A personal story
When we drove back to The Netherlands after our holidays in the Algarve in 2001, we were absolutely sure. We were not going to live in the Algarve, nor were we going to buy a house south of Lisbon.
We did not really like the landscape. Of course, the sea is marvellous, always and everywhere, but the countryside consists of huge plains, dry oliveyards and extensive pine forests. Beautiful, but not for us.
So we drove home and perhaps we might still have lived in Holland, but for the fact that some hundred kilometers north of Lisbon, we drove through a beautiful, green landscape.
Want to know what's on?
No-one will deny the Portuguese like a party. Many parties are organised during the year, for instance every village organises 1 or more parties, with lots of music, dance and good food. And if you don't speak the language: your hands and feet will get you a long way. Besides, many - young - locals like to practice their English.
Below you can read everything about parties, concerts, events and exhibitions that are on now or in the near future.
