DRUM ROLL, PLEASE! YOU GOT...
You tend to lean on the introvert side as you value your personal space and the time spent alone (or with a small group of friends) doing the things that excite you the most. As a creative soul and a bit of an idealist, spending time around Nature inspires you in the many aspects of your life, from work to leisure.
Time spent in the quietude of the mountains and forests, hiking and exploring is cherished valuable time for you.
Nowhere better for you than the Portuguese Interior Center-North and Trás dos Montes (literally translating to “behind the Mountains”) surrounded by the most beautiful National Parks in the country (dare we say, the world?): Parque do Gerês and Serra da Estrela are just some of the wonderous beauty in the Interior-North.
The city of Bragança is a quiet, cheap and a very safe city to live in. All of the Bragança District is filled with hidden natural gems perfect for those who love to explore all the old and traditional villages surrounded by nature. Some towns in Bragança worth exploring include: Miranda do Douro and Mirandela
Keep in mind that old villages, typical of this location, usually have old properties for sale that will definitely need renovations. Another thing to consider is that because of how isolated some of these villages are, you will have to drive to most commodities and healthcare facilities.
Vila Real is also perfect for those who love to be surrounded by nature but still want to be close enough to bigger cities, like Porto, Braga and Guimarães. Vila Real is an historical city (Vila Real means Royal Village), so you'll see many historical buildings and older houses with traditional ornaments. Like Bragança, cost of living here is fairly cheaper compared to the neighboring cities mentioned before but differs in the accessibility to commodities and healthcare facilities, asit offers first-rate healthcare with both public and private hospitals and dental clinics
Some other towns to consider in Vila Real include: Chaves, Montalegre, Peso da Régua and Vila Pouca de Aguiar
Going a bit further South into the Center-Interior of Portugal, there are many cities to consider:
Viseu is a medieval city located in the Center, between Aveiro and the most famous National Park Serra da Estrela. Viseu is a gorgeous city surrounded by natural beauty, perfect for those who love that European lively cafe culture and to hit the forested-mountains during their time off.
Some other towns to consider in Viseu include: Lamego, Castro Daire and Vila Nova de Paiva
Other cities to consider: Guarda

Hello there! I'm Ana Caramujo
Catch you're Portuguese Dream with us
Savvy Cat came to be because I found the way the Portuguese Real Estate market operates extremely dysfunctional and figured I could do things in a way I think is fair and allows for a high standard of service quality for buyers.
OUR BUSINESS MODEL was designed to provide the best possible service to the buyer, and make sure our clients know exactly what they are getting into prior to purchase.
We have exclusivity with all our clients and will show our them everything, including off market deals we come across, with full transparency.
WHAT WE STAND FOR! Savvy Cat Realty values ethics and as a business we are very concerned with cultural and economic sustainability, our goal is to slow down gentrification by making sure foreign buyers make informed purchases that are not overpriced. We believe this helps both the new expats as they likely spend less plus have a much smoother relocation process with support from local business and the local community as it boosts the economy by bringing cash flow in a sustainable way.
Our Promise, is to help you achieve
... your plans of moving to Portugal!
We are with all our clients at every stage, from advice, planning, research, communication, everything you may need to smooth out your relocation to Portugal.
LOCAL PERSPECTIVE & INSIGHT Countrywide
Another thing that makes us stand out is that we work countrywide, allowing our clients to explore different locations without having to contact different agencies. If you have an ideal and not a location when it comes to property, we will likely be a great fit for your needs, as a big part of our service is to help our client find the best location for them (taking in consideration factors from lifestyle to budget and requirements). This works smoothly because Savvy Cat’s agents are not competing against each other, they are collaborating as a team in order to help our clients to the best of our ability.
TAILORED SERVICES FOR YOUR PERSONAL NEEDS
We provide a lot more service than typical real estate agencies: we support with the visas, renovations, licenses, construction, documentation, opening bank accounts, networking for professionals, we do tours, we do verifications, we work with off market properties, we do reports and much more. Of course in order to be committed to do all this my staff needs to be paid, independently of sale. The system we found for this to work is to have service packages that need to be purchased prior to the property transaction, as a big part of the service will be provided prior to purchase.
Savvy Cat Realty also has Lawyers on payroll and includes legal verification of real estate transactions and documentation as well as visa documentation and process (consultation time is limited by package, Golden Visa applications are not covered – but we do offer discounted rates with some lawyer partners).
