Cascata de Luxo
Towards a Dream
Who We Are
We are Nick and Yury – friends for already 15 years and partners at Cascata de Luxo, LDA.
It was the middle of 2020, the hard time to decide to open a new business, but we took the challenge, and in September, our company was registered. Although we were newcomers to Portugal and our knowledge of the country wasn’t significant yet, our entrepreneurial experience clearly stated about the opportunities hidden in this gem – the strip of the ocean-side land where the sun shines almost all year around.
We both moved from Kyiv, Ukraine. In business, it is essential to look for better market opportunities. In life, in general, it is natural to look for better places to live. And we were constantly moving forward towards these goals. But pandemic accelerated this process, and the decision to move the capital to a better economy and ourselves to a better-quality life – was fast.
Proper timing is essential. That’s why, while the real estate market stood still as a scared rabbit, we decided that it was the right time to buy property. And why not build a business on top of this process?
For us, it worked like this:
We had an experience obtaining the residence permit for ourselves. And as soon as we noticed all of the downsides of the process, we saw the opportunity to improve it and built a service called MoveToCascais.com. It took us six months to understand how to scale it – and not only in obtaining new clients but also that the service could be the best quality on the market.
After we started, it was inevitable to deal with banks regarding all the KYC/AML procedures, so as soon as we knew this part of the process well, we began to add services and improved MoveToCascais.
In parallel, we decided to invest some money in the real estate market. For this purpose, we followed all the required processes – made appointments with agents, dealt with lawyers, talked to bankers, credit brokers, insurance companies, accountants.
So we did our own research, and the result was such: we bought a house for reconstruction near the ocean where four flats will be. Depending on the market, we’ll sell them or rent them out. After that first deal, we also bought a land plot with a project for two houses which we will build and sell.
As soon as we acknowledged ourselves with the process of buying and selling real estate in Portugal, we decided that we could also help lots of people to do the same. Especially when we saw such requests from our existing clients all the time – many of them were looking for similar opportunities as we did.
So we decided to provide not only consulting services but also obtain a real estate license to be able to represent the interests of our clients in this market fully. That’s when the RocaInvest.com website appeared.
As soon as our first clients of MoveToCascais service began to move to Portugal, we saw the growing demand for newly constructed villas, condos, and apartments. These kinds of requests we are also trying to fulfill. You will find all the needed information on the RocaEstate.com website.
Now we are working on two other projects:
HomeInPortugal.eu for older people who want to retire in such a pleasant manner – in a house by the ocean. And the other one is RocaLivingProject.com – a project aimed to fulfill the modern demand for “community-living” where same-minded people work and live as neighbors.
In business, we value win-win relationships. And that’s why we focus most of all on the value we can give to our clients – deliver the best possible results while saving time and money.
All of our clients already know and understand that living a dream life is not a fairytale – it’s the reality here, in Portugal. It’s a warm and welcoming country where people enjoy life entirely. Believe us, you will like it, too!
Our front office is located in Cascais – the most beautiful and charming city in Portugal; in Sheraton Resort, which is a natural park, just 1 kilometer away from the Atlantic ocean.
Somebody calls this place “the end of the world,” but we think of it as the center. And if you look at it from such a perspective, you would definitely understand why people from all around the globe choose Cascais to be their home. That’s why we want all of our clients to come to taste this ocean-shore life. You are warmly welcomed here!
For now, we’ve got almost 15 people (and counting) working on delivering the best possible services to you. Apart from the people in the office in Cascais, our team is distributed through 3 different countries cause we appreciate the idea of remote work when you can freely decide from where to do your duties regardless of any boundaries.

To make the long short, we take our client by the hand and walk him through all the processes needed to live a great-quality life here, in Portugal – from picking up in the Lisbon airport, choosing an apartment to rent, obtaining a residence permit, etc., to buying a dream home.
