Combining work with leisure in the Algarve: the best of both worlds
While taking time to relax is an important part of a vacation, if not crucial, sometimes life gets in the way, and you may need to find room for work as well. Remote work is becoming an increasingly popular option for many people who prefer to work independently and enjoy the freedom of life – and Portugal consistently comes out on top as one of the best countries to work remotely from.
Portugal is the ideal location for you if you want to take advantage of the benefits of working from anywhere in the world as a remote worker, while still enjoying the beautiful weather and culture of the country. Combine it with 300 days of sunshine and warmth, beaches, and endless coastlines and you get the perfect destination: Algarve.
Due to its low cost of living, accessibility to the internet, and wide range of activities, remote working in the Algarve is an excellent option for freelancers and remote workers. It is interesting to note that Portugal was named the best country in the world for digital nomads in 2022.
Quinta dos Vales offers a wide array of different rental properties, which are also ideally suited for longer stays. The estate is located near dozens of award-winning beaches, golf courses, and numerous marinas and shopping centres. All this while still being able to enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside, and being integrated into a 50-hectare wine estate with extensive amenities and even a fibre-optic internet connection.
At Quinta dos Vales these modern comforts are contrasted with the rustic surroundings of vineyards, ancient olive trees, wildlife and open spaces. Not to mention the idyllic weather (over 300 days of sunshine per year), Mediterranean cuisine and incredible wines, what more could you wish for?
Enjoying the Algarve
The Algarve is the ideal location for remote workers seeking pleasant weather throughout the year. The region is well-known for its stunning ocean view and pleasant winter temperatures. Walk the sand-covered beaches of Albufeira, Lagos, and Faro and feel the sand between your toes before cooling off in the warm Mediterranean-Atlantic water. An Algarve vacation is all about enjoying life’s simple pleasures, so end the day on the harbour with succulent grilled sea bass and a glass of Portuguese wine.
You won’t have to worry about the language barrier because English is widely spoken by the locals in the Algarve, where many tourists are from the UK.
