Selecting locale-Country?

[I posted this in the General Discussion also]

Hi All!

I have longed for country living for many years (always lived in a city).  I am from the US.  I would love to move to Portugal and live in a small house with land (rented) for my dog.  

I realize this may be a pipe dream as I do plan to own a car, and I also intend to rent.  

I also have some limitations and require a more temperate climate (no extremes) if possible (I know, climate change), and flatter terrain.  


I have mainly been looking at smaller towns/cities as my dream seems unlikely.  

Does anyone have any advice for me in terms of locales?  And what are the considerations I may not be thinking of? Seeking solutions.
