Carvoeiro, Porches and Ferragudo are the parishs of Lagoa that clearly stand out as having a high quality of life for residents and visitors alike. The gold, sandy beaches, warm seawater and beautiful cliffs are undoubtedly the greeting card of a region that has known how to develop, but still maintains its environmental and urban qualities.
Although not immune to the strong building pressure felt all over the Algarve since the late 60s, Lagoa has managed to keep some of the rural characteristics on which its economy was based. Even to this date, some of the best wine produced in the Algarve comes from its vineyards.
Lagoa offers a diverse real estate market, which is in constant appreciation. It ranges from luxury villas and countryside properties to apartments. Carvoeiro and Ferragudo stand out when it comes to both location and what they have to offer. The former has developed around the beach that named it, while the latter, on the estuary of the river Arade, has an approved project for a marina, which will be a big attraction and development highlight.
When it comes to golf, Lagoa is a highly reputable destination, with its three courses, Gramacho, Pinta and Vale de Milho playing an important role in the Algarve tourist scene.
Quality of construction and competitive prices draw many to safely invest in their dream home, whether it is to live permanently or to enjoy relaxing holidays. With typical gastronomy and handicrafts, large cultural activities and unbeatable tranquillity, Lagoa is taking its place as a region with a past, but looking into the future.
