EBD wrote: “With an enviable quality of life, the region attracts not only retirees from the UK, France, Germany and Italy, but also young workers, nomadic workers, who surf the Internet every day before surfing the Internet. .”

In São Brásde Alportel (São Brásde Alportel) is one of the recommended locations, “the hills are planted with orange trees and have spectacular sea views”. “If you like surfing or walking in nature, choose Aljezur and enjoy a higher price per square meter. For short stays of one to three months, Lagos is very active and fashionable.” Algarve is close to Lisbon, and many international schools are praised.
