InternationalLiving.com, the retire-overseas experts, is sending a lucky American (along with a friend or spouse) to Portugal in 2022 for a month—all expenses paid. And while International Living is a website geared toward retirees, anyone in the U.S. over the age of 21 can enter. Whether you want to bring a parent, or like to plan your retirement decades in advance, this opportunity will have you living immersed in Portugal and its culture. However, the deadline to enter is today (Monday, October 18) at midnight, so get moving if you’re interested in living in Portugal for 30 days.
So, where will you live in Portugal?
The lucky winner (along with their friend or spouse) will win a month’s stay in The Algarve, Portugal. The all expense paid trip includes round-trip airfare from the U.S. to Faro, furnished accommodation, plus a remuneration to cover living expenses. International Living did not specify how much the winner will receive for living expenses.
What is Algarve known for?
The seaside town of Algarve is known for soaring cliffs, caves and beaches, and bays and islands that draw millions of visitors every year, as well as American ex-pats and retirees. Surrounded on two sides by the Atlantic, it’s a haven for beach and ocean lovers. Algarve is also known for a huge vacation hot spot with resorts and nightlife along the beach. Grownups and younger travelers crowd the destination that’s treasured for lagoons and islands of the protected Parque Natural da Ria Formosa, west of the capital Faro to the fishing village of Cacela Velha.
Algarve is considered the best place to retire by Travel + Leisure magazine.
