    Accomodation in Portugal: How to go about it

    Expats in Portugal also find it easy to settle in: over eight in ten (82%) feel largely at home in the local culture compared to a global average of six in ten.

    The average monthly living costs in Portugal range from $1100-1300 USD a month. This includes a flat in the city centre, utilities, transportation, food and grocery costs.

    It is important to state here that Expats may find some aspects of Portuguese culture frustrating, such as the slow pace of life. Locals are not generally in a hurry to resolve issues or deal with problems, and this can slow down bureaucratic processes considerably.

    Housing in Portugal is exceptionally affordable. Small apartments in the interior of the country sometimes rent for less than $400 a month (though typical prices come closer to $500 or $600.) However, a similar-sized home in a trendy Lisbon neighborhood could easily cost four times as much.

    A selection of some of the best places to live and work in Portugal for expats according to the criteria of Nomad List include Lisbon, Braga, Funchal (Madeira), Ponta Delgada (the Azores), Portimão.

    Here is a list of some of the best websites to search for apartments or rooms for rent:

    – Custo Justo (in Portuguese only)

    – Expatriates.

    – Idealista.

    – Immovirtual.
