The walking was not taxing but it was very interesting. The wildflowers were stunning, not to be missed at this time of year, before the sun burns them off. We have never seen mile after mile of white Cistus in bloom. It really was a botanist's delight.
We particularly enjoyed staying in Salema at the Casa Praiamar and also Pedralva and Casa Fajara. Staff at the latter two were lovely. We were not particularly impressed by The Hotel Mira Sagres: the receptionist ignored us for five minutes on arrival while she spoke to another staff member but she was then perfectly friendly and took us up to our room. The aircon unit did not work and although we arrived promptly at the advertised time for breakfast, all the tables were taken and we had to wait to get places. Breakfast start time is obviously to be ignored or else had been changed without us being told. We guess that there is little accommodation choice in Vila do Bispo suitable for Inntravellers.
We did see the cliff-nesting storks but we were highly amused by the stork which had built its nest on the lamp post in the beating heart of Faro, oblivious to all the people, traffic and children's carousel pumping out music beneath it. If you like bird life, you will see other storks nesting in the centre and if you take the bus to Estoi, at this time of year, some houses are covered in martin nests. We watched swifts from our window at the AquaRia Hotel. We enjoyed two snacks at Cafe Allianca which is right next door to the hotel: the business, initially a dairy, is 110 years old and has a beautiful interior. It now calls itself a Cerverceria. The staff were very friendly and helpful with the large choice of beers. Up till now we had been drinking Vinho Verde so beer made a welcome change.
This is a lovely "get away from it all holiday" - very relaxing with fantastic views ! The Faro add on is very much recommended- it is a really interesting city that often gets overlooked.
