Vale de Telha would be my guess.

Almancil and surrounding region, tens of thousands of homes owned by Brits, thousands of businesses run by Brits and a high number of UK expats. (I read different figures often but its usually estimated as between 30000 and 40000 permanent/semi permanent residents).

Vale de Telha is a small building development on the East coast.

Hi Miss, welcome to the forum
there are a couple of international schools on the silver coast, as well as a few expats, the prices to buy are a bit cheaper than the Algarve too. good luck with your plans

Hi Miss,
We have everything you ask about, we have a lot of Scots here too. There is an international school at Marinha Grande, but most families find putting their kids into mainstream schools helps them more with their Portuguese.

Would recommend the Silver Coast, Climate is not too hot, house prices still reasonable and lots of golf courses around too!
You will love it i am sure
