Re: First year in 7 - heading to Portugal but not CVO

Yeah - I've checked and it's a way away.

Still, there's always next year!

First year in 7 - heading to Portugal but not CVO

I'm crying a little inside frankly. We left it late this year and we swore we'd take a year off from CVO just to make the heart grow fonder, but now I'm yearning for it. Let me be clear, we're staying near to Olháo this year so won't be more than a 30min journey (perhaps more) but I'm going to try a...

Mar D'Fora

Just wanted to share a few reviews of restaurants during our last visit in July 2018 as I noticed posts are waning. So, last year (our 5th year in CVO) was our first trip to Mar D'Fora. We loved it and the service was top notch. This year we went back again of an evening at around 8:45pm. Yes it was...

Black & Green Taxi

Hi all, wondering what the best taxis to use are?

We've often been nearer to the town than we are this year and so far we've used one guy who turns up late, twice. Considering a tuktuk, but wondered if the Main Rank taxis are bookable?

Is There A Gym?

Sorry if this had been posted before but I can't search for a word less than 4 letters long unfortunately. I'm coming back to CVO this week and I'm on a bit of a health kick and just wondering if any of my fellow English natives have any recommendations for where I might be able to go and use a gym ...

Incoming....year 6 and counting

Hi all, We're about to embark on our 6th straight year in CVO, and we're not staying in our usual Villa(s), rather up near L'Orange for a change (we booked late and we needed it cheaper!). I hear that there are a few changes in terms of Restaurants from last year, so that's nice. I just wish the lit...

Portable AC Units

hi all, I'm on countdown to our next visit to CVO this year in July and the place we're in this year (Villa) has no AC. Now we dealt with it last year just about but sometimes it was rather difficult. I was just wondering whether anybody grabs portable AC units whilst they are on their travels to CV...

Algarve Driver

Hey guys,

I know most of you have used Algarve Driver, but I haven't yet and this will be 6th year in CVO - first time for everything!

I've booked, but assuming we pay on arrival?

Re: Car Rental

Hi all,

Sorry to bring back this thread from the dead. Where do Algarve Driver drop the car? We've used Goldcar and whilst expensive it's a breeze to pickup the car.

We tried Travelrent or somebody the other year and I waited for 90mins in the heat to pickup from a hut...

Thanks

Year 6 incoming!

Hey all, We're planning our 6th straight year over to CVO such is the allure of the place! We're struggling to get what we want this year with our budget, however we're looking at places a little further away from the main town (we're normally on Rua do Cerro), up around the Rua de Areias dos Moinho...
