A host of Easter family fun at Quinta Do Lago
Golf lies at the heart of a fun-packed family Easter programme at Quinta do Lago, Europe’s premier contemporary luxury destination this month.
The resort was named Europe’s Best Golf Venue at both the 2015 and 2016 World Golf Awards, thanks to its fabulous three 18-hole championship courses and outstanding practice facilities, complete with a TaylorMade Performance Centre and new short game area to compliment the Paul McGinley Academy.
But there is plenty of golf-inspired fun for all abilities as the Academy is running a series of fun junior golf camps with a programme of classes for girls and boys from the ages of three to 16, which are aimed at introducing youngsters to the game and developing their skills under the guidance of the Quinta do Lago’s fully qualified professionals.
There are also a whole range of exciting activities for children to get involved in, including an Easter Sunday extravaganza with face painting, Easter egg hunts, bouncy castles, a climbing wall and a mini golf tournament with a range of goodies on offer.
For adults, there are plenty of indoor and outdoor leisure pursuits for the fitness enthusiasts, whether it’s one of the many classes in the resort’s state-of-the-art Active Q Gym, or an outside activity in the glorious surroundings overlooking the Ria Formosa Nature Park, such as the charity fun run over five or 10km.
The estate’s extensive facilities guarantee there is plenty to keep everyone occupied, with tennis, cycling and water sports just some of the activities available.
Quinta do Lago prides itself on delivering the finest cuisine, with some delicious Easter-themed meals, and the recently refurbished Bovino steakhouse is the latest addition to the already established range of elite dining experiences such as Casa do Lago, the stunning lakeside restaurant, and the Shack, where you can sit back, watch the sun set over the Nature Park and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere after a fun-packed day.
And as part of the impressive Easter programme, there is a host of family activities to enjoy at the wonderful array of restaurants, with live music and entertainment to keep all ages happy.
Located just 15 minutes from Faro airport and sitting among 2,000 acres of the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park, the award-winning sports and leisure destination offers residents and guests an unmatched location benefiting from a year-round temperate climate, a variety of lifestyle pursuits and relaxed dining.
Quinta do Lago’s fabulous Easter family fun deals runs from April 8 to 21 but the resort boasts a host of thrilling activities all-year round.
