Rocha Brava is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 42,000 investors across more than 30 locations. You can find out more about Rocha Brava below, but first a brief explanation about the Holiday Property Bond.

A. How can I holiday better?

Invest from £5,000 in the Holiday Property Bond for exclusive access to a portfolio of over 1,400 top quality villas, cottages and apartments in over 30 locations across the UK and Europe. For each £1 invested you will receive one Holiday Point each year which you can use to book the properties. And when staying in them you do not pay a commercial rent, just a no-profit user charge covering actual running, maintenance and refurbishment costs. This charge is level throughout the year so there are no high season premiums. For a studio for two the charge averages about £300 a week, for a two bedroom property sleeping up to six around £460 a week. And there are larger properties available. This no-profit user charge is only payable when you want to go on holiday. Your only ongoing commitment is a quarterly fee of around £30 – that is around £120 a year.

B. Will there be more properties in the future?

As we attract more investors the more properties we will add to the portfolio – increasing your holiday choice still further.

C. How long can I holiday with HPB?

For life if you wish – the holiday benefits last as long as you hold the Bond. In due course you can pass it and the holiday benefits to your children and grandchildren, as many of our earlier investors have already done. If, however, at some point you and your family no longer wish to holiday with us you can surrender your Bond back to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances). You will not get back the full amount you invested, although we would hope that you will have had some wonderful holidays. What you do get back will reflect initial charges (25%) taken before your money is invested in the HPB fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself also pays annual charges of around 2.5% and other overheads. The value of the fund’s properties and securities can also go up or down and so, like most investments, your capital is at risk.

More about Rocha Brava

Situated approximately three miles from the seaside town of Carvoeiro, in the centre of the Algarve, Rocha Brava is a large development of fine villas and apartments which benefit from a raft of facilities and amenities.

Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, and only 3km from the enchanting old fishing village of Praia do Carvoeiro, Rocha Brava is a haven of beauty and tranquillity. Here you can discover what the heart of the Algarve has to offer, including the numerous silver beaches that are close at hand and some of the best golf courses in the Algarve.

Nearby, the ancient Moorish capital of Silves boasts a fine historic castle. Further north, the Monchique mountains offer a panoramic view of the Algarve on a clear day.

Rocha Brava is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 41,000 investors ("Bondholders"). If you are not already a Bondholder and would like further details please see below.

Play golf on world-class courses

Golfers will be delighted at the choice of courses in the vicinity, as the Algarve is repeatedly named as the world's best golfing destination. Even if you've never picked up a 9-iron before, there are plenty of places you can learn to play the game too. Experienced golfers, meanwhile, will feel right at home on the many first-class Championship courses.

Have fun with the family

If you're bringing the kids along with you to Rocha Brava, there are plenty of fun family attractions to keep them happy. Slide & Splash is regarded as one of Europe's best water parks and it has rides to suit all ages. Zoomarine is another attraction popular with families. The kids will love the dolphin shows, pirate-themed performances and, of course, the waterpark. It's well worth a visit.

Hit the beaches

With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, you can't come to the Algarve without enjoying the incredibly clean and beautiful beaches. There's more than 200km of coastline to explore, so you're spoilt for choice. If you're looking for somewhere a little more private, there are plenty of coves here too.

Take a boat trip

One of the best ways to get to the top beaches and coves is by boat, so why not take a pleasure trip from Portimão? You can swim from the boat and go snorkelling or simply sunbathe on the deck. Keen fishers can take trips catering especially for them. Big game fishing trips are available for beginners and more experienced anglers – why not give it a go? You may end up bringing home some dinner.

Shop until you drop

The shopping centres in the Algarve aren't to be missed – though it would be hard to, as they're open every day until midnight! You can treat yourself, or friends and relatives back home, to a range of locally made products, including decorated tiles, pottery, crystal, jewellery, embroidered tablecloths and cork products. The local markets are worth a visit too; you'll find everything you could possibly want there, from cheap clothes to fresh fruit and vegetables.

Long-stay holidays

We offer concessionary long-stay holiday specials for those who wish to stay at Rocha Brava for more than a week. Please read our brochure or get in touch with us for more details.
