What do I need to know about living in Cascais?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Cascais, they said:

"Cascais is a popular destination for expats looking to retire in Portugal. Before making the move, it is important to understand the cost of living in the area, the availability of healthcare and other services, and the local culture and customs. Expats should also research the local climate and the best time of year to visit. Additionally, it is important to understand the Portuguese language and the visa requirements for living in Portugal. Finally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local real estate market and the process of buying or renting a property in Cascais," remarked one expat who made the move to Cascais.

"After basic research using internet sites, so you understand the cost of living and ease of speaking English, spend time here--two weeks or so--before making any commitment. Renting for a few months or longer is most common and affords the flexibility to try other towns, as the life style varies quite a bit between city and village or rural life. This is not a dirt-streets beach town; it is historic, relaxed, casual yet chic," explained one expat living in Cascais, Portugal.
