Lugg - just found your report today! Your photos are excellent. I love the Algarve but I havent been there for over 15 years. We used to hire a villa most summers and take the children for a couple of weeks. We started off staying at Carvoiera but then it got too busy, then Lagos (on the edge of a golf club) and then we gave up and moved up to the hills at Monchique where, most days, we collected our fresh water from the streams flowing down the mountain. What lovely days they were - oh the Times Past.
