About Us

We are a couple from Porto, north of Portugal.
Daniel is a Computer Engineer and Raquel is a Psychologist and Tourism Manager. So, we decided to match our skills and passion for sustainability and help this beautiful community of people to live the good life in Portugal.
We both work for Pure Portugal as a facilitators for foreigners who want to start living on the land in Portugal, helping them to buy their dream home, to connect and integrate with Portuguese sustainable initiatives. On September 2018 we started to manage the Holidays and Rentals business, in a partnership with Pure Portugal.

About the Pure Portugal Partnership

Pure Portugal aim is to bring people back to the land and to encourage sustainable practices to enhance the environmental, social and economic life in Portugal, transforming areas back into thriving communities. Pure Portugal advertises properties for sale and Tiny homes in Portugal. Is dedicated to helping people along every step of their journey to living the good life, so also gives support through a professional services directory and support you marketing your courses and workshops.
We are connected to a big community of people who are looking to start a new life in Portugal. So, many of them use our Holidays and Rentals website to stay a few days and take a first impression from our country and/or for visit some properties for sale. Others come for a few months / a year to feel the country, build connections and see if they would really like to live here.
We have a very active facebook group, with more than 19,000 members, where the community share every day tips about how to live in Portugal. Once you are advertising your holiday/rental accommodation with us, we will promote your listing on this and other social media channels.
As you may have guessed from our name, we put particular emphasis on the traditional and natural aspects of both the area we work in and the properties we advertise. Many of the accommodations we advertise are built and/or renovated using traditional methods and local materials. Many of them also incorporate environmentally friendly design, alternative energy systems, and grow – or are suitable for growing – organic produce. We advertise farm stays, eco-hotels, country cottages, camping / glamping, town houses, venue hire, house sitting / work exchange opportunities and more!

Advertising Short and Long Term Rentals

We’re an online advertising portal and publicize holiday and rental properties on behalf of owners or mediators (we’re not Estate Agents).
Our role is limited to publishing advertising provided by owners & mediators and providing a venue for communications about a property. We are not responsible for, and do not engage in, brokering or leasing advertised properties. Owners are responsible for the accuracy of their listings, please confirm any information (including pricing) seen in adverts with the owners before making agreements.

Internet Business

We are an internet-based business, so we have no physical office.
We’re in this business to enable us to live our dream, not to make huge profits - we are constantly travelling, doing housesitting, meeting sustainable projects and people - for this reason we use the email to connect with you.
If you would like to be in touch with us, please email us to team@pureportugalholidays.com
We are looking forward to hear from you!
