What is life like as an expat in your area?

Answer this Question

When we asked people living abroad what life is like in their areas and how people spend their time, they said...

"Life for expats and digital nomads in Portofino is often described as idyllic and relaxed. The small fishing village offers a tranquil environment with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea. The local community is welcoming and friendly, making it easy for newcomers to feel at home. The pace of life is slow, allowing expats and digital nomads to enjoy a balanced lifestyle. The village is known for its high-quality restaurants, offering a variety of delicious Italian cuisine. There are also plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, such as hiking, sailing, and exploring the beautiful coastline. Despite its small size, Portofino has a good infrastructure with reliable internet, making it suitable for remote work. However, the cost of living is quite high due to its popularity as a tourist destination and the high standard of living. The language barrier can be a challenge as English is not widely spoken outside of the tourism industry. Therefore, learning some basic Italian phrases can be beneficial. Overall, living in Portofino offers a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in Italian culture, enjoy a laid-back lifestyle, and work in one of the most beautiful settings in the world," wrote a member who made the move to Portofino, Italy.
