From cute lock up and leaves to roomy homes suited to family living, see our choice of apartments in the Algarve, at a variety of budgets.
The Algarve is a highly sought-after spot in southern Portugal. It promises the country’s warmest weather, an abundance of Blue Flag beaches, golf courses, stunning natural scenery, and the warm arms of an established expat community. Plus, the Faro international airport keeps the area (affordably) well-connected to the rest of Europe. Apartments are a popular choice with property hunters in the Algarve, especially as many pop up in prime locations by the sea or even on a golf course. We have selected some of our favourites from our property portal.
