Heather and Les, Silves area AEO´s have been working hard in arranging this fantastic joint day out.
Coach pick ups from Portimão and Lagoa to the Olive oil factory in Moncarapacho, for a morning tour of the groves, factory and tasting of three different oils.  Followed by a relaxing lunch in a Moncarapacho restaurant, and then Quarteira for coffee or ice cream before returning by coach. A fun full trip!
Approximate price €38 for members, €39 for non members, to include coach, entrance fees and lunch.  Lunch menu to be confirmed.
IMPORTANT:  please inform us as soon as possible, how many places you would like and if your also require coach transfer.
I am currently busy arranging by popular demand our joint June Silves event, of a boat trip from Portimão to Silves.
We hope as many members will register in order to arrange 2 boats, leaving Portimão in the morning to travel up the Rio Arade to Silves, arriving near lunchtime. 
Lunch in Silves is at the Churrasqueira Valdemar, with an hour for members to walk around Silves if they wish.  
A local Portuguese historian and nature specialist will provide an interesting fun informative talk about the river, surrounding nature and animals, throughout the event and return journey.
A date is to be confirmed as a high tide is needed, so email reminders will be sent closer to the time with the date, price and full details.
I look forward to welcoming you to the events, and please do bring family and friends with you.  Look out for email updates as we progress.
Warm regards
