You must be speaking of IL and others. However, it doesn't change the fact that southern Portugal has the mildest climate in Europe, offering lots of walking opportunities for those if us who are retired, great seafood, history, culture, etc. With the graying of Europe, there will be many seeking warmer climes and lower prices, and the prices are still higher in most of the rest of Europe. These features would tend to support prices, but you might be right that the prices climbed too quickly.
