The launch of Barra Prime marks another chapter in the career of
Tito Barra. With office located in Faro, Barra Prime offers a bespoke service in project management, real estate sales and property evaluation. It
also works with respected local lawyers, architects and interior designers and offers additional rental and property consultancy services.
As owner and director of Barra Prime, Tito has brought together a team
of young Portuguese real estate professionals who all live and work in
the Algarve’s ‘Golden Triangle’ – an area that encompasses the exclusive resorts of Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and nearby Vilamoura.
Their specialist skills, technical expertise and thorough knowledge of
the local market underpins Barra Prime’s commitment in providing
well-informed advice and the best possible solutions for its burgeoning clientele while fostering an informal, pro-active working relationship with each of them.
Quite simply, the aim of the company is to ease the process of buying,
selling, owning or renting a luxury residential property in Quinta do
Lago. Meeting the individual needs of a client is one of Barra Prime’s
great strengths. The company’s approach is relaxed and unhurried
and based on mutual trust. “This is our philosophy,” states Tito, who
adds that it’s vital to project a reliable and efficient image.
Barra Prime’s property portfolio illustrates its relationship with the very
top end of the Quinta do Lago real estate market. The villas listed in
this brochure represent some of the most sought-after in the area.
But Barra Prime also represents properties outside the ‘Golden Triangle’, near Estoi and Almancil for example, and lists a number of luxury
apartments as an alternative to larger, more expansive homes.
Property is a passion for Tito. Construction runs in the family. Fascinated at an early age by the building and assembly of infrastructure,
the planning involved, materials used and the teamwork required in
successfully creating a home, the young Tito was compelled to uphold
the family tradition.
Born in Faro, the regional capital, he first set foot in Quinta do Lago in
1986. It was a defining moment.
Visiting the resort with his parents, he was immediately captivated by
the verdant, meandering beauty of the pine-clad landscape and crystal blue lagoons of the Ria Formosa. Thus began an affinity with this
idyllic and unspoiled part of the world that has endured ever since.
Tito has worked in Quinta do Lago and its immediate vicinity for over 20
years. During that time he has been awarded a Masters Degree in Economics and Management at Lisbon’s prestigious Universidade Lusíada,
and more recently a degree in Property Valuation at ISEG-Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão, also based in the Portuguese capital.
It’s this wealth of experience and unbridled enthusiasm for homes and
houses that he brings to the fore at Barra Prime.
Tito’s reputation is based for the most part on personal recommendation. His clients tend to be friends of friends, and he acknowledges that
word of mouth is one of the best ways to advertise the market and the
area as a whole.
“People buy properties in Quinta do Lago to enjoy a particular way of
life. They want to play golf, explore the Ria Formosa or just relax with
family and friends. The air is clean and fresh and the Algarve hospitality is renowned.

The Algarve is Portugal’s southern-most province and one of
Europe’s most popular holiday destinations.
Blessed with a wonderfully agreeable climate and a stunning Atlantic coastline, this is a region full of character and contrast.
Renowned for its superb beaches, magnificent golf courses and
lively cosmopolitan resorts, the Algarve is also a land of unhurried
charm, where a more conventional way of life prevails.
A rich historical legacy is celebrated through a wealth of unique
visitor attractions. Nature, in all her rare and delicate beauty, can be
appreciated in the wide variety of wildlife found here.
Outdoor pursuits prevail. Water sport is popular, and discovering
the region by foot or on horseback is a favourite option. But playing
the fairways remains the most enticing and challenging pastime.
Drawing inspiration from the ocean and a proud seafaring tradition,
Algarve gastronomy is also flavoured by a countryside culture
unchanged for centuries.
Staying here can be quiet and secluded or vibrant and energetic.
But a relaxed atmosphere always prevails. And with Faro International Airport just two hours away from most European cities, this is
a destination waiting to be explored, waiting to be discovered.

Quinta do Lago. The very name speaks of a refined
elegance and discerning lifestyle.
This exclusive luxury residential and recreational estate occupies one of the most beautiful corners in the
Algarve, and its position overlooking the Ria Formosa
Natural Park and the Atlantic Ocean lend it a character
that is at once captivating and quite beguiling.
Quinta do Lago’s highly regarded architectural signature combines the traditional with the contemporary,
where homes of singular distinction blend into a verdant and carefully maintained landscape.
Five of the region’s most celebrated golf courses –
Quinta do Lago South, Quinta do Lago North, Laranjal,
Pinheiro Altos and San Lorenzo – lie within the estate.
At the heart of the resort is Quinta Shopping, a handsome mall of chic boutiques, upmarket cafés and fine
restaurants that draw a celebrity clientele.
The Natural Park is the preserve of an astonishing
variety of flora and fauna and this enchanting wetland habitat can be explored by following the resort’s
nature trails.
Quinta do Lago is the quintessential European destination for those seeking a fashionable retreat in
peaceful surroundings.

