Fancy owning a state-of-the-art mansion in what has been voted the ‘best beach destination in the world’? If you do, then you’ll need to move fast because there’s going to be a lot of interest in acquiring this one-of-a-kind, luxury residence in a prime location. The mansion is in Vale de Lobo, one of the key destinations of the coastal Algarve. It’s an area of great beauty where the soft golden sands of the superb beaches are juxtaposed with lush green pine forest. Vale de Lobo is also home to two championship golf courses, offering a year-round diary of tournaments, competitions and unrivalled golfing throughout the year. The Algarve’s year-round sun is perfect for a wide range of sports, and you’ll find the opportunity to engage in all of them in the Vale de Lobo.
The three-storey mansion occupies a huge 6,000 square metre plot which gives it an enormous 1,605 square metres of space in total. Nestling on the hillside, the mansion, its landscaped gardens and generous pool look out over the golf course and ocean. The clean modern lines of the building’s exterior open onto interiors full of light and space, truly a blank canvas from which you can create the home of your dreams. The accommodation is comprised of seven bedrooms with four bathrooms and the option for more. The kitchen, fitted with top of the range equipment opens onto an indoor/outdoor barbeque area, because of course, with such glorious year-round weather, you are going to be spending a lot of time relaxing on the mansion’s extensive terraces or cooling off in the integral pool.
Vale de Lobo is just a half hour’s drive from Faro, transport hub of the Algarve. The international airport is seven miles south of the city and the city itself provides efficient links by coach and rail to the rest of Portugal. Most visitors to the Algarve, arriving at the airport, don’t bother to stop off at the city of Faro and by not doing so they miss out on one of Portugal’s most historic and culturally rich cities. Inside the ancient city walls you’ll find a maze of charming, cobbled streets, a gothic cathedral and an episcopal palace and beyond the walls you’ll find pedestrianised shopping areas with beautiful squares and bars and restaurants a plenty. South of Faro lies the Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, an area of marsh and mudflats which is habitat to large numbers of migratory birds and wildlife.
So, your €10.95 million will not just buy you a superb contemporary mansion with outstanding views, but it will also buy you a home in one of the most desirable beach locations in the world. It will give you access to almost any sport which you could wish to take part in and when you crave the pleasures of a city, Faro is only a short drive away. The proximity of Faro’s international airport also means that you can be in most European capitals within a couple of hours.
