Hello Everyone!!


So glad to see there is such a great resource/community for Expats to Portugal.

I have applied and received my citizenship from my parents since they were born in Azores.  I also received citizenship for my daughter already however I'm waiting for my wife's citizenship from what I understand this process takes a while. 

I'm currently 40 years old and want to retire in Portugal by age 50 but I would like to purchase a home now that I would use for vacation and rent it to vacationers while I'm not there. 

Has anyone here done this and if so do you have any advice?  Are there good services to maintain the home while I'm not there? What is the easiest way to forward mail bills etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you

Hello Matthew. I don’t know all of the specifics you ask nor of companies that are reputable for management. I am of Portuguese heritage though and all of the Portuguese people I know of in the Central Valley of California who have homes in Portugual, assign a procuração either to a family member or an attorney to manage it
