Good morning Fellow Motorhomers,
Its still officially Winter in the Algarve, but if you come from the Northern countries of Europe, you may think its Spring already.
Sunset in southern Portugal is roughly 18:00 (6pm) which gives us at least 1.5 hours more sunshine than the typical London, Amsterdam, Oslo, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Berlin or Paris’s day.
Today is sunny, but a bit chilly at 13°C… however with the sun streaming in through the front motorhomes windows.. its doesn’t take long for the internal van temperature to rise to 20°…. and that for me is summer time!!
So if you’re heading south to Portugal for some sun, then please remember your days will be longer- basking in sunshine from 7:30am to 18:00..
It may not be warm enough to swim in the sea yet, unless you have a wetsuit … but its warm enough to do pretty much anything else…. aka.. .wearing summer dressers and t-shirts & shorts during the day.
So are you up for walking on the white golden beaches of the Algarve, wearing nothing but flip-flops and shorts & t-shirts in February???
If so, please pop in and say hello and we’ll give you a great big welcome and pour you a nice cold beer on your arrival.
Hear from you soon,
Anthea & Gerard
Its nearly the end of January 2018, and already we have been full and have turned people away. After only opening 4 months ago, thats a lovely feeling to know that we’re providing a site that motorhomers are seeking.
We are introducing 4 Caravan pitches – large enough to erect an awning and leave your chairs and bikes out. The cars are parked in the front section, so people have 24 hour vehicle access. We welcome all Caravan Enquiries and look forward to hearing from you.

We now have limited pitches available for the period spanning New Years. Taking bookings for New Years Eve celebration. Happy Holiday’s!

Bit of a spruce-up for our Café creating a more comfortable feel while freeing up space between tables. We spent many hours dining, drinking and watching films in this new layout and it got the stamp of approval…
We also added a shelf full of small blankets and cushions for movie-nights and the new tables makes for a great cinema setup. New bar stools gives a bit more seating at the counter and added to that, the outside area now also has more seating. A couple of pillows for our furry friends was added as well to be closer to us while we wine and dine and was a big hit.
Watch this space for more improvements.
