Hi anyone, My wife Gill and I are semi retiring and moving to Portugal this year. WE have sold up in the UK and looking to buy a new home within 1 hr of LIsbon and the airport, probably somewhere between Vila Franca and Santarem and within 15km of the Tejo river. WE have spent quite some time looking around and we are coming to the Cartaxo area for a week from 9th May. It would be great to chat with anyone with any tips or local knowledge and even meet up whilst we are there in May!

All contacts and advice appreciated.

David & Gillian

Hi David and Gillian, and welcome. We would suggest that if access to Lisbon airport is an important consideration, then maybe bear in mind the locations of train stations along the line from Santarém to Lisbon Oriente station (located in the same suburb as the oceanarium). There are stations servicing both Cartaxo and VF, as well as Santarém (and another just outside). The regional (slower) service that runs regularly each day costs just 6€ from Santarém to Lisboa one way, 50 min journey and then you can join the metro at the same station for a trifling amount which takes you into the airport within 2 quick stops. There are faster services from Santarém for a bit more. The train line from Santarém pretty much follows the course of the Tejo, so it should be possible to find somewhere you like within easy reach of both. Good luck and happy house-hunting.
