Portugal - Algarve

Portugal Is The Place For You

Portuguese explorer and trader Jorge Álvares (died July 8, 1521) is credited as the first European explorer to have reached China and Hong Kong by sea after making first contact on Asian soil in Guangdong, Southern China in May 1513.

Now the circle is being completed as Chinese investors are beginning to see Portugal—on the far West coast of Europe—as the perfect place to live and to pursue their businesses within the European Economic Community and all the markets that this opens up for them.

 

Why is Portugal the perfect destination for your investment project?

Portugal is not only a good country in which to invest but is also a most desirable place to live and do business as well as a place to visit and enjoy.  You can find here a safe country, environmentally responsible, with all the privileges nature has to offer, rich leisure and culture and with high quality healthcare facilities. Portugal is blessed by abundant sunlight, clean air and warm temperatures that, certainly, makes you feel motivated and productive at work and serene and relaxed in your leisure time.

As an investment destination, its success is based on the country's positive approach towards business development and attracting foreign investment.

This approach has ensured a favourable business environment, making us an excellent location within the west coast of Europe: we have strategic access to markets, competitive operational costs, pro-active reforms, a network of modern infrastructure, a commitment to education and science, and flexible, dedicated and competent human resources.

These factors have contributed to a steady flow of new investment in manufacturing, tourism, commerce and services, as evidenced by the significant number of companies who have chosen to invest in Portugal recently.

Algarve

Portugal’s most southerly region has a wonderfully mild and healthy climate, the cleanest air, 300-plus days of sunshine (3,000 hours!) per year, and splendid beaches bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, which make it a perfect destination for all seasons. The Algarve is barely 150 km wide from west coast to the Spanish border in the east, yet boasts an amazing 39 of Europe’s best golf courses, some of which are ranked amongst the best in the world with designers like the legendary Sir Henry Cotton, Arnold Palmer and Sir Nick Faldo. No wonder the Algarve is known as the sunshine playground of Europe!  The historic town of Lagos is a cornucopia of fantastic high-value, high-status properties, located within an area that is hugely popular with the more affluent and discerning buyer seeking luxury state-of-the-art properties set on spacious plots with high degrees of privacy yet within a few kilometres of the finest golf courses, beaches, restaurants and social amenities. There are very few places in the world to match the Algarve in offering such luxury, such privacy, such security and such sporting and social interaction all within such a compact and family-friendly community.

 

Lisbon

Lisbon is an illuminated city. The almost constant presence of sunshine and the River Tagus transforms the Portuguese capital into a mirror of a thousand colours - highlighting the city’s unique architecture and beauty.
There are so many things to see and do in Lisbon that visitors have access to a wide array of different experiences.
As we walk through Lisbon - whose history spans back thousands of years – we find streets filled with heritage monuments, and characteristic neighbourhoods where the city first developed and can still be experienced at its most genuine level.The River Tagus, whose riverfront is dedicated to leisure activities and links the monumental zone of  Belém  with the modern area of the Parque das Nações. Lisbon has nightlife  that continues till dawn, several sports,  with excellent Golfe courses and beaches close at hand. You can  also experience calmer moments in Lisbon in the  city’s parks, gardens, belvederes, cafés and esplanades. Or simply enjoy the pure pleasure of being in Lisbon, through its gastronomy, luxury hotels, spas and shopping centers.

 

Porto

Portugal was born in the North was founded in the 12th century and the Portuguese became a people and a nation. Porto is a World Heritage city, is the gateway and departure point for a journey across the natural and cultural diversity of the region. It is known for the Port wine which is shipped from here all over the world, but also for a heritage which combines ancient churches and monuments, such as the Cathedral and the Church of São Francisco, and modern buildings, such as Casa da Música and the Serralves Museum. And also for its School of Architecture which bred names like Álvaro Siza Vieira and Eduardo Souto de Moura, both winners of the Pritzker Prize. The region is crossed by the River Douro which enters Portugal between the ravines and mountains of the interior to flow through the entire World Heritage landscape where the Port and Douro wines are produced. It is from here that the wine is sent to the lodges at Vila Nova de Gaia, as the cruises touring the region make their way upriver.Whether in leisure activities, like golf and spas, or business, this region is acquiring a huge prominence and a peculiar charm.

You will find the Baroque architecture of Northern Portugal in its stone and gilded carvings side by side with rural chapels. In its cities, which retain a human scale, such as Viana do Castelo, Braga, Lamego, Chaves and Vila Real, and in the manor houses and stately halls, you will find the genuine Portuguese people, who like to share their table, their customs and traditions. In Porto and Northern Portugal, the joy and gratitude for all we have and are is experienced in the most spontaneous way.





