Post by Zest Car Rental Whether we like it or not, smartphones have become invaluable tools for planning and booking holidays. They’re also fast replacing guide books and maps once we arrive at our destination, thanks to the power of the internet. These days, travel apps are a rapidly growing business and whilst many of them are poor, there are some great ones too. So with that in mind, what are the top travel apps for 2016?

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

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. I’ve never known anyone who’s used them to not be impressed. Not only essential for ...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

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. In theory it’s simple but quarantine regulations have made it trickier than you’d first think. Pet passports are a real thing!

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. Coaching make me understand my guiding values and the small little things that truly matter. I realise that some “health ...Read more

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

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”. To my amazement, my slogan was one of six winners, and my then spouse and I were whisked ...Read more

Sophie Eu sou a Diretora do Pure Portugal e iniciei a empresa há cerca de 10 anos com o meu marido, após termos sido desafiados a criar um site onde pudéssemos anunciar algumas propriedades de amigos, para alugar durante as férias. Rapidamente, outras pessoas nos pediram para adicionar as suas propriedades para arrendar, e pouco tempo depois, éramos abordados por pessoas que sugeriam divulgar também propriedades para vender. Eventualmente o site inicial acabaria por tornar-se algo confuso pelo que decidimos ...Read more

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. Others were soon asking to list their holiday and rental properties on the website and then people started asking if we would consider listing properties for sale. Eventually the original website became cumbersome and confusing and so we split the business into two – ...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

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. The sheep are in a small pen made of metal gates (cancelas) that slot together, and the pen is moved to a new patch of land every day – this is a great way to ...Read more

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

Guide to Driving in Portugal

Portugal offers the perfect mixture of traditional villages and lively cities. Why not visit a vineyard, drive along the awe-inspiring coastline, through the spectacular Douro valley (pictured) or immerse yourself in some Portuguese culture. Hiring a car and driving around Portugal is simply the best way to discover it. There are lots of hidden beaches and beautifully set villages hidden in the Portuguese countryside that simply need to be uncovered. Currently, there are some toll roads throughout the Porto and Lisbon ...Read more

Eating Invisible Flowers: the Delicious Mystery of FIGS

© Keith Irwin Their skins are golden or leaf green, delicate cream with a pale pink blush, amber, mauve, royal purple shading into eau de nil, or inky violet tinged with midnight. There are dozens of varieties in Portugal, and their names echo like the words of a song – surely a love song in praise of the beloved’s beauties: Olho de Perdiz, Douro, Pingo de Mel, Paraíso and Princesa. Every year, millions of people around the world watch the ...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

Floresta Portuguesa Sustentável

Nós – um grupo de portugueses e estrangeiros que acreditamos que tem de haver uma melhor maneira para o ambiente E para as pessoas – criámos esta página porque acreditamos que AGORA é uma excelente oportunidade para reflorestar as florestas devastadas no Portugal com árvores autóctones como castanheiros e sobreiros. Mas os habitantes locais precisam de ganhos, por isso o mais provável é que teremos mais pinheiros e eucaliptos, duas das mais inflamáveis árvores do planeta. Esta é a verdadeira ...Read more

Sustainable Forests for Portugal

We – a group of Portuguese and foreigners who believe there has to be a better way for the environment AND the people – have set up this page because we believe that NOW would be the perfect opportunity to replant the devastated forests of Portugal with the indigenous forest of sweet chestnut and oak. But local people need an income, so chances are we’ll see more pine and eucalyptus, This is the real root of the problem – massive ...Read more

Beber de uma Nuvem

15 de agosto de 2015. A Vida em Portugal – autora: Dra. Jude Irwin Hoje, enquanto fazia a minha corrida matinal e me movimentava calmamente através da névoa fria que se espalhava pela encosta arborizada abaixo, eis que me deparo com um mistério. Os raios de sol já começavam a queimar, criando manchas de azul vívido por cima de mim. Porém… Eu conseguia ouvir um ruído: era a inconfundível e bem-recebida água neste violento verão de seca e de incêndios ...Read more

Depois do Fogo. Uma Caminhada pela Floresta (Muito) Negra

15 de agosto de 2015 – A Vida em Portugal – Autora: Dra. Jude Irwin Ao lerem isto, alguns de vós já devem estar “habituados” a isso aqui em Portugal. De certo que já presenciaram incêndios florestais e leram sobre eles, e certamente também já experienciaram a amargura de ouvir o som das sirenes, o fumo a deflagrar e os desvios rodoviários tantas vezes que, mais um incêndio, é apenas “só mais um”. Mas para mim e para o Keith, ...Read more

Drinking from a Cloud

August 17, 2015. Life in Portugal by Jude Irwin As I took my morning run today, jogging rather ponderously through the cool mist that billows down the wooded hills, I encountered a mystery. The sun had started to burn through, creating patches of vivid blue above me. And yet…I could hear a sound – unmistakable and welcome in this gusty summer of drought and forest fire: It was raining! Or was it? If it was, why wasn’t I getting wet? ...Read more

After the Fire. A Walk in the (Very) Black Forest

Some of you reading this are “old hands” here in Portugal. You’ve seen forest fires and read about them, and put up with the wailing sirens, smoke and road diversions so long that another one is just ho-hum. But for Keith and me, the burning around Figueiró dos Vinhos during the first week of August 2015 was our first experience of a rapidly-spreading and potentially catastrophic conflagration. It was both shocking and fascinating. One week after the last of 600+ ...Read more

When the Forest Burns

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

O Meu Jardim

This year I’ve been learning more about gardening – or learning how much I’ve already learnt about gardening here in Portugal. I’ve learnt that I have a compulstion to create gardens wherever I go, which has meant that in the last 18 months I’ve made gardens in five locations. The garden I have now is at Quinta da Forja, and although it’s tiny in comparison to the garden I had at Quinta das Abelhas, it’s giving plenty of produce – every day I’m ...Read more

Chutney (Glutney)

Today I’m making chutney. Going on holiday last week meant that courgettes had turned into marrows, perfect for making “Glutney” from my favourite preserving recipe book Preserves: River Cottage Handbook No.2. Slipped into the page with the Glutney recipe I found a piece of paper with our own variation written on it, for “Aliss’s Chopped Chutney” so I thought I’d share that recipe here – and the photo it brought back memories of, 5yr old Jorge stirring the huge pan of chutney. ALISS’S CHOPPED CHUTNEY ...Read more
