Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Alyson Sheldrake was born in Birmingham in 1968. She has always loved art and painting, although she found little time for such pleasures, working full-time after graduation. She joined the Devon and Cornwall Police in 1992 and served for thirteen years, before leaving to work in the field of education. She became the Director of Education for the Church of England in Devon in 2008.

Once her husband Dave retired from the Police, their long-held dream of living in the sun could become a reality. Alyson handed in her notice, and with her dusty easel and set of acrylic paints packed and ready to move, they started their new adventure living in the beautiful Algarve in Portugal in 2011.

She is now an accomplished and sought-after artist working alongside her husband, Dave, a professional photographer. Being able to bring their much-loved hobbies and interests to life has been a wonderful bonus to their new life in the Algarve.

Alyson is the editor of Portugal Letter magazine, and a feature writer for the Algarve’s Tomorrow magazine. She is the author of the award-winning and popular Algarve Blog, and is also a keynote speaker at the annual ‘Live and Invest in Portugal’ international conference.

She is the author of Kat the Dog - The remarkable tale of a rescued Spanish water dog, and the Algarve Dream series of travel memoirs. Alyson was also the author/curator of the Travel Stories series of anthologies.

She lives in the Algarve, Portugal with her husband, Dave, a professional photographer, and Kat the Dog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you like meeting interesting people in a sunny clime? Read this!
By RONALD MACKAY on September 20, 2021
Author Alyson Sheldrake has a knack for bringing out the best in people. Or perhaps, for finding the best people living on the sunny Algarve coast of Portugal.

In “A New Life in the Algarve” as score of ex-pats, many from the UK and most seeking sun and a simpler, cheaper way of life for their advancing years, tell, one by one, how they pursued and are now living the Algarve dream.

If you have ever thought about pulling up stakes and switching the northern grey skies for the southern European sun, read this book. In it, you will discover how to go about it and why you may succeed. You will even find out what some of the downsides may be. Forearmed is forewarned!

If all you want is to dream, then Alyson Sheldrake’s “A New Life in the Algarve, Portugal” will provide all the stimulant you require.
