Quinta do Lago, Europe’s premier luxury golf and lifestyle destination, is set to celebrate its 45th anniversary in style with a fun-packed autumn itinerary of family fun to ensure the sizzling summer continues into the final months of the year.
Renowned for delivering an array of luxury experiences in the tranquil setting of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, families can enjoy numerous sporting, social and family events between now and November at the famous Algarve venue, with the resort’s Paul McGinley Golf Academy being at the heart of the Halloween antics.
Golf remains at the heart of Quinta do Lago, but complementing that is the addition of the Campus, which is home to a range of sporting activities that includes tennis, padel and cycling where adults and children can take advantage of some of the most modern sporting facilities in Europe.
Benefiting from an all-year round temperate climate, younger guests are in for a delicious treat thanks to a Halloween programme that includes a haunted dinner at Casa do Lago, a brunch at Bovino steakhouse and an Alice in Wonderland tea party at Pure.
The family fun does not stop there thanks to a scary golf and costume parade where children can really get in the spirit of things by dressing up as vampires, villains, princesses and dinosaurs as well as take part in a Peddy paper race.
There will also be a host of entertainment at the Campus on Halloween day where youngsters can burn off steam with a series of tennis and padel games under the supervision of Quinta do Lag’s qualified staff, leaving parents some quality time to enjoy for themselves.
The resort’s golf academy will be staging a number of junior camps from October 23 to October 27. Available to children aged five to 16 and taking place from Monday to Friday over a three-week period, the sessions offer a comprehensive week’s coaching in a fun and competitive environment.
And youngsters will love Quinta do Lago’s Sunday Fun Golf events on the mornings of October 22 and 29.
With so much on offer for children, parents can make the most of their stay by relaxing at one of the ten restaurants and bars, including live music at the highly-acclaimed and newly-refurbished Bovino steakhouse, Casa do Lago and The Shack, or get out on one of the resort’s three 18-hole championship golf courses.
Away from the pristine fairways and manicured greens, the resort’s water sports centre offers the opportunity to try an array of activities including sailing, windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing and surf camps.
Excelling now for 45 years, Quinta do Lago provides the most vibrant and unique luxury lifestyle experience to be found anywhere in Europe, offering something to suit every taste and interest in one of the most beautiful of settings.
