Outward Bounds

Laura Henderson meets Alexandra Cesario of Kelya Premium Living to find out why Portugal is becoming a destination of choice for a brand new life in the sun.

From Lisbon to Porto, Portugal boasts some of Europe’s most picturesque cities replete with cobbled streets and intricate azulejo tiled murals. The country is also home to the Douro Valley, one of the world’s oldest wine producing regions, and the Algarve, full of beautiful beaches and countryside. In recent years there’s been a stirring in the air as more property buyers rediscover this fascinating country. For Alexandra Cesario, co-founder of Lisbon-based relocation and property investment consultancy Kleya Premium Living, there’s no doubt that Portugal is swiftly emerging as one of the top location choices for relocation, retirement and investment, not least with the advantage of attractive tax benefits.

Why is it said that Portugal can offer a great quality of life and more?

Portugal overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, a position that not only informs its temperate coastal climate, but also its mouth-watering cuisine and rich heritage. This winning combination of factors, together with tax incentives and an attractive residence programme, has drawn many foreigners looking for a better quality of life while protecting their wealth.

What about property investment opportunities?

Foreign-investment-friendly tax laws such as the Non Habitual Resident (NHR) programme, make a decade-long tax-free window possible – but only if you know how to navigate the paperwork. That’s where Kleya comes in. In addition to finding the right property, we take a hands-on approach in providing, in collaboration with reliable partners, the full gamut of services to help you make the most of your new home purchase in Portugal.
 
How can Kleya assist clients looking to Portugal as a place to live?

The company has positioned itself as the lighthouse perched on Portugal’s shores helping foreigners navigate their entry into the nation. Think of Kleya as your personal concierge: whether you’re in search of an idyllic space to spend your sunset years, an investment property or somewhere new to call home, our team of experts is here to help.
