PEOPLE seeking a secure lifestyle and a safe investment should take a look at an exciting new opportunity in the Western Algarve.

The International Retirement Club is a unique apartment complex being developed in Lagos, situated at the end of the main Avenida, facing the Marina.

The apartments aim to offer a complete, new way of life for its residents. The complex offers 24 hour resident medical support with a resident matron on call 24 hours everyday. This kind of service is not available anywhere else in the Algarve at this time.

The over 55’s community can receive primary health care and assistance on-site in the extensive facilities available. All apartments come equipped with emergency buttons and there is paramedic emergency response available at all times.

The complex is working in co-operation with the private hospital in Lagos (Hospital Privado São Gonçalo de Lagos) to ensure that all residents can receive the most reliable service possible whenever they need it.

In addition to the continuous medical support, the complex aims to enhance the life of the mature resident. The community offers huge social benefits in a positive location.

The stunning beaches of Meia Praia and Praia da Batata, as well as the proximity of the Marina and the old town mean that there is always plenty to do.

The clubhouse includes a comprehensive fitness centre with all the gentle healthy past times you might enjoy such as physiotherapy, yoga, pilates, gym-classes and hydrotherapy.

Hydrotherapy is one of the oldest forms of medical treatment, which involves the use of water for soothing pains and treating diseases. It is proving popular with older people as a gentler form of keeping fit, as well as providing effective treatment of arthritis and rheumatic diseases.

The complex also provides an opportunity to take part in communal activities and excursions all over the country. There is also the club-room, offering activities such as bridge, entertainment evenings, morning coffee on the patio and strolls in the garden with panoramic views of the Marina.

A complete shopping centre is also being developed on site as well as free, secure private basement parking.

According to Peter Weaver, director of the International Retirement Club, the multi-national retirement communities are soon to be prominent throughout the Algarve and the rest of the country. The peace of mind that the International Retirement Club offers enables residents to focus on enjoying their future lifestyle.

On top of all these benefits, the apartments offer a fantastic investment opportunity. Developers from Lagos Marina have released figures showing that over the past six years, prices for Marina apartments have increased by 107 per cent whereas apartments in the rest of the Algarve have shown a much smaller increase.

If you choose to buy now, by the time the apartments are ready in 2009 you will have already made a substantial gain from your original investment. Apart from the deposit, there is nothing to pay until you take occupation in two-and-a-half years time. There is also a long-term letting service and management for investors.

The on site sales office has a fully fitted show room displaying the layout of a prospective apartment. There is also a complete show flat on display in the Marina as the International Retirement Club apartments are being built by Neocivil, the same company that developed the marina. The two blocks of apartments house T1, T2, T3 or T4 properties, ranging in price from 194 – 437,000 euros, as well as monthly condominium costs.
