Quinta do Lago- Sitting amongst 2,000 acres of the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park and its unique beaches, Quinta do Lago offers its residents and guests an unparalleled location benefiting from a year-round temperate climate. The magnificent golf courses and grand villas blend with green umbrella pines, the tranquility of lakes, the beauty of sandy beaches and the wildlife from the Ria Formosa Natural Park. With its state of the art driving range, Paul McGinley Academy and TaylorMade Custom Fitting Centre it provides a haven for golfers of all levels. At each of the restaurants, there is a gourmet experience to be enjoyed. Each of them takes advantage of the spectacular scenery, superb climate and fresh Mediterranean produce that the resort has become famous for. Education is also at the heart of this community. The International School São Lorenço, available for students in both Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo, provides top quality education from primary right up to pre- higher education, and they assure the very best for their students. Some of the school facilities, like the sports field, are also soon to become available for public use. Their main ethos is to make sure both international and Portuguese students become fluent in Portuguese or English, or both- depending on their background, whilst still offering the teaching of other modern languages, including Mandarin.
