Vale do Lobo - Why buy here?

An overview of Vale do Lobo by Doug Styles

Properties for sale in Vale do Lobo are amongst the finest villas and apartments in Portugal. This luxury resort in the heart of the Algarve is situated only 2 KM from the Atlantic Ocean and is one of the most sought after property investment locations in Europe.

Vale do Lobo enjoys high rental demand throughout the year. Golf and tennis tourism account for some of this demand but luxury holiday tourism is particularly strong. Weekly rents of between 9,000 and 10,000 Euros during the summer season for a four bedroom villa in Vale do Lobo are not uncommon; as a buy-to-let investment resort Vale do Lobo is second to none.

As a result, there are today a number of professional villa management companies operating in Vale do Lobo. Property Management Services offered include bill payment, account management, villa security, property inspection, gardening and cleaning. With such services readily available, absentee landlords have little to worry about. The rise of the property management sector is perhaps, one of the reasons behind Vale do Lobo's popularity with lock-up-and-go buyers.

Vale do Lobo resort has a restrictive property development policy; only a few plots are released for development each year. This is partly due to the fact that Vale do Lobo borders the Ria Formosa Nature reserve but it is also a tactic used by the resort to help maintain strong property prices through sustained, unsatisfied demand. Little more than 1,500 luxury properties have been built on Vale do Lobo's 450 hectares since its inception in the early 60's. With such a low property density, Vale do Lobo has managed to maintain its exclusivity and reputation as an international, luxury lifestyle retreat. To service its residents, Vale do Lobo has developed an enviable infrastructure which includes a tennis academy, children’s entertainment, Michelin Star restaurants, business and conference facilities, fashion bars, championship golf courses, sports centres and medical facilities.

Villas for sale in Vale do Lobo are some of the most prestigious luxury properties in Europe. Well constructed and beautifully finished, all offer exceptional facilities that include large gardens, golf course views and swimming pools. Styles range from typical Portuguese to ultra-modern and the resort's gated community is secured by its own private security company and modern CCTV network.

Vale do Lobo - a History

Trust House Forte began the development of Vale do Lobo in 1962, shortly after the construction of the region's Faro Airport. Over the next few years, luxury villas, apartments and townhouses were constructed to an exceptionally high standard in harmony with the regional pine forests and sand dunes. Soon a lifestyle resort, like nothing that had ever been seen before in Portugal, began to evolve and in 1968 the Algarve's first 5 star resort was officially opened.

It was after Henry Cotton built Vale do Lobo's first golf course that Vale do Lobo became synonymous with golf tourism but it wasn't until the resort was bought by th Dutch investor Sander Van Gelder in 1977 that Vale do Lobo acquired its 2nd 18 hole golf course.

Over the next 3 decades Van Gelder developed the resort to its full potential, turning it in to a luxury lifestyle destination with a strong focus on sport and recreation infrastructure. Additional plots were gradually released for development with demand always exceeding availability. This had the effect of maintaining property prices and served to emphasize the resort's exclusivity. Perhaps this is one reason why many international celebrities and sports stars now own luxury property in Vale do Lobo.

Today Vale do Lobo has numerous World class sporting venues including tennis, lawn bowls, football and horse riding. The beach side Praça, with its high class restaurants and bars is a huge draw for residents and tourists and is widely considered to be one of the Algarve's best nightlife hot spots.

In 2006 Vale do Lobo was sold to a consortium of national and international investors backed by the state owned bank Caixa Geral de Depósitos. Vale do Lobo's new owners have continued to invest in the resort and as a result, property investment yields are undoubtedly amongst the highest in Europe.
