ouch!!!



have a day out in loule - love it there!!

Go into the Old town if you are staying in Albufeira, also the Zoomarine is a good family day out. There are loads to do depending on your own personal likes or dilikes. The Marina at Vilamoura is great at night with lots of bars and restaurants.

Hi going to the algarve! we went in april. I need you to count the dogs and let us know how many you see!!!!!!!!! Youll understand when you get there!
But on the other side of if You need to go to Splash and Slide or is it slide and Splash. really good day out. Make sure you go on the Black Hole! Buy some fresh Oranges, Advacado,and some lemons from the side of the road if you get the chance! Pottery places at Porches are good dont get rippped off at the in town places. Oh if you can vist this p;lace to eat either at luch time or evening might be advisale to book before you go, Place is quite hard to find but ask in the village they know where it is . A nice think shes Canadian lady owns it, So no prob with the lingo! Honest its worth a visit copyied this bit of the web gives you the address and tel no, I do have a card somewhere but typical can't find it!!!!
Barão Sâo João
Restaurante Florestal - In terms of location this is an absolute treat, set as it is in a protected area of National Forest offering a cool and tranquil atmosphere. Sometimes the staff can appear to be a bit earnest, as if one should be worshipful of the creations on the plate, but the food is wonderful. Very popular so best to book | tel: (282) 68 72 04

Thanks for all the tips!!.... I have heard the jeep safari to the mountains is worth it... any one done this?

HEYA!
we went their last year with james villas and had our own car. villa was in a secluded spot.... Estoi.... anyways... we took the car to villamoura (loved that place....its family friendly), went to albuferia and absolutely hated it.... too chavvy, not my thing, old own is nicer..... if u r around faro (which we were) go the shopping complex where the jumbo is...... thats nice....we also took car to spanish border and took the ferry across to spain....was so lovely.

Forgot to say if you go to Albufeira look out for Balamory on the way!!!!!!! you cant miss it if you come in from Zoomarine way!!!!!!!1
