First Visit

I noted that 'Chris' is going in September 2010. So are we, the reason is we had such a good deal at the Tempomar Apartments we could not turn it down. We are Greek Island lovers really but you dont look a gift horse in the mouth so its Portugal for our first time. We are busy trying to learn as much as we can from Algarve books at home but it looks a decent enough place, right up the other end from Portimau (concrete jungle) and Albufeira. Mind you boat trips there are ok if you like caves (not us) other than that there doesnt seem much activity in that area. We shal go to the market at Luz on Saturday too. If anyone knows what the rail sytem is like please let us know if there are any worthwhile places to visit. Of course food is entirely different to Greek Islands and we are both looking forward to sampling food a la Portuguese. We have had to book independently but managed reasonable flights with Easy Jet on 4 September. Anybody got any comments please air them. We always report on Trip Advisor. Top site.

I can help you with the train and bus situation.

Burgau village has a bus every hour (on weekdays) into the nearby town of Lagos, which is the western end of the railway line and a good jumping off point for other parts of the area. In September the winter times will apply, which means an earlier finish to buses in the evening and fewer buses at weekends than during summer. Check the details!

www.algarvebus.info/lagos.htm to get you started.

My personal website www.algarvebus.info/index/htm has all the train and bus times for the Algarve region.

Good places to visit if you like a little bit of history and scenery include Sagres, Silves and Lagos itself.
