Four reasons to invest in Portugal
First and most importantly: Portugal is an absolutely safe country. There is no political unrest and there are no risks as in other countries. Regardless of whoever is in political power, in Portugal everything remains calm.
The medical care is guaranteed. Everywhere there are established English medical practices and several private clinics with English-speaking personnel.
In almost any city in the Algarve, there is at least one pharmacy ("Farmácia") and most of them have English-speaking personnel. Drug prices are partly well below those in England.
For certain professional groups, there is the possibility to pay tax on all types of income from England in Portugal at a flat rate of 20%! And pensions are completely exempt from tax. For this, however, some requirements have to be fulfiled. Again, we have English-speaking tax consultants and lawyers.
The Algarve boasts a magnificent all year round climate, with over 3,000 hours sunshine a year and clear blue skies for most of the year!
Algarve weather averages 12 hours of sunshine a day in the summer and 6 hours in the winter.
Despite being on the Atlantic coast, the Algarve has a Mediterranean-like climate with mild winters and long, hot summers.In July and August the Algarve does benefit from light sea breezes which cool things down a little! Nightime temperatures rarely fall below 18°C and are normally still in the low 20's.
