‘We’ll visit our new Algarve villa each month’
golf, the beach and local restaurants suit Paul Thompson and his family
A LOVE of golf and the beaches, sports and restaurants on offer in Vale do Lobo encouraged Paul and Fern Thompson and their children Lucy, 21, and Max, 18, to buy two homes there.
“We bought a house on the 10th hole of the Ocean Course in 2010 and renovated it,” says business owner Paul. “After a few years we sold it but soon found we missed the area. This May we bought a tired bungalow overlooking the Royal Course with plans to demolish it and build a modern villa.”
The family had already owned property in southern Spain but the Algarve beat everywhere else. “We plan to visit our new home around once a month and will also rent it, expecting to achieve 12 weeks rental each year.”
