Eastern Algarve, Portugal | Overseas Haven Report
In this Overseas Haven report we explore East Algarve.
Because of the huge increase in tourism in Portugal, standard popular areas are getting crowded and expensive. Hence, the attention on this part of Portugal’s world-famous Algarve region. European expats have been moving here in droves, especially the British, and now an increasing American influx is being felt. This means an active, English-speaking expat community to plug into along with the lower cost of living, great weather, and outdoor activities on offer.
Eastern Algarve is perfect for those with a love of nature and the outdoors. The warm weather and laid-back life near the sea harkens to a slower time spent with friends and family enjoying the sunshine and outdoors. The pace is yours and can be dialed up or down as you like. If you’re ready to savor moments in the sun… discover a healthier lifestyle and food… find a safe place with an emphasis on family and friends… live a first-world life at third-world prices… make a good investment with the benefit of an EU passport… and do it all without a language barrier to start… you’ll find many options await you in eastern Algarve.SKU: OHR-EASTERN-ALGARVE-PORTUGAL

Gozo is a steppingstone between North Africa and Southern Europe… Its first known inhabitants arrived in 5000 B.C., and since then, it’s been invaded by everyone from the Phoenicians to the Arabs, the French to the Brits.

Overseas Haven Reports, Slovenia
Ljubljana and Bled, Slovenia | Overseas Haven Report
Ljubljana may just be the most fascinating city you can’t pronounce. Walking the streets of this city’s historic center, you may mistake yourself for strolling the rues of Paris… or maybe the avenues of Prague… perhaps even the boulevards of Buenos Aires—Ljubljana is as cosmopolitan as any of them.
Yet Slovenia also offers outdoor adventures in spades: skiing, biking, hiking, golf, mineral spas, lakes for boating, vineyards for touring, caves for exploring, and even a few kilometers of beaches. If you value being able to hit the beach in summer and the slopes in winter, Slovenia provides the best of all worlds.
Slovenia’s natural charm is best experienced in the fairy tale lake and ski resort town of Bled, nestled in the Julian Alps only 20 minutes from Ljubljana. Each city benefits greatly by its proximity to the other; if you live in Ljubljana, Bled is an enchanting and easy escape, and if you live in Bled, you’ve got the capital and all it comes with right at your doorstep. From cosmopolitan historic capital to otherworldly mountain retreat, this report uncovers the irresistible magic of Slovenia.SKU: OHR-LJUBLJANA-BLED-SLOVENIA
