Welcome to this website for the House Owners Association - Quinta do Paraiso, in Carvoeiro, Algarve, Portugal.

We are a not-for-profit Association, founded in the Netherlands in October 1981, and registered in Portugal since August 1992.

We provide a forum for the discussion of the common interests of the property Owners, and we are recognised by the incumbent Management as representing the Owners interests.  This recognition was formalised in a written Agreement signed in July 2010.  A further Agreement was signed in October 2013 concerning Central Facilities charges.

Specifically, we negotiate the annual "Management Contract", which provides a source of income for those Owners who wish to rent out their properties; and we have the right to audit the bookings received. (Words in italics are under review) 

At the same time, we also represent the interests of all other Owners, including residents, and those who prefer to let out their properties independently, or not to let.

Under Decree Law 39/2008 dated 7th March 2008, any property to be let requires individual registration (‘alojamento local’) with the local council (i.e. in Lagoa). In this new context, the House Owners Association has agreed with the incumbent Management of Quinta do Paraiso that it would be impractical to establish any 'constitutive title' for the resort. As a result, the relationships between individual Owners/the House Owners Association, and the incumbent Management of Quinta do Paraiso, are now entirely commercial.

Since 2009 we have been holding our Annual meetings at Quinta do Paraiso, usually at the end of March.  In 2009, 2010 and 2013 we also held Open meetings, and in 2015 we arranged a Social Lunch for all Owners, in conjunction with our Annual meetings.

The next Annual General Meeting is planned for Saturday afternoon, 17th March 2018 at Quinta do Paraiso.
