Paulo, the land is secluded from the main town, The olive trees are grown right up to the street and extend a quarter mile back into the land. We would build deep in the property, perhaps where the second shed is.We would definitely try schmoozing the council:wink:. We had most in mind selling in the big cities, where my parents live.
As you know, in portugal you don't need a whole lot to get by. We've significantly cut down our expenses and plan on cutting down further when we get there, to the point that our only expenses are diesel, internet(about 15-20 euros a month), phone(cheap in portugal) and food(free for the most part). We use clay for toothpaste, no shampoo, no deodorant, no television, etc., my point being we don't need a whole lot.
Thank you for all the info, I'll jot down some of those cash crops as well.
