It is not always easy to find a long term villa or house rental here in the Algarve. In the summer months, normal homeowners go crazy and rent out for holliday lettings at some fairly substantial weekly prices, making the availability of long term villa rental almost nonexistant until autumn.
Yet people still need to move to the Algarve in the summer and not just for reasons of fun and holidays. So what to do? Sometimes it takes a little effort. Or sometimes, like here, it takes a site administrator to tap the Meravista.com database and present a nice little table showing the 23 most recent houses or townhomes listed for long term rent in th Algarve. Meravista.com has verified with each of the agencies that the homes are available and at the given price.
Several villas have pools which increases their cost. However the Algarve has over 200km of pristince coastline and every single one of these rentals is within 10-15 minutes of some beach, so you can rent your place in the sun at a more economical cost and still enjoy some 'amenities'.
With so many to choose from here you think you have time to weigh your options. In fact, you probably won't have much time. These long term rentals are the rarest of the rare and this list will probably be snatched up entirely within a couple of weeks. So make your inquiries now!
For those of you who arrived late. Do not give up hope. Simply go to our map page, select 'House', select 'Rent' and you will be on your way. Happy House Hunting!
