Furniture removal

I need to get some old furniture removed (it's beyond selling etc)and I've been told that the Camara will remove a small number of items from the property (which is what happens in the UK). Is this true? How easy is it to arrange? Presumably the alternative is a skip? I will probably also need to do...

A Rede

If that's the restaurant at the end of all the main 'block' of restaurants on Estrada do Farol on the way up the hill on the left, then the answers 'yes' it was a fortnight ago and busy. I made a mental note that it needed trying out in the future.

If not ignore this!

Post boxes

Having finally got the keys to the property that I completed on last month, I have discovered that I have a key to a post box in a group by the side of the road (I'm sure there is a name for these but I don't know it). Do I need to tell the correios that I have taken it over from the previous owner?...

Is it easy to find Cozequipa in Lagoa? Their website gives an address but I don't know where the road is and excursions to cvo at the moment sadly tend to be long weekends so the less time spending looking for places the better.

Thanks in anticipation.

New Golf Courses

I agree with you Ant1969. I weighed it up at the time of making the offer and decided that there would still be green spaces etc I was suspicious when I saw the improved road to Porches (on the road from the International School) as I suspect that will be the access. for development. We'll have to s...

New golf courses

When I was viewing properties to buy earlier this year, someone mentioned to me that there was a possibility of a golf course being built along the cliffs at Albandeira. The area I was looking at was Caramujeira/Albandeira so it was of particular interest. ...

Shutters

All the windows have either wooden shutters or some sort of wrought iron work but there are 3 patio doors with no shutters of any kind and I'm keen to install some shutters. Can anyone advise me what is available and where/who...
