Pure Portugal’s top 5 ways to learn Portuguese (but please, not like Bobby Robson)

Brits abroad Learning the language is the preferable way to integrate in any foreign country. Most of mainland Europe appears to be able to communicate easily. Portuguese can understand Spanish. Dutch speak good English. The Germans, Swiss and Austrians speak each other’s languages. But English people are well known for not making an effort to bridge the cultural divide. Stereotypically, we will learn enough to get by and if needed, rely on shouting louder to make ourselves understood. Or we ...Read more

Living the Good Life: Heidi

A Escola da Ponte tem turmas desde o pré-escolar ao 9º ano e mais de 200 alunos inscritos.

The school is what we have been looking for – it’s part ...Read more

Bees and Bee Keeping Course

The bees have arrived at Quinta dos Covões!

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
