A little about the TJ Herbert Co-Founder Of Vilamoura & Beyond

Originally from London TJ and his family moved to Lagos in the Western Algarve in February 2020 after spending many years here on family holidays.


As a boy his summers were spent in the Costa del Sol where his parents owned an apartment. It came as something of a shock when some 30 years ago they said they were going to Portugal to look for a new holiday home. “Back then no one really knew much about Portugal as a tourist destination – it was some way behind Spain! And further Lagos was nothing more than a small fishing town.




Living On The Algarve

30 years on Lagos has become a thriving and eclectic city with a state of the art marina. “its amazing to see how this little town has grown and flourished. We have a lot to thank Lagos for over the years and the positive impact its had on our lives”.


And this is something of the narrative for TJ – combining his love for Lagos and The Algarve with the keen interest he shares in the local property market Vilamoura and Beyond was born.


“For me its not just about matching the right property to the right buyer – its something much more personal than that. Buying a property here can be life changing. And playing a part in making that change happen is incredibly rewarding.”


Something of a serial entrepreneur TJ has had something of a colourful business life. Becoming a maritime lawyer, to founding and launching two FMCG brands to becoming an actor and filmmaker – which TJ still does to this day. “Moving to Portugal has allowed me to continue my love of filmmaking. There is a fantastic scene here and some of the major studios have realised that. The Algarve has over 300 days of sunshine – the light, landscape and sunsets are second to none. What’s not to love?”
