Sporting

Ellie - rugby seems a game played in the true spirit of sport and gamesmanship, competitors and fans alike. The tension of the game was incredible. digger - quite agree with you - I couldn't tear myself away, even though I couldn't watch either!!! I also like the big sports events, but agree they ar...

Could be controversial!!!

I have no allegiance to either the oval ball of the round version, but don't you think that rugby final was far more exciting than watching a football match.Or was it the occasion of England being in a major sporting final??

Interested to hear everyones views.

Perhaps you can get the best of both worlds weather-wise at Christmas. 70's sounds wonderful to me during the day, but I bet you can shiver a bit on the balcony in the evenings - we certainly found that in November and even in March. The contrast in temperatures in those months can be quite signific...

Just got back from CVO and the Tropical is still open and is ran by Helder. He opens at 9.00am till late except for Fridays when he opens up at 5.00pm. Very good place for snacks, coffee and drinks etc. Dave.

Quite agree with you Elle, the locals always seem to remember you. We didn't know Lagoa before the street was pedestrianised. Where abouts did you live in Lagoa - Elle? Depends on what you are expecting - Gordon & Sandy. Lagoa reminds us of where we live in England - a small town called Warwick, exc...

Pastelaria

Elle - I think we are talking about the same place - it has black & yellow counter, table & chairs etc, a bit 60's ish. We go there regularly when we go into Lagoa. We prefer to go somewhere that the locals would go rather that the touristy places. I think Lagoa is very underated, we often have a wa...

Difficult one this! I can think of a number of very helpful friendly locals. Our pool cleaner Dario, the lady who runs a coffee shop in Lagoa (the one on the same side as the Chinese rest.), but top place would go to Anibal at Vila Nova restaurant. He is very charming, always welcoming and has time ...

Motorcycle gear

We are leaving for CVO on Tuesday for 2 weeks. Does anyone know of a good motorcycle dealer that sells bike clothing. I am looking for a lightweight summer motorcycle jacket. Thanks in advance. Dave.

I would have thought the best thing would be to get in touch with the golf course/complex direct. They don't appear to have an e-mail address. Fax no is 282 358497. Dave.

Communication

Yes, it is good to be able to communicate and keep in touch with so many folks who have an interest and passion for CVO. We have a property between Benagil and CVO - nr Salicos - which we only manage to get out to 4 - 5 times a year, so it is great to be able to communicate with people in the area o...
