Re: Pool cleaning

As a matter of interest what is a ballpark figure for pool-cleaning per week/month/year - private villa not let and only used intermittently.

Re: My poor cat

So sad to hear of the loss of your cat. Cars/trucks etc. speed through the Mato Serrao area and the footpaths are very narrow, and nonexistent, in some parts. If traffic doesn't slow down one of these days a child could be seriously injured, or worse!

Re: Weather Station Beach cam

I am open to correction but is the camera not situated on the GNR station. It has not been in operation for at least six weeks now which is such a shame as it always raises a person's spirits to check in on the beach, the beautiful blue skyline and the aquamarine seas when one is not in Carvoeiro.

Re: DOGS DOGS DOGS!

I agree wholeheartedly with the above comments. Our residence is situated in Mato Serrao close to the Villas Mourim, Monte Santo resorts. We frequently have to move indoors with the incessant barking of dogs - which defeats the purpose of holidaying in Portugal. There is one house with four small do...

Re: Restaurante O Flamingo

We dined in O Flamingo once again during our recent visit to Carvoeiro. The food, service and attention to detail was even better than our last visit. The prices are on a par with most restaurants in the area but, we have to admit that the quality and presentation of the food is superior to many. It...

Re: Restaurante O Flamingo

We visited O Flamingo on two occasions during our recent holiday in Carvoeiro. We found the standard and presentation of the food to be superb and the staff are most friendly. The restaurant itself which recently opened under new management has been beautifully redecorated. We will be returning.

Re: CARVOEIRO.2016

The boxes are beautifully painted & the themes on each one fit in to the surrounding street. Last time we were in Carvoeiro we watched as some of them were painted & it was fascinating how quickly they were completed. Artist is truly talented!
