About Carl

Family man in my fifties with a passion for Portugal that includes a daily breakfast show and a weekly webinar with Expats Portugal!

My wife Louisa (‘Mrs M’) and I have three children and our youngest was born here. We have experienced many aspects of life in this endlessly fascinating and delightful country – the nitty-gritty of finding somewhere to live, access to healthcare, opening bank and utility accounts, as well as dealing with the Portuguese administration and bureaucracy.

We have had a lot of fun travelling and living all around the country and have found ‘home’ somewhere that meets our needs on Portugal’s Silver Coast, with a great balance of things to do and space to grow kids and food.

  • Parent, business owners, host of weekly meetup and prolific commentator on expat life in Portugal
  • Speaks English, some French and learning Portuguese
  • Interests include: Portuguese culture, food & drink, personal development and community building.

How it works

Your Expat is here to help you explore and find out more about your potential neighbourhood in Portugal.

Once you have selected and paid for your package, you will receive a digital survey to complete. This will help your Expat prepare the right type of information for your consultation.

For example, we would like to know if you are retiring or you have kids needing schools? What sports would you like access to? Do you want to live in a city or town or would you prefer the rural lifestyle?

Then a mutually appropriate time will be set for you to meet with your Expat.

Each host has nominated how they can help you:

  • Guided, in-person tours: Are you in Portugal or planning to visit soon? Book a guided in-person tour with one of our Expats and explore places like a local. Visit local facilities, attractions or discover where the best restaurants are. Our Expat will be your guide.
  • Online, personal tours: Not in Portugal yet but keen to explore a potential place to live? Or need someone to visit a property you’ve seen on the internet? Consider an online, personal tour with one of our Expats from that area. Includes photos and/or video content of places you would like to see. Discovery from the comfort of your lounge room.
  • Zoom/Skype/Messenger calls: Got questions about a place you are considering moving to? Or share an interest or hobby with one of our Expats? Have a chat with one of our team to find out everything there is to know.

Of course, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Expats Portugal or your Expat via their contact form.

  1. ShelleyL

    Carl has been so helpful!!
    He has spent time with me answering all my questions about the Central Portugal area and taking me around to towns and villages I am interested in living in. His knowledge of the area makes decision making so much easier. His questions about what I am looking for in my life in Portugal helped me to firm up where I would like to live.
    However his biggest contribution to my life has been his kindness and willingness to be a true friend. He really is interested in helping his clients find the Portuguese dream.
    Thank you Carl…..

    Carl first spent time on the phone with me to find out where I was and where I wanted to be and what I desired. Carl then showed me around some areas of interest and his local knowledge and connections were invaluable.
    The insight and useful info I got from spending time with Carl would have taken a week for me to acquire on my own. Great service and well worth every penny, or cent 😉

  3. sisco (verified owner)

    We spent a delightful and informative hour with Carl. His knowledge about the processes helped us understand better what our first steps must be in order to find a property in Portugal. His enthusiasm and wit were contagious. If anyone is slightly contemplating a life of retirement in Portugal, we strongly recommend a few consultations with Carl. Absolutely worth it!

  4. pete diane (verified owner)

    Carl is just brilliant and informed us about aspects that we hadn’t even considered. We can’t wait to buy him a drink or two when we get back to Portugal. You will do well to book a consultancy as he is well informed, enthusiastic and has a plethora of bright and sensible ideas.

  5. aodhanroe@hotmail.com (verified owner)

    My consultation with Carl was very helpful and informative. He is a fountain of knowledge all things Portugal and a very pleasant man to chat with. Would highly recommend for anyone considering moving to Portugal and need some help.

  6. BigCat (verified owner)

    I am so happy that I chose to use Carl as a consultant regarding moving to Portugal. He has great knowledge, a fantastic network, a positive mindset, and talking with him felt so easy and natural. I enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended!

  7. PortugalDream (verified owner)

    As someone braving their first steps into thoughts about moving to Portugal, Carl has been very helpful in not only providing support but also other resources and network that have been extremely useful in facilitating my knowledge about making the move to Portugal. Carl is very easy to talk with and you can’t fault his knowledge and enthusiasm to help in any possible way. I can highly recommend a consultation with Carl if you ever need help trying to make this transition!

  8. CeltiberianMan (verified owner)

    My family and recently met with Carl, his lovely wife Louisa, and their beautiful children. He has a huge range of interests, holds a great conversation, and has a wide range of resources to connect us with. We are trying to balance the needs of our children with our own work schedules and life goals while getting used to a new country. Few are in this kind of position, but Carl and his family understand this dynamic very well. We are looking forward to future visits with Carl, and we highly recommend his services!
