About the area:
Almancil is both a town and a parish located in the Algarve region of southern Portugal. With a population of less than 10,000 the town of Almancil has retained much of its traditional charm and remains a quaint but desirable location to purchase property. Centrally located, Almancil is a short fifteen minute drive to Faro International Airport and is within easy access of all the major attractions and locations in the Algarve.
Considered one of the most highly sought after locations in the Algarve region, Almancil is a close third when it comes to the highest property values. The neighbouring areas of Quinta do Lobo and Vale do Lobo rank as the highest.
Originally a small market town, Almancil developed primarily as an alternative to the two top rated resort communities of Quinta and Vale do Lobo. Offering those residents a change of pace but still providing the high end merchandise and services they sought, Almancil is home to a wide variety of world class restaurants and stylish boutiques.
Just to the east of Almancil is a small village called São Lourenco that is home to an outstanding example of 18th century architecture in the main church. Covered with 300 year old ceramic tiles the inside is a pristine example of the local handicrafts and stellar craftsmanship. This town is also home to the São Lourenco Cultural Centre which is home to fascinating art exhibits as well as musical events.
With the golf courses at nearby Quinta do Lobo and Vale do Lago available as well as several additional courses, Almancil is a golf lover’s paradise. And of course the beaches in the parish of Almancil are simply stellar. With a variety of beaches to choose from, this area’s beaches are wide open expanses of fine sandy shoreline that stretch for miles in either direction.
Almancil is the perfect location for those who can afford exclusive living without being tied to a particular resort community. With such famous people as Madonna and Elton John rumoured to own property in this area, Almancil will retain its exclusivity for quite some time. This area is also in demand for luxurious high-end rental properties and purchasing property in Almancil with the intention to use it as a rental property can only be a wise investment.
