Is the cost of living in Cascais high?

Live in Cascais? Answer this Question

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Cascais, they wrote:

"I think one could live quite well, everything included, for around $3000 per month, and if one were to budget a bit, probably even less than that," explained one expat living in Cascais.

"At this point, I'm thinking $1500-$2000 per month will be plenty. I'm still buying things for my apartment so don't have a really good sense of how much I will consistently spend," said another expat in Cascais.

"Everything is quite a bit cheaper here. Supplemental health insurance for example, via the local bank, is just 48 Euros per month! at age 70. Dentistry is much much cheaper and the care is superb. Medications cost a fraction of what they cost in the States. Food is cheaper, eating out is much cheaper - A good bottle of wine costs about $5. Publis transportation is very cheap for the over 65 crowd. We're pleased," added another person living in Cascais.

"It has met my expectations and I'm still amazed at the low cost of many things. But, there are other things that are more expensive than in the US," explained one expat living in Cascais.
