Insider Knowledge

" Quinta do Lago is a golfing paradise. You have to buy a club membership there as well as a house, so it's extremely exclusive. The people who live there tend to be ex-footballers. What some people do to avoid titles is buy just outside of Quinta, in places like Vil Verde, that are on the doorstep. They're not attached to the developments, but you still have access to all the facilities. You can also get bigger properties for less money."
