Areas of Portugal
Portugal has a moderate climate including three hundred days of sun, a pristine coastline, stunning scenery and generally good quality properties for sale offered throughout the country to include both affordable and luxury houses. Portugal boasts a favourable tax regime for new residents and property buyers with investment properties at fair market values which can offer the home buyer or investor excellent returns both through equity growth and annual returns with some investments offering six percent per annum or more.
Lisbon, is currently "on fire" (2018) due to the influx of many buyers from the European capitals, who are searching for a more favourable tax regime, better priced properties and generally excitement, culture, entertainment and the facilities that this beautiful European capital offers both buyers and visitors alike. Often many clients are astounded that you can still purchase one of the worlds best coffees for less than one Euro.
Porto, which many people have compared to the United Kingdom in relation to its greenery and climate, offers the more affordable home and boasts Portugal's second city Porto, which many say, has as much to offer as Lisbon. Porto is a great second home or primary residence destination due to the fact that your Pound, Dollar or Euro, goes that little further.
Douro, this region for many centuries has attracted the foreign investor and resident due to its climate, soil quality and probably the best Portuguese wine as well as of course Port. To boot, the Douro region is also stunningly beautiful, especially around the River Douro with old family estates and vineyards abound.
Algarve, which only a few years ago had seen a decrease in property values due to the financial collapse of 2008 is back in vogue as many foreign buyers have arrived to the conclusion that this part of the country offers affordably priced homes for sale in Portugal, a warm sea, excellent golf courses and many full-time foreign residents to call ones neighbour. Luxury estate areas like Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo are well desired destinations, boasting facilities which in standard terms are well above the norm'.
Silver Coast, is a destination for golfers, surfers and for those who perhaps prefer a more moderate climate than the Algarve. Due to the fact that the Silver Coast is only slightly north of Lisbon it also makes for easy arrival from the capital with agreeable properties within golf course resorts, probably being that little more affordable than most in the Algarve and certainly those around Lisbon, located either in the much favoured Cascais or Estoril.
Alentejo which is stunningly beautiful and covers almost one third of Portugal's land mass offers either countryside or coastal areas which provides the Portuguese property buyer with the choice between, country estates, farms, or agricultural land for commercial activities, and shabby chic beach cabanas or luxurious modern homes by the coast.
Comporta is a small coastal village located along the Alentejo Coast within the districts of both Grandola and Alcacer do Sal and is predicted to be one of the hottest property areas in southern Europe over the next fifteen to twenty years, due to its potential for low density, high quality development.
Melides now comes under the radar of Comporta and offers small country estate homes and properties some with distant sea views and family dwellings within the quaint village. Melides is less snobbish than Comporta and offers undulating lands with character which are mainly covered by either pine or cork trees.
Muda also forms part of the larger Comporta area and is the near beach country estate area with many luxury houses and properties which are owned both by the Portuguese and foreign buyers in the know. Due to the demand, it is quite difficult to find a suitable property to buy in Muda.
