With the runaway optimism created by widespread Government social housing programmes and the hosting of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympics, Brazil is attracting an abundance of serious property investor attention but it is also a holiday home destination. The northeast coastline around Natal is proving popular with second home seekers, according to property specialists in the region uv10.
‘We have some of the world’s best beaches, average year round daily temperatures of 28ºC, excellent cuisine, a low cost of living and a lively, friendly atmosphere. Little wonder 96% of first time visitors vow to return,’ said Samantha Gore, sales manager at uv10.
Beachfront land is being sensitively developed by Europeans to luxurious standards with the added value of Spas, internationally branded hotels and a wide range of sporting facilities. ‘Prices are at their best now but on an upward trajectory, particularly as Natal’s new airport takes shape. With the current international airport at 110% capacity, its replacement is much needed and will become the largest airport in Latin America accepting five million passengers each year,’ explained Gore.
‘Flying time is just seven to nine hours from most of Western Europe. With free and clear title deed available to foreign property owners, Brazil is a strong holiday home contender,’ she added.
The latest addition to uv10’s portfolio is the exclusive La Réserve in Pipa Beach, a collection of nine detached boutique villas is in a green protected zone literally 275 paces from Pipa’s main town beaches and within strolling distance of a colourful array of shops, bars and restaurants.
They feature Italian design, natural stone, polished concrete, glass and wood and have a simple, pure white minimalist exterior walls and internal cloisters that generate a natural light source from within the villa like an indoor garden for a constant supply of refreshing air.
Prices start at €172,400 (£151,000) for 124 square meter interior built area with 60 square meters of terracing set on a private plot of between 185 and 225 square meters.
The price includes partial furnishing with top end kitchen appliances, high quality air conditioning, queen size beds and installation of the swimming pool.
Extra furnishings and fittings are payable by the client but the developer will help to select and install these free of charge. The development is close to completion apart from tailor made finishing touches and delivery is 45 days after 70% payment has been made, with the final 30% payable upon completion.
