50 buyers every day can't be wrong

The Algarve daily news recently wrote "In 2022, 460+ homes were purchased every day in Portugal and just under 12% of these were bought by foreign buyers". I make that more than 50 buyers a day from outside Portugal.

In the same article they suggest an event that UK and Irish residents might be interested in. The Moving to Portugal Show in London

Or, if neither of the links above is for you...

hopefully the video which I hope displays for you above shows one property which is sure to suit one of those 50...

Financially more interesting. Definitely much prettier.

There is a lot of established property at Praia do Bom Sucesso,
mostly built around 15 years ago, which means that the location has
mostly mature gardens trees and lawns which always looks more
pleasing to the eye than the concrete jungles of newer resorts.


The Royal Obidos golf course is up and running. This makes the beach
at Praia do Bom Sucesso, (sometimes known as Foz Gronho) a
financially more interesting and definitely much prettier investment
location on the West Coast of Portugal than inland resorts like
the Bom Sucesso design resort which is few miles up the lagoon.

Solar Energy - lowers cost of luxury for Silver Coast property

Eco-House with solar energy and beach views on the Obidos Lagoon

Bom Sucesso front view courtyard solar panels

An example of environmentally friendly home heating. Plus a case study for how the recent Portuguese legislation in support of solar energy has lowered the cost of luxury living in this four bedroom property on the Bom Sucesso beach. Image right shows front view of the courtyard and solar panels June 2009 - click any property images to enlarge

When the house was purchased by the current owner in 2005 it was neither warm nor energy efficient. The water heating was by gas. The cooking was by gas and electric, and the space heating in the winter was by solid fuel fireplaces and a wood burning stove. Lovely as a summer home but the heating was not ideal for winter use. Image below taken Christmas 2008 - Beach view from the living room window.

Utility Costs now down to Zero. Toasty warm in the winter.

From: Maureen Campbell

Hello David, we have seen your advert and wonder if this house
is still on the market? Can you let us have some more info?

We are at present in S. America and hope to be in Portugal in
March / April of next year. I, realize my enquiries may seem a
bit premature - but we hope to put together a portfolio of
possibilities before we get there. Can you tell me the
constructed area of the villa.. the land area.. when it was
built? Is a floor plan available?

Does it have mains water, septic tank? Are there other villas
close by?

private villas at Bom Sucesso Beach for at least twenty years.
Most of these properties are owned by Portuguese as summer beach
homes, and some plots are held as long term investments. Those
with beach views being more highly prized come on to the market
