Re: Rising prices

I think it is not just the style of the forum it is also that it has not attracted younger contributors. Knowing many who do still post,myself included, it is the older members of the community. I do continue to post on a near daily frequency on the relative Carvoeiro Facebook pages.

Re: Rising prices

Still ones of the cheapest countries in Western Europe, you should see the prices in France and Italy. Still a good price for a freshly cooked lunch with alcohol included.

Hope it also means the staff are getting a living wage and not the minimum Portugal one.

Re: Scorpions

We had one in the house last week, one of our Portuguese visitors said it was the sort you would expect to find in the Alentejo so yes, the hotter dryer weather this year has bought them south.

Re: Tree clearing - building or agriculture ?

For the past few weeks there has been a programme of uprooting trees and old vines in the fields between Intermarche and the road to Boa Vista/ Monte Santo. The land has sold sign on it , think its that area surrounding the tiny cottage which used to have 2 beautiful palm trees next to it. Its desi...

Re: Bikinis in Intermarche

In the summer most supermarkets have signs up saying what attire is not acceptable, ( men must have shirts on etc) think as it is rarely warm enough to walk around in Bikinis this time of year they are not prepared.

Re: Trattoria Oliveira

We went last year and although the staff were fantastic the food was average. It also felt like it needed a complete refurbishment as it look old and smelt musty. It seemed like it was a dining room for the people staying at QDP but perhaps now it's changed management it's improved ? I had not been...

Re: Christmas Fayre Vila Vita Biergarten Porches

On this I must totally agree with Bruce, a very disappointing event, no local craft stalls nothing but selling Vila Vita. Met several Carvoeiro residents who all agree, So much publicity and nothing to offer. The weather was bad but nothing had been moved inside and did not get the impression that o...
