Retirement in Portugal: The wonderland of the expat community!
Portugal is a paradise for expats looking to live abroad in their golden years.
Portugal is in the far west of Europe. Just one step from the rest of the world! Thus being the main entrance to the rest of the world. Its accessibility attracts retired people not only from Europe but also from America. For example, a direct flight from New York City to Lisbon takes under six hours.
The weather in Portugal is pleasantly mild and the sun reigns most of the year. The climate is often compared to southern California because it never reaches large temperature spikes. Neither cold nor heat.
The best of Portugal is that in such a small territory you can have access to a panoply of unique experiences within a couple hours of driving! Enjoy Algarve’s beautiful beaches, the tranquility of Alentejo’s plains, a night of fados in Lisbon, the spirituality of Fatima, the ski fields in Serra da Estrela, the history of the north of Portugal (where Portugal was born) and the forests from Geres. Food? That is amazing everywhere.
