Eve’s love affair with southern Portugal began in 2018, when she made her first solo trip to the region. She visited towns along the coast from west to east, and on the last day Tavira stole her heart. In 2019, she returned with her husband Mark to film their episode of House Hunters International. They now own a place in the Algarve, the perfect vacation home! More about Eve’s journey
