Hi,

We have just bought a house in Figueira da Foz and need some help in locating a reputable building company. Anyone have any ideas for me? Our portuguese is not brilliant :oops: so if they spoke a little english it would help a lot!

Any movement on this? Have you spoken to your neighbours? They are usually the best source of information. If not, and I know this is a bit obtuse, but have a look at ownersdirect.co.uk. There is a house in Figueira, no: 654, that is owned by a Portuguese/British couple and they are based in the Coimbra area by the looks of their phone number.

If you don't have any luck, I'm just the other side of Penacova, and my Portuguese isn't too bad!

Cheers
Emma

Hi Emma,

Something just told me to check out the Portugal board and there you were! Small world! :lol:

Hi KerrieLouie,

Welcome from me! :D I haven't looked in around here for ages. I'll try to get back to you with some info. I'm living in Portugal but further north, about 20 km north of Porto in Santo Tirso. I'll ask around today and hopefully get back to you soon.

Have you checked out the British Expat forum yet? Great place, loads of good stuff going on over there. :D
