We want you to experience the best of Portuguese culture, so Savvy Cat Realty organized this retreat in Évora, the newly elected capital of Culture of Europe for 2027. This amazing city has been making a great effort to recover and preserve historic property. It is one of the most historically relevant cities in Portugal, and was classified as a World Cultural Heritage site in 1986. You will surely be able to experience Portugal's history and culture here!
You know something else amazing about Portugal? FOOD! Our food is world-renowned, and this event will take place on a culinary cruise handpicked by our very foodie CEO to experience the best of Portuguese cuisine. The Alentejo region is particularly well known for great meat and vegetables, but our Mediterranean diet is very diverse, so you will be able to experience a bit of everything, including, of course, options for vegetarians and vegans.
This retreat also includes practical and spiritual guidance for those considering moving to Portugal, such as "How to move to Portugal" and "Where should I live in Portugal: Pros & Cons of Cities and Regions" presentations. You will be able to get clarity from our Savvy Cat Team and CEO as well as from two invited resident expats who will share their experience of living in Portugal with you.