Vale do Lobo is one of the most established and recognised
luxury resorts in Portugal, and a preferred European golf
destination. Set over an undulating pine-clad landscape that
rolls gently down to the coast and a beautiful beach, the estate is hallmarked by a luxury residential real estate product
designed around two outstanding golf courses – The Royal
Course and Ocean Course. Most properties enjoy superb
frontline golf views, with the perspective further enhanced
by a shimmering Atlantic Ocean.
The resort is served by leisure and recreational facilities of
the highest order. Fashionable bars and cafés complement
restaurants truly international in flavour. Chic boutiques stock
the latest designer wear. And the largest tennis academy in
Portugal is situated here.
A diverse calendar of social events and special occasions
draws VIPs and celebrities from the worlds of sport and
entertainment but the resort also welcomes couples and
families, and children can take full advantage of a range of
activities in a safe and secure environment.
Lively and sophisticated but romantic too, Vale do Lobo remains a coveted year-round destination of singular appeal.
Synonymous with golf, Vilamoura also boasts the largest
marina facility in Portugal.
A luxury haven for sailing and watersports enthusiasts,
Vilamoura is firmly placed on the international yachting circuit and regularly hosts competitions, trials and regattas.
The resort is also renowned for its excellent golf courses, with
The Old Course, Victoria, Millennium, Laguna and Pinhal layouts numbering some of the most famous in the Algarve.
Vilamoura is set within a protected nature reserve and holds
numerous awards for its environmental initiatives, including
a European Blue Flag for water quality.
Its reputation as a first-class holiday destination is reflected
in the number of five-star hotel properties located in and
around the marina. The glamorous nightlife is among the
most animated and engaging in the region, and visitor attractions include the celebrated casino, which hosts regular
dance and musical shows. Lining the boardwalk is an eclectic choice of restaurants serving a delicious range of local
and international cuisine. Stylish bars and nightclubs attract a
young, fashionable crowd. The resort fronts a golden ribbon
of sand and the warm, shallow waters offer a fantastic range
of leisure and recreational activities.

Barra Prime delivers a first-rate project management service as part of its comprehensive product offer. Heading the company’s technical team is Portuguese civil engineer David Mendes. As a project manager, his responsibilities at Barra Prime
encompass every aspect of villa construction, from the initial meeting with the client to handover.
“The first thing I talk about with any client is the idea – what they want, and how they want it constructed. This is very
important.” A face-to-face meeting at this early stage is also designed to instil trust and confidence. Transparency and
synergy is vital if a successful working relationship is to be forged and the main goal is to work as a team to achieve the
best result possible. With the client rarely having the opportunity to visit the site personally during the construction phase,
David must be able to guarantee the project is completed on time, within budget and according to specifications. Legal
requirements must also be fully understood and adhered to. Barra Prime’s project manager speaks English, French and
Spanish, and the company can provide fluent Russian and German translation, too. Realistic budgets are fixed through a
dynamic programme of cost and control management, and progress is monitored on a daily basis.
“The next thing to establish is location,” says David. Naturally, plot size will determine build size. The client must then
indicate the style and character of the property required. “Once all this is achieved we can start translating the con-
cept into a reality.” As a rule, the building process takes anywhere between a year and eighteen months to complete.
The Quinta do Lago estate is now almost fully mature in terms of development. New build, especially in prime locations,
is rare. But there are alternatives. Existing villas can be refurbished or in some cases completely demolished to create a
new blueprint. “As far as infrastructure is concerned, nothing is impossible,” remarks David, who has 14 years’ experience as
a fully qualified civil engineer. “In fact, these days the trend is to demolish and build again from scratch.”
This option has its advantages, he points out. “Construction technology has advanced rapidly over the past twenty years
or so, especially with regards to energy efficiency and automation. So we can bring a property right up to date.”
In some cases, renovation is enough to realise a perfect balance between costs, improvement of comfort and clients’
Whatever is required, David and his team will provide professional advice and technical expertise throughout.
“It’s a challenging career with a lot of responsibility,” admits Barra Prime’s project manager. “You need patience and persistence. But most of all you need to be flexible. That is the key.”

