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! You may well remember the Algarve from blissful childhood holidays in the sun, no doubt involving melted vanilla cornets and fresh sardines by the harbour.

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. Check the action! … It gives me flashbacks of when my friend Gertjan and I dug out that small pond after having come back from the Water Symposium in Tamera (April 2012). I had an inspired impulse to create some of my own water retention spaces ...Read more

In the Office Today

This is how I’d like today in the office to be: However the reality is that we’re huddled in front of the fire, heads down and working hard. Without wine, but with plentiful cups of tea. At least it’s exciting work! Alongside answering client enquiries via email, I’m in conversations with clients on facebook, updating the blog, thinking about this month’s newsletter, and browsing pinterest for design inspiration.

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

Top Five Kitchen Essentials

Here are my top 5 kitchen essentials, the ones I have come to really appreciate since living on a Portuguese smallholding. Portuguese Knives I have never found better knives than the Portuguese ones.  Similar to Opinel but at a fraction of the cost, they come in a variety of sizes and you can buy them almost anywhere – from your local market to the big supermarkets.

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

Pet Passport – Taking Pets Abroad

If you’re moving abroad or looking to purchase a 2nd home, the process of taking your pets with you may not be something you’ve really thought about in detail.

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. This was no mean task in itself, as even my Landrover was spinning on the steep wet slopes and the car nearly went into the river a couple of times! 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

Perfect Greek Yoghurt

Rise and shine – it’s a new day, and it could begin with glorious Greek yogurt, bananas and honey for breakfast. How To Make Perfect, Creamy Greek Yogurt I owe a lot to Greek yogurt. Once, years ago, while living in the UK, I entered a competition promoted on the top foil of a Greek yogurt called “FAGE” – pronounced “fáh yeh”.

Meet the Team: Sophie

I’m the Director of Pure Portugal and started the business over ten years ago with my husband after we were asked to produce a website to advertise a few holiday properties in Portugal owned by friends.

Sweet Pepper Relish

The Pure Portugal office is set within land that is used by the landlady’s sister and her husband. At the moment I am listening to the gentle tinkle of sheep bells, as the herd is here eating up the corn stalks and fertilising the land.

Car Hire Tips for Older Drivers

Recent research carried out by Economy Car Hire has shown that a number of car hire suppliers penalise older drivers simply because of their age. And it doesn’t matter how many years no claims or how much experience you have. In one instance, we discovered RecordGo charges drivers aged 70 or older an additional €58 per day up to a maximum of €192, including 21% tax. At current exchange rates, this adds around £136 to the cost of your holiday. ...Read more

Eating Invisible Flowers: the Delicious Mystery of FIGS

Devolução à Natureza um Mocho-galego
