I have serious plans to move to Portugal... could anyone advise me? I would like to buy something, a quinta for instance... Somewhere where the prices are quite low and where there is good/enough water, rivers.
Which areas, what to think about, etc... I'm grateful for any kind of information Thanks!

Although I would be interested in why Portugal as I have friends there who tell me there are issues over water particularly with the ongoing climatic changes . ( note the big dry place to the south ) France is much better off in this respect .

Depends where you are in Portugal, there are lots of rivers etc in some area in the centre.
I am not interested in France, and also, lots of bureaucracy there that I can do without.
One disadvantage for me about Portugal is that is it a bit on the edge of Europe, which can be good in one way, but not so good if you want to travel to other places in Europe. But, ok, it's kind of near the Uk, but I don't really go there. I live normally in Sweden and one thing I am tired of, is that we are a bit cut off from the rest of Europe. But at least in Portugal there's more sunshine.

Keira, the region near Castelo Branco has water and the prices are cheap. North from that, the temperatures drop a lot...
