Hello, we are new into this Forum and happy to have found it 😊. My wife and myself are moving to Portugal and are looking for a rental place at the Algarve with lease contract 6 month+ or better a year. Favourite place would be around Carvoeiro / Ferragudo (Lagoa) Area and West of Portimao & Alvor. But not limited to it, its just a preference. Preferable a Villa or nice apartment on top floors only, T2+ in a quite area, away from highways and not in city centres. Budget depends very much on what we get, would say Apartment (with sea view) up to 1.500€/month and Villa up to 3k/month. There is hardly anything to find on idealista. Thank you all

Hi, can’t help you as I don’t know the rental agencies but there are many smaller ones in those areas. There is certainly plenty to let but they do tend to be holiday lets. Maybe smaller local agents could help more. In Silves where we are buying there are at least two local estate agents that also do letting. 
So sorry no help really but great areas you are looking at, just wishing you good luck really.

@aspidistra thank you very much for your reply. Yes, we are in contact with some local agents that we met. I just was hopping to get more options here 🙂

Hello @olberto, We have a place in Sao Rafael Albufeira (2 bedroom/2 bath) that we recently bought 5 mins walking distance to the beach. It is on the second floor and in a quiet neighborhood. We were hoping to visit this holiday season and fully furnish it but unfortunately could not travel due to COVID surge. For details, pl. contact us.
