Re: Easyjet booking changes

I see EasyJet also changing rules on cabin luggage, reducing size and charging to use overhead locker.

Re: Kitchen Fitter

I’ve heard from a couple of people that a chap called Paul Atkins is very good. Not a joiner, a carpenter! Has build kitchens from scratch. Don’t have any contact details but I know he ran the quiz night in Hemingway’s Bar on the out road.

Re: F1.. who needs it!

I quite like F1 and if had been over at my place I’d probably tried to get a ticket for either the main race or a practice session, just to experience the ‘buzz’ of the day. Living in Scotland attending a F1 race in UK would involve a lot more travel and expense. Hope F1 returns to Algarve at a time...

Re: Faro Airport

As a property owner I don’t class myself as a “tourist” when I fly over to Algarve. When there I may look like a “tourist” but I like to act like a local. :D

Re: Faro Airport

A friend arrived in CVO yesterday and wasn’t health checked on arrival at Faro airport. Wasn’t asked for Passenger Locator Form. Only 30 people on Ryanair flight from Edinburgh. Initial impression? Feels safer in CVO than back home as vast majority are adhering to restrictions.

When we first came to the area, we spent about half an hour walking round that area after spotting the Country Club sign on the main road!! I’m a regular at Jophil for their menu of the day lunch.......when I manage to get over!!

New restrictions

Any comments on the new restrictions on going out and about to bars and restaurants? Owners and customers adhering to new rules? Is there much checking by GNR? Just asking.

Re: Faro Airport

Think its a matter of luck as comments on other social media forums suggest there are problems on arrival and departure, especially at Passport Control. When I landed at Faro, as plane headed for stance, I always had a look at whether or not other flights had arrived and passengers were getting off,...

Re: August holiday in Carvoeiro

A friend just back from CVO. Intermarche very good with control measures, comment from my friend was much better than some UK supermarkets. Customers very observant of social distancing and use of face masks. Given Spain now has 2 lock down areas, wonder how long before UK government change Spain’s ...
