Re: Vimar restaurant

That’s great to hear. Vimar was always a favourite but we had also experienced a downturn recently. Can’t wait to get back again and try it out for myself 🤞😄

Re: August holiday in Carvoeiro

Hi, the following was taken from the FCO website (updated today) - basically a temp check. “You will be subject to health screening on arrival. Your temperature will be checked and if it is high or you show signs of being unwell, you will be referred to the health authorities”. Hope this is helpful.

Re: how to to pay finances bills on-line ?

The easiest way is to get a Portuguese bank account and you can use the banks online site or App to pay bills. We use Millenium and everything is converted to English and the process is very simple.

Re: Courier / Postage from UK

I just carried a single club over with me - it lay horizontally in the overhead locker (it was an iron and not a ‘wood’) my thoughts were that it was no different to a walking stick - all be it a long one. I flew with easyJet and the crew did not bat an eyelid

Re: Carvoeiro on my mind

I’m planning a visit in July - does anyone know how things are going in Carvoeiro? I’ve spoke with Helder (@Rocha Brava) but have not been able to contact others such as Leib from ‘Happys’. Also, how are things going with the redevelopment of the Grand Cafe? Thanks

Re: a good local bank?

I’m not sure about the opening hours at the moment due to the lockdown but we would definitely recommend Millenium (pink logo) branch just down from bakery. We went to the dancing horse and were told the same - we could only have an account if we took all of their products. Millenium have an account...

Re: Schengen visa rules

Hi, Up to the end Dec this year there will be no change. Issues such as these are being discussed and will hopefully be resolved before the end of the transition period.

Re: Schengen visa rules

Hi, this has nothing to do whatsoever with Brexit as the 90 day max stay has always been in place. More information can be found here https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/ A Schengen visa is a short-stay visa that allows a person to travel to any members of the Schengen Area, per stays up to 90 days for...

Re: New Yeras Eve

Hi, My wife and I were there with two friends. It’s the first time we’ve come over for New Year. The atmosphere was brilliant, the band and music great and the fireworks were amazing. Most of the crowd seemed to be locals and the beer tents were manned by local bars (6 bar was one). A great night an...

Re: ELVIS is in the house !

I agree, I was hoping he would stop and let people enjoy the music - the orchestra were brilliant. Shame.
