We know that many of our clients, especially those of you in the UK, are missing being here in the Algarve at the moment. It really is a huge injustice how the Algarve was excluded from the list of destinations deemed as safe to travel to for UK holidaymakers. We were painted with the same brush as Lisbon where the Covid infection rates are a little higher than the UK, and whilst exceptions were made for Madeira and The Azores, the Algarve with one of the lowest infection rates in Europe has been excluded, and very unfairly treated.
This Summer Exclusive Algarve Villas have some beautiful properties for sale in Central and Western Algarve regions.

When the pandemic hit Portugal and most of Europe back in March, many were expecting a total meltdown of the property market, especially as far as international buyers are concerned.
But as we write this in June, whenPortugal is slowly emerging from lockdown, the reality is quite different. Here at Fine & Country Algarve we kept very busy during the lockdown.
