Sales Office

Is the sales office still open? As their website http://www.rochabravaproperty.com/ has not been working for over a month now.

Re: Faro Airport

We arrived 13th June 3pm, and no delays through passport control. We departed 27th June 5pm, and as some body advised used the fast track service for security (2.50 euro) with Ryan Air. The queues didnt look to bad for security, so probably through in less than 30 mins. The fast track is unusual in ...

Re: Hop on - Hop off bus

The bus runs till 11pm, but beware wherever the bus is at 11pm thats when it stops. We had 2 young girls using it to get back from ferraguda to rocha brava, and when it got to carvoeiro at 11pm they told them to get off this bus as it was 11pm. Not a nice experience for them. They had to pay to get ...

Re: Car Rental loyalties tested

Likewise , we have used algarvedriver for last 15 years, but prices are too much of a difference now (even with loyalty points, free extra driver etc) , we have used Economy Car Hire last few times with no problem and heck of a site cheaper, quicker, with arguably better cars. The algarvedriver out ...

Re: Cafe in RB

Was not open when we left today 6th January .. Still looked like a few weeks work left. What used to be takeaway looks like it will become part of the bar inside.

Re: A takeover!

I agree, this in my opinion looks like it will be good for RB owners in terms of rental and propery values. With regards to maintenance charges i understand the owners have a vote on budgets for the year at the Agm so we should not see any big increases. Only downside if HPB buy enough properties to...

Re: O farol

They have reduced their prices and extended the menu, and also do a takeaway service. Its still pricey in my view, but cant fault the service or food.

There were some menus and 10% off cards (for anybody) in reception when we there in June.

Its a great web cam of the square. The slowness is probably down to the internet connection that the web cam is using, and the number of people viewing it at simultaneously Although not carvoeiro, this is a great high resolution web cam of the beach near sagres http://www.portugal-webcams.com/webcam...

I find the 5 day forecasts change on day to day basis, and are generally only accurate for 1-2 days at the most. The BBC forecast is the most accurate in my opinion. It can be misleading when it says partly cloudly or scattered clouds, as in portugal this tends to mean a blue sky, with a few clouds ...

I think problems with windscreen wipers are common as they are infrequently used in the algarve, with hire cars anyway. They just get brittle/melt in the sun and are dont tend to work when you need them. There are no excuses for hire firms providing cars with Bald tyres, this is dangerous. I always ...
