With 2.8 million inhabitants, Lisbon represents 37% of the country's GDP. Lisbon allows a true quality of life combining the cosmopolitan side and the nature. It combines indeed many assets:
 
 Perfect location
Lisbon is located along the west coast of the Iberian Peninsula at the mouth of the Tagus. It is considered a city of the world that has an important role in trade, finance, education, arts, entertainment, tourism, media and international trade. Due to its location, the Port of Lisbon plays a key role in Portugal's economy.
The city is very well served by transport and has good road infrastructures. In 20 minutes, you can get to the first beach or the first golf course. The region of Lisbon has 321 kms of coastline with large sandy beaches and where during summer the temperature of the water turns around 18ºC. In addition, there are 15 18-hole golf courses.
The area also has protected areas: Monsanto Forest, Natura 2000, national parks and nature reserves.
Lisbon is 2 hours by plane from Paris with very frequent daily air connections from several airlines (Air France, TAP, Easy Jet, Aigle Azur, Ryanair, Transavia, Vueling). Be aware that the Humberto Delgado international airport is in Lisbon itself, 15 minutes from downtown.
 
 An intense cultural life
 
The cultural life in Lisbon is rich and dynamic, but there is a real sweetness of life.
It is a unique, authentic, charming, and impressive city with a long history present in all areas of Lisbon. Walking is a real pleasure. The alleys, the squares, the watchtowers with magnificent views of the Tagus and the city give it a very particular identity.
Lisbon is a modern city in constant activity: many concerts, festivals, exhibitions, fairs and sporting events. It also houses numerous museums, libraries, cultural centers, theaters and cinemas. There are art shops and entertainment venues.
The French community is also very important, especially around the French Lycée Charles Lepierre in the district of Amoreiras. Many associations offer numerous activities to francophones and can help you during your first steps after your installation: UFE - Union of French from abroad, Les Framboètes, Lisbon Welcome and of course the French Embassy.
Know that a French Mass is celebrated every Sunday at 11 am at the Saint Louis Church of the French (rua das Portas de Santo Antão).
 
 Profitability by renting an apartment
 
Short-term tourist activity is very developed in Lisbon (4000 housing units), it is perfectly authorized but must be declared to the Town Hall (Camara Municipal), and knows no limitation today in contrast to Barcelona or Paris for exemple.
It is even one of the engines of renovation of the historic center of Lisbon because both Portuguese private investors and foreign buyers, French in particular, buy and renovate apartments or even small buildings, some to derive a rental yield, others To have a foothold in the center of Lisbon to enjoy it a fortnight a year between extended weekends and week of holidays and to rent it the rest of the time.
It is in this latter case to combine the useful with the pleasant, since the good if properly located and decorated will yield between 4 and 5% before taxes per year and should benefit from a potential of revalorization with the increase of Price of m² in the center of Lisbon, already noticeable from 2014.
There are a number of short-term rental agencies active in Lisbon that take care of all the management of this activity: promotion on their website, reservations, check in / check out, cleaning and routine maintenance of the apartment. They levy between 30 and 40% of overnight receipts but provide a complete service for foreign owners and the figure of return of 4 to 5% mentioned above is calculated after deducting the expenses of the agency.
To find out which neighborhoods and types of flats work best and how to arbitrate between price and quality of the apartment versus rental yield, you can contact us for a first general view of the market or for a specific study with our specialist partners
 
 A good opportunity to create your business

Moreover, the workforce is qualified, flexible, creative and multilingual. It is also one of the most competitive in the European Union: the average cost per hour is about half of what is practiced in Europe, minimum wage was early 2015 of € 505 per month.
Being the capital, this city offers a modern network of technological and communication infrastructures, numerous suppliers for all types of products and services of excellent quality, not forgetting that the main decision-makers in business development are there.
Lisbon also has a privileged relationship with the 7 countries that speak the same language, notably Angola, Brazil and Mozambique and therefore it is the ideal place for companies that want to export to these emerging markets with 250 million potential consumers. Similarly, Lisbon cultivates historic trade relations with markets in Latin America, the United States and Canada, the Arab world and the Maghreb region. Thus, thanks to its geostrategic position between Europe, Africa and America, Portugal is indeed an attractive country and an excellent base for the internationalization of companies.
