Experience the beach paradises of Troia and Melides. These regions are attracting exclusive investors with major real estate developments along the Alentejo coast.

Portugal is more than just Lisbon and Porto. It is a country of contrasts, with mountains and forests on one side and endless beaches on the other. It is a country with a rich cultural heritage and diverse landscapes. And it is here that you can find your paradise on earth. Whatever it is, Portugal has it.

If you have heard of Portugal, you have heard of Alentejo. And if you have heard of Alentejo and you like lying on the beach, Troia and Melides must already be part of your imagination.

An hour from Lisbon, Troía is a peninsula more than 25 kilometres long, washed by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the estuary of the Sado River on the other. It can be reached by ferry from Setúbal and offers many activities such as golf, boat trips, dolphin watching, restaurants with good Portuguese cuisine and terraces on the beach.

A 40-minute drive south is all it takes to reach Melides, already named one of the best holiday destinations of 2021 by Condé Nast Traveller. Here you'll find deserted beaches, the Melides lagoon that extends into the village, and a tranquilly even more serene than Troia.

What do these regions have in common? They are both attractive to investors who have discovered an unexplored Portugal. Whether it is the proximity to the sea, the tranquillity that does not exist in the cities, or the green mantle of nature that hovers over Grândola.

In recent years, a multitude of real estate projects have sprung up all along the coast of Grândola, seeking the new luxury: Exclusivity. In the last five years alone, 90 million euros have been invested in 57 new projects on the Alentejo coast.
