Well-mannered and easy-going, the Portuguese are sociable by nature and enjoy eating, drinking and having fun in large groups. They tend to use formal modes of address and possess an innate sense of politeness; a quality that is held in high regard at every level of Portuguese society.
As such, Portugal is a very friendly place to live. Because of the excellent year-round climate, life is, for the most part, lived outdoors. There are ample opportunities for a wide range of outdoor pursuits from golf to water sports and everything in between. Portugal is a great choice for family life because it is generally considered a safe area, full of activity and fun.
Communication links by air and road are excellent; Faro International Airport offers direct flights to all the world’s top destinations on a daily basis.
The cost of living is relatively low and, as such, offers superb value for money. For more information please view our Portugal Inside View.
