Re: Jardin do Farol

Fair enough. Just a thought. We certainly had no complaints and we'll be going back there in few days. What I found a bit confusing about some of the comments was the reference to Carlos's second wife and a waiter who had left. All the staff in attendance yesterday were the people we have become fa...

Car Hire - INTERRENT

I have hired cars through Economy Car Rentals for 10 years now, this year I was put with a company called INTERRENT! They have office on the road into the airport. Has anyone had bad experiences with this company?? The car we collected was in very good condition, the usual quick visual check was mad...

Re: Tolls!

Yet to experience the new A22 tolls?

Will do next month, sounds like there may be even less traffic on A22 so an additional 5 euros each way to get us from and to airport will be well spent?

Re: April Newsletter

Thanks -

Very informative although I have to smile at your reference to 'dark long winter days'! Think you should spend a winter in the UK and really experience such days?

Re: Price Reductions

We fell in love with Carvoeiro and the Algarve 8 years ago and decided to buy an apartment 5 years ago - we were fortunate as our purchase was long-term for a 'lifestyle' with investment being very much a secondary consideration. Delighted with our decision and so pleased that we did not just buy 'a...

Re: coming back for the first time in years

Compared to the UK you have nothing to worry about!

One of the reasons we love the Algarve is the feeling of generally being safe and secure at any time day or night!

Enjoy!

Re: The Square

Well lets hope they don't get anyone to listen to them, the new square is such an improvement, I agree the traffic route is silly and needs looking at but the rest is lovely, it has given the square a cleaner image and as you say there are lots of places to sit down and enjoy watching the world go ...

Re: The new square

You will see the metal posts All over the Algarve now, They are the only prctical way to keep the cars off the pavements. In the town where I live in the UK we have posts to keep cars off pavements which fit in perfectly well with their surroundings!! There surely has to be a more suitable product ...
