Elite Rentals

Hello all. Does anyone here have any recent experience with this company please? Looking to book with them and, aside from some quite old posts on this forum, I'm unable to find any information. No reason whatsoever to believe they are anything but completely on the top line but any assistance would...

Re: Processional caterpillars

We happened to mention to some friends last week that we'd booked lunch at Ponto de Encontro for Sunday and they said, didn't we know Paolo had been in intensive care - after falling victim to these things? Apparently a nest fell from a neighbour's pine tree on to his terrace. Pleased to say he was ...

Re: Flea markets

The Ferragudo car boot usually takes place second Sunday of each month. Quite a big affair with all sorts of stuff on sale - books, clothing, furniture and general bric a brac.
If you Google, "Algarve car boots", you will also find listings for the various flea market type events in the area.

Re: Alvor 20109

Tony - lots of free parking by the boatyard and a little further along behind the cafes on the front. From there it's a two minute walk either to the town (entering where the boat trip booths and lifeboat station are), or to the boardwalk over the reserve to the beach. I'm a fan of Alvor and though ...

Re: Happys

Hello Sam and all. I'm here at the moment and can confirm Happys was open tonight and doing a good trade. Quiet here in the evenings as you would expect but you wouldn't starve. Jota Lita, A Gale, A Fonte, Pashmina, Gurkha Kitchen and a few others open in the evening. It was 26 degrees in Portimao t...

Ryanair seats at a fiver

In case anyone is interested, Ryanair are offering "today only" single fares to Faro for five pounds from various UK airports. Offer is for flights up until February. Of course, if you want a reserved seat, two bags etc. you'll pay more, but for anyone who fancies a cheap trip out in the off season ...

Re: Wedding

My daughter had an afternoon ceremony (with a "celebrant" - actual wedding in UK civil ceremony) at Rei das Praias six years ago. Ceremony on the decking directly over the beach, followed by a meal for 30 plus guests there under awnings. Then a bar and music on the beach until the early hours. Resta...
