The Algarve has been ranked fifth best holiday destination for 2014 by a leading holiday rentals agency, which said the region’s unrivalled mix of natural beauty, hospitality, sun-kissed climate and fabulous beaches has cemented its favour as one of the Med’s foremost destinations for visitors from Britain and across Europe.
To help property-buyers looking for a lettable holiday home, the agency has highlighted three hot spots and property rentals in the Algarve.
