golf courses are one of the best places, there are 2 at lagos and it would be worth visiting Alto club at Alvor

There is not one central hangout and to be honest I hope we don't get one!

There is nothing like creating a "colonial" ghetto to get people whinging about a place and bad mouthing the locals!

As previously commented upon in this and previous threads on this subject golf courses are a good place to start.

Well when someone turns up looking to start a new life in retirement contacts are very useful. It takes time to settle in & a little help would be appreciated, must be the same for everyone at first.

There is plenty of expat contact on the web in the Algarve.

However, in Lagos, there is not really one place where all expats pass through, unlike the German community that has Winnie's Backerei, Lidl and the Saturday market at the Mercado do Levante where most Germans pass through on a regular basis.
