Where will my Algarve villa take me today?

If you think a villa in the Algarve is the typical sun, sea and sand holiday property, you’re in for a surprise, say Winkworth International. It really is the gateway to Portugal and beyond.

Whether you use your holiday home in the Algarve as a base to explore or you’re keen to add to your Portugal property portfolio, here’s our pick of places to discover.

Seville is just a two and a half hour drive from the Algarve. So you can be over the Spanish border in time for a tapas lunch or spend a holiday within a holiday exploring the city’s historic heart. Springtime in Seville takes in the April Fair (Feria de Abril), a fiesta of flamenco and bull-fighting, with a fairground and fireworks too.


You might know that a flight from Faro to Lisbon takes just forty five minutes. Did you also know you can fly from Lisbon to Marrakech in an hour and a half? So, you could wake up in the Algarve and be in the souk by sunset. Mixing downtime at your “home from home” villa with an exotic Morocco city break seems the perfect dual-destination holiday to us.

It’s impossible to tire of the beautiful beaches and eternal sunshine that make a villa in the Algarve the ultimate holiday escape. However, Portugal’s position at the crossroads of Europe and Africa gives your Algarve property purchase a whole new dimension.

Or enjoy city life by the sea in Lisbon - the possibilities are endless


Emerging property hotspot Lisbon attracts buyers across Europe and the USA looking to settle in a city with low property tax and living costs. Thanks to a flourishing start-up industry, business opportunities are increasing, while the beach lifestyle and foodie culture are always a draw. For these reasons, Lisbon is also a popular city-break destination with holiday let potential.

The appeal of buying property in Portugal is due to its affordability compared to other second home destinations in the sun. Despite its enduring popularity, you can purchase two properties in Portugal for the price of one property elsewhere if you buy wisely.

If you’re interested in investing in an Algarve villa and a city property in Lisbon, we’re open for business in both locations. However you plan to use your properties (maybe an Algarve holiday home and a Lisbon buy-to-let? Or a permanent home in Lisbon with a getaway in the Algarve?), the combinations are endless. We’re excited to share our experience so you achieve the most profitable investment.

Winkworth International’s villas for sale in Carvoeiro, Praia da Luz, Silves and other resorts across the Algarve take you further than you think. Our longevity of experience in the Portugal property market, combined with a forward-thinking approach to buying makes us a natural choice for international buyers. So if you’re looking for added value, get in touch with our Winkworth Portugal office.
