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.

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!

Re: Why no events and only ramblers on this topic ?

Great idea - I often look in this topic in the hope that there may be something. Not doing anything about it myself is a poor excuse, so I will endeavour to post if I come across something that's going on when we're in the area.

I ended up getting it sorted out (long story involving difficult vendors solicitor etc) and got a small reduction on price. It was expensive requiring detailed plans and an application to the Cam...
