My name is Larisa. I was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania. I graduated from University in Economics and started my career initially in Accountancy. After having many wonderful holidays here, I decided to stay and start living in Portugal. I moved to Algarve four years ago, and don’t ever look back at my decision to move and live here.
What do you like most about Portugal?
To begin with winter in Portugal is a delightful season with frequent sunshine up and down the country and temperatures that rarely fall below 10ºC. Portuguese people are very nice and easy-going. I learnt that all we really care about is the sun, a drink and a good chat with friends. I appreciate the good quality of life that Portugal offers us. The Portuguese cuisine is fresh and displays delicious and original combinations. Salada de Polvo (Octopus Salad) all seafoods and Carne de Porco à Alentejana (Pork with Clams).
Why do you like working for Portugalproperty.com?
I have always wanted to work in real estate and PortugalProperty.com gave me the opportunity I wanted … to learn, grow and develop in the business. Since joining the company it’s surprising how quickly the team changes into a family, a family dedicated to helping its clients and vendors to deliver the ultimate real estate experience.
What do you like to do when you are not working?
Let me see… I like reading, watching movies and I love cartoons! Shopping of course and spending time with my family and friends whenever I can. I guess it changes depending on the season – in the summertime I love to go to the beach, pool, Water Park and cycling, in the winter, a brisk walk along the beach and a Mulled Wine from many of the fine coffee shops and bars dotted along the coast, while watching the waves break on the seashore
