Re: Cruising down the Douro

We have done the Douro River cruise. Very varied and enjoyable although we didn't recognise much of what we saw in this programme apart from the endless vines growing on the surrounding river banks.

Re: Rain

It can rain now, if it likes. We arrived there on 17th October to light rain and the same thing the next morning, then 13 glorious sunny and warm days and warm nights; still just like summer. Left there yesterday, and although some sunny spells in the morning the weather felt as though it was in the...

Re: Refurbished Tivoli?

To my mind it all looks a bit clinical. Too much white paint, and porters in top hats standing around.

Re: New wooden structure?

I noticed that the ends of some them started to curve towards the sea, and wonder if they are going to be made into walkways to the coast.

Re: Sales Office

Found it by googling it at http://rochabrava.com/en/sales_office.html
They don't appear to advertise details of property without registering with them, though.

Re: Train to ferragudo

Tell you what, though. It doesn't half bounce you around and shake you up. It wouldn't suit my wife who suffers from neck and back problems. It's great fun if you don't suffer from those problems.

Re: O Flamingo

We ate there twice last November and were very impressed with the food and the ambience. Again, unfortunately it was not at all busy and we (and the owner) hoped that by summer it would pick up by the summer. We are coming out in October and very much hope that it will be open then.

Re: Faro Airport

Yes, likewise when we returned home last Saturday. We had allowed 2 hours at the airport, but being held up on the way, by the time we dropped off the hire car we only had 1 hour 45 minutes. After both using the loo we went through baggage inspection, queueing up with about 300 others. Wife then nee...

Re: ATM Machine

I'm glad to see that someone else at Rocha Brava is still alive and kicking as we are coming out to the AGM on April 7th and wouldn't like to be the only ones there.
I was getting worried as there had been no postings since last July!
