Hi guys,

We will be moving over to the Albufeira area March next year after many years of holidays in and around this area. we have many Portuguese friends and their advice has been invaluable. We will be looking to buy within 5k of Albufeira, no mortgage. we will have a budget of 2500 euros for the first three years till our state pensions kick in. this will be to cover food (two adults) utilities, taxes etc. in general terms will this be enough ? we can top this up from savings if we have to.

sorry, yes our budget will be 2,500 euros a month. hoping not to drive, our friends have told us not to worry, great as they are it is better to hear it from someone who has been there done that. we will be over again in Sept on holiday, then again in Nov to research the areas, find a solicitor and check out a few estate agents. will be back to the forum when we reach our next stage, great advice thanks to all who post it really helps.

Hi Andy,
Welcome to the Forum.
Posh git :-/
You do realise that the higher state UK pension will be €10,293 a year?
€2500 a month! No worries -:)
All the best for your search,
Chris

Hi all,

This is a similar question but from a but of a different angle.

We're doing our sums for a permanent move to Portugal. Is anyone willing to give us a ballpark figure of what a couple would need to budget to live in Portugal? We're hoping to move to Northern Portugal without a mortgage.

Thank you in advance...
