Opened in 1989, Four Seasons Fairways is situated within the prestigious development of Quinta do Lago, a 2,000 acre luxury golf and leisure development where construction has been limited to only 8%, thus keeping the area green and unspoiled. The utmost care and attention has gone into retaining its natural beauty of pinewoods and lakes.
