Re: Christmas Visit

My experience is that theres plenty going on in and around Carvoeiro in the build up to Christmas. And the flights tend to be cheaper. We returned to UK last Christmas eve at 10.15 for £6 each. Thank you very much for your reply. We went ahead and booked the week leading into Christmas...didnt mana...

Christmas Visit

Hi everyone. Just looking for a bit of advice. We are booking to come over around Christmas time for a week and are torn between the week before Christmas or the week after (that would include New Years eve and day). We have been over in December before but not that close to Christmas so wondered if...

Re: Tennis

I think QdP would be happy for your custom - don’t know what the charge would be but it’s got to be less than the main tennis club as the QdP courts are not in very good condition. In response to our requests for the net tape to be mended on at least one of the courts (which did eventually happen) ...

Re: Tennis

Although a bit out of town, playing at Rocha Brava is good with 4 courts and a bar and cafe next to them Hi madaboutangling, thank you for your reply. I agree the facilities are fantastic. I had already contacted Rocha Brava via e-mail on Friday when this topic was in my mind and they replied strai...

Tennis

Hi everyone, When we come over we generally do not have a car so we were wondering is there any place in town (or closer than Carvoeiro Clube de Ténis) to play? We have seen courts in Monte Dourado, Quinta do Paraiso, Monte Santo etc. but just wondered if anybody knew if these can be booked by peopl...

Re: Dos Santos Craft Beer

I agree with the views of algarve123 but feel they are making a mistake by calling their food 'tapas'. They are actually further described as 'sharing plates' which creates a problem if you go alone and just want a beer (the honey flavour is particularly good !) and a snack, or if two people do not...

Re: Dos Santos Craft Beer

We went earlier in the week and were really impressed. First off the setting is stunning. It overlooks the farm they have planted and is a really beautiful place to sit. The restaurant, bar and shop are all very tastefully finished. We tried the lager and ale and had some lunch. I am no great connoi...

Dog Friendly Accomodation

Hello, I hope the new year finds you all well. We have been coming to Carvoeiro for a good many years but we got a new dog last year and are starting to make plans for our next trip. It would be great if anyone had any suggestions for pet friendly accommodation or had any general suggestions/experie...

Re: The Roundup

Interesting comments here regarding Irish visitors. Personally I have always found Irish visitors to Carvoeiro great fun and filled with good cheer and humour. However, a Portuguese friend who manages a popular resort here told me that the Irish visitors he had to accommodate in the early season we...

Re: Fim de Mundo

Very true alf1956, we have seen it but never dared try. Looks like a job for them to carry it to the table, nevermind consume it! Its great that the high quantity is always met by high quality too. I think they have struck a perfect balance between unpretentious friendly dining and high quality food...
