    • Taxi Number or bus connection

      Portimão Jan 10, 2016 at 1:53 AM

      Hello,

      Arriving in Portimao with the bus from Lisbon - Largo do Dique is where we get dropped off I believe.
      We are staying at Oasis Parque - I see it is a bit of a bus terminal around there - I am so confused with the via dem bus timetable (route 36 or 21 or 11) cannot figure it out. SO if necessary and I don't see any taxis, what number would I call and will they understand English? Sorry to ask such basics but have tried to find answers first. Many thanks!

      Albufeira Dec 14, 2015 at 12:16 PM

      Hi, a few of us are planning to go to Albufeira in January and were wondering how many bars etc would actually be open. We went last year in march and found it very lively. I have read it is quiet and there isnt much open but we are trying to find out 'how much' is actually meant by not much? Do places stay open late that are open and roughly how many bars/clubs would be open. Thanks!

    • A flat for 4 weeks in Faro

      Faro Aug 22, 2015 at 10:54 AM

      From which companies we could inquire accomodation in Faro Portugal? We are a couple, two adults, and would like to rent a one bedroom flat for 4 weeks in December 2015/January 2016. The international companies in the internet have only luxury villas and very expensive flats to offer. Where can we find ordinary flats within normal rent level? We don´t speak portugese so the local newspapers are not helpful.

      We're heading to Cabanas de Tavira for a week end of May and like to walk. I know that we can walk from there to Tavira. I'm wondering if there are any other coastal walks from Cabanas as we won't have a car. I know that at the end of ria Formosa just as it turns up onto ria Fortaleza there's what looks like a dirt track coastal walk through trees. Any one know if its a circular route back to Cabanas or of any other good walks locally?
