Landrover Adventures in the Snow…

Last week saw us welcoming the first visitors of the New Year to Quinta da Estrela… As the first snows had fallen at the Torre and the sun had popped out for the day, I took the opportunity to pile everyone in my Landover for a tour of my favourite tourist spots in the Serra da Estrela.   Torre Mountain The highest peak on the mainland of Portugal and the second highest peak of the ‘complete’ country. With its 1993 meters ...Read more

Working From Home

A guide to earning a living in your pyjamas! by Emma Crabtree, Red Box Business Support Recently, I have been in conversation with new acquaintances and the subject always comes around to “What do you do?” When I say that I am a VA it draws a blank, always. Saying that I am a PA but I work from home, usually gets a nod or two, but then I add that some of the time my workplace is located in Portugal ...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. Andrea’s working on some extra special benefits for agents and owners who advertise ...Read more

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! My Inner child was very happy to have a “grown up” excuse to climb ladders and balance on tree branches, as I was determined to reach all of the Olives that were way out of my reach! It was great to be out doors all day and have lunch cooked on an ...Read more

Discovering… the good life!

For the last month I have been busy and excited with my new project: developing the new Pure Portugal Holidays website. I´ve finished recently a very interesting Life Coaching course that help me to take conscience of some important details about “my true self”, and learn some different ways to help people around me to be motivated, peaceful and happy.

New, new, new…

After a few weeks of rainy, windy, stormy days, finally November arrived in Portugal with a glorious and warm sunshine. Perfectly combined with the autumnal colors, lovely flowers everywhere are making our gardens colourful and happy and we can still hear busy bees here and there. Like a busy bee is what I feel myself lately, but so happy! I have been trying to combine my work on Pure Portugal with my “gardens work” and renovation works on our new ...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. 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

Meet the Team: Joana

I am Joana, one of the members of Pure Portugal’s Team. I was born in Porto and I first fell in love with nature and countryside when my family moved to the mountains in Central Portugal to live a more natural and rural life. Though my childhood, teenage and pre-adult life was passed between the city and countryside. I studied Design in Porto and lived there for a few years, but my real dream was always to have a simple life, ...Read more

Speaking Portuguese

Some basic sentences you may need to know in Portuguese. (Valença do Minho) Arriving in a new country is always an exciting experience, so many new things, different people, culture and traditions. A whole new “world” to discover and learn about. But it can also be a little scary, and the communication may sometimes become a problem. In spite of the fact that nowadays English is considered a universal/ global language and the Portuguese people are well known for their natural ...Read more

Lets drink “Café”!

Portuguese people really love to drink coffee and they do it like no one else! In a cooled cup (chávena fria) in summer, or in a heated cup by boiling water (chávena escaldada), drinking coffee (tomar café) is so much more than the obvious act of drinking something! It is in fact, a social and cultural act that promotes socialization and conversation among people, joining friends to spend some time together or it may simply mean that we are going ...Read more

Courgette Saturday!

There is nothing quite like the feeling of abundance as we move into August here in Central Portugal. Nature never ceases to show us her abundance every day, in the form of our gardens. Whether large or small, permaculture style or more standard, with a little care in the form of water, a handful of estrume(manure) here and there, and with the added force of the portuguese summer sun, the earth cannot fail to produce gluts in many forms. I ...Read more

Accounting for Dummies!

I am a complete numpty when it comes to accounting, my brain just shuts down when presented with figures of any kind.  So when Andy left Pure Portugal and I had to take charge of doing our accounts, I needed to find something that was designed for dummies! I did some internet research and anything with the word “spreadsheet” – which gives me horrors – was instantly rejected. Then I found FreeAgent which seemed to be exactly what I was ...Read more

Concertina do Minho

The Portuguese concertina is a diatonic accordion and is especially popular in northern Portugal, mainly in the  Minho (the north-west region of Portugal) where it has become the “national instrument” (taking over from the bagpipes, which are still the traditional instrument of Portugal’s other northern region, Tras-os-Montes). On our recent campervan holiday to the north of Portugal, we made a special detour to Ribeira de Pena to visit a shop that sells new and 2nd hand concertinas (alongside a fantastic mix of other goods including ...Read more

Little Red Dog

My lovely little Red dog has a new home! I am sad and happy about this, but I cannot look after her whilst I am here, and my future in Portugal is still very uncertain – I don’t even know where I will live! After a few months in Portugal, my husband heard of this ‘small’ street dog that needed a home – so he brought her home for me. I was expecting a handbag size dog, but was was ...Read more

‘A Agua Velada’

Last Monday was the third Monday of July and it is tradition for at least the last 100 years that all the inhabitants(or at least those who wish to take advantage of the pristine mountain spring water) go up into the mountains above Linhares da Beira to clean the sources of seven springs and the levadas(waterways), all the way down to the village itself. This year, I along with about 40 other villagers, met at the barragem(dam) early, on yet ...Read more

Marmite, Baked Beans, and Books

After more than 10 years in Portugal, my need for marmite and baked beans has long gone. However, I still can’t live without English-language books.  Every trip back to England will find me browsing the charity shop shelves whilst trying to calculate airline baggage weight allowances. I usually travel to the UK with just one change of clothes and an otherwise empty suitcase, to make room for charity shop purchases of new clothes and new reading material. Other times you’ll find me browsing Amazon (yes, ...Read more

Passou Por Mim e Sorriu

Most nights when I go to sleep I dream of Portugal. That I am walking through the forest, collecting quartz crystals from the ground, singing to the trees or talking with the moon. Somehow there was always magic in the air; it’s not quite like that in England….my sparkles have dimmed somewhat as I live in a town, and set to work on material things. It’s hard to explain what it is like to fall in love with something new each day, ...Read more

Emma’s Independence Adventure

Yesterday I had my first proper driving lesson! One of my goals whilst in England is to get my driving license so I can have my freedom when in back in Portugal. It’s going to be a big challenge as I never thought I would learn to drive, I was always very happy on my feet and thought I would be quite dangerous behind the wheel of a car (as well as not being sure if I could reach the ...Read more

This is Where I Live (Inês)

I live in the North of Portugal in a small fishermen town by the river and the sea. I can leave house and walk ten minutes to the beach. I arrive two years ago to this village situated in the greenest region of Portugal: Minho. Crossing a bridge, there is a nice and pleasent city named Esposende. Like several other rural, agricultural and fishing towns, desertification and unemployment are issues that the populations have to face. People prefer to live ...Read more

A Passion for Portugal

Although he drives me crazy at times, I totally lucked out when I fell in love with a Portuguese man who is passionately in love with this/his incredible country, who knows many of its secret and most beautiful places, and who wants to share them with me. Just when I think there can’t  possibly be any new ones for me to discover, least of all close to home, he takes me on a short drive and just as the sun is beginning to set we walk across some fields and ...Read more

The Power of Josticks

Yesterday I bought a packet of josticks from “Hiper China” in Gouveia (there are many chinese shops in Portugal, yet few Chinese restaurants – go figure). I chose them because I liked the smell, but on closer inspection the packet told me that burning them will attract money 🙂  I haven’t even taken them out of the car and into the office yet but today we have 3 properties that are now in the process of being sold, and I’ve just had ...Read more

New Pure Portugal Office

We’re finally – after 4 temporary office moves in the last 15 months – settled into our new office! Some of us living locally on off-grid quintas have rented a house in the village to use as a base where we have some shared infrastructure such as a washing machine (this means we don’t each have to have our own!), a massage / therapy room, a further room where Fran teaches yoga on Saturday mornings, and the Pure Portugal office. ...Read more
