The local area:

The Western Algarve is well known for its unspoilt landscape and coastline, and for anyone visiting for the first time, the wild and beautiful scenery can be breathtaking.

The Atlantic coast offers stunning beaches, each with a very individual character. Some are ideal for sunbathing and gentle beach activities, others better suited to popular water-sports, such as Surfing and Windsurfing.


Quinta das Lajes is located within easy access of Lagos, a vibrant town with plenty of restaurants and bars and a highly cosmopolitan atmosphere, especially during the summer months.

Lagos is a traditional harbour town with a more recently developed modern marina, from where visitors can take excursions to the Grottoes and 'Seafaris' to view dolphins in their natural habitat.

Praia de Luz:

A short walk along the valley from Quinta das Lajes is the coastal village of Praia da Luz, famous for it's sun drenched sands and calm sea. Luz boasts all the virtues of a small but prominent tourist resort, with diverse restaurants, bars and shops.
