Known as the Algarve of the north, the Silver Coast is an alternative to those who still look for sun and sea.

Being a spectacular stretch of coastal ancient towns, what makes the Silver Coast so special are its cultural events, its unique picturesque scenery, and also the excellent healthcare and educational facilities; it also boasts a number of excellent courses and is becoming a major destination for thousands of tourists who come to enjoy the golfing.

So why are expats choosing to live in the Silver Coast?

Affordable Investments

Portugal’s living cost and the exceptional value of property prices are the main motivations why the expat community keeps growing here. 

The Coast became popular amongst foreign buyers in the late ‘90s, when the A8 roadway was built between Lisbon and Óbidos, which enabled easy access to the region.

My property advisor, Mathew McGurn, was truly excellent! His knowledge, professionalism and attention to details was much appreciated. He worked hard to not only find a property that fit all my requirements, he negotiated successfully with agents making sure my offer won over other buyers bidding for the same property. In addition, his communication skills, prompt response time and general help with my getting settled in Portugal went above and beyond the normal.
