Re: Vale de milo/lamb chops

OH swears by the lamb chops at Lamims in Lagoa. We were recently in Zante and he tried the lamb chops in a restaurant in trepidation but said no contest!

Re: Piped water supply

Not sure if you got my PM about a month ago, Algarve Eagle? Simple answer is no progress yet but we are heading to the villa on Wednesday for a few days to try to crack this. I have asked my solicitor to call the Camara but I've not heard anything from her. Think it will be a serious test of my lang...

Re: Newsletter

Good call posting about the newsletter. I read and enjoy it every month. Last month I passed news on to my sister about the beach party as she was in cvo at the time - she couldn't understand how I knew so I shared info re the source. Every year I read about the Black and White night and I have arra...

Re: Scorpions

My brother in law found one in the pool (!) last week! A neighbour said it was because the ground is very sandy.

Re: Weeds weeds weeds everywhere ...!!!!

Whilst I agree, its much the same here - I was shocked to see two guys with hoes removing weeds from the edge of the road near me in the UK couple of days back. All down to reduced funding for local government and the need to cut costs.

Re: Faro Airport

We flew back to Gatwick from Faro on Tuesday 4 July and having allowed an extra half hour, sailed straight through security without queuing, trekked our way via duty free etc then were less than impressed by the food outlets and seating. We flew back with Monarch and got called to the gate really ea...

Mattress topper

My sister has said she'd like to buy a mattress topper for the bed at my villa as she finds the bed hard. Any suggestions as to where she could buy one?

Re: Piped water supply

Thanks for your post....Jealous that you're still there.... we were very happy when suddenly we spotted an access cover in the track and even stopped the car. I initially thought the boxes on the walls were for external electric meters as its been suggested I should get one. I was thinking of asking...

Piped water supply

We are just back from a lovely sunny Easter weekend in cvo. Much to our surprise, we found that piped water supplies seem to be being run into the area around Caramujeira. Pipes have been run along the track (road) and there are what look like meter cupboards on the villa wall plus small covers in t...

Re: The Portuguese language.

Go for it raithstar - I have been learning Portuguese in the UK since 2004 and although it's a tough language, it hugely satisfying when you end up somewhere inland (in the Algarve or elsewhere) where they can't speak English and then can make yourself understood!
