Walk Monday 21 Jan 2019 : Norinho/Enxerim. CLOSED.

Post by Geoff »

Walk is now closed.

It's flat along the lavada to start, has 5 minutes of back road and then is all on country tracks, many of them uphill but with quite a long climb in the early stages,(about ten/fifteen minutes) up some scree, and is quite steep in places, but after that the paths are good and there is a gentle descent, along with some lovely views.

Duration : last time 2h 40m.....10.2km, 332m ascent, according to Colin, which sounds & felt about right.

The cafe has been tried and recommended : menu and size is limited but they do a good grilled meat or fish prata de dia. Optional lunch price is 8.5€ for chicken/pork/Carapau/chicken with chick peas but 12.5€ for Dorada......but please note new lunch price policy at viewtopic.php?f=39&t=27800 so , as no one will have any change, cost will be 10€ for chicken/pork etc and 15€ for dorada. We will need to order before the walk. See also my post below.

Degree of Difficulty ( scale 1:5 ) : the steep climb makes that part a grade 4 ( strenuous) but the rest is overall grade 2 or 2.5.

Start: 1000.....but please arrive by 0945 if you want a coffee!

Directions : drive from Carvoeiro to Silves, go over the bridge and turn right and follow the N124 for about 3.2 kms until you see Cafe Casa de Pasto a Norinho on your left : park in layby opposite.

GPS : 37°12'20.6"N, 8°24'38.0"W
37.2057131N 8.4116553,312W

It is ESSENTIAL that you indicate below if you can come and whether you want lunch, as numbers will be limited to about 20. Thank you.

Walking boots/stout trainers recommended and walking poles.

Usual caveats - all walks are at your own risk, and we do not walk if it is pouring with rain...no charge, of course...I will endeavour to put any cancellation note on this site by 0830 on the day of the walk.

Any questions , please ask or ring 282 380015 preferably between 1800-1900 or 8am to 9am but not before 7 Jan.

Just to say we booked here the other day ( or rather, Isabel kindly did , as the owners don't speak English and I obviously can't speak Portuguese.) Snra was surprisingly happy to take the booking of 20+ , so hope Snr agrees as well !
As amended above, chicken/pork chops/pork steak ( bitoque)/chicken with chick peas/carrapau is 8.5€ but dorada is 12.5€. Hence, if you want lunch, charge will be 10€ for the chicken etc and 15€ for the dorada, to include tip & charity contribution for Mike & Su.
Those wanting dorada need to also decide if they want their potatoes boiled or chipped!
For those unfamiliar with this restaurant, price includes bread/olives,main course, pudding, coffee, wine and is all freshly cooked.
