Let’s Move To … Portugal Millions of people will have some wonderful and treasured memories of time spent on holiday in Portugal. Uncrowded sandy beaches, long sunny days, perhaps the world-famous golf resorts, the exotic food and drink, the music and dancing; a heady mix which, for many, is enough to warrant a return – if not just once then perhaps several.

However, if you do decide to invest in property overseas, a VPN is likely to be your friend. Indeed, if you want to catch up on all your favourite TV shows around Christmas, it could even be essential. What is a VPN?.
WINTER IS COMING… As the clocks go back and the nights draw in, the UK is probably already well-used to the idea that winter will soon be on us. But, as we normally associate them with sunshine, what about the places we all enjoy our holidays and where we dream one day we’ll have a place of our own? For example, we have property for sale in Spain, Greece, Turkey and Portugal which we all normally associate with long hot days, al fresco dining and balmy nights. But, as few of us rarely visit out of season, we don’t really imagine.
THE COMPLEX CHOICE BETWEEN TOWN & COUNTRY If you’re thinking of making that huge jump, buying a holiday home or starting a new life in the sun, once you start to look for property, the vast array of homes available is probably going to be a little overwhelming. Is it best to live in the countryside, in the town or in a ready-made expat community on a complex?
