Why choose Portugal as a retirement destination

Portugal is the third-safest country in the world. Boasting world class beaches, sumptuous cuisine and sunshine all year round, Portugal has long been sought after as an international travel, second home and retirement destination. As one of the cheapest countries in Europe to retire in, Portugal offers retirees the ability to enjoy an exceptional quality of life for significantly less than most other countries in continental Europe. As a generation of affluent investors are reaching retirement age, a group of astute Portuguese property developers have identified a bourgeoning international demand for top-end retirement properties, and luxury retirement villages with assisted living capabilities, in particular.

Why invest in luxury property in Comporta

Situated only 1 hour outside of Lisbon, Comporta is one of the most exclusive coastal destinations in Portugal. Offering unspoilt coastal splendor and a discrete community of well-heeled “swallows”, Comporta is synonymous with fine living in one of Portugal’s best-kept secret locations.

The town offers a low-key, understated level of sophistication that really resonates with discerning investors. It is the Portuguese go-to destination for the rich and famous from across the world, with the likes of Madonna, Christophe Sauvat, Christian Louboutin, Carla Bruni, Andrea Casiraghi and Nicolas Sarkozy spend their summers in this coastal locale. Properties in the areas tend to be exclusive, spacious one-off creations by the world’s top architectural talent, and the location is rightfully known as the Saint-Tropez of Portugal.

Comporta is skirted by the Sado River Nature Reserve, the Troia Peninsula and the vast Atlantic Ocean. The greater Comporta territory was acquired by the Espirito Santos, a dynastic family of bankers, in 1955. The area was expropriated during the Carnation Revolution of 1975, with the family eventually returning in 1991 to recover and develop the land. Conservation of the past became a key theme, as the Roman ruins from Europe’s first saltworks and the unblemished natural environment bear testimony to.

Comparta is undoubtedly one of Portugal’s investment destinations with the highest potential future growth, in addition to offering an unrivalled Mediterranean lifestyle.

Characterised by endless stretches of pristine beach, protected natural areas, rice paddies and quaint wooden cottages, Comporta is the embodiment of the slow life done right

With a permanent population of around only 4,000, Comporta is a place of hidden gems. Amble your way through boutique ceramic, linen and esparto shops, or graze your way through the bohemian gastronomic establishments for which the areas has become world famous.

Given its appeal as an inspiring natural canvas, it is no surprise that the world’s top architects and interior designers vie for projects in Comporta. Some of the most publicized designer properties in Comporta include Casas Na Areia, Casa do Pego, Villa L66, 3 Bicas Villa, Sublime Comporta, Cabanas no Rio and Casa da Comporta, to name but a few.

Additional recommended restaurant options in the area include Sal and the Cavalariça Restaurant, both of which offer some of the most sumptuous signature dishes in Comporta.

Why choose the Cork Tree Residences development

Situated on 30 hectares of pristine coastal property in ultra-exclusive Comporta, the Cork Tree Residences is setting new standards for luxury retirement villages in Portugal and the greater European Union. The project is breaking ground in October 2020, with the resort’s official launch slated for November 2022.
