Quinta do Mar

A diminutive development lined by luxury villas and holiday apartments, Quinta do Mar has plenty to boast about. Let’s begin with the location, a stone’s throw from Ancão beach within the Algarve’s glitzy ‘Golden Triangle’. Secluded yet close to the well-established resorts of Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo, the balance is spot on. 

Villas in Quinta do Mar are equally impressive. Detached five bedroom dwellings rub shoulders with a clutch of modern holiday apartments overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. All are easy walking distance to the beach. Can’t decide between a pool day or a beach day? Simple – have both!

Beyond your mini-neighbourhood you’ll find exceptional restaurants, outdoor adventure and renowned golf resorts all close by.

Beach bags at the ready, because Praia do Ancão lies right around the corner from Quinta do Mar’s holiday homes. After a short walk across the dunes, you’ll be welcomed by fair sands as far as the eye can see. 

Daytime splashes and sunset strolls are a hit on this quiet beach. Cool off from the Mediterranean sunshine with a dip in the shallows, then fuel up at one of the nearby restaurants. Dos Passos is a local legend, serving delicious food alongside panoramic views across the sea. 

When you want to kick things up a gear, pedalo rental and other water sports can be enjoyed during the summer months. Alternatively, venture west along the coast to Garräo and Vale do Lobo beaches. Both are scenic and the latter has iconic cliffs to explore.

If relaxation is your number one priority, a villa holiday in Quinta do Mar will be right up your street. Lounging by the pool, kicking back on the beach, splashing in the sea – if you’re feeling chilled out, you’re doing it right!

That said, there are activities to punctuate your lazy days. For on-the-water fun, visit Quinta do Lago lake and jump into windsurfing, paddle boarding and kayaking. Right next to it are the natural trails of Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, blessed with abundant bird life.

Keen golfers have a choice of championship courses to look forward to, including the famed Quinta do Lago and San Lorenzo golf courses. Or, for pursuits of a more peaceful kind, treat yourself to a massage in one of the region’s spas.

If you’re planning on cooking up a storm in your villa rental, a trip to Pingo Doce supermarket is a must. There are two nearby, in Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Mar. Both are well stocked with fresh produce and all the basics. 

For a full-on spree, you’re better taking the 15 minute drive to Mar Shopping Algarve. This beast of a shopping centre is packed with high street brands. Have a browse, grab a bite to eat (yes, there’s a food court too), then head out to the lovely outdoor areas to soak up the sun.

Next door to MAR Shopping Algarve, ta quaint designer outlet is the place to pick up something a little extra special.

Ancão beach isn’t just a great spot to top up your tan – it’s also home to the best restaurants near Quinta do Mar. Dos Passos and The Bold Octopus sit right on the sands, serving up fresh-off-the-boat fish and classic Portuguese fare next to the ocean waves. 

More seaside scrumptiousness awaits up the coast on Praia do Garrão (Maria’s restaurant is a firm favourite), whereas trendy beach bars rule the roost in the buzzier resort of Vale do Lobo. 

Almancil, meanwhile, has a truly gastronomic heart. A 10 minute drive from Quinta do Mar, this traditional town is the home of fine dining in the Algarve. Michelin-starred menus, family-run pizzerias, sushi spreads – take your pick and enjoy a five-star feast every night of your trip. 

Before you’ve even set foot on the beach, family-friendly villas in Quinta do Mar are well-equipped to keep young ones entertained. All rental villas come with a private pool, as well as other goodies the kids will love like lush gardens and games rooms. Hands up who fancies a table tennis tournament!  

Complete with al fresco barbecues and fully-fitted kitchens, there’s no chance of hungry tummies putting a dampener on your day.

Our holiday apartments also benefit from shared pool access. But the cherry on top has to be your very own jacuzzi on the private terrace. WiFi and air conditioning comes as standard so, no matter the size of your group, your family’s comfort and convenience comes first.
