The Easter Heatwave

The Easter Heatwave

With Easter coming early this year, the Algarve has sprung into life much sooner than usual. Restaurants, Bars and Cafes have dusted down and given themselves a good lick of paint to welcome the expected record levels of visitors this year. With the early Easter has come another surprise, an early heatwave. To those of us that have lived here for many years, we’re used to the heat in the summer, but in the last week we’ve seen values in the high twenties (or mid eighties in old language), truly great if you’re taking a few days off on the beach or by the pool over the weekend.

As I write this, the exchange rate is also helping visitors enjoy more of the Algarvian Hospitality, in fact up to 20% better value against sterling last year. This has also had an effect on the local property market, with demand for mid priced properties increasing significantly month on month.

If you’re on the lookout for your perfect place in the sun, for a tax efficient investment or you’re thinking of taking life a little easier, why not take a look at our selection of property here in the Central Algarve? There’s still great opportunities to be had here, whatever your taste, style or budget.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
