Portugal, one of the best places to live

Imagine living in a country where you can find a huge diversity of landscapes and environments in a small area: sandy beaches as far as the eye can see, golden plains and mountains, vibrant and cosmopolitan cities and a millennial heritage.

Imagine that this country has a nice weather, welcoming and friendly people, a low cost of living, a democratic parliamentary regime with political stability, public health service, high quality public education systems and safety.

…stop imagining!
this is Portugal…
Can you picture yourself living here?

The North of Portugal

ForestWISE headquarters are located in the north of Portugal, in Vila real (please see “Living in Vila Real“).

The North of Portugal is dramatic and unspoilt, with fascinating medieval villages, historic castles and spectacular mountain ranges. As an example, in 2015 TripAdvisor chose the city of Porto as the best emerging destination in Europe and the third best in the world.

Indeed, northern cities like Bragança, Vila Real, Guimarães, Braga and Viana do Castelo perfectly balance quality of life, lifestyle and modernity.
