Ian and Nina drove down from France to revisit the Algarve after 41 years away. Although they found it different, they looked at it with fresh eyes. They enjoyed the garden and were very kind in accepting the fact that the pool was under repair. The weather was kind in return and with mostly sunny skies they were able to see the whole of the region from atop the Monchique mountain.
From the Guest Book:
5th of April to 12th of April 2014,
A nostalgic return to the Algarve for us, as it is some 41 years since we last visited. Back then it was undeveloped and tourism to the area in its infancy.
Many changes have taken place, some good and some not so good, but the golden sandy beaches remain the same as ever.
We managed a trip to Monchique this time and to the top of the mountain at Foia where the views looking down on the Algarve coastline are quite something. Lunch at the Rampa restaurant on the way down is well worth the stop.
Isabel and Greg are excellent hosts and have a well equipped holiday home in a good location on the Algarve. They are always ready to give information and advice if needed.
The welcome provision on our arrival were much appreciated.
We’ve had a lovely week’s holiday and thank you.
