I’m retired and looking for a new home in the sun. I want to free up my time and be independent in my activities - but I don’t want to be alone.

I think the above examples make for a good investment; I want to be an owner and to be able to use the cottage myself if I want to and also receive and income.

My parent is now alone and still very active but finds the winter months too cold and does not want to move into a home or sheltered accommodation.

I am an entrepreneur and I have a home in the East Algarve.  I have an activity based business and I want a platform from which to run my business.                 

Does one of these describe you??

We are building a *4* Hotel in the delightful Algarve countryside, yet only three hours drive from Gibraltar and Ten Minutes from Tavira. The Hotel is sponsored by the EU and as part of this scheme we are offering six two-room ground floor, charming Algarve cottages, which form part of our original complex.

● The cottages will be offered to guests, who are over 50, and on a 10 year contract bases, the cost of which is 120.000 Euros which is refunded in total if you are hospitalised or if you become dependent on medical supervision. You will have a choice of decoration and furniture, included in the lease package which includes use of the many facilities provided by the Hotel at greatly reduces rates, or in many cases “totally free”

● Your family will be able to come and stay in the *4*Hotel, to visit you, at preferential rates. If you go to the UK or elsewhere during the high season, we will let your cottage on your behalf.

● Our cottages and Hotel are being built with fitness and well-being in mind, with a wealth of art and craft packages included, from keep fit, dancing, art classes, bridge, etc. We will occupy you all day long if you decide to purchase one of our cottage packages; or if you just want to chill out and chat and make new friends, you can do that too. “You will never be lonely and help will always be on hand in an emergency”

● If you lease one of our six cottages and you wish to cancel your lease after two years due to unforeseen circumstances, we will refund your full 120.000 Euros, less a small administration fee. If you wish to transfer your lease to a friend or family member, within the 10 years, a small administration fee, will apply.

● What we are offering is not an elderly facility, “but a totally unique concept” “of well-being and craft orientated, caring facility”your home will be part of the Hotel, yet very slightly apart; you have a full use of all the hotels facilities, including three swimming pools. You will able to eat at the Bistro, 18 hours a day, at a very small cost, or if you wish to have a real treat, then you can eat in our *4* Restaurant.

The Bishop’s Retreat?

I am an artist & instructor in many art forms but I have been forced to retire. I am independent but I would prefer to immerse myself in an art & craft centred environment. I would like to have free use of art & craft studios where I could work and also teach others my skills and make a bit of money for myself.                   

You own a property that you occupy on your own.

You are an elderly person, active, but slightly afraid for the future?

You like the freedom of your own space, but you don't like the idea of being


You are comfortable but you would like to have a bit more money to spend.

You would welcome being amongst others in a similar situation.

You relish the idea of living in a place where the air is cleaner, the climate is the best in Europe and it is just two and a half hours from the UK.

More than Accommodation

Surround yourself with friends, yet have your own privacy and comfort

with help on hand 24 hours a day - 300 days of sunshine in the Algarve

I am unable to cook for myself but otherwise I am independent. I would like to live in a place with a lot of activities, physical and mental to keep myself active and alert and safe among friends!
