Today i received an e-mail about Gois the nearest town to me being ranked in the top 10% of Portugal and below is the e-mail as i received it. It's nice to know i have chosen an area that is seen as being of particular interest in a University study.
Góis in the top 10% of Portugal – it’s official!
According to an article in the Diário de Coimbra today, 3rd January 2013, Góis has been listed in the top 30 districts of Portugal for quality of life, out of a total of 308.
Although this comes as no surprise to those of us already living here it is always gratifying to gain recognition, and the study by the Universidade da Beira Interior is an evaluation of social and economic well-being of the whole country. Coimbra, our nearest city, ranks a high 5th in the study.
Tempting though it is to keep our beautiful area a secret, we would like to extend an invitation to you to come and explore the Góis region for yourselves, and enjoy the pure air, beautiful scenery, and friendly generosity that keep the local residents smiling…
