When you buy a luxury holiday home in the sun, what exactly should you look for? The answer is this villa in Lagos – here’s why.
"In today’s European property hotspots, you can be charged millions of euros for the privilege of a prime location and the je ne sais quoi that whispers luxury", says Winkworth International’s David King. "In Portugal’s beautiful Algarve however, that is not the case". Moving money away from the escalating property taxes hitting some of the world’s prime property markets is becoming common among Winkworth International’s high net worth buyers. Together with the affordability of prime property in the Algarve, where property per square metre costs a fraction of the price, low living expenses are another reason to make that move.
So why buy this particular luxury Algarve villa for sale? Firstly, the panoramic views of the Carvoeiro coastline, Bay of Alvor, and Monchique mountains are breathtaking. Just minutes from Lagos city, you’ll relax into the space and seclusion of the hilltop location, surrounded by foliage and endless blue skies.
A mix of traditional whitewash, local stone and sleek lines give the low rise villa – built at ground and basement level – the look of an exclusive compound, enhanced by an immaculate pool area. Extensive security incorporates a double-gated secure entrance and a dedicated security room. Automated garden irrigation completes the high-spec finish.
Inside, a vast kitchen-diner features custom made granite worktops and an airy living room opens onto a stunning terrace. 5 double ensuite bedrooms with private balconies will impress visiting guests, while an endless list of extras includes a cinema room, games room, gym and sauna. The pièce de résistance is a wine cave, ready and waiting to cool your vinho verde.
For the luxury property buyer, this villa sits in the perfect location. In the past, parts of the Algarve were overlooked by international prime property buyers; now, its cultural and culinary heritage has a growing reputation around the world. Lagos, with its fascinating history, is a fine example of the traditional town squares, fresh fish and produce markets, coffee bars and beaches that need little enhancement – other than a boutique here and a newly awarded Michelin star there (there are now a total of 6 michelin starred restaurants across the Algarve). A special mention also goes to the idyllic Onyria Palmares Golf Resort.
