Reading the Portugal Buying Guide was absolutely crucial in preparing for buying our property in Portugal, especially as we’d never been to Portugal before! We knew the country offered a great way of life and had a good climate all year round, but waited until we had all the facts to plan everything carefully. We ended up buying our home in Portugal through one of the estate agents recommended by Portugal Property Guide, who were very helpful.

We know from long-standing relationships that they offer impartial, carefully considered help with buying in Portugal – and won’t just push you to a sale.

Finding your dream Portuguese property

If you’re trying to decide where to buy property in Portugal, it makes sense to spend some time becoming familiar with the country. There are many different landscapes and diverse attractions. It’s well worth putting some time into deciding what you need from your new location before you begin your property search.

When deciding where to buy property in Portugal, you’ll need to decide whether you are more interested in life by the sea, being in a popular and buzzy town, or hiding away in the countryside. It’s also a good idea to spend time in the different areas at different times of the year. This will give you a well-rounded view of what you will experience throughout the different seasons if you’re living there all year round. After all, both weather and atmosphere can vary dramatically, especially in areas popular with tourists.
