Oeiras sits upon the intersection of the River Tagus and the Atlantic ocean, neighbouring Carcavelos. Whereas Carcavelos receives the most attention, Oeiras is quieter and more reserved. Tourism rarely spills over into the town but is a popular option for locals and expats who looking for a blend of rural/city living.
The prices of properties here are not so different from those within the big city, but Oeiras does offer a glimmer of calm compared with Lisbon itself. Just twenty-five minutes by train and you can arrive in the heart of Lisbon. There are several beaches nearby which are popular with surfers, but hiking routes are minimal.

It’s near the beach, 10m/15m to downtown (Marquês Pombal) - by car, there are many gyms, cafes and restaurants also. Places are quiet. It also depends if you’ll be working from home or not. In Oeiras you can choose areas like: Carnaxide, Linda a Velha, Alto Santa Catarina, Queijas, Paço de Arcos, and Oeiras it self. - Tom, May 2022
