Children's play areas

Post by Tony Knight » Mon Aug 06, 2018 4:01 pm

Hi. Does anybody know of any children's play areas in the Val Do Milho proximity. We are coming to Carvoeiro on Friday for 2 weeks, and whereas we have had gardens laid to lawns at our previous rental villas in Sesmarias, we do not have playing space for the grandchildren this year. Have to try and keep them occupied, as long as it isn't too hot!!!!!

Any replies would be appreciated.

Tony

I asked general question about children's play areas a few years back and will try to find it (didn't turn up on a quick search). Whilst this doesn't help with proximity to Vale do Milho, there is a play area by the church and auditorium above the beach in cvo.

Appreciate not in Carvoeiro but there’s a good play area in Estomber, with a coffee shop on site so can watch kids whilst enjoying a coffee, soft drink. On main road opposite train station.

Hi again.

Many thanks for those responses. We may hit the road for those suggestions, or go back to our old 'haunt' from the past couple of years at the tennis club. If I remember, they have a trampoline there where we can watch the children whilst having a spot of lunch.

There is a children's playground nearby on the Rocha Brava site.

Hello patjmcd,

Many thanks for your response. I think that Rocha Brava will be within walking distance from where we'll be staying. Do you have to be staying at the resort to use their facilities?

Hi. I suggest you visit sites des fontes. (Estombar) about a 10 min drive from carvoeiro
It’s a very popular with Portuguese families. It is overlooking the estuary and has a clear very cold swimming river and pool Great for hot days, children’s playgroun, picnic area,brick bbqs and an excercise track and great walks around the water. No facilities apart from toilets so take umbrellas (not much shade) and a picnic. Great place to make new Portuguese friends,follow signs from estombar , past ferragudo

Hi Pato
Went to VDM (staying at a nice villa here) yesterday and had a great lunchtime meal - only customers there. Will go back again before we come home Friday. Thanks for your response. Tony
