Secret Investment Spot In Portugal’s Central Coast

Secret Investment Spot In Portugal’s Central Coast

Unspoilt beaches? Peace and quiet? Celebrity neighbours? Yes Please!

If you like the sound of being within easy reach of Lisbon but surrounded by pristine beaches and immersed in rural living, you might want to consider Comporta.
Located on the powdery beaches of the Troia Peninsula, Comporta is a sandy spit of land just an hour south of Lisbon, and marks the start of the rural Alentejo region.
 
Characterised by rolling hills, cork trees, farms, vineyards and enchanting towns and villages, Alentejo is off the radar and barely touched by tourists. It's simple seafood restaurants and empty beaches make it a haven for people looking to get away from it all – which could explain why it attracts the likes of Madonna, Man United manager Jose Mourinho and former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.  
 
Stretching into the Atlantic and half a mile at its widest, Comporta is a back to nature hideaway which treats the occasional tourist to dolphins, storks, soft sand beaches and a laid back boho vibe.
 
Investment potential
 
While a number of Iberian investors own plots of land in Comporta, the area remains relatively undeveloped.
 
Large areas of protected parkland should prevent overbuilding, and are likely to keep demand high when Comporta inevitably lands on the tourist map and begins piquing the interest of foreign investors.
 
So there you have it – the secret may be out, but prices are still low. In fact, figures reveal that Comporta is approximately two thirds more affordable than the Algarve!
 
Hidden gems on the south coast
 
While the West and Central Algarve are perennially popular hot spots for tourists and expats, head east from Faro and you’ll find a remote and undiscovered region where life marches to a different beat.
 
Away from the glamour of the golf courses and the buzz of the beachside promenades, the traditional towns and villages in the east offer a more tranquil take on Portuguese living. Emerging as rising stars in the property market, the sleepy fishing villages in this quiet corner of the country are speckled with white washed buildings, cobbled streets and brimming with old world charm.
 
The East Algarve may be worlds away from the vibrant West and prestigious Central districts of this spectacular coastline, but it is still the Algarve – and accordingly home to an abundance of quiet coves, empty beaches and secluded islands. Whether you spend your days bird spotting in the Ria Formosa National Park, exploring the region’s rich history or enjoying your favourite octopus dish, the east has so much to offer holidaymakers, expats and investors. Having been established right here on the Algarve for over a decade, we know the coast inside out at Ideal Homes Portugal and can show you all the hidden spots if you’d like to invest in property off the beaten track.
