Re: Fabrica Velha apartments

Hi. We have owned a townhouse here for 5 years and really enjoy it. Big benefits such as easy access to the beach, centre, restaurants and private gated car parking to the rear. We are not full time residents due to UK business but have a licence to let, which is very successful, especially in the l...

Re: Elite Rentals

As owners of a house in Carvoeiro we use Elite to manage our lettings. They give an exceptionally friendly, reliable and professional service and I would not hesitate to recommend any properties managed by them. Feedback left by clients often comment on the exceptional cleanliness of the property wh...

Re: Bus from Lagoa to seville

Hi Tricky. We went to Seville by coach last year using the Spanish coach firm ALSA. However we boarded at Faro airport which is one of their pick up points. Don't think they stop in Lagoa though. Have a check on their website. Good luck.

Re: Ryanair flights Luton and Manchester

Much relief here also. We are on the 15.50 from East Midlands to Faro on Friday. Got a new fridge/freezer being delivered on Saturday. Could be fun trying to rearrange/cancel delivery with Radio Popular from the UK.

Re: Capital Gains & Lawyers

Not sure what the exact legal position is but this was our scenario a couple of years ago when we sold a property making a sizeable capital gain. Our solicitor had POA and was our formal fiscal rep. He said he had to retain sufficient to cover the CGT when it was due as he is responsible for any of ...

Re: Estate Agent?

Would recommend Vernon. Their office is just off the square near the bottom of 'restaurant hill'. Ask for India or Claudia. We bought our present place a couple of years ago through them and only last month sold an apartment we have had for a number of years. Excellent service.

Re: New Year in Porto

Never stayed at New Year but have visited several times. Always stayed at the Grande Hotel do Porto. Pretty central (almost opposite the famous Majestic café), near to a metro stop direct from the airport and the ground floor is like stepping back over 100 years. Rooms are good and very clean. Have ...

Re: WiFi

We had Cabovisao at our old place in Mato Serrao, which was quite good. After moving house Cabovisao cable did not extend to our new property but Meo did. Swapped to Meo same day. The engineer even stayed late to replace what he thought was some dodgy cable. Excellent service at 35 Euros per month (...

Re: Tv question

When all, or almost all, satellite channels went we moved to internet, firstly with Cabo and now with Meo. Using the IPTV box we get all UK channels and loads of others. Wifi is strong and connection is fine throughout the house. Problem is that as far as I am aware you will have to pay for the inte...

Re: Amazon Fire stick

Thanks maccasa. We are coming over tomorrow so no time now to do more. Will see how it goes and take it from there. We are on Meo cable which gives good speed so that should not be a problem.

Amazon Fire stick

Hi. Has anyone had experience of using Amazon Fire TV stick in Portugal please? Could be useful on television in the bedrooms where we do not have IPTV. Thanks.

Re: Security key cutting

This sounds like the chap Les told us about, near the Financas. Drove round but did not find it. I will give it another go with your instruction. Thanks Geoff.
