Alma Do Mar Luxury Villas
What sets our luxury villas apart is not just the stunning location, contemporary design and our development philosophy, it's our unique story and vision.
Several years ago, the owners of Medcentres PLC, one of the leading UK providers of healthcare facilities, identified a 35-acre site on which to develop a Health & Wellness resort in Lagos. During the negotiations to acquire this site an opportunity arose to purchase another parcel of land which was ideally located for the owners to build a family Villa. The land was situated in an elevated position just behind Meia Praia beach and adjacent to Palmares Golf and Beach resort. The only slight problem was that the land had an area of over 5 hectares which was too much even for a wonderful second home.
However, the opportunity was too good to miss. The owners therefore bought the land and applied to the council to split the land into 11 generous sized plots to enable others to enjoy the views and proximity to the beach and all the facilities that Lagos has to offer. Full planning permission was granted a couple of years ago and all the local infrastructures have now been completed.
Each plot has great views of the sea with Lagos just beyond. The beach, local restaurants and the Golf Club are all within a reasonable walking distance. The Marina and Lagos are but a short drive away and Faro airport can be reached within an hour.
The owners are very protective of the development and resolved to entrust the designs to one of Europe’s leading contemporary Architects, Mario Martins who is co-incidentally a native of Lagos. The fact that Mario will design all of the homes will ensure the integrity of the design language and protect the views of the individual homes. It can be strongly argued that the completed development will be the most prestigious of its kind in the Western Algarve.
The owners welcome interest from people who wish to establish a first or second home but equally discourage interest from passive investors. The owners also wish to see the development completed in good time to allow everyone to peacefully enjoy their new homes as quickly as possible.
Paths to Ownership
Since it’s conception, our clients have been offered two paths to ownership, and the owners are delighted that the development is nearing completion.
The first avenue has been to purchase one of our premium plots, of which only two remain. This has allowed clients to enjoy the unique opportunity of working with Mario and his team to design a villa of their dreams.
The second route offered was to purchase a turnkey project designed by Mario and built by our construction team, New Paradigm Construção. Clients then benefitted from a faster realisation of their villa, whilst also being able to enjoy the opportunity of making changes to architectural design elements and the final finishes. There are no turnkey projects left for sale.
