Hi everybody!! My wife Mona and I have been living in Goldra de Baixo (5 minutes from Loule) for almost a year now. As with most folks moving abroad we have had a very busy year - none stop!! Having family and friends over, doing lots of work and decoration to the new house buying a vehicle and getting to know all about what is required etc etc. Can't believe it will be a year on 1st October since we moved in!!!

We are just about settled in - all those jobs mentioned above more or less completed and visits all but done and we are relaxing now and enjoying our retirement in the sun!!

The one thing we both are missing is the company of English speaking friends and acquaintances. We have met some people who have property here and visit a couple of times a year, but it is the friendly popping out for a coffee to have a chat or have a meal somewhere with like minded people that we are now looking for.

If anyone knows of anywhere in the Loule area where ex-pats hang out or if there are any clubs or gatherings etc then we would love to know!!

If anyone else is in a similar situation and want to meet up for a chat to discuss then feel free to contact

Thanks for reading

Nigel and Mona

Hi both. I live in Vilamoura and have found a few friends, like you many are on long term holiday visits.
From talking to others Albufeira has a larger proportion of expats.

There you go, a mammoth choice. If you just want a drink, maybe a meal and a chat that exists to.

Forgot a few ... Algarve History Association, Lions Club, Scottish Country Dancing Club, Mediterranean Gardening Society, Croquet Club, Algarvian Experimental Theatre Society, Portugal Friends, Golf for Greys, Chess Club, Golf Clubs (x 6 within 15 minutes drive), Bowls Clubs (Several) and those are just the English organised ones. Portuguese ones are easy to find by asking in the library, the junta, the Conservatorio, the University and range from meetings of Jazz Singers at Theatro Lethes through to Kite Surfing Groups on Faro Island.

No excuses for sitting at home watching UKTV !
