Re: Rota Do Petisco - Tasting Trail

Go to www.rotadopetusco.com. What you need is a "passport" which costs €1 (monies to charity I understand) available from any venue which details all the venues, maps and the food on offer.

Rota Do Petisco - Tasting Trail

Highly recommended on the small sample of the many venues visited so far! (Although not many have a Carvoeiro address!) We have until 15th October to try many more. The proprietors we met have all been most welcoming and have produced interesting fare at minimal price. Tonight we received an impromp...

Re: Now's the time to revitaliise this section!

Ok. Over to you then. I've already tried to get responses under the Property Owners section of the forum where you can see my ridiculous charges so far from the camara. These will just be the tip of the iceberg compared to what has to come (?) next (connection from our villa to the connection point ...

We have no idea how this charge has been calculated. Ý5 They are demanding payment within 30 days and for us ...

Re: Black and White Night

Some of us were indeed there! It was a fabulous night and the lack of comments on this forum is most surprising. A major triumph for Carvoeiro - although maybe next year it could be a little cooler!

Re: WIFI in villa

Have a look at the NOWO.pt website. Enter your postcode and see if you can get their excellent cabled service in your area at their new prices. We have just changed from MEO who when we insisted on leaving offered us their inferior service for no charge!!

Re: Faro Airport

We flew from Faro this afternoon at 3.30. The main road where the A22 joins with the 125 was slow due to road resurfacing work and single file traffic. At the airport there were long queues through the upper floor security area. It took us 40 minutes.However we were in the line next to the edge of t...

Pato, have you seen the plans and detail? We are not back until September so there's no chance of us getting to see them I presume?

Re: ADM!

I had also heard the news. Does anyone know the approx. costs for villa owners to connect to the main sewer (which is compulsory , I believe) once they've been installed ?

Portuguese Will

Has anyone had their own Will for Portuguese assets created recently?
My wife and I understand we would need one to cover our villa and Bank Account.
Does anyone have any advice or recommendations please?

Re: Travelrent

I also have used ECH and TravelRent on our last 3 visits. The first time we were seduced by an almost new Renault Clio but thereafter the cars have been rather old. But perfectly ok. The collection and return has been with the minimum of fuss. Sometimes its good to have a hire car that has seen a bi...
