Here's some good news for apartment hunters. Finding a good apartment in a nice neighbourhood at a reasonable price is easier in Lisbon than in most of the other European capitals.
Property rentals in Portugal can be short-term, for a few weeks or months or long-term, for six months or longer. Most estate agents offer short (or holiday) rental as well as long-term rental. Properties can also be found in the classified section of the newspapers, such as the Publico and the Diário de Notícias, in the English language publications such as the Portugal News or on specialised web portals.
