Luxury Villas by Alma Do Mar

Alma Do Mar is one of the Algarve’s most exclusive developments of contemporary, luxury villas. Located a ten-minute drive from the vibrant cultural town of Lagos, the predominant sound that will greet our clients is that of the sea washing against the golden sands of Meia Praia beach. The award-winning Lagos marina is a healthy walk or cycle away, and the Europe-renowned Palmares golf course is next door.

The views from every plot are uninterrupted and outstanding, with the beach and the ocean in the foreground and the city of Lagos and Ponta da Piedade providing a stunning backdrop, especially at sunset.

Alma do Mar Luxury Villas is the prestige property brand of New Paradigm, which is a Portuguese company co-owned by British property developer Medcentres Plc. Together we have over two decades’ experience in providing luxury homes and are perfectly equipped to deliver high quality developments such as this. Each villa will enjoy a full residential planning permission, which means there will be no service charge. Owners will be able to contract directly with service providers and the roads and infrastructure will be adopted. In this respect our villas are a much better proposition than ostensibly similar villas on “Touristic” resorts.

We are determined to maintain the highest possible standards of contemporary architectural design at Meia Praia. As such, we are committed to preserving the relationship between the individual villas to both protect the uninterrupted views from each plot and ensure a homogeneous and fluent architectural language. For this reason, Mário Martins, one of Europe’s leading contemporary architects, will design each villa and take full design responsibility for the entire development. Additionally, we will nominate preferred builders whose construction quality and experience have been proven elsewhere.

For the benefit of our clients, it is important to us that the development is completed within a reasonable timescale and this forms a core part of our development philosophy.

Development Philosophy

Our philosophy is to provide our clients with a complete package through which to procure their perfect villa. We include within the plot price a complete architectural project by Mario Martins, a complete structural engineering project by Raiz Engenharia, and a full bilingual project management service, provided by ourselves.

We will guide you through the following process:

Month 1

Plot Reservation & Preliminary Design Phase

Month 2

Plot Purchased with Concept Design

Months 3-5

Design Refined & Engineered

Month 6

Design & Specification Finalised

Month 7-17

Construction Period

Month 18

Villa Handover

We estimate that the process will take approximately 18 months, outlined in detail here. Throughout, New Paradigm will act as our clients’ de facto agent and provide advice and assistance during all stages, including construction. We will make ourselves available to meet whenever required either in the UK, Portugal or beyond. Our sole aim is to provide our clients with an enjoyable experience and one in which they feel they have been fully in control, whilst retaining complete peace of mind.

For clients who are unable to invest the necessary time working with Mário and his team, New Paradigm can provide complete villas on a fixed price turnkey basis.
