Re: Approx taxi cost from Faro to Carvoeiro ?

Hi,
Thanks for the replies.

You will be pleased to know that my initial concerns were unfounded and we have arrived in our villa as expected.

I had forgotten how much we love this place...

All the best,

Approx taxi cost from Faro to Carvoeiro ?

Re: Spa/Massage in CVO

Thanks for the replies.
There are some good options there and I will take a look further.
It's always best to earn some brownie points when on holiday especially with myself being a fisherman and with so much fishing available nearby......
Thanks,

Re: Beach/Rock fishing near CVO

Thanks for that.

Re: Beach/Rock fishing near CVO

Thanks for the update.
Is that from the mark you told me about near the restaurant?
Sounds fun on the boat and its definetly an avenue i will be exploring when i get there. It would be nice to get a boat that would be willing to take my young boy aswell.
Only nine more sleeps to go :)
