AND WHY PORTUGAL
We, Marianne en Bert Snijder, are a Dutch family who migrated 21 years ago to Portugal leaving the rat race already going on in Holland. With our daughter Eline, now 13 years old, we run our rural tourism Monte Horizonte with 6 private houses and a swimming pool. But main business the last years was birding. As a fully licensed bird guide, I, Bert, can go to places where you normally can not come which gives you the opportunity to see rare birds.
Portugal, but especially the Alentejo region, is an amazing place with few but friendly people, low criminality, very good food and wines, deserted beaches, mild climate with 300 sunny days a year and a clean ocean.
Now you know why we decided to go.