Why buy Villas and Apartments in the Algarve.

The Algarve, which stretches across the southernmost part of Portugal from the border with Spain to the Cape St Vincent, the most south-westerly point in Europe is the third richest region in the country and one of Europe’s top choices for people seeking to buy a home in the sun.

The value-for-money variety makes it a magnet for real estate investors worldwide looking for opportunities to maximise their investments.

It has a strong association with the UK, as Britain’s oldest ally, and the big Portuguese communities of France, Germany and other countries including Canada mean that Algarve Villas and Apartments are in huge demand for purchase and for rental.

Approximately 10 million tourists, mainly from the UK, France and the countries of northern Europe spend their vacations in the easily accessible Algarve each year which means those millions of people are looking to rent Algarve Villas and Apartments for their summer vacations, bringing in big returns for owners.

The Western Algarve, and the town of Lagos in particular, is popular for its gorgeous beaches, beautiful coastline, and spectacular historical sites…and also for Algarve Property at much more attractive prices than the central and eastern Algarve.

More importantly, from an investment point of view, the Algarve is almost a year-round destination which means the income stream from your Algarve Villa or Apartment spans a much longer period.

The Algarve comes most alive in Spring, Summer and the early Autumn, with most holidaymakers spending their time on, or close to, the many beautiful beaches, although there are many options for the more adventurous and the thrill-seekers.

Restaurants abound, serving a wide and affordable range of desirable cuisines and wines. Luxury golf courses, nightlife, shopping malls, and shops of all kind proliferate in and around the residential areas, as so much is concentrated into the relatively small area of this wonderful part of Portugal.

But the huge numbers of golf courses on average there is roughly one every three miles along the 90-mile width of the Algarve means the region is also a popular Winter destination for golfers, making it even more desirable for people looking to buy into the lucrative Algarve Villas and Apartments market.

Algarve Property for Sale

When looking to invest in an Algarve property for sale, it is not just the price you can afford that matters. Buying a property can bring you years of peace and security if you find the one best equipped to your needs and budget. But there are other factors to contemplate before you decide which Algarve Apartment or Villa you should buy and prepare to move into, or offer for holiday rental like, why The Algarve?

As the famous English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning said: “Let me count the ways.”

The Algarve, which is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal and has an area of about 5,000 square kilometers containing 16 municipalities, is a panoramic landscape of natural beauty, with lush green meadows, blue skies, and turquoise waters.

The historical town of Lagos in particular, features gorgeous beaches and stunning vistas. But the footprint of man over the centuries has left a country steeped in historical sites and traditions, alongside a whole plethora of modern Algarve Villas and Apartments in wonderful locations.

Lagos offers direct access to fishing, sailing, water sports and excursions like Dolphin-watching and cruises out of the beautiful Marina where sailing enthusiasts can moor their boats and holidaymakers can dine or simply sip their drinks in such peaceful surroundings as they gaze over the boats nestling into their berths and across the Bensafrim River into this lovely old town.

Investing in a Western Algarve property for sale and we do have properties in and around the Marina means that you can enjoy the best of both worlds. You can live a quiet low-tempo life, yet be just a short distance from all the bustling action and entertainment. The Algarve is just bursting with restaurants serving between them a global variety of international dishes and the finest of locally-sourced seafood whilst supermarkets and mini-mercados are to be found all around the town for those times you prefer to stay in your Algarve Villas and Apartments and prepare your own food, perhaps grilling today’s catch from the fish market on your own poolside barbecue.

And because there is already a big Expat community the support services are already in place here, with companies set up to supply and service this growing community via healthcare, technical services right down to being able to go out and buy your own country’s newspapers on the day they are published to take back to your villa or apartment and read over breakfast.

You can watch UK TV programmes, eat British foods, drinking British beers alongside the wonderful domestic wines, spirits, liquors and foodstuffs so deliciously produced in Portugal.

The Algarve, without question, is one of the most beautiful destinations in Europe for holidaymakers and for people seeking a new life in the sun, yet within a mere two or three hours from their north European homelands. Little wonder why this region attracts so much attention the sandy beaches, world class hotels and infrastructure are all part of the attraction. But as a buyer you will learn that the Algarve Real Estate market boasts some of the most cost-effective properties in the world, providing such a good rental return over a longer period than many other destinations, much of it from the huge pool of 10 million tourists that visit the region every year.

If you are an investor the Algarve Real Estate market offers a breathtaking selection of all varieties of hot properties. These include Algarve villas for sale, Algarve apartments for sale and Algarve houses for sale of all types in areas both rich and exclusive; the more lively tourist areas or the quiet and more remote districts.
