: Olá! Welcome to Portugalist, your guidebook to Portugal. I grew up in Portugal and, although I’ve lived all over the world, Portugal has always managed to draw me back. I created Portugalist so that others could get helpful and accurate information about Portugal, and so that I could share my love for this great country with others.

: I am in my early sixties and having been made redundant after a career in education, find myself retired and living with my husband in the Algarve.We bought a just built house here with an undeveloped garden and this blog is the story of our transition to a different way of life and the development of a garden from scratch.

: I’m a Canadian who traded corporate Toronto for a slower life in Northern Portugal in late 2013. I started this blog in 2002 and it’s since grown to more than 6,000 posts, covering a lifetime of topics.

: Renovating a house in Portugal

: In 2014 we followed our dream and bought a house in the sun. This blog follows our journey through decision making process, buying, running a holiday let and preparing to retire and live permanently in our dream home.

: My husband and I first discovered the wonderful Portuguese approach to food and life in 2004 on Madeira. After many Madeirian holidays, we decided in 2013 it was about time we discovered mainland Portugal.

: Much as I enjoy Portuguese cities, I get a real kick from searching out the hidden treasures and try to avoid touristy places and experiences. I much prefer the traditional hillside villages of ancient stone cottages, medieval towns with fascinating histories and crumbling castles, walking trails through unspoilt countryside and wild swimming at river beaches.
