London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 13, 2009 -- International Luxury Real Estate is pleased to announce the addition of the Aquapura villas to its select list of quality villas in Portugal.
Perched among an ancient landscape of vineyards and mountains in the north east of Portugal lies the Aquapura Douro Valley villas. Overlooking the Douro River, these completed luxurious villas offer the chance of owning whole or fractional ownership (25%) with an attractive investment potential and an unbeatable lifestyle.
The Aquapura way of life
These quality villas in Portugal are part of an estate, run as a boutique hotel which is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of The World. The Tatler Travel Guide just rated Aquapura as being one of the â101 best hotels in the worldâ. Villa owners can take advantage of a range of facilities such as a gourmet restaurant, Portugal's biggest Spa and a well-stocked wine cellar with some of the best red wines in the country.
The Aquapura villas [http://www.ilre.com/douro-valley-villas.html] range from 100sqm to 250sqm. The contemporary designed Villas do Douro are situated on the Douro river bank, overlooking the river and enjoy private terraces and plunge pools. Villas da Vinha, designed in a traditional style and surrounded by vineyards, have private gardens.
Travel to and from Aquapura Douro Valley is easy
For international travel, Oporto is one hour from the villas. The regional airport at Vila Real, a 15 minutes drive from the villas, has daily flights to Lisbon and getting there will take around 50 minutes. A private transfer service is available to offer convenient travel to and from the luxury villa in Portugal.
Whole or fractional ownership
The Aquapura villas are available for whole and fractional ownership. For fractional owners a guaranteed income of 6% NET offers an attractive investment opportunity that also comes with personal usage of 13 weeks during each year â these weeks can also be exchanged with other luxury properties around the world.
Alternatively the luxury Douro villas can be owned outright. Owners still have the choice of entering their property into the rental pool of the hotel.
Living in a splendid setting of a 19th century Manor
Aquapura villas are fully furnished and ready to move in to. Each residence is stunning in its design while embracing the historic aspect of living in a former quinta.
There is plenty to do and enjoy among the stunning landscape of this region - indulge in a game of tennis, a swim in the pool or even an occasional day at the business centre.
For the more relaxed, there is a high-class Spa, a library, bars, restaurants, a wine room and more.
If walls could talk
If walls could talk, it would be possible to hear the story of the Douro valley and the people who live among these mountains, gentle rolling vineyards and ancient forests. Villas do Douro are decorated with sophistication yet reflecting the ancient cultural aspects of Portugal.
Only the best is good enough and each villa is an entertainers dream. Bespoke bathrooms, wireless Internet and high-tech kitchens are only some of the features.
