Luis Teixeira da Silva, Founder and Director

Senior Living Villages (Algarve Senior Living and Portugal Senior Living as brands in Portugal), headquartered in London, provides a range of solutions for the senior expat market, with a strong emphasis on the Algarve as well as the Lisbon / Cascais / Estoril and Porto areas. Costa Senior Living delivers similar solutions and services in the Costa Blanca and the Valencian regions of Spain.

Our clients, from over 25 countries around the world, tend to be independent retirees / seniors who spend long periods of time in or move permanently to southern Europe. We are the only company to offer both long term rentals (annual rentals, winter stays, etc.) as well as property sales through a collaborative model with local real estate agents, knowledgeable about the real estate market in their area. We work increasingly with investors as well as with families searching for family homes when relocating their family. For clients who want someone to act as their eyes, ears and be on their side, we operate a growing finder service which replicates the MLS approach common in the US and Canada. This can be found at and incorporates the more than 100 local real estate agencies, 200+ rental property owners or partners, and a proven property search methodology beyond our formal network.

In the Algarve, we have one of the largest independent portfolios of winter and long-let accommodation, We also operate long lets in greater Lisbon and the Costa Blanca. We are also well positioned to help clients who buy and do not use their properties all the time, to generate income from their property both during the summer and winter periods.

Our business will also developing its first independent living project in the heart of one of the Algarve’s most upmarket coastal resorts

We support many applicants with obtaining the Non-Habitual Resident (NHR) status which entitles eligible applicants to receive most foreign income (including many pensions) at an extremely advantageous tax rate for a period of 10 years. Our rental options, or our rent-before-you-buy approach, are a perfect solution for Irish citizens who usually require three years to fully migrate their tax residency fully from Ireland to Portugal. We also continue to offer a range of services from visa application support, assisting with health insurance, vehicle importation, legalisation of vehicles, opening bank account, getting fiscal number, registering at the health centre, management services for investment property and second-home BTL, as well as introduction to a range of lawyers and accountants.

We work with many clients who move to Portugal or Spain and one of the most popular approaches is to investigate the country and its options via one of our Discovery Tours, which provide unique insights into retirement and investment destinations and visits to suitable properties for long let or sale. We run an Iberian Tour, covering Spain and Portugal.
