LUXURY apartments on Portland are to be rented out at prices of up to £1,500 a week before the Olympics. Top end self-catering property provider Blue Chip Vacations has agreed a deal with Comer Homes to market 50 apartments at its Ocean Views development in Castletown.
Prices include £594 a week for a two bed flat season and £1,500 in high season for a three floor penthouse with panoramic views.
Blue Chip said that it had already taken bookings for the coming months but was also aiming to capitalise on the such events as the Shooting World Cup in May, a Sail for Gold regatta in August and the growing popularity of the Jurassic Coast.
Philip Newnes, who is head of property portfolio at Blue Chip Vacations, said: “Ocean Views overlooks the Olympic course and some of the best sailing waters in Europe, making it a prime location for visitors, competitors and sailing fans looking to stay on Portland.
“We’re already experiencing strong booking levels for our available apartments and a great deal of interest from competitors planning ahead for the Olympics.
“It’s great to think that visitors, athletes and supporters can now stay in luxury on Portland enjoying grandstand views of competitions, the harbour and Chesil Beach.”
