Andre Jordan is the man who transformed Portugal's Algarve into the region as we know it today. His capacity for creating environments that actually change the way people live is unique. He has applied his own careful philosophy to all his developments and this book reveals the very special way he has exercised his civilising influence on the environment. Andre Jordan is far more than a property developer and international businessman. With his natural interest in people and instinct to enhance quaility of living, the development teams brought together by Andre Jordan were early to appreciate the need for property development in harmony with nature. He not only integrates the landscape with its resources, but also creates developments which are profitable.
