  1. Qta do Lorde has always been a white elephant. Can’t really see anybody making a success of it unless there is a big increase in tourism on the island generally, and a greater demand for rooms on the back of it, which doesn’t appear to be happening at the moment.

  2. The ghost village QdL was a very bad idea as an investment from the start. I stayed there some years ago, and felt very much isolated. Several buildings In the complex were unfinished. Once you have done the walk out on the east peak, you are so to say finished with it.
    But the main problem is the horrible noice every fith minute from the aircrafts coming in for landing at FNC.
