Balance is Best
The world at large has discovered Portugal as an appealing choice for relocation. This exodus to a golden utopia continues to gain momentum, despite recent discussions to amend aspects of the Golden Visa Programme. What has become increasingly evident is that Portugal is not merely being considered as a residency solution, or a gateway to the Schengan zone, but rather a top choice for permanent relocation. It is a smart choice for many reasons, as is the well-rounded Carcavelos neighbourhood. A possibility for a more balanced lifestyle that appeals to those looking to fully integrate and live here longterm.
Location, Location, Location
Central Lisbon has long been a popular choice for those who prefer urban hustle and centrality, yet for those who prefer a calmer pace of life, ocean-living, and green spaces, the regal Cascais ranks higher. Carcavelos, appeals to those who want the best of both worlds. It stands out as a location of considerable promise due to its proximity to both Lisbon and Cascais. This local family neighbourhood lies a mere 20minute commute away from Lisbon, along the much loved ‘marginal’ – the scenic coastal road that runs along the length of the sea promenade to Cascais.
About the Area
Carcavelos Beach is the first ocean beach after the Tagus estuary. Despite being a ‘city beach’ it produces world-class waves ideal for amateur and professional surfers alike. It has excellent transport links, and is easily accessible by train - offering daily commuters in and out of Lisbon an alternative to driving during peak hours.
Carcavelos is far from a 'sleepy surfer village'. Once a holiday town for Lisbon's royalty, it has now become a highly convenient neighbourhood for permanent residents; with established shopping centres, public leisure spaces, hospitals, clinics, hotels, villas and residential complexes that have helped elevate the area.
Where education is concerned, Carcavelos stands in a class of its own, particularly for those wanting international schooling options. St. Julian's School, for example, is an institution of longstanding reputation offering an IB curriculum. Carcavelos' Nova University Campus is also a very appealing choice for those considering higher education at post graduate level.
This presence of scenic beaches and parks alongside infrastructural improvements - a result of both private and public investment, demonstrates this blend perfectly. This is pure 'Quality of Life' - a term becoming synonymous with the Portuguese lifestyle.
