Palmares holes out with great course 

by Gazette Reporter

Sitting in a natural amphitheatre with spectacular sea views over the estuary of Alvor in Portugal’s Western Algarve, Palmares Ocean Living & Golf combines exceptional golfing and leisure facilities with homes from award-winning architects RCR Arquitectes.

37 new, signature apartments and one luxury villa are currently under construction at this luxury beach, ocean and golf destination, with completion due in Q1 2022. Further apartments and villas will follow later in 2022.

The low density of construction of Palmares, at just 5.7%, forges an exceptional harmony between residential accommodation, golf and the ocean. Strict construction parameters have been put in place to protect the sea views, including building implementation zones and height limits. This ensures that each villa or apartment has the opportunity to benefit individually from the stunning surroundings.

The residences are part of a masterplan of 460 homes (103 villas, 357 apartments), a second five-star hotel (complementing the existing boutique 20-room 5*hotel) and an array of sports and leisure facilities, including a pool and wellness facilities.
