A sunny country with diverse geographical features, Portugal is a popular destination for those dreaming of a new life. Its fascinating history and culture combined with its leisure facilities - in particular its golf courses - make it an ideal place in which to settle, whether your plan is to work or retire. The steady economic growth that Portugal is enjoying and the warm hospitality of the Portuguese people have also helped it to become a top destination.

Specifically it will tell you: how to get there and what to take, whether to buy or rent a home, where to work and how to organise your employment, how to set up your own business, how to deal with legal and financial issues, what education and health service provision there is, and how to live in the day-to-day.
