Couldn't agree more, with the current volatility of the stock markets, property seems a much safer investment.
And as I mentioned, I love the country, have bought and sold in Portugal before and visit it constantly (two weekends ago I went to Lisbon for a cheeky weekend break).
I'm definately going back to Portugal to live at some stage, just not decided when.
Portugal has so many fantastic things going for it, from the people to the food (even though Tripas à moda do Porto and Cozido à Portuguesa still make me cringe - was introduced to them in a Portuguese school canteen which certainly won't be winning any Michelin stars).
Hi JMBoad, sorry but i have not been here. I will take your advice and next time i invite a client for lunch i will order Alentejo wineHehe Luís, I like Dao but personally I prefer the fruitier wines of the Alentejo - just more my style. I especially like the Trincadeira and Aragonez grape wines (and Bical for white)
Not that there aren't wines from up North which I like, there are many I do - too many to go into posting here about.
