After paying euro15 far too many times for adaptors (UK and Canada to Europe) I found them for euro5!! at a tiny store in Amoreiras shopping. None of the usual extreme plastic packaging, just a large bucketful of them for a third of the price at a sweet tiny store called "Bricolage", near Pao de Azucar on the ground floor.
Hiya, Can anyone help with some information on insulation regulations in Portugal. We currently live in Cyprus and when our property is sold we are looking to move to Portugal. Are all houses after a certain date insulated. Are renovations insulated and new builds. Have seen a couple of properties we may be interested in in the Coimbra area but when I email estate agents to ask about insulation they just reply that they do not know. Not very helpful I must admit.We are looking to rent in the area for 6 months before we buy.Thanks in advanceLynn - Larnaca, Cyprus
Hi,We're looking to furnish a new apartment but don't know where to find big furniture outlets in the Lisbon area where we can buy a sofa, table and chairs etc. We'll order bed and mattress from IKEA, but sofas etc are pretty expensive at IKEA.We could drive around areas like Loures and Alfragide, but we're not in Lisbon till the last week of July so wondered if anyone could help us beforehand so we can plan.....so much to plan!Also, although this is Home & Garden, if you know any garages in the Lisbon area with lots of second-hand cars that you would trust, please could you recommend them!Many thanks for reading and sharing!
We're having a really difficult time finding out who's called us as our phone doesn't keep a record or we don't know how to get the info. I'm wanting to get an answering machine to take our messages and to keep a record of who's called. Does anyone know if Worten or a similar type store carries these?
