Win a 7-night holiday for 4 people in 2017 with James Villa Holidays @ Heart Radio

We've got a James Villas holiday up for grabs. Cyprus, Mallorca, Menorca, Lanzarote or the Algarve – the winner will get their pick of the bunch.

Every day from 10am, there'll be a new clue here to a mystery destination. You can enter up to 10 times as the clues mount up!
Entries close at 12 noon on Friday 13th January 2017

Q: AMAZING GOLF COURSES, MARINAS, LUSH SANDY BEACHES AND COVES ARE ALL AROUND THE COAST

My Guess: The Algarve

But tomorrow should bring another clue. Watch this space.

Note: it says you can enter up to 10 times but I am not convinced additional entries will be possible unless you have multiple browsers or are prepared to do some cookie removal. Tomorrow may reveal more info on that subject.

Please sign in/register, good luck!

Thanks Marba. Wasn't sure if the 10 clues meant there would be 10 different regions.

Note: I was able to submit another entry today but now I have done that I cannot enter again.
however I assume it will be possible to get another entry in each day until friday.
But if you have another browser or 2 you can get another entry in that way if you want to try to achieve the maximum of 10 allowed entries.
Otherwise, if you are savvy enough to be able to remove the win.heart.co.uk cookies from your browser storage you will also find you can enter again.

Thanks

I think there is only 1 mystery destination to identify. Every day at 10 they give an additional clue. There could only be a maximum of 7 clues based on the fact the t&c's give the comp a start date of the 7th(although the first time I saw this comp was on the 9th and I cannot find any evidence of earlier clues).

Cheers

Thank You

And the two earlier clues that I never saw which really leave no doubt as to the answer.

Clue:The area comes from the Arabic 'Al Gharb' meaning 'the west'

The Algarve (Portuguese pronunciation: [aɫˈɡaɾv(ɨ)], from Arabic: ‎‎ al-Gharb "the West")

----------------------

Clue: This destination is in the southernmost region of Portugal

en.wikipedia.org/wik…rve
The Algarve is the southernmost region of continental Portugal.
