Re: 2015 Automatic Opel Corsa

Thank you Steve

Lovely car almost everything I would want except for the price. Even the same brand I have been looking at but it’s way over what I want to pay.

I will keep looking and thank you for replying.

Chef’s Kitchen

Been there twice now in the month of October. It’s so nice to have more space and very comfortable seating with, on both occasions, lovely food. We were warmly welcomed by Harald and his staff. Prices are slightly up from Ele & Ela, I thought, but the surroundings make it worth it. We wish them well.

Re: Parakeets on Vale do Milho

We live in South of England and I almost bought one them about 10 years ago from a breeder in the UK. No, I have never seen them in VDM where we have our house. I would be thrilled to see one or some! When I researched them in UK, they can be very clever and can live a long life. Where are you in VD...

Anyone selling a reliable car?

We are fed up renting cars at higher and higher costs. Is anyone selling a good reliable car 10 yrs or under old that has been regularly maintained and is in good condition. Perhaps you are returning to your home country and want to sell the car before you go. We would need a five door economy size ...

Ferry from St-Nazaire France to Gijon Spain

Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone had ever used the ferry crossing from St-Nazaire France to Gijon Spain? It is an overnighter and the total sailing time is about 15 hours. We usually drive over in May for a fair number of weeks and thought we might try this crossing. I am not a good sailer ...

Overnight stops from Le Havre to CVO

Can anyone recommend overnight hotels from Le Havre to CVO? We would prefer to travel via Bordeaux and take two nights, three days to get down. I know there are lots of hotels in Bordeaux but we think it would be better to try and get round the city and stay somewhere just South on the first night a...

Re: Directions from Lisbon Airport to Algarve

Thanks Michael. No I had not checked the FAQ and on doing so all the information was there. The good news is that my family made the journey today and arrived at the house earlier on with no trouble atall. Thanks again.

Re: Directions from Lisbon Airport to Algarve

Thank you so much. I always found the big roundabout that you approach after the airport with all the signs very confusing and did take the wrong route once. We will have young children in the car and want to get on the road South asap. It would help if we take the correct exit first time. Any hints?

Re: Silves Medieval Fayre

Thanks for this info. Always known of this but don't know anyone who has gone. Where do you park? If we take the children, 7 and 4 yrs, would it be too much for them? Do you have to buy tickets? Basically - is it worthwhile going? Any hints would be appreciated.

Re: Buying Electrical Goods

Can anyone recommend a supplier for LCD televisions at competative prices? I have had a look at the website of Worten and Radio Particular. In common with most things, due to the poor GBP, electrical items are more or less the same price in Portugal as the UK. Sometimes, in fact, they are more expen...
