Following on from my previous post (reasonably priced restaurants near Almancil), I'd be interested to hear of anywhere you consider would be interesting to visit while we are staying on the Quinta do Lago in Aug with an 11 and 13 yr old.
Last time we visited 5 years ago armed with a Rough Guide and ventured to Tavira which we loved (and took a boat out to the heaving islands that we hated). We visited the Portuguese Water Dogs at the Ria Formosa Nat Park which we'll do again, had a stroll around Almancil and popped up to Loule but the market was being refurbed and was in a multi story car park! Didn't like Albufuera (?) - too touristy.
So we like things that are more Portuguese and would welcome any suggestions. Also, anywhere so eat while we're there come to that.
Many thanks again.
