Re: The day after..

Re: Alvor 20109

Our first time in the Algarve was staying at Alto Country Club in Alvor, some 20 years ago. Whilst we now have our own place near Carvoeiro, we usually head to Alvor for a day out. A lot has changed in Alvor but still worth a visit/stay. Hope you enjoy the experience.

Re: Walk CVO to Ferragudo

There was an article in TPN about an upgraded recognised walk from CVO to Ferragudo. Someone put on another social media site that they walked it in 3 hours, I think. At the car park down from the Casabela Hotel Praia Molde??? there was an information board explaining the route.

Re: Ladies football at Algarve Stadium

There was a women's football competition a couple of years ago because I was given the tournament programme. Will look back my collection of 'stuff' and see if I can see who organised. One of the teams stayed at Vale d'Oliverais.
