Quinta do Lago’s Picnic in the Park will give local children’s charities a boost
Quinta do Lago, regarded as one of Europe’s leading golf and leisure destinations, will be giving back to the local community this summer thanks to its hugely successful ‘Picnic in the Park’ events.
The prestigious Algarve resort is set to donate €5 to a selection of children’s charities for every one of the delicious locally-sourced hampers purchased over the next couple of months.
So, while temperatures may soar this summer, Quinta do Lago, which features three Championship-winning courses, will be hosting its cool and relaxed Picnic in the Park series every Friday
evening between July 7 and August 26 with visitors helping neighbouring children’s charitable causes.
The mouth-watering annual ‘Picnic in the Park’ has proved to be a popular and fun addition for families and guests of all ages with live music and children’s entertainment in the relaxed atmosphere next to the first tee of the stunning South Course – a course that has held the Portuguese Open on eight occasions.
There are four enticing fresh hampers to choose from, selected from the finest local ingredients – Pure, Bovino, Clubhouse and a Kid’s Basket that come with a blanket for added comfort, ranging in price from just €12.50 to €25, which can all be pre-booked.
And guests can also make their picnic experience even more exclusive by booking a private, secluded area complete with comfortable couches and butler service.
Pure, true to its name, is a delicious assortment of healthy super foods, such as signature salads, quinoa, chickpeas, lentils, chicken mango wrap, fresh fruit and a choice of detox juices or organic white wine.
Bovino is a meat-lovers dream with an exquisite choice of finest-cooked cuisine including slow-cooked empanadas, freshly-cooked signature hamburgers, caramelized onions, cheese and bacon salad, water and a bottle of selected wine.
The Clubhouse basket is an ideal choice for a lighter selection of cooked meats, cheese, nachos, dips, fruit salad and a selected bottle of wine, while the Kid’s Picnic Basket, which comprises water, soft drink, a slice of pizza and ice cream, is sure to be a hit with the little ones.
Quinta do Lago, now celebrating its 45th anniversary, has always taken pride of its top-quality golf and array of outdoor leisure and sporting pursuits, but guests will also love the relaxing and laid-back setting of the stunning Ria Formosa Natural Park and golden beaches.
Guest Services will complement every aspect by offering a specific range of exclusive benefits, discounts and privileges. And with three tiers of membership available there is the opportunity to tailor the package to the individual’s specific need, ensuring superior service, expert planning and unrivalled attention to detail that can now be enjoyed at a choice of desirable luxury villas which are available to both rent or buy.
