Why move to Portugal
There are many reasons why so many foreigners decide to move to Portugal to improve their quality of life. As it is well known, Portugal is home to one of the best climates in Europe, and unlike many other countries on the continent, Portugal offers constantly clear skies and bright sunshine.
Another well-known reason for choosing Portugal as a residence destination is the rich, healthy and varied gastronomy on offer. The Mediterranean diet is one of the most exquisite and healthy in the world.
We cannot forget either the diversity that we can find in the country’s landscapes, from sun kissed beaches to snow-dusted mountain and verdant landscapes. Portugal offers a great variety of cultural and historical activities and, of course, a high quality of education.
