Four Seasons Fairways Unveils New Designer Villas in Portugal

July 8, 2017 -

In Quinta do Lago, one of Europe’s finest destinations, nestled within the privacy and security of the Ria Formosa nature reserve, lies Four Seasons Fairways.

This discreet and elegant private resort and clubhouse - with 132 colonial style villas and apartments set in beautifully landscaped gardens is currently undertaking a major €2M investment program, designed to ensure the resort maintains its prestigious status.

Last Winter, 32 of the villas underwent a complete refurbishment marking the beginning of a total overhaul of the entire resort. These extensive villa renovations cleverly blend authentic Portuguese style with a modern and vibrant interior décor and furnishings, new state-of-the-art kitchens and lighting design that is both functional and atmosphere-enhancing. Fresh blues and greens bring the beauty of the outdoors into the living space. Designer furniture, granite bathrooms, bespoke artwork and custom interior fittings personalize each villa in individual, comfortable and stylish fashion. The focus is on easy living, relaxation and a home from home villa lifestyle.

By the start of the 2018 summer season a further renovation of another 20 villas along with the entire club-house facilities including the restaurant, bar, indoor and outdoor pools, kids club and fitness suite will be completed.

The Resort

What sets Four Season Fairways apart is the privacy guests are given whilst enjoying all the facilities of an established and well-connected resort. Unlike anyone else in the area, Fairways offers private pools or Jacuzzis within each of its accommodation options, that range from two and three double bedrooms villas or apartments, catering for individuals, couples or family groups. With the Algarve enjoying 300 days of sunshine a year, each villa is also equipped with its own BBQ for al fresco dining all year round and the modern kitchens are fully-equipped for every culinary task.

Four Seasons Fairways is much more than a villa complex. Its clubhouse has a reputation for its friendly and welcoming atmosphere. There are large indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna, steam room, a well-equipped gym, tennis, golf booking office and a beauty & wellness center as well as a restaurant serving local and international fare.



Dining at Four Seasons Fairways

Flôr Da Quinta, the Four Seasons Fairways Restaurant serves up a delicious combination of international and Portuguese dishes all year round either in the stylish interior or on the terrace for the long, warmer evenings. The spacious lounge bar makes an ideal venue for sun-downers, day time snacks or after dinner coffee and conversation. For in-villa dining, a take-away option is available allowing guests to choose from either the snack or A La Carte menu and serve in the comfort of their own accommodation. There is also a handy mini market on site selling all the essentials including fresh bread and local produce.

GOLF at Four Seasons Fairways

One of the Algarve’s favorite pastimes can be appreciated on any of the 30 golf courses in the area. Fairways guests are entitled to reduced green-fees for the majority of these courses. These discounts are up to 52% with other special offers available.

The Four Seasons Fairways Club Competition is held regularly at one of the Quinta do Lago South or North courses where eight Portuguese Opens have been played and now include Pinheiros Altos, host to various qualifying sessions for the Senior European Tour. These courses meander through the spectacular 2,000-acre estate and afford delightful views of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, providing a solid test of nerve for players of all levels and abilities.

Life at Four Seasons Fairways

If you can bear to tear yourself away from the resort for some local exploration, there is a plethora of things to see and do, from trips to the charming local markets such as Loulé selling fresh fish, meat and Portuguese specialty ingredients, boat trips to the barrier islands, sunset cruises, deep sea fishing, winery and vineyard tours, day trips further afield to Sintra, Estoril, Oporto and even Seville, Spain and local jeep safaris among much more which can all be discovered using #LifeAtFairways.

Whatever the time of year, Four Season Fairways is a welcome retreat for individuals, couples or groups looking for a home for home in the Algarve.

7 nights in a two bed apartment with Jacuzzi costs €1200 in low season and €2900 in high season.
