6 Reasons To Fall In Love With Portugal

Maybe it was love at first sight, or maybe it was a slow burning passion that developed over time. All you know is, you’re crazy about Portugal, and eager to see where the relationship could lead...
But how do you know it’s the right one and the right time? Here are six signs you should take your relationship with Portugal to the next level. 
 
1. You can’t stop thinking about it – The beaches! The climate! The wine! The desserts! The immediate quality of life improvement! The golf! With so much to offer, and friendly locals to boot, it’s little wonder you’ve got Portugal on the brain.
 
2. You name drop it all the time – If all your sentences start with “When I was in Portugal” or “When I go back to Portugal” it’s probably time to kick things up a notch.
 
3. You’ve told your friends about it – You might even have introduced it to your parents.
 
4. You feel 100% yourself around it – It might be the sea breeze, the warmth of the sun on your face or that divine after-dinner port, it suits you and you just feel completely at ease in Portugal.
 
5. You think about it when you’re on holiday somewhere else – Sipping sangria in Spain? Cycling along the canals in Holland? They're all lovely, but it’s just not the same.
 
6. You catch yourself making future plans with it – You regularly daydream about being in a committed, long-lasting relationship. Waking up to a warm sun, a lower cost of living, peace and calm with a side of adventrue, and many, many beautiful meals together. Oh, you could definitely do this long-term…
 
So how do you take things to the next level?
Taking a big step forward can seem scary, but don’t be shy – the reward will far outweigh any concerns that initially held you back! Here’s a five point plan to get things moving in the right direction.
 
Spend time in each others company – Take regular holidays to Portugal to find an area you love.
 
Go on a trip together – Go on an express or extended property viewing trip and see how you feel together.
 
Have a heart to heart – Ask all the questions you need to clarify any concerns on mortgages, tax, legal and rentals in case you're thinking of working together.
 
Decide if this is the 'one' – Breathe. Check the market again, if you need to, and decide. 
 
Say, Yes, I wil! – Put a promise on your dreamy property, stroll on over to the notary, sign and get your key ring ready! 
 
Congratulations, that's all you need to do, we can now pronounce you an overseas homeowner!
