Enjoy a relaxed champagne sunset cruise along the coast admiring the enchanting rock formations, caves and beaches of the Algarve at sunset before returning to your private villa for a relaxed barbeque of freshly grilled sardines and squid with lemon and olives; enjoy a day’s golf at one of the nearby world class golf courses before heading back into Albufeira for an aperitif of chilled white port at one of the marina-side cafés; spend a relaxing morning sunbathing on the terrace of your luxury villa before heading off to the charming Portuguese market town of Loule to browse through the daily market and shops and soak up the distinctly Portuguese ambience of locals socialising in open air cafes, women gossiping in doorways and old men sitting all day on the same bench and watching the world go by. Located right in the heart of the south coast of Portugal and blessed with a year round Mediterranean climate, there is an excellent range of Albufeira property for sale offering investors the opportunity to become part of this vibrant and laid back seaside resort.
Once a thriving fishing village, Albufeira is now the largest, liveliest and most energetic of all of the resort towns that line southern Portugal’s beautiful Algarve coastline. With its miles of stunning golden sandy beaches, historic old town, excellent restaurants and buzzing nightlife there is lots to see and do for everyone. The modern marina is surrounded by candy-coloured apartments with a waterfront promenade and is the base for the local fishermen as well as diving, dolphin watching and boat trips. It’s also the epicentre of the town’s vibrant nightlife where the dancing and drinking continues until the early hours of the morning. Albufeira’s picturesque old town of typical Moorish white buildings perches on low sandstone cliffs facing the sea and is a world away from the lively marina area. Its pretty cobbled streets are lined with restaurants, cafés, bars and shops where you can sit and share a leisurely dinner of Cataplana - a dish of Moorish influence which uses a clam shaped copper pan to cook clams, or a mix of fish and seafood, with spicy sausage, tomatoes, wine, garlic and herbs.
Historically the Algarve has long attracted European second-home buyers. The region's picturesque beaches, 37 championship golf courses, and Mediterranean climate makes it a popular choice for second-home owners, while the long rental season from Easter to late October attracts investors looking for high yield returns. The recent expansion of Faro airport, major infrastructure improvements and tax benefits for non-residents have all helped restore confidence in the Algarve property market. Consequently Albufeira property commands high prices and investing in a property to rent as a holiday home will yield excellent returns. There is a wide range of Albufeira property for sale to suit all tastes and budgets both in the town itself and in the surrounding areas.
In the town itself Albufeira property is varied ranging from traditional style townhouses, new luxury villas to modern and contemporary apartments. There are a number of new residential developments being built in downtown Albufeira near to the marina and you can choose from detached villas, apartments or traditional style townhouses most set within residential condominiums with communal facilities. For example a detached three bedroom villa with stunning views of the marina start at around 600,000 EUR and two bedroom apartments with sun terrace offering marina views in a residential condominium with swimming pool, lush gardens and leisure facilities start at around 210,000 EUR. There is a good range of modern villas for sale within walking distance of both the beach and the marina. Prices start at around 350,000 EUR for three bedrooms rising to around 650,000 EUR for larger properties.
Heading out of the city there is a wide range of Albufeira property for sale including white stone houses and villas. Luxury hillside villas on secluded plots with private gardens and swimming pools, huge terraces with outside kitchens and fabulous views of the sea start at around 800,000 EUR. For those yearning for more traditional Portuguese-style properties there are some new developments building spacious white stone townhouses in the traditional style yet with all modern conveniences with access to shared swimming pool and parking. Prices typically start at around 270,000 EUR for a four bedroom property. At the very top end of the market are some superb villas in wonderful hillside locations in the surrounding countryside starting at around 2m EUR and going up to over 4m EUR. These properties offer stunning contemporary architecture set in extensive and beautifully manicured gardens typically with infinity swimming pool looking over the countryside to the sea and large terraces for outdoor dining.