This majestic home melds classic Mediterranean architecture and Old World charm with
European design influences. The interiors speak of impeccable taste and a cultured eye
for detail. The sumptuous lounge is replete with a set of beautiful French doors; a travatine carved fireplace provides a focal point. American red oak flooring with mahogany
inlay is used in the formal dining room over which a stunning glass table with gold inlay is
set. Lavish use of light wood cabinetry endows the large, fully equipped gourmet kitchen
with a delightfully transitional quality. Three double bedroom suites are also found on this
floor. A private library on the upper level is decorated with Brazilian cherry hardwood,
mahogany cabinetry and marble fireplace. The master suite is of presidential dimensions. A walk-through day room extends to a private breakfast terrace, and a gloriously
inviting double hydro tub defines the bathroom. The property sits in mature landscaped
gardens where a Jacuzzi surmounts one end of the heated swimming pool. Blissful panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Ria Formosa Natural Park can be admired from

suites over three levels, two of which are master suites. The master suite on the upper
floor opens on to an extended private terrace with its own outdoor gas fireplace and

The design of this charming one-storey property
is based on a series of inter-connecting rooms,
akin to a traditional Alentejo farmhouse. All overlook a central patio and fountain. Bougainvillea and other flowering plants add colour and
verve. A warm, rustic ambiance radiates from
the lounge, a quality enriched by the signature
fireplace set in a hearth of polished granite.
The adjoining library is remarkable for its expanse of natural wood shelving. The master bedroom features twin double beds and ensuite bath
and a shower room. A walk-in wardrobe is large
enough to be converted into a second shower
room if so desired. The second bedroom leads
to an office. On the other side of the courtyard is
a brightly decorated guest apartment. The villa’s
heart is the country-style kitchen – a robust and
professional cooking environment fully equipped
with state-of-the-art appliances and authentic
copper utensils that ably serves the dining room.

its enviable position affords inspiring fairway views and a real sense of privilege.
The architectural signature is contemporary with a character enriched by subtle
Portuguese and Mediterranean flourishes. Inside, the double-height entrance hall
showcases a spectacular brickwork ceiling mosaic – a truly impressive introduction.
The open plan living areas embrace beautifully crafted Italian furniture of a styled and
refined simplicity, a carefully studied distinction that’s carried through to the kitchen.
Here, elegance is blended with sophistication and the effect is sublime. Muted tones
and colour-coordinated fabrics fashion the ground floor bedroom suites and those
on the upper level. American cherry wood finishings in the bathrooms preserve the
sophisticated look. The master suite opens on to a private terrace where an enhanced
perspective of the greens can be appreciated. The exterior patio provides an excuse
for relaxing and entertaining in the sun: the barbecue sits under a sturdy pergola.
An emerald garden landscaped with sturdy umbrella pine and swaying palmeiras
provides pleasing contrast against the glossy blue wash of the swimming pool.

Villa Astradeus
Vale do lobo
From the elegant architecture, reflecting the class of the local build style, or the grand
gated entrance to the villa, to the lush sweeping lawn and majestic palms bordering
the pool, this property is a constant pleasure to the eye. The outdoor areas of Villa
Astradeus offer a series of scenarios in which to indulge in open-air living. Shady terraces spill out of the house, past tropical palms, towards the large swimming pool. The
front of the house, just metres from the spotless 8th green of the Vale do Lobo Ocean
Course, presents an inimitable series of curves, angles and archway. Strategically positioned and shaded terraces adjoining the main house extend the comfort from inside
to out. An impressive guest bungalow is joined to the main house by pathways.

V ilamoura
This impeccable, traditional villa lies at the
end of its own cul-de-sac making the location extremely quiet and secluded.
Upon this 8000 m2 private, sloping plot
sits the most magnificent 1958 m2 modern
manor house – certainly one of the largest
and most palatial residences in the Algarve.
International artist/craftsmen have been
specially commissioned to produce many
of the features which make this property
totally unique, from the numerous Tuscanstyle stone columns and balustrades to the
spectacular heavy wrought iron of the fencing and gates; from the glistening leaded
glass of the entrance doors to the elegantly
detailed Amazonian mahogany paneling
and shelving of the library and office.
It is difficult in these few words to convey
the magnificence with which the visitor is
surrounded, both inside and outside this remarkable home. A picture really is worth a
thousand words in this instance. Indeed, it
would be all too easy to exhaust the list of
superlatives needed.

V i l l a MOINHO
This outstanding residence is set in the countryside
and ensures absolute privacy and discretion for the
owner. The villa’s elevated position is rewarded with
360-degree views that take in the coast including
Ilha Deserta and the Santa Maria lighthouse, which
marks the southernmost point of continental Portugal. Inside, extended ceiling height, huge picture
windows and an open plan split-level interior create
a genuine sense of space. The dining area is set on
a raised terrace next door to a modern and dynamic
gourmet kitchen, with access to an outside dining
space. The lower level features ensuite bedrooms,
art gallery and cinema room, wine cellar, laundry
room and ample storage. The master suite on the
upper level has a shower room and Jacuzzi and two
dressing rooms. Outside, an old windmill has been
carefully refurbished and imaginatively integrated
into the architectural footprint. A custom designed
heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi adds dramatic
perspective to the expansive grounds that surround
the villa. A tennis court provides further recreational
opportunities, and a Helipad is available to receive
VIP guests.
Despite its relatively seclusion, the villa is just 12 minutes away by car from Faro airport and only 20 minutes from the golf courses at Quinta do Lago.
