Classic Quinta near Lagos
Self catering holiday rental villa with seaview and privacy, Western Algarve, Portugal

Pool area in early March, its entrance flanked by flowering Jacaranda and Brugmansia. Pool size is 5 x 10 m (16.5 x 33 ft) excluding overflow tank and Roman entrance. Its maximum depth of 240 cm (7 ft 6") allows diving under all angles. The entrance is quite shallow, the slope gradual. The unusual white interior tiling makes it a very bright looking pool under all weather conditions, and gives an especially pretty effect at night.
