British by birth, moved to Portugal about 26 years ago with my Angolan wife. We have two daughters, the eldest lives in Manchester, England and our 19-year-old goes to university in Lisbon and still lives with us. It is a bi-lingual household (though my Portuguese isn't perfect). We have dinner together as a family every night (without the distraction of television) and we always try to eat "proper food" (fresh meat, fish, vegetables, salads, etc). We are a very harmonious family. Since our eldest daughter left home we have sensed something of a void, so our accommodation would suit somebody who not only wants to value their privacy in their own space, but also interact with us in a family environment.
