Carvoeiro Gardens is a new option for a second home or permanent residence in Carvoeiro, Portugal.

Praia do Carvoeiro, once a quiet fishing village, has grown over the years, but unlike many resort towns, it has thankfully grown outwards rather than upwards. Most of the properties that have been developed around the “village”, as Carvoeiro is affectionately known, are standalone villas or clusters of townhouses.

Apart from a few apartment buildings around the town centre, property development around Carvoeiro can be characterised as low rise. This, coupled with the enduring charm of the bay and town centre, continue to make Carvoeiro one of the most sought-after locations in the Algarve for those looking to invest in a holiday or permanent residence.

The developers of the small Carvoeiro Gardens development identified a void in the real estate offerings in the area for homes providing comfortable year-round living conditions without the costs or concerns of owning a standalone villa with its own gardens and pool. An elevated site was chosen just to the east of Carvoeiro and within walking distance of the town centre for the construction of 17 detached villas in a gated garden community sharing the facilities of two swimming pools (one for adults only) and a putting green.

Located in the most desirable areas of Carvoeiro, close to Vale Centianes Beach, Carvoeiro Gardens is a 10- to 15-minute walk to the town centre. The development consists of 16 three-bedroom villas and one with five bedrooms, all designed with year-round living in mind, using high-quality and energy-efficient construction techniques. All of the villas have their own private garden and terrace areas whilst some offer ocean views from the upper floor.

The villas are priced from €499.500 to €629.500 (not including the furniture package). Owners have total flexibility of usage – for some buyers, a home here may be a lock-up-and-leave option, whilst others will choose to live here all year round. Owners wishing to earn a rental income are offered the option of a fixed annual return with limited usage or rental management based around the owner’s own usage requirements.
