Yet another question from me. Thanks for answering.
I heard crime is becoming an increasing issue for retirees in the Algarve with gangs preying on elderly foreigners living in the Algarve (and likely to increase with increased austerity-induced recession and unemployment).
Has this become a serious issue for long-term residents of Tavira / The Algarve?
it 's true that the last years this happens,but mostly in houses located in a (little) isolated areas.
The police have recently caught several gangs but it is still a problem occasionally reported in the local media. Most of the criminals are illegal immigrants from Brazil or Eastern Europe.
Isolated properties in the countryside are most at risk.
