'The Bill's Inspector Burnside, a fan of 'Fires of Portugal'

Fire specialists 'Fires of Portugal' have already obtained quite a following in their seven years serving the Algarve, and amongst their hundreds of satisfied customers is one rather familiar face, a well known chap who most of you may know has Inspector Burnside. Actor Chris Ellison formerly of 'The Bill'.
Chris has been a friend of Geoff Waller and Carol von Rosen, founders of Fires of Portugal, since he bought a house near the couple (with their help) some eight years ago. Fitting in very well with his converted country house, the former 'Inspector Burnside' has a 'Villager fire', one of Fires of Portugal's most popular models, to keep warm.
Geoff and Carol (Who Geoff describes as his partner in crime) have friends and family living all around them in Salir, and they too have the Villagers fires - 12 in this little hamlet alone!
For freestanding gas and wood burning stoves Geoff uses Villager and Arrow agencies - Both ranges imported from the UK and for which he is a national agent.
However, for those who prefer the more contemporary inset style, the locally manufactured 'Fogo Montanha' range offers something for everyone, in both wood and gas.
Geoff Walter took over Fires of Portugal in June 2001, and, with his 'hands-on' approach, has built up a small company with a big reputation, importing and installing the very best in wood burning stoves and fires.
Geoff enjoys the challenge of fitting these into the many shapes and sizes of the Portuguese idea of a fireplace, and believes they are the best on the market.
He moved to Portugal from Sheffield in 1987, and has been fitting wood burning stoves and gas fires across the Algarve and Alentejo for the last 7 years. Has he served his apprenticeship in the plumbing and heating trade, he is more than qualified for this transition. Geoof also provides through, quick-and-clean chimney sweeping and smoke-testing services. Advice on all aspects of the installation and the best possible quotation is offered, and, with the help of the company's own reliable builder, other small works can be undertaken.
Fires of Portugal will fit the fire, test the installation for smoke leaks, and offer advice on using the fire to its optimum capability.
The 'Fires of Portugal' office is situated in Salir, on the EN 124, north of Loulé. For more information, contact Fires of Portugal!
