Re: DJ

Hi Von Von, Bradley is a singer and a brilliant one at that. He did two of the weddings we went to last year, both very different, and delivered on both occasions.

The number I have for him is 912 730 102 but can double-check. Also Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/BradleyOConnorMusic?fref=ts

Re: anybody travelling to the Algarve challenge event

Re: Rascals?

Yes a local English family took it over earlier in the year and it really is lovely. Chris is in the kitchen and makes everything from scratch. They do a popular Fish & Chip Friday with hand-battered cod and hand-cut chips and a Sunday Roast which I'm yet to try. Adam is at the bar and does excellen...

Re: supermarket

Yes the closest one with restaurant/take-away area is in Portimão. There's also a Jumbo Pão de Açucar closer to Gramacho, also with a small café area like the Pingo Doce

Re: Recommendation for beach east of Faro

Praia Verde is also lovely, long white sandy beach bordered by pine trees. Last time I went I visited a family beach restaurant called Pezinhos n'Areia, before it was refurbished

When we get take-away chicken from Vimar João always asks if we want it with piri-piri, so assume they serve it without too
