The project, designed by architect Jacques Ferrier, is inspired by traditional Portuguese architecture with clean lines, bright rooms and private gardens and over 40 percent of all of the units in Uptown Vilamoura, which is an eight minute drive from the marina, have already been sold.

“Uptown intends to create a new hub in Vilamoura, a community that integrates large public spaces around the pool club and a commercial area with a market, services and restaurants,” said a statement from the master developers, Vilamoura World.

Prices for properties in Uptown Vilamoura start at €294,500.
