PORTUGAL

Portugal is a country with almost 900 years of rich history and a future full of much more to come. Come and build your history with us.

With a coastline of over 800 km of the most popular beaches in Europe and a mild climate all year round, Portugal is a country that is not limited to the coastline. In fact, in winter you can also enjoy ski resorts in Serra da Estrela. Walk through castles, palaces and monasteries, get to know the natural parks and protected landscapes and, above all, enjoy the rich gastronomy that extends from the simplest starters of bread made in a wood oven with olive oil, to the most complex desserts. All this well accompanied by the best wines.

These attractions are assets for those who want to spend a nice holiday, but those who come to stay will end up getting to know better the Portuguese people, friendly, available and affable. If you don’t speak the language, apart from the fact that many Portuguese can speak English, there will always be a way to understand each other.

The infrastructures are are among the best in Europe, especially in terms of road access. Even the Francisco Sá Carneiro airport (Porto) has already received several awards. Public education and health care are on a par with the European average, which is also an attraction for those wishing to settle in the country.
