Walk Tuesday 29 Jan 2019 : Honey Cafe. CLOSED

Post by Geoff »

Walk is now closed....please note change of lunch venue.

This is a new walk : whilst we have been to the Honey Cafe before for walks at Montes de Cima, this is in the opposite direction and links up with part of the Moinha de Rocha walk. Please note that there are a lot of ups and downs, some quite steep. The track is also partly overgrown ( bit more than partly in some places!) so trousers are recommended.

Duration is about 2 hours and there is 1 water crossing , though the stepping stones should be adequate.

Degree of Difficulty ( scale 1:5) : 3 Energetic

Start : 10.00am Honey Cafe, Montes de Cima.

Directions: From Lagoa, turn left on the N125 and go past the turn-off for Alvor. After a few hundred yards, there is a BP station on your right and a road signposted " Senhora do Verde, Vidigal, Casais, Alcalar, Torre" : turn right here. IF you go past the Hotel Penina on your left, you have gone too far.

Go up this road ( M532). After going through a single lane tunnel and after about another 1/4 mile, make sure you follow the road bending left signed Alcalar ; do NOT go straight on.

You should then soon be crossing the motorway. Carry on, passing A Taberna Nicola cafe on your right, and Cafe Andre a bit later on your left. Carry on past O Tasco, on the left. Just past O Tasco, bear left and follow the Monchique sign.

About 5 minutes after O Tasco, you will see a building on the right that used to be a cafe bear left here ( signposted Montes de Cima, Marmalete, Casais ) and drive on for about 3kms till you get to Montes de Cima. Follow the road round to the right to the cafe Taberna da Manel ; park opposite, or a bit further up the road.Please do not park just outside the cafe.

GPS : 37.241448, -8.611435

Lunch ( optional):Please note this will now be at O Tasco as O Caseiro is still closed for the Christmas holidays. O Tasco has a set menu for 9.5€ to include bread/olives, main course, dessert/coffee, 1/2 jug of wine. There are extra choices for a few euros more...with tip etc & hopefully some contribution to the charity, expect to pay between 11€ and 13€ depending on choice....but please note new lunch price policy at viewtopic.php?f=39&t=27800

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 0900 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 January.

Hi Geoff,

Unfortunately I have to go back to the UK for a few days this week so I won't be able to come on this walk now.

Best wishes,

Mike

I have had to make a couple of changes to this walk , duration is now about 2 hours and there is 1 water crossing , though the stepping stones should be adequate.

Lunch : optional.
Please note this will now be at O Tasco as O Caseiro is still closed for the Christmas holidays. O Tasco has a set menu for 9.5€ to include bread/olives, main course, dessert/coffee, 1/2 jug of wine.

Hi Geoff,
We have decided not to walk with the group tomorrow.
I’m not 100%, and Janet could well have caught the virus.
We plan to take your self guided walk around the Ohiaxere estuary, Alvor, and then join youall for lunch.
I have failed to join any further walks, but we both would welcome the opportunity to do so, if the opportunity arises.
Would you bear this in mind Geoff please.
Look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow,
Best wishes, John
