We live in the Rossio de Sao Joao area. The skin centre is right in the centre of the town.

Hi, I'm a PA (24hours a day 7 days a week live in one) and the family that I work for have just bought a villa not far from Lagos. I'm left with the task of finding English speaking people for various help, if anyone knows anyone or is interested themselves in the following things I would be really grateful, all really need to be English speaking as we haven't even started the basic Potuguese lessons:
Beauty thereapist to do massages, pedicures, facials etc in the house
Cleaner for when we are around (it's a big place and lots of friends will be coming out to stay)
Someone to look out for the place when we are not there
I would be really grateful for any help on where to look.

Pommiechild here again: Can anyone recommend any good electrical shops, we need to buy everything you can think of electrical and only have about 10 days in August to do the shopping !! Also any garden furniture shops, wooden and rattan type. I wish now I hadn't offered so quickly to do the research on these.

There is Martins in Lagos which sell good quality electrical gear and will deliver and install. They are not cheap, but they are reliable. Address is Estrada Ponta da Piedade, Lote 27, Loja A 8600-512 Lagos. Telephone 282 762 572. If you want to drive there go on the main road into Lagos past the Intermarche and straight on until you come to a roundabout with a huge ball on it. Take the left exit, follow the road straight down and Martins is on your left on the corner.

There are places like Wortons, in Portimao which are cheaper, it all depends on what you are looking for.
