Re: Saturday night in cvo

Sorry John, we've ignored you. Possibly because we don't know the answer but there's bound to be something happening in town, so maybe a "trawl" is in order?

You should know, you drop them off in an old minibus every morning :)

Re: Is it worth buying or renting

Well we just about break-even on our place and contribute towards employment for a fair few Portuguese. We don't go out in the summer, so we get good bookings at top wack and we have use of the place in the colder months.

Re: I've been playing with some photos.

Remember you will need to pay the condo fees anyway if you want your guests to be able to use the facilities. They are pretty strict on it now.

Re: Changes to the reporting of letting income

Or, you can use a company such as Sovereign as your fiscal rep and for monthly reporting, etc.
Thanks. That's the plan, I wasn't sure how much time there was.

Re: Changes to the reporting of letting income

Sorry if this has already been covered but is there a deadline for getting this up and running. It looks like we will need to get a company to do this for us and take over as our fiscal rep. Did you get my email address @biffa?

Re: Handling rubbish

We've left all sorts by the bins. If it's still there when the binmen come they take it.

When I first saw the title of this thread I thought it referred to the offerings from our latest member :)

Re: I've been playing with some photos.

Hi laserblazer, I am thinking of taking out a contract to let with qdp for next year, do you have any advice. Expect them to take most of the earnings :) They do provide a complete service though. We only use our place out of season and they manage to fill it during the summer months. They are also...

When the gauge did start to drop, it initially fell like a stone. Next time, I could get the car with it still showing full but at ...

Re: Lunatic staff at A Rede

We went out for a meal last night and ended at the top of the hill. The waiters at A Rede were ridiculous, calling out and singing badly. I just ignored them and went to Vimar for a very nice meal with well-adjusted staff. If anyone from A Rede looks in on these posts, your waiters are not doing you...

Google maps

We had two close encounters with the camera car this week. Once in the 125 at Porches and again at Monte Carvoeiro. New street maps soon.
