Real estate sectorThe urban development in this city was carved by the tourist industry, which confined the city to a wide variety of villas, homes and apartments for holidays. However its growing population and the several public services, has boosted the construction of several apartments for a more permanent living.
It is still possible to find the typical houses in different areas of the city, but the city skyline is definitely marked by the presence of high buildings, home to privileged apartments with breathtaking views.
Portimão doesn’t just offer apartments, surrounded by the hillsides of Monchique mountain range, there are several rustic homes, farms and villas, that possess incredible landscapes and are benefited by the ease of access and services that Portimão provides.
