Re: Covid 19 Isolation

This may help - alternative airlines.com are offering free cancellation protection in the event of an airline cancelling a booking after you have booked it through them. Whilst this does not protect your holiday it does at least ensure you are not losing your air fare. Hope this may help.

Re: All Restaurants

I believe some restaurants are doing takeaways and some doing also home delivery.

It would be helpful both to us and to them to have som info on this.

Re: Look on the bright side !

At my age I need sustenance after walking one way along the boardwalk to give me the energy to walk back. At least that's my story if GNR question me !! Having said that we have not seen a single officer anywhere in CVO this week. 50 per of the Faro force are in quarantine since one proved positive !!

Look on the bright side !

In these dire times we must avoid getting depressed and look on the bright side of things. Aren't we lucky having fresh sea air and board walks for getting our permitted exercise. OK so the restauranrs are closed but taking a picnic basket down to the shore and taking deep breaths of the ozone canno...

Postal service

We have not seen a postman for over a week. My wife says she read somewhere that services were being reduced but deliveries seem to have stopped completely. I am expecting some important documents from U.K. and concerned what has happened to them and when I will get them.

Anybody any knowledge ?

Re: Covid 19 Isolation

The only shops open are food and pharmacies and CVO is like a ghost town. The weather is fine - 21c today with blue sky - but in general not, at the moment ideal for your holiday even if you can find a flight.

Re: Carvoeiro in October

First time we cameto CVO in October we had 7 days of unbroken blue sky, so the following year when we saw a special offer of 10 days for the price of 7 we naturally took it. It rained continually for 9 of the 10 days and so heavy that the garden of our villa in Areas dos Moinhos was washed into the ...

Paddle board

My wife, Carol, has just started playing paddleboard - similar to squash but with a softer ball and paddles rather than racquets - and wondered if there were 2 ladies who would like to join to make up a doubles. It is slower than squash, less likely to precipitate a heart attack and suitable for mor...

Logs

Our usual supplier has retired. Any recommendation for good quality logs at a reasonable price - 1 to 2 tonnes ?

Se Mi Xo

I notice that the Thai Elephant is now the Se Mi Xo restaurant - anyone brave enough to have tried it ?

First time I saw it, driving past quickly, I thought it was the Mi Se Xo - possibly an oriental gentleman's club :lol:
