Loughborough Echo - - TV GUIDE -

The Al­garve coast of south­ern Por­tu­gal is fa­mous as a hang­out for celebri­ties, foot­ballers and re­al­ity stars in­clud­ing Binky Fel­stead from Made in Chelsea, Ant & Dec, Holly Wil­loughby and Jose Mour­inho.

And the places they all make a bee­line for are the re­gion’s two most fa­mous villa and golf re­sorts; Quinta do Lago where foot­baller Steven Ger­rard owns a villa, and Vil­am­oura, at which you’ll see Chris­tiano Ronaldo and Teddy Sher­ing­ham hang­ing out with friends and fam­ily.

Both re­sorts owe a lot of their suc­cess to An­dre Jor­dan, whose ef­forts to pro­mote Por­tu­gal as a hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion, and his abil­ity to at­tract the rich and fa­mous to his re­sorts have proved ex­tremely ef­fec­tive.

His latest project – de­spite be­ing well into his eight­ies – is Lis­bon Green Val­ley, a new de­vel­op­ment of town houses and apart­ments over­look­ing a ver­dant swathe of hill­side a 15-minute drive from Por­tu­gal’s cap­i­tal.

An­dre’s son Gil­berto, who is help­ing his fa­ther build the de­vel­op­ments’ 16 apart­ments and 14 town­houses, says sev­eral high-pro­file names have al­ready bought plots.

Lis­bon Green Val­ley of­fers plots within which stars – and the rest of us – can build prop­er­ties from scratch start­ing at $325,000 for the land. If you don’t want the ex­tra ex­pense of build­ing your own home, com­pleted apart­ments at Green Val­ley start at $325,000 for a one-bed on the bot­tom floor to €520,00 for a two-bed­room unit on the top floor. Town­houses kick off at €905,000 for a three-bed unit.
