Finding Portugal property
The easiest way to find property nowadays is by using the internet so if your looking to come to Portugal property can be located before you arrive to save time and trouble looking locally. It is also much easier to actually carry out the transaction with a minimum of delay nowadays, and many people are following the ex-pats example and moving to Portugal for some or all of the year.
In many parts of Portugal property can still be bought very cheaply, and with the increasing use of the internet for many people, allowing work from home, rather than from an office, an lot of people have taken this opportunity to move from their home country and live in Portugal all year round. Portugal as a place to retire to has attracted many people, not only for the more favourable weather but also for the unhurried way of life and the beauty of the countryside and coasts.
The beautiful Portuguese Republic is located to the west of the Iberian Peninsula. Bordering only Spain and the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal has miles of unspoilt coastline coupled with a unique culture and a rich history.
Portugal, meaning Ďbeautiful portí, consists of the mainland and two archipelagos in the Atlantic; the Azores and the Madeira Islands. Its extensive coastline, numerous ports and geographic location has long made the country synonymous with seafaring. Many of the greatest explorers were born in Portugal, and, throughout their lives, they extended the limits of the known world and conquered the peoples they found. The Portuguese Empire once stretched from Brazil to the Indies, with Portuguese the most widely spoken language in the world. Now these great seafarers are commemorated with the famous Belem Tower, built in 1514 to mark the spot where famous ships were anchored between voyages. Today Portugalís beaches and ports are transformed, offering relaxation, beachside bars and seafood restaurants. The long sandy beaches of the Algarve are world renowned, but all along the vast coastline there are opportunities to enjoy a whole host of water sports, from windsurfing to sailing, and scuba diving to swimming. These can all be enjoyed in crystal clear waters with a beautiful summer climate, with summer highs of up to 35įC., all of which may be enjoyed from one of our superb portugal properties for sale.
Inland, the empty landscapes of Portugal are filled with olive groves, vineyards, and fruit trees. Sleepy villages dot the hillsides, and beyond are vast national parks, filled with thick forests and an abundance of wildlife. The main river in Portugal is the Tagus, which splits the country in two. To the north are snow-capped mountains, punctuated with lush meadows and fields, while to the south are the gently rolling plains where locals tend their herds. The whole of Portugal has a sleepy, timeless charm where it is impossible not feel the relaxing pull of nature itself. To the north of Portugal lies the national park of Penada-Geres. Here eagles can be seen soaring high above mountain peaks with well-marked trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horse riding. The park is dotted with rivers and lakes suitable for swimming amongst breathtaking scenery, as well as facilities to hire canoes and other river craft. We have many properties in Portugal, both coastal and inland, from small townhouses to the largest villas and farmhouses with gardens, orchards and land.

Culture in Portugal
Due to the extensive historical trade routes from Portugal, the Portuguese culture is diverse. The country has both witnessed and embraced the constant flow of civilisations to its shores, taking the best of each and amalgamating them into its own, unique, culture. From the Romans to the Chinese, these many civilisations have left their artistic and architectural mark on the country. As would be expected, Portuguese cuisine is also extremely diverse, embracing many worldwide influences. Freshly caught seafoods are especially popular with the locals, with cod dishes a speciality.
