Loulé is the place to go for the international buyer who is seeking to enjoy a unique Portuguese experience. Most visitors and expat residents come to Algarve thinking of beach resorts, fabulous seafood and night entertainment. Although this town is only 12 km away from the beach, a very different type of visitor decides to look for a property for sale in Loulé town itself and settle here: what makes this town unique is its history, which is well preserved in its thirteenth century Old Town with Moorish influence or in its castle built by the Romans, and its numerous local markets displayed with a medieval style. You come to Loulé if you want to settle in a city where expats are not the prevalent species, but prefer instead to integrate in every-day life with the welcoming and kind local Portuguese people. If you decide to buy a house in Loulé, it is certain that you will enjoy daily treats of the best Portuguese gastronomy made with the best fresh local produce which can find in the Loule’s gipsy markets. But also the city hosts the largest market in the whole Algarve area, the Mercado Municipal, where the local sea delicacies come in daily from the ocean, and are as fresh as they can be.
A fun event which you will get to live if you decide to move to Loulé is the Brazilian styled carnival that is celebrated right before Easter. A great party with music, costumes and local dances takes place at this time of the year. Visitors from all over Portugal, Spain, and other countries travel just for this and will surely become a short term rental opportunity if you have decided to buy a property in Loulé. And if you want to get away from town life, Loulé’s coast also displays its fair amount of beaches. If you are looking for upscale properties, then you should definitely take a look at Loule’s “Golden Triangle”, located between Almancil, Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago. These are to notch golf resorts where you can enjoy your retirement or vacation months in a fabulous natural environment. Loulé is well connected to the rest of Europe via the nearby Faro airport.
