Buying property on the Lisbon Coast

The Lisbon Coastline, which runs along the River Tagus to the Atlantic Ocean, is home to not only the bustling capital city, but also numerous towns and villages that are popular destinations and each have their own amenities to offer.

Each area has its own stop along the train line, and from Belém onwards they each have their own individual beaches. These villages and towns are part of the affluent ‘Portuguese Riviera’, which is internationally recognised as a luxury destination to the west of Lisbon.

Portugal is also renowned for one of the most popular Golden Visa programs, so with the purchase of a property over the price of €500,000, you may be eligible for this scheme. Read our free guide to Golden Visas in Portugal for more information.

How much does property cost on the Lisbon Coast?

Property prices in Lisbon vary greatly, however a 1-bedroom apartment for €150,000 (less than your average property price in Lisbon) is possible in a picturesque village just 15 minutes on the train outside of Lisbon. Whilst Cascais is a hotspot for holiday homes, you can find villas for half of the price in towns with similar traditional Portuguese charm just 20 minutes on the train along the coast.
