Where should I live in Lisbon, comming to stay for a year?« on: July 27 2006 05:07:00 »
I'm comming to the lisbon area for at least a year. If any one has time to answer a couple of questions i would really appreciate it.
I want to live in walking distance to a decent spot, where should i think of looking first, and how much should i expect to pay in rent?
I am trying to learn a bit of portuguese before i get there, but will communication be a problem with only a few of the basics under my belt?
What are the local surfers like, I here they are generally friendly if you give the same respect?
Many thanks in advance

I live on the coast of Lisbon and there are plenty of options but it all depends on what you like. In the winter Carcavelos is a good spot and in the summer Praia das Macas, Grande and Guincho are the best. In regards to rent, it depends very much on the area and the size. Communication is no problem as most Portuguese speak English and everyone is very friendly. Send me an e-mail if you need any more help and I will be happy to reply. Take care and talk to you soon
