Investing in Portugal
The Portuguese government has developed a number of incentives for EU and non-EU residents that make both investing in and residing in Portugal incredibly attractive. This, alongside the wonderful year-round climate and excellent healthcare, makes the Algarve the ideal place to buy your new home.
Living in the Algarve is not only a fine financial investment, but more importantly a wise investment for your wellbeing.
Security and Healthcare
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has ranked the Portuguese health system 12th place in it’s most recent report. In Portugal, the official service for providing healthcare to the population is organized through a National Health Service. There is also a wide network of private health institutions, and the hospital network has long-standing links with major insurance companies.
Portuguese hospitals have begun to implement personalised patient care and monitoring services, designed entirely to make overseas patients more comfortable by using English as the language of communication. Lagos itself has a national and private hospital, all of which have English-speaking staff.
The Algarve, and in particular, Lagos enjoys relatively low levels of crime. A strong police presence, particularly in the summer months, ensures that the city and surrounding areas are kept safe at all hours, for individuals and groups of all ages.
