Situated in the picturesque Portuguese Algarve is Quinta do Mar, a new five star development comprising superior villas and top quality amenities, all just a short walk from gorgeous beaches. The private cul-de-sac occupies a prime location at the heart of what is affectionately known as the 'Golden Triangle' - three popular, high class resorts of Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago and Amancil.
At just 20 minutes' drive away from Faro International Airport, Quinta do Mar is ideally placed to offer families, couples and groups a superb getaway, if not a completely new lease of life.
If you like your Mediterranean villas with a heated swimming pool, hot tub in the master bedroom and full maid service - not to mention granite kitchen worktops and a sophisticated al fresco dining area - then head to Quinta do Mar. The exclusive development features some of the most luxurious and comfortable accommodation in the Algarve, within easy access of exceptional facilities and the region's awe-inspiring natural landscape. It's little wonder so many visitors decide to make their stay a permanent arrangement.
Whether you want to simply relax on a sun lounger or take a horse riding lesson amongst the pine trees, there are plenty of activities to keep discerning residents or holidaymakers occupied. On the doorstep are a plethora of sports pitches, courts and centres with seven championship-standard golf courses situated just a few miles away.
Those with an aversion to physical activity might be pleased to learn that five minutes in the other direction brings you to the high-end Quinta Shopping mall and the exclusive Vale do Lobo Praça - a 'bustling beachside complex' comprising restaurants, bars, family entertainment and great nightlife. Keep an eye out for any celebrities, this prestigious region is often frequented by golf-loving stars.
One of the Algarve's biggest draws is its seemingly-endless stretches of golden, sandy beaches. At Quinta do Mar, guests and local as totally spoiled, with several heavenly shores within walking distance. The nearest is Praia do Anção, a veritable paradise which is found within the Ria Formosa UNESCO-listed site.
This beach enjoys a temperate climate, with sunshine almost year-round. The water can be a little chilly before summer truly arrives, but once you're in, you won't notice - especially if you are partaking in one of the water sports activities on offer. In the vicinity are several large hotels, proffering exquisite regional cuisine, so there's no reason to go hungry.
Living so close by, evening walks along the beach - if not early morning jogs - will no doubt become an integral part of your time at the development.
Quinta do Mar offers it all: relaxation, exhilaration and top quality facilities. You might say it's the - excuse the dreadful pun - quinta-ssential destination!
