My hubby and I are considering moving to Portugal and have several questions: We would like to make contact with British expats who are already retired and living in Portugal. We want to know about British pensions in Portugal; Health Services; cost of living and importantly, about buying a place to live there, for example a "good" area with facilities on hand but also easy to enjoy. Happy to give email address on request.
There are about 60 000 British people living in Portugal, so finding like-minded people who have made the move shouldn't be a problem. This guide to retiring in Portugal might answer some of your questions.
The cost of living in Portugal compares quite favourably with the UK. For more information, read our Cost of Living in Portugal guide.
Whereabouts in Portugal are you planning to settle? The Algarves is popular with retirees, but can be more expensive than other places. Why not read some experiences of other expats in Portugal to give you some ideas?
