Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo – Memories of the 80s
“- I remember being a child in the early 80’s, being during the summer in the square of Vale do Lobo with my father’s clients and friends who offered me ice cream… I remember driving around with a mini moke (a simple convertible car of the time) in Vale do Lobo along Avenida do Mar and Estrada da Horta, to visit clients at their homes, who received us full of smiles and sympathy…
I remember Quinta do Lago when we were passing by the long André Jordan Avenue, and there were very few houses… Just a few buildings around the lake, famous people who went completely unnoticed…!
Today Quinta do Lago has grown, becoming a hub for quality investment, one of the best destinations in the world to play golf, sought after for its safety and high standard of services”
José Mora Feria
We are big defenders of a cleaner marketing. We curate our information in order to guarantee only more credible information, and we advertise the houses exclusively on our websites, without any disclosure in portals. We are outside the portals where property ads are mixed with other improperly cataloged ads, marred by excessive advertising pages, and other themes. To ensure that your properties are presented in the best way, we have customized the real estate software into a top brand, represented by a unique 4-letter international domain… SEAU.COM, easy to remember because it’s all about you, “SEA U” with the meaning of wanting to see YOU again. SEA, because we are close to the sea, we just want to be close to the ocean, and because it is close to the sea where investment is most profitable in a tourist destination like Portugal. U because it’s you we care about. We want to exceed your expectations, invested in a discreet, yet elegant and appealing way, in the best for you!
The SEAU logo, designed for You
Along with the “SEA U” brand, easy to memorize, we added the “Nautilus“, a shell that represents the first house created by nature, thousands of years ago, before the appearance of man… Training of Nautilus obeys the Golden Spiral, a mathematical formula created by Fibonacci (Leonardo Bonacci). This mathematical formula represents the golden ratio, used in various types of art, and present in nature in the most varied forms of perfection, from plants, animals, human beings, namely in the proportions of the members of the body.
SEAU, more than a real estate agency, we are the extra knowledge to find you the right house or boost your investment!
