Upon the southern bank of the River Tagus, lies Alcochete. The town feels like a sanctuary, hidden from the city lifestyle, yet still with a clear view of Lisbon’s skyline. Alochete is within the vicinity of the Tagus Estuary Nature Reserve, a haven for bird watchers and wildlife lovers.
A short journey across the river will land you in the centre of Lisbon. Despite this, property prices here are very low, making it an appealing option for those on a budget and looking to live close to Lisbon. For expats looking to engage with a community of digital nomads, you’ll certainly need to journey into Lisbon itself. Alcochete is a Portuguese town, with very few tourists.
