Buying a House in Portugal

Buying a House in Portugal (Buying a House - Vacation Work Pub)

Portugal is one of the most popular countries in Europe with those wanting to buy a second home, or start a new life, overseas. This is in part due to its welcoming climate around the year, which on its south coast is like that of the nearby Mediterranean and further north is warmed by the Gulf Stream. But the country has further attractions; although it is fast catching up with its more sophisticated European neighbours, it still manages to retain an unspoiled picturesque charm and a relaxed, easy-going way of life, especially further away from the bustling tourist developments of the Algarve.
