Quinta do Lago is arguably Portugal’s most celebrated luxury resort. Established in 1971 by André Jordan it was sold 16 years later to a consortium of British shareholders who, in turn, sold it to Irish billionaire Denis O’Brien in 1998. Developed on 18 hectares of the beautiful Ria Formosa National Park, its lakes, marshes, dunes and pine forests are home to many migratory birds that travel between Africa and Europe. They also play host to numerous animal species and a wide variety of aquatic life.
As one of Europe’s few remaining natural coastal locations the Ria Formosa National Park enjoys UNESCO protection. Because of this, Quinta do Lago has always worked directly with Ria Formosa’s administration to ensure the resort’s development has never disturbed the environmental equilibrium of the area. No detached properties in Quinta do Lago are higher than 2 stories and all are designed to blend easily with the surrounding countryside.
There are few luxury resorts around the world that have paid such close attention to nature and the environment in their development. Quinta do Lago has a construction density of only 8%. This fact alone makes Quinta do Lago a highly desirable place to live. Take in to consideration its exceptional location, weather (more than 300 days of sunshine annually) and recreation facilities and it is easy to see why property prices in Quinta do Lago have continued to appreciate since its inception.
