Property for sale in the Algarve: Vale do Lobo
A mere 20 minute drive from Faro airport, Vale do Lobo is, like neighbouring Quinta do Lago, a beautiful, purpose-built resort aimed mainly at the golfing community. It has an ambience of luxury and exclusivity, enhanced by the gorgeous fresh scent of pine in the air. Much smaller, but no less spectacular than its equally prestigious neighbour, the curiously-named ‘Valley of the Wolf’ is a great example of how to manipulate beautiful natural surroundings without taking away anything that makes it so special.
A fully-functioning resort offering excellent sporting facilities, shopping, dining, entertainment and amenities, Vale do Lobo is also blessed with wonderful beaches that have frequently been voted as amongst the best in the whole of Europe. You will always find plenty of visitors sunbathing and swimming here, but the majority head to Vale do Lobo for the magnificent golfing facilities.
There are two internationally-renowned courses here in the Ocean Course and the Royal Golf Course. Just as Quinta do Lago has one particularly famous hole, so the Royal’s 16th is also legendary: from the tee, the aim is to carry the ball over not one, but two chasms in the cliffs below! We would imagine that a great many golf balls have found their way into those chasms!
Many overseas investors look at resorts such as Vale do Lobo with buying-to-rent in mind. Purchasing Algarve property for sale in what can be seen as ‘dedicated’ resort destinations – i.e. aiming, by their nature, to attract a particular kind of holidaymaker - is always going to be a wise investment. Considering that Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago enjoy virtually year-round sunshine, thereby allowing for year-round golf, it seems fairly certain that your property would be full most of the time, giving excellent ROI.
