    Vale d'Oliveiras Quinta Resort & Spa is situated in the Algarve, a region voted the best place in the world to retire or live in for the third time by the Huffington Post and renowned for its some 300 days a year of sunshine, warm summers and mild winters. The favourable weather conditions of the Algarve makes it an ideal year round destination and also a great place for a holiday home investment.

    Located in a quiet, rural setting between the picturesque fishing village of Ferragudo, the popular family holiday destination of Carvoeiro and the traditional inland town of Lagoa, Vale d'Oliveiras provides a relaxing haven and a place to escape while enjoying the local environment.

    While the countryside location of the resort offers a peaceful retreat ideal for walking and cycling, you are only ever a short journey away from the nearest beaches, towns and nearby amenities.

    A local train station and major road networks are only 5 minutes away making the resort ideally located for those wanting to explore the Algarve a little further, while Faro Airport is only a 40 minute drive, making it easily accessible for those travelling from all major European cities and perfect for both short and longer breaks.

    Silves is a 20 minute car journey from Vale d'Oliveiras and is famed for its historic castle which sits proudly above the city that was once the capital of the Algarve. The cobbled streets, traditional restaurants, museums and shops selling products from local artisans makes it feel as if you are stepping back in time, while the annual Medieval Festival held in August is one of the most popular events on the Algarve calendar.

    Towards the west, is the city of Lagos, home to a rich maritime history which is reflected in the monuments, statues and museums dotted around the meandering streets. The local area is famed for its incredible beaches which include sweeping bays and stack filled coves.

    The coastline becomes more dramatic the further you travel west, providing a haven for surfers who flock to the often almost deserted beaches throughout the year.
