    I am living in the UK and am looking at Central Portugal as a place to live.
    Basically I miss the sun, having lived in South Africa for 15 years where I have lived, worked- with and socialized with Portuguese. I like them and their lifestyle and their attitude to life. I have also been to Portugal a couple of times but not for prolonged stays. Despite that I don?t speak the language ? yet!
    I am about to receive a UK basic pension and am wondering
    if it would be a proposition to buy one of the ruins that are advertised
    in the Coimbra - Gois area and do it up to live there. Somewhere within striking distance of a large town.

    Hi Nicholas,
    We live in western Algarve at the moment, but are re locating to central Portugal.
    Why not buy a ruin if you are able to restore it, will you do it yourself?
    Portugal has its problems, like everywhere else, but we find it a great place to live, and the cost of living is cheaper than auk although not as cheap as it used to be.
    The weather in the central region is cooler than Algarve of course, and more rain, but the summers are good, go for it!
    Thank you

    Nice choice! A option...

    Hello Nicholas.

    Central Portugal is an excellent choice. Why not look for private condominium with excellent prices in Thermal/spa regions such as São Pedro do Sul - i´ve been there and i would like to say to you, is a magnificent region, with loveling people, and the thermal/spa complex are wonderful.. i do thermal treatemets there every years. I can send more info. by e-mail. Curative waters, nice weather, about 15 minutes from district capital... think about this...

    Have just bought a property in Esparoa close to Gois and easy drive to Lousa, a large town with rail link to Coimbra. A quiet but lovely area, friendly and welcoming even though I have no knowledge of Portuguese. Property a good price.

    I happen to be a South African who has lived in UK for 35 years or so. Portugal is good.

    Do contact me if you think I could help.

    Best wishes,

    Central Portugal looks promising...

    Not only is it a great place to live, but it's also one of the few places in southern Europe where property is still affordable. The fact that most of Portugal (excluding Lisbon and the Algarve) has not had a property boom like most other places across the continent would suggest it has great investment potential in the near to mid-term.
