Re: Al registration tax query

Thanks - exactly what we understood and exactly what we said to the accountant. They're seriously suggesting people should pay CGT on a 'transaction' that they concede is completely imaginary. Maybe this fictitious CGT liability can be dealt with in their imaginations too! Sounds like their advice ...

Take the road to Benagil from CVO/Lagoa. About 400 metres past the water tower turn left.

Re: A Tasquinha Monte Carvoeiro

Went to A Tasquinha on Friday evening. Had a really nice meal but we were the only two there all evening. I can't see how Marco could have even covered his cost for the evening and you wonder how long a business can keep going like this. Never had a bad meal there (or Lagoa when it was there) and a...

Re: Faro Airport

We arrived at Faro on 25 April at about 1400 and returned on 4 May for a 1115 flight and didn't experience any problems on both days. I am glad we used the A22 though as someone said it took them over 1.5 hours to get to the airport from CVO!

Re: Best restaurants for kids

No probs! Vila Nova is also really good if you have children. If you don't know it, it is on a small complex and there is some play equipment close by. Restaurant serves excellent food and Anibal will look after you and the family very well. It is on the other side on Carvoeiro so you really need to...

Re: Best restaurants for kids

Vale Do Milho Restaurant is very good for children although not close to the centre of Carvoeiro so may not be ideal depending on where you are staying. It has some nice gardens just off the terrace with some childrens play equipment. The main act is Fernando though and his sense of humour! https://...

Re: Best Breakfast in Carvoeiro?

I agree also with Tropical (Helders). Tony's snack bar is also very good.

Hiring a table tennis table

We are renting a villa in August for 2 weeks and were wondering if it is possible to rent a table tennis table for the fortnight? Just to prove I can still beat my son!!!

If anyone has any ideas it would be much appreciated.
