Living in Portugal

Already thousands of incomers live in Portugal full-time, however the majority of those are based on the Algarve.

Adapting to the way of life in Central Portugal may take some time. Away from the big cities, life is slower paced. You may find things, such as paperwork, take longer to achieve when dealing with authorities. However the people are friendly and welcoming and have time to stand and chat.

Before coming to Portugal it is definitely an advantage to try learn a few words of the language, even if it's just enough to say hello to your neighbours or to order your lunch. You will have fun learning the language and this will help you feel at home quicker. The majority of the younger generation learnt English at school and are happy to practice their language skills.
