How the Algarve’s Four Seasons Fairway brings together all the elements of luxurious overseas getaway


Four Seasons Fairways in Quinta do Lago is a true hidden gem, exquisitely nestled within the Ria Formosa nature reserve. What makes it so special is that they have brilliantly and cleverly combined the best bits of villa holiday with the amenities and conveniences of a hotel.

Open year round, this discreet and elegant villa resort is home to 132 newly refurbished traditional style villas and apartments set in verdant landscaped gardens. Each seamlessly blends authentic Portuguese style with a modern and vibrant interior plus their very own pool or jacuzzi, terrace or garden area and outdoor BBQ/cooking station.

The stylish villas complement the resort’s Clubhouse area, which is home to stunning heated indoor and outdoor pools, Kids’ Club, wine cellar, fully equipped gym, treatment rooms and ingeniously designed indoor-outdoor bar that sits alongside cosy areas for relaxing along with a spectacular fireplace. Crittall doors and windows are in abundance and have been skillfully designed and finished with a brushed copper effect to reflect the traditional Portuguese ‘Cataplana’, an item of cookware used to prepare Portuguese seafood dishes. Handmade pendant lights using linked copper rings to emulate beehives hang throughout and have been designed to reflect the local area’s sizeable production of honey. The Clubhouse is also home to VIVO Bistro & Cocktail Lounge and Amara, an intimate restaurant where they have twinned sophistication and Portuguese traditions with contemporary cuisine to give guests an unmistakable and memorable experience. This month will see the opening of a brand-new outdoor terrace dining area at Amara – the perfect spot to take advantage of the long, warm, and peaceful evenings. The layout and design of the restaurants reflect the essence of Portuguese dining – of coming together resulting in a social and convivial atmosphere. 


The area surrounding the resort is home to numerous championship golf courses and is a haven for those into the game, but also caters to those who aren’t. The resort is just a stone’s throw from the stunning Ria Formosa nature reserve, a scenic swirl of seawater lagoons, sandy islands, salt marshlands and diverse bird life, making it the perfect setting for walking, running, and cycling.

Four Seasons Fairways effortlessly manages to cater for couples and families alike with guests and staff greeting each other like long lost friends. The warmth exuding from this place is palpable and is no surprise that guests return year on year – the love and attachment to the resort is clear with memories made spanning generations. And with 3,000 hours of sunshine and just three hours flight from the UK, the Algarve really is unique in that it offers a truly delightful year-round destination.
