Madeira has long been popular with British and other international holidaymakers. It has winter warmth, stunning flora and countryside and plenty of flights from the UK. It’s a friendly island too, with a wide range of leisure facilities and a gorgeous capital city, yet all in a slightly more relaxed atmosphere than some Portuguese locations.

Portugal is a country of contrasts. Take the Algarve; a ten-minute drive can transport you from a rustic village to the glitz and glamour of a resort in the Golden Triangle.

When you’ve worked out your budget, Portugal has the homes.
