For many years, UK nationals wanting to retire to sunnier climes with a relaxing quality lifestyle have for many years chosen to move to Portugal. 
From the golf courses, beaches and restaurants in the Algarve to the vineyards and culture of Porto, Lisbon and the north, there is a villa and lifestyle to suit all. 
On top of that, UK nationals can benefit from the very favourable 'non-habitual residence' tax rules during their first ten years in Portugal.

About Portugal

'Wet or fine, the air of Portugal has a natural happiness in it and the people of the country should be as happy and prosperous as any people in the world.' - HG Wells

Portugal is the oldest nation state in Europe and the Portuguese Empire was the first global empire in history and the Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 effectively gave Portugal half of the 'new world' at that time. Its culture heritage is evident today with medieval castles and villages with cobblestone streets that fascinate all with even a passing interest in history. With year round sunshine, golden beaches, breathtaking views, almost 1000 kilometres of beautiful mainland coastline, and golf courses and restaurants to cater for every taste, Portugal offers a lifestyle in retirement second to none.
