In the municipality of Portimão, Alvor is a coastal area of great natural beauty and high landscape qualities.
The Urban design detail plan includes an urban area yet to be developed, near the village of Alvor and its laguna, as defined in the urban development zoning plan – ‘Plano de Urbanização da UP2 – Alto do Poço e Alvor’.
The Urban design detail plan details and adapts the regulations defined by the land use zoning plan, creating a high quality tourist resort in the planned urban area, combining an urban design layout with a urban land use program which includes a five star hotel and accommodation units (villas and townhouses) with sea views and wide open spaces, all maximizing the feasibility of the resort and providing an excellent urban layout.
