The Ask Our Expats team are hand selected and we will be adding more people as we go. Some of these members are Portuguese, others are expats who have lived here a long time or just recently moved.

Hi All.  I'm looking to make contact with any expats in and around Constancia, Central Portugal.  Like many others, my hopes of buying a property have been thwarted since Covid reared its ugly head but I'm staying positive and hoping that I may be able to visit Portugal again this year in May or September.  I'd really like to make contact with any expats who would like to share their knowledge and experience of living in and around the Constancia area.  Many thanks.  Elsza.

@beelszabub Hi there, sorry, I've only become active on here since your post! I'm based in Santarém District, as is Constância, and the area is part of the Ribatejo. There's now a new Ribatejo section on the forums, which we hope will become a good place to discuss local issues; I'm also available through the Ask Our Expats if you need specific things. 

Thomas

Hi, Are there forums on this site that help people connect in specific areas?  We are interested in the Coimbra area and intend to book a cooking class / restaurant tour with Frank while there next spring.  How best to plug into the local Expat community?  Must confess we're not huge FB fans!  Thank you for the info

@kkcwalton Great comments/questions. I find it hard not being a facebook, it seems that's the only place people hang out! It would be okay in normal circumstances because I would use groups, socials and things like meet-up. But with the restrictions you're very much excluded if you don't use Facebook.

@luise  Thank you Luise.  I can manage FB if I HAVE to, but definitely not my favorite platform.  Good to know it's the best platform to connect with the local community though.  Appreciate your response.  Best wishes

@carlM @luise It would be so helpful to have location based groups.  We're interested in the Coimbra area and wondering how to plug into the expat community there.  Appreciate any advice on that.  Thank you

@kkcwalton have been talking with colleagues here, seems it would make sense to have a core to get a regional group going and maintained. Looks like we have @luise and you. Any others please for a 'Coimbra area group'?

@luise it's possible, and we need a lot of 'ownership' to make them work. Fancy it?

If you decide to create a location based group, please make one for Porto also. I have met quite a few expats in the few days I have been here and I think they would like this in addition to Facebook and whatsapp.
