Re: Schengen visa rules

Thanks for your response. Just to clarify are you saying that there is no change for any Brit who wants to spend the winter in Spain/Portugal?

Schengen visa rules

Speaking to a friend yesterday who is a Spanish resident, she told me come 2021 she would only be able to spend 90 days in Spain, and would then be unable to return for 180 days. Spain and Portugal are both Schengen members, the UK is not. Whether Brexit has caused this I do not know. The only way r...

Re: Alvor 20109

Am sure you will enjoy Alvor, one of our favourite places to visit from Carvs. We were there last week enjoying the town, superb walks along the Boardwalks on the estuary, and the beach is excellent. We love to sit with the locals at the Football club bar.

You then drop onto Ferragudos Prai Grande beach. If the tide is ou...

Re: Cozinha Da Avo

We went to the Cozinha when we were over in July, still needs a few bits of decorating to the place. But the food was good. Excellent value, pleased because Pedro was a lovely guy, and it is sad to see that he and Andre, Rui and Vera have left the Escondina.

The problem is afterwards when you are directed dow a narrow route for all UK flights, it was packed and no Air con as usual, you eventually d...
