Alfie Moon to Try His Hand at Cape Verde Property Development

11 August 2011

Better known for pulling pints and salvaging back-street boozers, Alfie Moon, AKA Shane Ritchie could soon become known on Cape Verde for developing property. No, he is not setting out to be the next Donald Trump, simply to have a nice home for he and his family to enjoy the Cape Verde sunshine. The actor recently revealed his intentions to buy land in the Archipelago.


Speaking to Hello Magazine, London born Ritchie explained his plans of going into partnership with his father-in-law to buy a plot of land in Cape Verde, on which to develop a family holiday home; somewhere to spend quality time with his wife and their 3 children, as well as his 2 kids to ex-wife Coleen Nolan. Richie joked about naming the property "Casa Moon".


Cape Verde property is once again gaining in popularity and exposure. The market was barely affected by the downturn, with demand hit hard but prices holding firm. And in recent months strong sales have been reported to foreign buyers, including the Tortuga Beach and Spa Resort on Sal Island, which recently opened 100% sold-out.
