The Association

A brief story about Aproquila, Statutes and Membership

Quinta do Lago Owners Association

APROQUILA is a not-for-profit voluntary organisation run by individual property owners to represent and assist its member property owners in Quinta do Lago. It is the only organisation in Quinta do Lago which is fully independent and committed to the interests not just of its members but of all property owners in the Estate.

We negotiate on behalf of all property-owning members with the local authorities such as the Council, the GNR, Security and Environmental entities.

We try to ensure that the standards you would like to see are maintained by owners, their guests and by those who rent accommodation here. The members of Aproquila enjoy the benefits of Aproquila’s Privilege Card, and benefit from discounts from a wide variety of high-end businesses within the Quinta do Lago / Almancil area, which are substantial and attractive.

We supply a Help Desk from our office at the Quinta do Lago Round About were members can call in at any time. We look forward for your visit!

These facilities include catering and bar services, spas, gymnasia, access to heated swimming pools, etc.

The Board of Directors greatly appreciates the support which it has received, not just currently, but over the years from the co-operative members and it is with pleasure that it warmly recommends our members, and all others, to avail of their excellent facilities.
