Having a coliving experience in Portugal

A Coliving stay in Portugal means coming into contact with a multitude of leisure activities and a cultural heritage that harmonizes tradition and modernity.

Portugal is located in the extreme southwest of Europe and forms part, together with Spain, of the Iberian Peninsula. Portuguese geography is divided into 5 peninsular regions – Porto and Norte, Portugal Centro, Lisbon, Alentejo, Algarve – and the archipelagos of Madeira and Azores in the Atlantic Ocean.

Portugal has a population of approximately 10 million inhabitants, with the highest density rates in and around Lisbon, the capital. Porto, located in the north, is the second largest city in the country. In general, the towns located on the coast are more densely populated than those in the interior.

Getting to know the Portuguese language in depth or getting in touch with it through cultural exchange activities and language cafés is one of the possibilities offered by the Coliving programs in Portugal. It is the fifth most widely spoken language in the world and is spoken by almost 250 million people worldwide.

Portugal’s climate varies considerably from one region to another, subject mainly to the influence of the relief and the proximity to the sea. In the northern and central areas of Portugal, winters tend to be colder with moderate temperatures compared to the rest of Europe. Summers tend to be hot and dry.  On the coast the heat is moderated by the influence of the sea.

Coliving types in Portugal

Rural Coliving

These accommodations are located in areas that make it possible to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city, experiencing a slower pace of life. The Coliving are located in rural areas, many of them located between mountains and protected areas, where the connection developed with the environment and the community are the main points of the stay.

Rural coliving enables a connection with the local community in which it is located and with which it comes into contact through environmental actions and artistic, cultural and creative workshops and events.

The Aldeias do Xisto, located in the Central region of Portugal and which extend through the Lousã and Açor mountain ranges, up to the Serra da Estrela, stand out. Also the so-called Aldeias Históricas, located along the border.

Art and culture are an indispensable part of Coliving stays. Manueline art, azulejos and fado are authentic symbols of the Portuguese, as well as a contribution to World Heritage. Although with common characteristics and cultural manifestations, each region of Portugal has its own material heritage and local customs that shape its identity and that of its inhabitants.

The country’s gastronomy offers a very rich and varied variety of dishes, being one of the points to take into consideration when deciding to live a Coliving experience in Portugal.

Portuguese cuisine is strongly influenced by its coastline, highlighting the offer of fish and seafood prepared in different ways. As for meats and fruits and vegetables, the offer of each region stands out for its quality and flavor, many of them being products with Protected Designation of Origin (PDO). Among the many other products on offer, typical Portuguese desserts such as custard tarts and wines such as Port wine represent the country in places far beyond its borders.

 

Legal and practical aspects of Coliving in Portugal

When planning a Coliving stay in Portugal, it is essential to know the requirements for entering the country. As a remote worker in Portugal it is important to have information about the documentation required for this type of stay, as well as its particularities.

Digital Nomad Visa in Portugal

It is possible to obtain a residence permit and a temporary stay visa to work remotely for an entity based outside the national territory.

In order to obtain this type of visa, remote workers planning a medium-long term Coliving stay in Portugal must prove the employment relationship by means of a contract, as well as a document proving fiscal residence. In addition, they must also provide proof of average monthly income in the last 3 months.

The digital nomad visa is granted for a period of less than one year and is valid for multiple entries into the national territory. This type of visa is required only if the period of stay is longer than the tourist visa, which in most cases allows a stay of up to 180 days.
