Hi dear Permies,

I just saw a topic about Monsanto, I wanted to post in that topic about the other region in central Portugal, we need more permies here as well! But I thought making a new topic would get more attention..

Here on the other side of the Serra da Estrella are also a lot of people busy with permaculture, but I hope more will come! Its mostly foreigners (people from England, Germany, Holland and Belgium), who are concentrated around towns like Barril do Alva, Benfeita and Tabua. I am a bit more to the north, on the way to Viseu. Land prices here are about the same as in Castelo Branco (€0,50 per square metre for forest, double that for farmland with a good well). In my opinion this region is a bit less isolated than Castelo Branco region. There are plenty of websites that show land for sale in this region, but please keep in mind you pay more if you buy with help of such a company. You can skip paying Remax and co by just inform in local bars about land for sale. After I did that, a lot of 'for sale' signs popped up around here! People will also try to get a better price when they sell to foreigners, maybe you don't mind pay a little more, but be careful you don't pay too much, since that also affects the locals, if prices rises, they cannot afford to buy land anymore!

If you want some more information, let me know!

Hello! I hope you get lots of new permie faces coming into the region soon :) My partner and I just bought some land in Portugal and put together some tips based on our experiences :) Hopefully someone here finds it useful! xx
