DRUM ROLL, PLEASE! YOU GOT...
Your laid back personality is one of the things that makes you so charming! You have a positive perspective on life and you just want to live it to the fullest! Your spontaneity has led you to some great adventures and to some incredible places! People will most likely find you near or at a beach, soaking in the warm sunshine in delightful comfy sand and salty sea. Either that, or you are a big fan of water sports and you want to take in the sea as much as you can!
This is a no brainer! The Portuguese Coast calls for you!
If you are a sea sports enthusiast, then we must recommend the Silver Coast!
Known for its gigantic waves and surf scene, Nazaré has definitely earned the title of best spot to surf in Europe! Tourism here revolves pretty much around surfing and other water sports. Lately, it has been a hot spot for expats to either settle here for the sports (all year round!) or to retire, for this reason prices to rent or buy have been increasing but still not as high as other coastal towns.
Climate here is not hot and sunny all year round, so expect some fog and humidity. Although not much public transportation is available all the time, Nazaré has a very high walkability, so you might not even need the bus or a car.
Another popular seaside town is Peniche, a mini rocky peninsula. Located just an hour away from Lisbon, this town offers long beaches and a very active community of expats with one common interest: water sports! Surf, windsurf, bodyboarding and kite surfing.
Peniche is a low cost of life and that’s what has been attracting people to relocate there. All the perks of a beach life with little cost!
Other cities to consider include: Figueira da Foz, S. Martinho do Porto, Ericeira
If relaxing at a beach is more of your thing, Algarve is right up your alley!
Faro is Portugal’s southernmost city and it offers a laid back livability with a strong expat community who love the sunny weather and our amazing beaches. With lively open-air markets, abundant fresh seafood, reliable infrastructure and commodities easily accessible. Faro is undeniably a hot spot for foreigner investment and tourism alike so you can expect the highest prices here.
To avoid the Algarve busy lifestyle and high real estate prices, we recommend some Coastal Alentejo towns:
Setúbal can be a great option for those who want to live surrounded by nature and in a quieter city with an excellent quality of life. Surrounded by natural reserves and spectacular beaches, Setúbal offers a far more affordable lifestyle than Lisbon or Algarve, while benefiting from things that most attract expats to those cities.
Some other cities in the Setúbal district to consider: Sines, Sesimbra, Grândola, Alcácer do Sal
Beja is the biggest district in the country and it covers from the east border with Spain until the western coastal area. Odemira is a tiny and welcoming village on the banks of the Mira river with some affordable housing compared to Algarve or Lisbon.

Hello there! I'm Ana Caramujo
Catch you're Portuguese Dream with us
Savvy Cat came to be because I found the way the Portuguese Real Estate market operates extremely dysfunctional and figured I could do things in a way I think is fair and allows for a high standard of service quality for buyers.
OUR BUSINESS MODEL was designed to provide the best possible service to the buyer, and make sure our clients know exactly what they are getting into prior to purchase.
We have exclusivity with all our clients and will show our them everything, including off market deals we come across, with full transparency.
WHAT WE STAND FOR! Savvy Cat Realty values ethics and as a business we are very concerned with cultural and economic sustainability, our goal is to slow down gentrification by making sure foreign buyers make informed purchases that are not overpriced. We believe this helps both the new expats as they likely spend less plus have a much smoother relocation process with support from local business and the local community as it boosts the economy by bringing cash flow in a sustainable way.
Our Promise, is to help you achieve
... your plans of moving to Portugal!
We are with all our clients at every stage, from advice, planning, research, communication, everything you may need to smooth out your relocation to Portugal.
LOCAL PERSPECTIVE & INSIGHT Countrywide
Another thing that makes us stand out is that we work countrywide, allowing our clients to explore different locations without having to contact different agencies. If you have an ideal and not a location when it comes to property, we will likely be a great fit for your needs, as a big part of our service is to help our client find the best location for them (taking in consideration factors from lifestyle to budget and requirements). This works smoothly because Savvy Cat’s agents are not competing against each other, they are collaborating as a team in order to help our clients to the best of our ability.
TAILORED SERVICES FOR YOUR PERSONAL NEEDS
We provide a lot more service than typical real estate agencies: we support with the visas, renovations, licenses, construction, documentation, opening bank accounts, networking for professionals, we do tours, we do verifications, we work with off market properties, we do reports and much more. Of course in order to be committed to do all this my staff needs to be paid, independently of sale. The system we found for this to work is to have service packages that need to be purchased prior to the property transaction, as a big part of the service will be provided prior to purchase.
Savvy Cat Realty also has Lawyers on payroll and includes legal verification of real estate transactions and documentation as well as visa documentation and process (consultation time is limited by package, Golden Visa applications are not covered – but we do offer discounted rates with some lawyer partners).
