Are you moving abroad?

Organizing a relocation is not something you should do on your own. At Portugal Homes, many of our employees are ex-pats themselves so we understand your needs when moving to Portugal, and offer you the essential information to help you move and live abroad easily.

If you’re moving to Portugal with your family, you will surely need to enroll your children in a good school. Within the Portuguese education system, there are options that fit every budget (public, private and international schools), however, if you plan to raise your kids in a multicultural setting, then international schools might be the best option. Also because of the unique challenges you face when moving to a new country, you may want to enroll your kids in a school that teaches them in your native language but also enables them to learn Portuguese.
