Hi All, firstly, apologies if I am repeating previously addressed questions. Normally, I do plenty of research on Tripadvisor prior to booking a holiday but over the weekend, I found a last minute deal to Monte da Quinta with Sovereign that seemed to good to miss (I am currently suffering with muscle damage in my back and leg so can't be on a plane for too long, making The Algarve ideal).
Primarily,my husband and I are looking for a week of lying in the sun, relaxing. We didn't opt to hire a car as we felt this was one less responsibility but now I am starting to wonder if this was wise. We are on a B&B basis (with two complimentary meals at the restaurant on site) so will need to fend for ourselves for most evenings and lunchtimes.
Can anyone tell me how far the nearest beach is by foot? I can walk and am happy to do so but am mindful of the midday sun!
Having read other posts, it seems as though stocking up on items at a local supermarket (not Qunita Shopping) for the stay is the most economic option
Also, dining at Nelitos is a must while we are there as we used to go regularly to the owners' Nelitos in the UK and it was my favourite restaurant. Is this a reasonable distance by taxi?
If anyone can recommend places to eat, or advise re distances to eateries, that would be helpful so we can make a judgement re car hire. Also, any info re prices of eating at the restaurant./room service at Monte da Quinta would be great.
Sorry again if I am duplicating existing threads and
many thanks for any details/suggestions you can offer.
