Nestled in the westerly corner of Europe with hundreds of golden beaches that overlook the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal is one of the easiest to reach of our featured locations from the UK. With it's warm climate and people, easy access and natural charm, Portugal remains a firm favourite for property buyers. Moving to Portugal to live is often a long-held dream come true for the expats who live here – a life that is full of outdoor activities, fine foods and traditional values. Portugal is a modern country with a European lifestyle that can seem much more relaxed compare with the hustle and bustle of the UK.
A new American-based study out recently has once again elected Portugal’s Algarve as the best place in the world today to retire overseas. This conclusion was made by the Live and invest Overseas Index, which ranked the Algarve in top spot. To compile the list, specialists assessed popular retirement spots around the world using 12 different criteria, including expat communities, taxes, health care, entertainment and cost of living. Completing the top three spots are Valetta, in Malta, and Puerto Vallarta, in Mexico. According to research, which spans 211 pages, the index finds that ranging from health care to beaches, the Algarve has something for everyone. Researchers concluded that the region has got everything the would-be retiree could want: great weather and lots of sunshine year-round along with an established and welcoming expat community. The study also lists top-notch medical facilities and health care, an affordable cost of living, especially when considering the quality of life on offer, undervalued and bargain-priced property buys, including sea front properties coupled with “endless opportunities for fun, adventure, and enjoying rich, full, varied days out-of-doors.” Other advantages of settling in the Algarve included the fact that a great deal of English spoken thanks to the longstanding British presence, First World infrastructure, a new retiree residency programme that rolls out the welcome mat for foreign pensioners and easy access both from the United States and to and from all of Europe. The Live and Invest Overseas Annual Retire Overseas Index was compiled after months of on-the-ground research, with help from expats, experts, and correspondents. Researchers also claim the 2016 Index is the most comprehensive country-by-country comparison ever produced. Americans, in particular, are encouraged to look at the Algarve, with the study arguing that the strong dollar allows a retired couple to live comfortably on the Algarve coas
Most visitors arriving at busy Faro airport on Portugal’s ever-popular Algarve coast head west towards buzzy golf and beach resorts such as Vilamoura and Portimao. However head east and within forty minutes the Guadiana River forms a natural border between Spain and Portugal. This eastern Algarve offers a quieter, calmer alternative of red-roofed towns under shaded pines. “The eastern Algarve has historic towns and is more affordable than the west. Property is more expensive than in Spain but advantages of buying in Portugal include no inheritance tax and substantially lower buying costs. A good quality two-bedroom apartment in the eastern Algarve would be around €165,000 and a townhouse closer to €190,000.” If you opt to buy in Spain, cross the impressive Guadiana Bridge to the Costa de la Luz, a long windswept coast popular with Spaniards and windsurfers and backed by dense pine forests. Local treats include white prawns, pata negra - Serrano ham – and Condado region wines. “Costa de la Luz has always been Spain’s best kept secret. Yet Faro airport in Portugal is under one hour and Seville in Spain is 80 minutes from where the high speed train takes just over two hours to reach Madrid. This part of Spain still retains the charm of a laidback lifestyle with generations of local families meeting in town squares.” Immediately across the border in Spain, Isla Canela is on a 4,200-acre island with a nature reserve stocked with flamingos and eagles. The resort was established twenty years ago and has sold around 4000 properties to mainly Spanish, British and Scandinavian buyers. It has an 18-hole golf course, marina, hotels and shopping centres with completed apartments priced from €89,000.
