any other country in the region.

Undervalued property market and among the most affordable in Europe. Portugal has one of the most favorable price-to-rent ratios (a measure of the profitability of owning a house) and price-to-income ratios (a measure of affordability) in the regions.

wine region in the world ( Douro Valley ), a diverse and beautiful landscape and FADO (traditional music awarded by UNESCO "intangible cultural heritage of humanity").

of coastline with spectacular views, all of them with blue flags (awarded by European Blue Flag Association). 

Best golf destination: also in the Algarve region, generally recognized as a top golf destination in continental Europe
and some would say in the world. In the Algarve, there are around 40 golf courses from a total of
approximately 80 golf courses distributed by Lisbon, Porto, Madeira & Azores.
