Portugal was just one of 12 countries and territories included on the UK Government’s green list of countries last month. The good news resulted in a massive surge British house hunters looking to buy a home there. The UK’s largest property site, Rightmove, found that there was a 37 percent increase in the number of house hunters contacting estate agents in Portugal.

The site compared the three weeks before Portugal was added to the green list with the three weeks after the country was confirmed to be on the green list.

The Algarve is one of the most popular areas to buy a property in the country.

The country’s southernmost region is known for its beautiful beaches, fishing villages and golf resorts.
