Cvo in Times paper re rentals

Nice pic of cvo beach in the Travel doctor section of The Times newspaper today: warning of excessive fees by HomeAway (taken over Owners Direct), AirB&B etc. Ref my posts a couple of years ago advocating new company SimplyOwners.net. This company set out to replace what had been the successful form...

Re: SEF forms.

Yes, we provide this information for all our paying guests. The info goes to Tax Angels, the finance agents/accountants that submit our tax returns and who also send this info re guests to the relevant department. I’m sure someone (Biffa?) will clarify who the form has to go to if you can’t find thi...

Gum Tree new restaurant

Excellent new restaurant just behind Brady’s Irish bar off restaurant Hill. Not that cheap (20E for speciality pork and clams dish) but delicious. Nice peaceful outside dining area round the pool. Just as well that they have a guy standing on the street inviting people to come and try it or we would...

Re: Tennis

I think QdP would be happy for your custom - don’t know what the charge would be but it’s got to be less than the main tennis club as the QdP courts are not in very good condition. In response to our requests for the net tape to be mended on at least one of the courts (which did eventually happen) t...

Modas Carlos linen/towels Lagoa

Don’t know how I have never come across this shop before. (Apparently they have been there for 50yrs!) Great aladdin’s Cave of a place with large selection of towels, bed linen and furnishings. Have just ordered a load of replacement stuff for our villa. They even sewed hanging up loops onto the T-t...

Re: Charity Walk & Lunch : Saturday 6 January 2018

Thanks very much to Su and Mike for organising the walk and such gorgeous weather this morning - sunshine and clear blue skies followed by excellent 7.50E lunch. Very handy to be shown the route ‘over the top’ which we hadn’t done before - fabulous views across to Monchique hills. Look forward to se...

Re: Monarch

Yes, really sad. Have just spent much of today trying to help a family who were due to be staying in our villa for the October half term holiday - alternative flights are now priced at double what they originally paid - so they may decide to cancel the whole holiday.

Re: Bike Hire

What a missed opportunity (and an enormous waste of money): We tried to use the Bewegen Lagos e-bikes from the Carvoeiro beach kiosk today - complete failure. It all sounds very organised on the website, we downloaded the app no problem but when we came to enter the bike number in order to receive a...

Re: Ryanair flights Luton and Manchester

Hoping it is not too early to breathe a sigh of relief........Ryanair have just posted a list of all the flights that will be cancelled over the next month on their website and, unless I haven't looked carefully enough, flights to and from Faro do not seem to be there - Phew! What a shame however fo...

Ryanair flights Luton and Manchester

We've been watching the Ryanair news re their latest example of arrogant disregard for their customers with some concern: We avoided using Ryanair for many years just because of their previous reputation for messing customers about and only recently braved booking with them again. Having arriving in...

Re: Mattress topper

Can't remember the exact name but there is a linen and textiles place ina small run of warehouse type outlets on the RH side of the N125 soon after the Armacao de Pera motorway junction, (coming from cvo). We got mattress toppers, decent sized pillows, towels etc here. Closer than IKEA!
