of the Resort and features fabulous boutiques offering exclusive designer labels and interior designers showing off object d’art. In addition, there are some appetising international restaurants and some lively bars.

The objective in Quinta do Lago was to create a luxury estate offering owners and guests privacy, tranquillity and seclusion, combined with an active social and sporting life and a wide range of leisure and sporting facilities.

The environment at Quinta do Lago has UNESCO protection because of the 18 hectares of the Ria Formosa Natural Park which falls within Quinta Do Lago boundaries.
