Walk : Wednesday 25 March 2009 at 1000

Hi all This will be "Hilltops & Orange Groves" from Julie Statham's book page 48. It should take about 2.5 hours , but there is a nice cafe at the start/finish. Lovely views. There are a couple of fairly steep climbs & whilst the paths are generally good , there is a downhill one that has loose scre...

We had 15 people ( & another 2 friendly dogs), although only Helen & Jane saw it through the Forum, the rest were friends ,or friends of friends. No matter , a good time seemed ...

Re: CVO Ramblers

Alison......that was the book we used as a guide, & the irrigation walk you mention is the one we are doing tomorrow , albeit with a slight twist. Great minds & all that . Hope to meet you on a walk when you are out here. Just to rub it in , the weather this last week has been gorgeous , unbroken bl...

Re: Walk on wednesday 18 March 2009 at 10h00

Hi all The next walk will be around the Ilha do Rosario , it should take about 2 hours & is easy(ish)......nearly all flat but there is a gentle hill to climb. Distance about 9km or 5 miles. It is similar to the "Sunflower Landscapes" walk or the Julie Stratham walk , but we will cut across the cent...

Re: CVO Ramblers

The inaugural CVO Ramblers walk was successfully concluded on a lovely sunny day , albeit there were only the 4 of us ( plus 2 friendly dogs that insisted on accompanying us most of the way). Caroline & Jerec are leaving this weekend , so we need some more walkers please! Next walk, wednesday 18 Mar...

Re: Car Hire

Having tried most of the major companies ( National, Europcar etc) through holidayautos , must say that Travelrent are always very relaiable & reasonable , don't charge extra for an extra driver & don't minutely examine the car for nicks. Minimal waiting & hassle on collection & return.

To try & get the ball rolling , can I suggest an inaugural walk on Thursday 12 March at 1000. Meet outside the cemetary in Silves & walk up to th...

To try & get the ball rolling , can I suggest Thursday 12 March at 1000. Meet outside the cemetary in Silves & walk up to the windmill & loop back via the beautiful countyside beyond. About 2 hours. (Directions: driving from CVO to Silves , go over the bridge & turn right. At the roundabout , turn l...
