A New Life in the Algarve, Portugal

A New Life in the Algarve Portugal

An anthology of life stories

Available Now!

What makes a person decide to move abroad to start a new life?

And why do so many people choose the Algarve in Portugal as their dream destination?

In this compilation of life stories, you can read about a whole range of different people who have made the Algarve their home. Read about the families that moved to live in the Algarve in the early 1970s, before tourism was even an idea.

Find out more about the people who packed up everything they owned to follow their dreams of a new life in the sun.

Funny moments, heartfelt journeys, and real-life modern adventures are all covered in this new and fascinating anthology.

Read their stories – and be inspired.

Includes a foreword written by the British Ambassador to Portugal.
I am so excited to be able to share this with you all!

The e-Book of ‘A New Life in the Algarve, Portugal’ is now available to order on Amazon.

It is available in Paperback, Hardback, Large Print or e-Book version. 

It was a real privilege to bring this book together and to share the stories of so many fascinating people that have made the Algarve their home. In the pages of this anthology, you can meet local artists, writers, and individuals that have set up amazing charities, innovative magazines, and new companies here. You will discover the life stories behind the owner of an award-winning wine farm, the couple who run a yurt farm, a wedding planner, estate agent, rural retreat owners, therapists, and the Vice-Consul to the British Embassy in Portugal – and many more!

The first reviews are already on the Amazon UK site and they are all 5-stars which is fantastic.

If you are a subscriber to our newsletter look out for the next edition on the 1st May when I will tell you more about how the book is doing on Amazon – and send you an exclusive VIP invitation to the Virtual Launch Party too.

Feel free to forward this to all your friends that might be interested.

Thank you for all your support
Love from Alyson

    A privilege to be a part of this. Excitedly awaiting my copy 🙂 🙂

  2. I just saw the title include Portugal and just clicked it open. Such a beautiful post to read of your books on stories of Portugal. Thanks for creating such a beautiful compilation. I just did something on my experience from a Portuguese Colonised Goa along with a FREE recipe of Sorpotel, feel free to visit my post to check it out. Hope you like it as much as I liked yours. And i’d love to collaborate on a book that features life and times of the Portuguese in Goa. Something about the romance and the relationships between the Portuguese colonial masters and the local Goans as there is not much on this in the archives.
