Good evening,

I am travelling over on 20/12 for a week to have a look around and also check out some places that have been recommended to me. I am hoping to move from uk as a digital nomad, been and had a look at some of Spain but not sure it’s what I’m looking for. I love nature and I ride (horses)  and am looking for somewhere not so touristy but where I can also meet people and make some connections. Looking to rent, ideally with some outside space as I love my garden and being outside. Am early 40’s. if anyone had any advice at all on location, movinG, anything at all I would be very grateful 

Many thanks in advance


Sandra

Tavira is less touristy. Lagos has lots of digital nomads! Lots of country around most algarve towns but you need a car then. There is a digital nomad group in Lagos that sends me emails. They meet up a lot. 

Lagos is a younger crowd and trendy. Tavira has more retirees. Alvor has a big UK expat group so does ALBUFEIRA.

Thank you so much for your reply, that’s very helpful. I was told Tavira might be a good place but I didn’t realise it was mostly retirees so alvor or Lagos may be a better fit so that’s really valuable information. I will be sure to visit both when I come over at Christmas.

Thank you again for your help 🙏
