The Viceroy Residences at Ombria Resort has picked up the ‘Best Sustainable Residential Project in Portugal’ award at the European Property Awards.

The award for a new category ‘Sustainable Residential Development’ was handed out during an award ceremony which took place in London on the 24 October.

The Viceroy Residences at Ombria Resort is a 65 apartment development with one and two bedrooms which is managed by Viceroy Hotels & Resorts and forms part of the resort in Loulé, Algarve and which is anchored by a 5-star hotel, the Viceroy at Ombria Resort.

Ranging between 70m2-173m2 of GIA, the apartments are totally furnished with fixtures, furniture and fittings of the same quality in the hotel.

The owners will have access to the hotel premises and services, including the use of concierge and property management and rental while the owner is not using the apartment.

The resort is located in the heart of a 150 hectare estate in the interior of the Algarve.

The European Property Awards are recognised globally as the biggest and most prestigious awards in the real estate sector. The ‘Sustainable Residential Development’ category presented for the first time this year reflects the importance of sustainability in the real estate sector, evaluating projects according to economic, environmental and social responsibility. The Ombria Resort won hands down with excellent practises in all three areas.
Julio Delgado, CEO of Ombria Resort says, “We are really pleased to have won this prestigious award and for leading the way in sustainable residential developments. Over the past decade we’ve seen a change in what potential buyers want. They are much more focused on sustainability and a respect for nature which is at the heart of what we do and it really is an honour to get this award which recognises our efforts.”
