Lying in an elevated position immediately adjacent to the Onyria Palmares Beach & Golf Resort, the predominant sound at Alma Do Mar is that of the sea washing against the golden sands of Meia Praia beach just half a kilometre away.
The views from every plot are 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. The award-winning Lagos Marina lies a healthy walk or cycle away, with the vibrant city itself just beyond.
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 they have over two decades’ experience in providing luxury homes. They are consequently perfectly equipped to deliver high quality turnkey developments such as Ocean View.
The villas will quickly become homes in every sense. Not only will they have their original owner’s input into the design and specification but they will all benefit from a residential planning licence, which provides absolute legal title to the land. This means that each owner will be able to make their own arrangements with utility providers and there will not be any of the condominium service charges associated with developments that have only a touristic licence. Purchasers will also be able to take advantage of Portugal’s golden visa and non-habitual resident tax regime, recently introduced to attract new residents to Portugal.
Each of the twelve luxury villas will be designed by one of Portugal’s leading contemporary architects, Mario Martins. Our clients will be provided with every opportunity to work alongside Mario to influence the design and truly customise their dream home. Construction will be led and managed by us, and each client will be provided with both an English and Portuguese speaking project manager, who will arrange site visits and provide regular updates.
To provide the utmost privacy each villa will be single-storey with a large roof terrace and be set in individual plots of no less than 3000 m2. Construction areas will typically vary between 400 m2 and 560 m2. excluding basements and outside covered areas. Following approval by both the Municipal Council of Lagos and the regional authority, the detailed plan was passed into law on June 30th 2015. The construction of roads and utility connections will commence in early 2016 and will be closely followed by our first client’s homes.
We are not averse to selling some of the plots to those who wish to develop privately. However, to protect our vision for the development, any such sale will be subject to terms and conditions relating to design and completion.
