Re: Carvoeiro in October

Hi BTBUXTON, Many thanks for the information regarding activities in October. A pity that the land train and the entertainment in the square may well have finished for the season. However, I'm sure that our relatives will find plenty of other activities in Carvoeiro and the surrounding area to keep ...

Carvoeiro in October

Good morning, We have been coming to Carvoeiro for a number of years in August, during the peak holiday season. However, some relatives of ours, including 3 young children, will be spending a week in Carvoeiro in the middle of October (school half-term week). Can somebody let me know if the normal a...

Re: Villa holiday accommodation August 2020

Hi. Thanks Bruce and John for your responses. Fortunately it looks as if we've been able to book a villa in Val do Milho. Can't believe how difficult it has been to find a suitable property over the past two years.

Regards.

Re: traveltoalgarve.net

Hi Carolyn, Many thanks for your reply. We have come to the same conclusion. Sent an email asking some pertinent questions, similar to those points that you mentioned, and, as yet have not received a response. Looks as though it's back to the drawing board in looking for suitable accommodation. It's...

Re: Alvor 20109

Hi again, Many thanks for the response to my posting regarding Alvor. I believe that parking in Alvor could be a problem. We shall be staying in a villa in the R Monte Canalas area which is on the other side of the N125 from Alvor. We will be travelling in a 9 seat vehicle so we're hoping that parki...

Alvor 20109

Hi. Sadly, having spent the last few years in villas around Carvoeiro, we were unable to find accommodation for 2 weeks in August. My wife didn't start looking until about Christmas time but we were still surprised to have experienced this problem. However, we have managed to book a suitable villa j...

Re: Child car seats

Hi again Farol, No sooner had I sent of my previous reply than I had an immediate reply from Zit Auto. Apparently, they only have those 2 types of child seats available and suggested that we took our own in future. Perhaps in a year's time we might have to get another Trunky style booster seat simil...

New look at Faro Airport

Hello from overcast Swindon. We have just returned from our 2 week holiday in Carvoeiro. We have to say that we were very impressed with the alterations to Faro Airport (much improved to last year). Had no problems with checking in or passport control. The duty free, which you now have to walk throu...

Re: Child car seats

Hello Farol, The car rental company concerned was Zit Auto, who, I'm happy to say have always provided an excellent service. I have emailed them to ask if it is possible to provide child seats which are grouped in a similar manner to the UK and cover a wider age group, as mentioned by smudger on thi...

Child car seats

Hi. Has anyone else had difficulties in obtaining a high back booster seat with harness supplied with their rental car from Faro Airport? We tried to get one suitable for our 3 and a half year old grandson and was told they only had either baby/toddler seats. Disappointing, since we have used this c...

Re: Gurka/Nepal restaurant

Morning from sunny Carvoeiro (only until Friday I'm afraid). We think that Haweli Indian restaurant is the best in town. Although we're only able to have takeaways, and I may be biased since we've been going there for a few years. Staff are very friendly as well. Tony
