Deciding to invest in an overseas property isn’t easy but when an opportunity comes along to invest in an exclusive new community which is in an area of natural beauty next to a nature reserve, has some of the best beaches in the country and gives a guaranteed annual rental return – then it’s a no-brainer as to what you should do!

Such an opportunity has arisen – Comporta La Reserve, a new community located 3k from the beach, minutes away from Carvalhal town centre and just 1 hour and 20 minutes south of Lisbon. The new community, the first new-build properties of their kind, is raising the bar for construction and luxury in the region. It   includes 148 villas and apartments along with a hotel and will bring together a community among like-minded people looking to escape city life and enjoy the pearls that the surrounding nature has to offer.

Comporta is known for its rustic character. Its landscape is dotted with pines and cork trees, and the lifestyle here is reflective of its environment: laid back and outdoorsy. While the pace of life is much slower than that of a city’s, there are plenty of activities to get involved with including cycling, horse riding, yoga, snorkelling, diving, water skiing and golf on award-winning courses. The 8 beaches in the area also boast good waves for all levels of surfers and locals come here year round to paddle out to sea.

La Reserve consists of three different areas, the hotel, Fisherman’s Village, and Prestige Villas and properties will range from two to five bedroom apartments and villas in three main areas.

The hotel, which boasts a 600sqm swimming pool, spa, on-site restaurant, sports and baby club will host 56 3 bedroom apartments (64 sqm) which are set in multi­ple small buildings rather than a large tower block, in keeping with the traditional design of the area. They are ideal for couples and small families, but the apartments can be converted into a one-bed and studio for those wishing to rent out the property. All properties will have outdoor space either terraces or balconies.

The Fisherman’s Village will host 61 villas of two to four bedrooms with the option of joining two together to create a large villa. Some villas will have patio pools or rooftop pools. The Fisherman’s Village, will feature a small shop and a communal swimming pool for those without their own private swimming pools. Although cars are not allowed into the village or the hotel area, a car park is located just outside and golf buggies will be on hand to take owners to and from the properties. Carvalhal town centre is just a few minutes away with all local amenities to take advantage of.

Prestige villas of three to five bedrooms are the largest with 158-256 interior sqm and 1,000-2,000 sqm of outdoor space with pool, Jacuzzi and BBQ. Owners can buy an extra lot to add to their outdoor space.

All properties at La Réserve are also available to buy as leaseback options and use a hassle-free management service to be rented out. With this option, owners must buy additional furniture packages for hotel apartments and Fisherman’s Village villas and will receive between 2-5% guaranteed rental yields depending on the type of property. All charges bar the annual housing tax for these two types of property will be covered by the management company. Prestige Villas will be furnished by the owners themselves who also cover all charges, however, they receive 70% of the rental yields.

These properties represent an opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and get back to basics. The flexible options of freehold and leaseback attract different types of buyers and investors to create a diverse and exclusive community. With an increasing number of tourists coming here for holidays, and with new construction restrictions coming into place limiting building in future, these properties are expected to appreciate in capital in the coming years.
