Olive Pruning and Wall Repairing

There’s lots of work going on here at Quinta dos Covões this month. There are a couple of fantastic local guys here pruning the very overgrown olive trees to get them back into production. Also there’s a digger and two men repairing the tallest wall that suffered a collapse at some point in the past.  The bee hives are going to be installed on the terrace immediately above the newly-repaired wall, just in time for the Monthly Bee Keeping Course with Harald ...Read more

Rocket Stove

Nice and comfy, nested on the heated sofa-bench… The house is warm, the water hot, and the stove gently crackling as it finishes hits burn for the day. Temperature meant to go down to 1°C tonight. Right now it’s 4.7°C out there, but 20.2°C in here. Our rocket stove is now in its second week of its second season. Only 2 blow backs so far ; once after I rushed putting a big log in shortly after starting it, the ...Read more

Portuguese Bureacracy: What to expect!

How to change your address at tax office and bank, and put water and electricity bills in your name: 1. Go to tax office (Finanças): Take number ticket, queue for ages (play games on your phone because despite knowing it was going to be a day of queuing, you forgot to bring a book).

Mortgages for Portugal

Arranging any mortgage abroad can be a daunting prospect and Portugal is certainly no exception. For the uninitiated, it’s difficult to know where to start and whether information you see or receive is correct. This is complicated by the fact that banks lending in Portugal do not always offer the same conditions to clients, even if they have similar profiles. The mortgage market in Portugal is quite traditional in the sense that having the right contacts is crucial if you ...Read more

Coconut Oil Deodorant

In a discussion on the facebook group Pure Portugal Living the Good Life  I offered to share my recipe for home-made coconut oil deodorant, so here it is!

Change for the Better

To change, to develop, to grow, is Natural. We see it in animals, humans, nature itself. To change for the better is something that we all should persue, in order to make our life prettier, easier, healthier, more functional. Pure Portugal’s website needed that change, naturally, as the website is the company’s face, body and organism. The new design is light and functional and in my opinion reflects the natural way of life we promote. The change was not only ...Read more

The Algarve: 5 Reasons Why It Should Be On Your Map For 2016

Here are our top five reasons to visit Portugal’s top holiday hot-spot in 2016!

Millo: Let the Streams Flow In

The stream has started flowing (and strong)! Give Thanks! Sunday January 10, 2016, Quinta das Moitas Now, with all the rain, it’s started overflowing, along the levada that I’ve been building slowly over the time here.

In the Office Today

Stuck up an Olive Tree…

Here is the proof that I can still climb trees! ….. Although I never expected to be putting this childhood talent into practice for 3 days of Olive Harvesting!

It was great to be out doors all day and have lunch cooked on an ...Read more

Natural Decorations: Olive Tree

Many thanks to Jackie McAvoy for sharing this great way to use some olive prunings to make a christmas (or other) decoration. To make a little olive tree: You need lots of twigs, more and less the thickness of a pencil (the branches), one straight thin twig about 25cm long (the trunk) and then, for the base, a chunkier section about 4cm wide. You also need a pair of secateurs (for the branches), a saw (for the base) and a drill ...Read more

Andrea’s Escapades…

It’s been a busy month here in the Serra da Estrela as we prepare for winter. Firewood had to be cut from the old chestnut trees with deadwood and then moved across the farm to the house.

We have had builders working on one of the houses which meant relocating ...Read more

Let the Renovations Begin!

I’ve just signed the promessory contract for my new little quinta. It’s been a long time coming this satisfaction of my longing to settle and (literally) put permanent roots down – I’ve moved, and made gardens (an irresistable urge I have whenever I find myself in a new place), four times in the last 18 months. Once all the paperwork is finally sorted out – the property was divided into two halves when inherited by two daughters. When I say two halves of a ...Read more
