Manor style properties and panoramic views greet visitors to Goldra, a luxury gated community hidden in the wondrous Algarve region in Portugal. Sitting 250 metres above sea level, residents can look down on existing communities Quinta do Logo and Vale do Lobo but also look further to the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. With an air of exclusivity, Goldra is the perfect development for property buyers looking to be nestled within a Portuguese hilltop, watching the sun set on another fine Algarve evening.
Property in Goldra
From one bedroom apartments to six bedroom villas, there's a wealth of property in Goldra to accommodate all tastes. Furthermore the properties can be used for rental purposes or, if buyers are taken by Goldra's fabulous views and proximity to world-class golf courses, used as a permanent residence. With many of the homes built for year-round comfort, buyers may find their property has under floor heating for those brisk evenings while air-conditioning can help with the effects of the summer sun.
Villas in the area also host a variety of amenities; a wood-fired pizza oven would be ideal for residents wanting to cook outside while large terraces make relaxing on sun loungers a pleasure. Each property has its own charm but all come with the privacy levels buyers expect from a quaint, countryside development in the Algarve.
However Goldra's location to the airport, beach, railway station and golf course ensures residents are never far away from relaxation or adventure. For example Pinheiros Altos, with its luxury championship golf courses, is ideal for keen golfers wanting to visit luxury links while Praia de Quarteria ('Quarteria Beach') is a gorgeous long beach that runs almost interrupted all the way to Faro; perfect for soaking up the Portuguese sun or dipping your toes into the shimmering Atlantic Ocean.
What to do in Goldra
The prestigious development lays a stone's throw from the beach, just north of some of the Algarve's most beautiful villages and towns. It's a beautiful area made for brisk walks and hiking yet for an exhilarating tour of the area, visitors may want to head to Rooster Quad Tours, a quad biking business that offers a four-wheeled view of the Algarve. With bespoke ATV tours ranging from two hours to 2-3 days, riders of all experiences are able to traverse the scenic, diverse terrain of southern Portugal - all from the saddle of a high-powered quad bike.
A short walk west from Goldra lays Loulé, a traditional Portuguese market town featuring a vast selection of shops, banks, art galleries and pools. Loulé castle, built in the 13th/14th century, is a must visit as it exhibits the fine history of the Algarve while the main church, Igreja Matriz de São Clemente, is a classic example of Portugal's cultural heritage. It's a beautiful escape for residents looking for a taste of old Portugal.
Elsewhere, Faro is only a short distance away from Goldra while the airport's many links ensure residents can always jet away at their leisure. However with golden, sandy shores and sunshine for the vast majority of the year, why buy property anywhere else?
