Sol Troia, Grandola, Portugal
Sol Troia not too long after the ’74 revolution when many of the wealthier Portuguese families for fear of their safety fled to foreign shores, this barren and abandoned parcel of land became the private “playground” for a number of the elite from Arab society. As the area became more popular, more and more parcels of land were sub-divided until it became what it is known as today, Sol Tróia Mar and Río Private Condominium.
Sol Tróia has always been a privileged area to own Portugal Property and over the years has blossomed into a private estate with mature gardens full of indigenous plants and shrubbery. Her pavements are lined with palm trees and her flowers portray all year round. Her gardens are kept in immaculate condition and her lakes provide an oasis in the sun.
Sol Tróia is situated at the centre of the Tróia peninsula and lies almost equally between Tróia Resort and Comporta. Approximately eighty percent of the condominium juxtaposes the Atlantic Ocean with the remainder on the Sado River and Estuary; thus divided by a single carriageway which runs the whole length of the peninsula.
The gated condominium has twenty four hour security and patrols, a small supermarket, a number of boutiques and a couple of cafes. Throughout the summer you are able to enjoy your lunch or dinner at the members club and take refreshments at the shore. Sol Tróia boasts some of the most beautiful beaches to be found anywhere in Portugal and her peninsula stretches approximately seventeen kilometers from north to south and from east to west is at some parts up to one and a half kilometers wide.
Troia is an idyllic location just off the coast of Setubal and is only a forty five minute drive from Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. She is also home to over one hundred different species of birds and is residence for a much loved pod of dolphins. Due to her incredible beauty and charm Tróia has become a privileged destination for the rich and famous and is the perfect place for that deserved relaxation or for those of us who enjoy any number of outdoor pursuits.
Troia now boasts a golf club and Championship Course, marina, three luxury hotels, tourist apartments and spas, and a casino which opened at the beginning of this year (2011). Throughout the seasons you may enjoy sea and river fishing, sailing, wind surfing, sun worship, kayaking, golf, sailing, running, cycling and stroll at your leisure many of her stunningly beautiful trails.
