Algarve Blog Advice Service

Looking to move to live and/or work in the Algarve?

Need advice about what to do and how to do it all?

Or are you visiting the Algarve on holiday and want some ideas about where to stay and what to see?

Want insider tips and recommendations that are “off the beaten track”?

Then why not book an individual Consultation Session with Algarve Blog writer Alyson Sheldrake?

For only 45 Euros you will receive up to an hour of Skype call (voice not video) or Facebook Messenger call; and up to 2 hours of research time and e-mail replies from Alyson. You will also receive a permanent record of links to useful websites, recommended hotels, tours and locations and other useful information and contacts via e-mail.

You can pay simply and easily on line via bank transfer or Paypal.


Alyson has been holidaying here in the Algarve for over 15 years with her photographer husband Dave. They bought a house in Ferragudo and have lived here permanently since 2011. They run their own successful businesses, have written the award-winning Algarve Blog since they moved out here to live, and have been through most of the pitfalls and joys of living abroad. They are happy to share their experiences and first-hand knowledge with you .. and if there is anything they do not know, they will know someone that does know!

Alyson is also an ‘expert expat’ Guest Speaker at the prestigious Live and Invest Overseas Portugal conference, which is based here in the Algarve each year. You can find out more about this conference via the link here.


How does it work?

Contact me in the first instance via e-mail:

I will send you information about payment, and once payment has been received in full, I will e-mail you to confirm a convenient time for us to talk or message. You are welcome to e-mail me an overview of your requirements in advance.

If you are not totally happy with your customised Consultation Session then I will simply refund your payment in full, however I am confident that you will be delighted with our help.


What if I haven’t got Skype?

If you haven’t already got Skype installed, it’s easy and free to download and use to receive calls. Just go to for more information.

If you do not have Skype we can use Facebook’s Messenger call service.

If you do not want to use Skype or Facebook and you are happy to call me in Portugal (at your own expense) instead that is fine. I will send you full contact details once payment has been received.


I am here to help you however I can. Why not e-mail me and see how I can assist you.
