Hello everyone, and welcome Andrew and your family.

It's great to see a hearty welcome and thorough discussion like this on the forum again.

I've nothing fresh to add, only that I love Leiria, it's a great time to buy, €100k would be great and you'd be more comfy on €1200/month where you wouldn't have to chop your own wood if you can't be bothered.

I think it's the school which is your most important consideration. Research well, find recommendations from well educated Portuguese and other expats. I'll go ask my academic Portuguese friends where they'll be sending theirs...

I'm just going to welcome you! Arriving here in a totally different situation (single, job in Portugal that came with room and board) and a totally different area (Alentejo Litoral) my experiences won't be of much use to you, but I still want to wish you the best of luck! Portugal is a great country, enjoy!

Hi Andrew.

I don't have too much to add. But with regards to what Mrs P has just said above maybe you will find this thread quite useful.

Good luck with everything.

wow diskwizz, that is one of the classics of forum history! What a gripping story and so amazing that it it spans over a +10 year period. Great to hear the voices of original members from 2006!

and this comment from the master... before my time... too funny (tears)

We have approached the whole change to Portugal in what seems to be a different way to most others!!!!!!!
We live in a motorhome ( it is actually a caravan at the moment----- the motorhome is parked in UK) on a piece of land------ we are totally 'off grid' so have none of the bills associated with a house----- we have solar electric etc. Nearly completed building a simple dwelling.
The OP is young enough to cut his firewood, set up solar panels, water tanks, solar water heater etc etc------ they could make this an adventure as opposed to a move somewhere else!!!!!!------ there are loads of schools where non Portuguese children will be catered for, -------- I suppose it depends if they just want to move from one place to another!!!!!!
It also depends on the expectations of the individual----- we are very happy living a quiet peaceful life enjoying the local environment and people----- we have no desires to have a fancy house, car etc------ and do this on basic pensions.
We are in central Portugal and hope to stay here 'till we die!!!!!
Everyone has their own dreams and expectations!!!!!!!! we have realised ours!!!!!
