our friend, builder Filipe Francisco who renovated Casa Lagares. There
are many properties for sale, and it's often cheaper to renovate an old
house than buy a new one - especially if you are buying a new one via
an estate agent. Portugal properties go at bargain prices compared with
Spain and France. Why not spend a week looking, and stay at Casa
Lagares rather than a hotel? We'll put you in touch with Filipe, who
will show you the ropes and lots of properties.
