Palmer & Parker has been involved with Quinta do Lago since the 1970s, before construction even began, and has developed an unrivalled level of expertise in the area. Each luxury villa offered by the firm has been carefully chosen to meet the most exacting standards of quality; as a result, the selection of luxury villas represents the very best that Quinta do Lago has to offer.

Each luxury villa at Quinta do Lago has been individually designed within its own large plot, and the area as a whole offers a very low building density. For the 2011 season, two superb new villas have been added. Villa Douro, which sleeps up to 10 people, is a modern yet inviting and very comfortable villa that is furnished to a high standard throughout. It features air conditioning and a swimming pool, and occupies an excellent location in the second line from the sea at the beach end of Parque Atlantico, one of the most prestigious areas of Quinta do Lago. The ground floor offers an open-plan living and dining area with comfortable seating, cable TV and doors to the garden and pool, plus dining for up to 12 people. There is a modern kitchen and a second, more formal living room, as well as five bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. A beautiful garden, above average size for the area and featuring pool and children's play area, completes the property.

The other new luxury villa, Sierra, is a single-level three-bedroom luxury villa that sleeps up to six people, within easy walking distance of Quinta do Lago's main retail area. It offers a living room, separate dining room, fully equipped kitchen and charming al-fresco covered dining terrace with views of an orchard garden and access to the large pool. There are three bedrooms, two en suite and one with a bathroom adjacent.

Arianna, which was only completed in 2010, offers accommodation of the very highest standard, with a very spacious three-zone living room, dining for up to 10 people, well-equipped kitchen and five bedrooms (three doubles and two twins). Outdoors, the large heated pool features a raised jacuzzi with a cascade leading into the main pool.

Another new house, Contemporanea, is one of the most modern and stylish houses in the region, with a truly striking pool area and beautifully designed interiors.
