Portugal Resident

The Algarve's favourite weekly read

The Portugal Resident is the Algarve's top-selling paid-for English-language newspaper. It was first published in 1989 and has appeared, uninterrupted, every week since, continually developing in format and content to meet the needs of its readers and advertisers. The newspaper relies on a highly experienced team of staff journalists and specialised freelance writers to offer a unique insight into life in the Algarve and in Portugal with a strong focus on the local expat community combined with selective in-depth coverage of national news. Additional lifestyle content on travel, culture and gastronomy help make the newspaper the favourite weekly read for many thousands of expatriates living in the Algarve. The print edition is available for sale across the region whilst the website is one of Portugal's most important online resources for news in English. Since 2012, the Portugal Resident has been a part of the Open Media group of publications with various magazines in Portugal and Madeira. Here in the Algarve, AFPOP members will be familiar with the company's local titles such as Essential Algarve, Vivre Le Portugal, Clubhouse Algarve and the Inside  Lagos & Carvoeiro Magazines. Over the years, the Portugal Resident has enjoyed a good business relationship with AFPOP, sharing in the successes of the association, while offering support where needed. The publishers believe that AFPOP and the newspaper can continue to offer residents, whether they are AFPOP members or potential members, the information they need to succeed in their ventures and make the most of living in the Algarve. The Portugal Resident offers AFPOP members, on production of their AFPOP membership card, a discount of 7.5 per cent on classified advertising in the newspaper and 10% on subscriptions. Other member benefits may be offered from time to time, watch this page for updates
