Hello everybody,

I am Jon and I arrived in Portugal with my family in August. After living in and near Geneva for more than 10 years, we came here in Portugal to live a more simple and sunny life.

We have 2 young sons and a dog. My wife is American (Orange County) and I am French. We are now living near Sao Martinho do Porto but are looking at buying a property in Alentejo. My wife is a naturopathic doctor, massage therapist and yoga teacher. I am a web designer and photographer.

We would love to connect with some of you guys, if anyone is in our area please let me know.

Have a great day!

Jon

Hello Jon,

Congrats on your move.  My husband Leif and I are right behind you with a report date of April 2022 and looking to reside in the Silver Coast area!  

Leif is in cyber security and looking to retire at the beginning of the year and I love to craft, read, cook and entertain.

Look forward to meeting up once we arrive and would appreciate any advise from someone who is already in the area!

Susan

@ashish Hi Ashish -- we are moving with the Help of the Expats Portugal's preferred partner Ei.  We've just had one consult thus far so we don't have a lot of feedback yet.  If you have specific questions, plz shoot them our way and we'll do what we can to answer.  Good Luck to you!

Hey Jon,

Awesome news on your move.

My partner and I will be staying in Sao Martinho do Porto from Nov 1 through Nov 14.  We are from the Annapolis, MD area in the US and are looking to buy a property somewhere on the Silver Coast.

We would love to meet up during our visit to get your perspectives and any advice you may be willing to share on your move to Portugal and the Silver Coast in general.

 

Scott

Well, in São Martinho do Porto (I guess) you can always contact Carl Munson, Mr. GMP himself.
