The Golden Triangle encompasses three world-class destinations that are easy on the senses and demanding on the pocketbook – luxury does not come without a price tag nor lack the exclusivity factor.

The names of these three prized resorts trip off the tongue of any well-heeled jet setter and for good reason – the heady combo of good living and 6-star facilities combined with eye-popping nature is a rare find.

Quinta do Lago

Quinta do Lago is a millionaire’s playground: exclusive, prestigious, and elite yet unpretentious, easy-going and scenic. If you look beyond the showy mansions and fleets of dream cars to the nature preserves, the flamboyance of grazing flamingos, golden sand dunes and hiking trails, you’ll find the Quinta do Lago that appeals to your personality.

World-class golf courses, fine dining or relaxed beachside bistros and superb sporting facilities set the tone for a sophisticated resort for all ages filled with an air of wellbeing and elan.

Vale do Lobo

Vale do Lobo is a charming jigsaw of small, manicured streets and roadways lined with mature pine trees, aromatic shrubs, and flowering plants. A land unto itself that oozes the good life.

Up and down gentle hills and slopes, the intimate Vale do Lobo development is divided into stunning subsections of whitewashed Algarvian style townhomes, apartments, villas and impressive contemporary mansions of all architectural styles are poised to suit all tastes and wallets.


Hills ease into coastal plains and the landscape fills with lush green pine trees, exotic marshland, and world-class golf courses in Vilamoura. The past and the present all seem to live together harmoniously. A marina full of multi-million-Euro yachts, an oceanside casino, restaurants, and bars are all only minutes away from undulating interiors full of old-world charm, donkeys, and orange groves.
