Cape Verde islands: Philippa Clarke explores the 'European Caribbean'

Nov 11, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Mirror.co.uk

Ideally situated off the West Coast of Africa, kept cool from the stifling tropical heat by gentle trade winds, and with mile upon mile of white deserted sand, it was dubbed the "European Caribbean". Sadly, the recession meant that all the early promise of luxurious developments and resort hotels did not happen with the expected speed.

I wish that I would have not ever found out about Cape Verde.
Myself and another 400-500 British Investors stand to loose our life savings thanks to Sambala Developments Ltd based in Charlbury Oxfordshire owned by the Grepne family..our villas should have been finished 3 years ago and we have nothing show for it..

I just wished that the news papers would take our story up,,instead of just the glossy side of Cape Verde.
Have a look at this web page,, actionagainstgrepne.com

A group of investors are suing this lot and will not let go until Grepne is made to pay for his crimes against investors.

Sambala have gone into Liquidation as of 28-05-2014. This can be checked at companies House or any company offering credit checks.

What is interesting they are using the same liquidation company as their builder has used many times ( Paul Nowell ) Banner.
