Meravista: The New Marketplace for Algarve Real Estate

Meravista LogoMeravista, a new property website that caters exclusively to people searching for property in the Algarve in Portugal, is set to launch, and it's doing things a little differently.

Meravista is a brand new property search portal focused exclusively on Algarve property in Portugal, from traditional farmhouses to contemporary villas. What makes the service stand out is its unique map-based search function, with the help of which users can zoom into specific areas of the Algarve to see the range of properties for sale there.

Meravista will soon be available to browse in a number of languages, including German, Dutch and Spanish.

Founder Anita van Huson explains: “We created Meravista because we saw that there was a large gap in the Algarve property market for a site that provided buyers with a simple way to search for property online.”

“Looking for the ideal home shouldn't be difficult! That's why we set up our innovative map-based search, which allows users to see more than just the property online. It lets you see the area in which your potential new home is located.”

Algarve Tourist Board supports Better Living in Portugal exhibition

AFPOPWith the new schemes by the country’s tourism agencies focussing more on expatriates, including the “Living in” initiative aimed at increasing foreign investment in the country, the regional tourist board Turismo do Algarve, recognising the importance of exhibitions as a way to interact and communicate with the region’s foreign resident and business communities, will be supporting afpop’s Better Living in Portugal exhibition (BLiP) for the first time in its thirteen year history.  Turismo do Algarve also intends to be at BLiP as an exhibitor to promote the work that it is doing to raise the profile of the region as a holiday destination and a place to live.

Turismo do Algarve will promote the exhibition through its website and Facebook page and also in the regional events guide, as well as providing space on its outside promotion stands throughout the Algarve and in the Tourist Information Bureaus.

afpop is delighted to welcome Turismo do Algarve to BLiP and looks forward to helping to support the initiatives being developed to encourage tourism and promote Portugal as a destination of choice for those who are seeking to relocate.

The Better Living in Portugal exhibition will be held in Portimão on the 5th and 6th October and more information can be found on or by visiting the afpop website and clicking on the link on the home page.


hotelverleichBei der Unterkunftssuche setzt jeder Urlauber andere Kriterien an. Der Eine sucht nur eine günstige Übernachtungsmöglichkeiten und ist viel am Strand unterwegs und der andere möchte mehr Entspannen und ein schönes Ambiente zum Lesen haben.
Businessreisende haben nochmal andere Anforderungen, die auch ein einfaches Arbeiten mit dem Laptop erlauben und absolute Nachtruhe garantieren.

Nutzen Sie die Hotelsuche von, denn hier ist die Besonderheit, dass Sie nicht nur die Hotelzimmerpreise miteinander vergleichen, sondern auch geografisch zugeordnete Privatzimmer entdecken, die oftmals vom Platzangebot und dem Ambiente im großen Gegensatz zu den Hotels stehen.
