Re: Pool tiles

be careful how much you pay per Sq.mtr... seen some crazy rip off prices around.

and avoid glass tiles...

Re: When can you pull out? selling a property in Portugal

WHY?, you ask.. some people just don't want pay - either out of principal or for financial reasons. the whole god damn thing is a con anyway.. so I understand not...

Re: Faro Airport

another piece of advice... if you are travelling to the airport on the N125 - add at least another 1-2 hours onto your journey. there are road works all along it.
