Re: Boat trip

Thank you, Carolyn. I'm awful with names but felt sure someone would know him.

Boat trip

Hello all, I'm over for a few days later this month with my brother. He's only visited the Algarve once, for my daughter's wedding, and I'm trying to put together a bit of an informal itinerary. Does anyone know if the cave trips from the town beach are likely to be on and, if so, what they cost? I'...

Re: Our first visit :)

The boat trip from Portimao to Silves mentioned earlier is one I'd also recommend, although not sure how easy it is to get to Portimao on public transport. If you do get to Portimao, the museum there is quite interesting, particularly the bit which relates to the town's history as a sardine fishing ...

Re: Roundup for sale?

Yes, the price is on the ad. I'd not seen it before and wondered if the copyright was in respect of the pictures. Anyway, time will tell.

Roundup for sale?

Came across this: http://www.roundupsaloon.de/ I know there have been a lot of rumours over the years about Will packing it in, but this seems current as far as I can tell. We were over in November and spoke to Will. He was busy tearing up and replacing the bar floor and we jokingly said it was nice...

Re: Flea market

Hi Bifas. Just to say thanks to you for pointing us in the way of the flea market. Also to Roy for recently redirecting us to this section of the forum. We were over last week and spent a very enjoyable Sunday morning in Ferragudo. Perfect weather, which lasted the whole week, and something quite di...

Re: Boa Vista area

Thanks all. Sounds like it will suit us fine. Like to be able to walk into town in the evening but days tend to be a drive out somewhere or some pool time at the Vila.

Re: Boa Vista area

Thank you. No intention to diss your hood as it were. Clearly a nice area but the twenty minute walk? Bit hard to tell, even from the Google satellite image.

Boa Vista area

Hello all. Have found a villa that looks nice for our next visit, described as being in Boa Vista. I'm not sure where this is - could anyone enlighten me please? Blurb says it is a 20 minute walk to the town, which is fine by me, but just don't want to end up in a duff area. I wonder if it's near th...

Re: best Chinese restaurant

That's always going to be subjective but for me it has to be chicken curry, half chips, half rice.

Re: Boarding Cards

As a possible alternative, I believe Ryanair allow you to check in using a smartphone. An app is available on the website.

Re: Christmas Day lunch at Ma-Ja's restaurant

In the interests of fairness regarding "personal comments", will the mods be removing the reference to finding somewhere cheap to eat? Exchanges like this, and there are plenty of them, spoil this forum.
