A property website has highlighted Cape Verde as a prime location for investment.
David Stanley Redfern is currently offering a wide selection of prestigious apartments and villas in the Tortuga Beach Resort and Spa for as little as 140,950 euros, Easier Property reports.
The website is effusive in its praise of the archipelago, which it calls "breathtaking". It underlines the wide range of attractions that can be enjoyed amid the year-round sunshine -"from windsurfing and scuba diving to court sports and table-top pastimes
there's something for everyone!"
The buzzing vibe and attractions such as Sal's huge volcanic crater are also referenced - the same features which make the islands so attractive to tourists.
In the last six years, the archipelago has attracted around £500 million in foreign investment.
Tourism, banking and finance, real estate and construction have been the main beneficiaries.
And foreign investment is expected to reach £3.9 billion between 2007 and 2011, according to the CVI.
