Walk Monday 26 February 2024 : Western Funcho. CLOSED

Post by Geoff »

Walk is closed.

Casa de vinha is open again!!!

It's a just over 2.5 hours and it has a couple of steady inclines, but is otherwise predominantly flat(ish).

Difficulty ( on a scale of 1:5) : most is 2 (moderate) but a short part is 3(energetic)

Start : 10.00.....but please be there by 0945 if you want a coffee and order lunch.

Duration :about 2 hours 30 mins.

Optional lunch at Casa da Vinha. The group price is now 14€ pp plus drinks, but including upgraded couverts. so expect to pay about 17€ or 18€ pp.

Directions : drive from CVO to Silves, go over the bridge and turn right and follow the N124 for about 7 kms until you see a turning on the left signposted "Barragem do Arade 3 kms".......the signpost is in a small triangular traffic island, which has a large palm tree on it.

Drive in the direction of the Barragem for 1km when there is a cafe on the left ( A Rainha): turn right, signposted Canestros and Gregorios.

Drive through both Canestros and Gregarios for 3kms then make a sharp left turn, almost doubling back on yourself.

Drive for 2kms until you come to a T junction at the top of the hill, turn right , drive through the village and Casa de Vinha is on the right. Please park opposite.

Map ref : 37.250498, -8.350511

Usual caveats - all walks are at your own risk, and we do not walk if it is pouring with rain.....I will endeavour to put any cancellation note on this site by 0830 on the day of the walk.

Please advise if you are intending to come, and whether you want lunch

Due to the recent increase in numbers, I am limiting this walk to a max of 20 people.

Any questions , please ask or ring 282 380015 preferably between 1800-1900 or before 0900, or email : geoffrey.j.hill@btopenworld.com

Please count Rob and Amanda in for the walk. We'll confirm about the lunch once we know whether we have a ride. Is anyone able to give us a lift? We are in Carvoeiro but can meet at a central spot.

As we are a bit low on lunchers, can include you two, I assume you will be lunching? Pse confirm.

As Jen cancelled, room for Mags as well

Could Amanda & Rob please clarify if you are lunching and/or walking as there are others on waiting list?
Thanks.

Geoff
