Just to add that I checked out the restaurant the other day. It's been refurbished and looks good. The owner said it would be very helpful if people would pre-order before the walk...so, if you want lunch, please stop there en route at about 0930.

Walk 20 Nov 2018 : Silves Farmhouse. CLOSED

Walk is now closed as we have enough people. An invigorating walk through the backhills of Silves , with quite a lot of ups and downs, some quite steep, but with some lovely views. Please note the walk is on a Tuesday as the restaurant is now closed on a monday. Degree of Difficulty ( scale 1:5 ) : ...

Russell couldn't get used to the clocks going back, so turned up early at 0800 to enjoy a madronha and coffee with the locals and then do an extra walk around the menhirs! The rest of us turned up at the recommended time & all 17 enjoyed a bracing 2 h 45 mins wa...

Re: A blast from the past

as well as Jophil Bar for lunch, lovely bean stew with whelks today. Bread, olives, sardine paste, house dessert, bica and red wine all for €8.50. And free wi-fi.
Is that sunday only or every day? Never seen a menu there.

Re: south coast walks

Hi My Algarvian walking expert says : "I don´t recognise any of these, but they all sound to be well south of the fire zone. If they have found them on Wikiloc they should be OK. You can refer them to my www.onfootinthealgarve.com if you like! " The website referred to gives details of lots of walks...
