Whether you’re looking for a rural retreat, an apartment near the beach or a bolthole in the city, there are properties in Portugal for every budget.
How are you enjoying the British summer? Not great is it? With lack of sunshine proven to lower people’s mood, buying a holiday home in the sun makes all sorts of sense. The problem is that seaside hotspots can be pricey. On France’s Cote d’Azur, for example, apartments cost an average of £2,980 per square metre (psm). On Spain’s Costa del Sol, Marbella apartments are a little more affordable at £2,164 psm.
The winner, however, by a (golden) mile, is the Algarve, where you can buy hours and hours of sunshine per day with property at just £1,165psm. Prices are rising in Portugal (which makes a home in the country a solid investment), but it is still perfectly possible to find a desirable property without breaking the bank. Here are your starting budgets. Know more here…
