March 2017 – Villa Folly Update

Well it is some considerable time since we left a blog – but with the season rapidly approaching, here is an update on the villa.

Firstly, the improvements we have made in the last 18 months – the outside of the villa has been redecorated, as has the whole of the inside. New leather sofas have been bought for the lounge and new curtains for both the lounge and the dining room.

Wow the food near the Villa is so fantastic

We have found so many fantastic new restaurants near the villa in the last year for both lunch and dinner, venues you will not be disappointed with. A Prato do Dia 3 course lunch at Gamboa or Nosso in Almancil (including just half a litre of wine and a coffee!!!) for €7.50 to a dinner at Flor de Sal that you will never be disappointed with.  By the way, for me Flor de Sal is the Nouvelle Cuisine of Portuguese cooking producing great quality, flavour and not letting you go home hungry – don’t miss it.

Bentos Restaurant in Faro

Great meal, great company

On Sunday we went to a restaurant in Faro (follow the harbour round to the old walled town and it is on your right) for lunch and we met the owner. The restaurant is called Vivmar Restaurant de Bento Algarvia and we met the owner Antonio Joao Bento, the walls are plastered with his boxing achievements in the super lightweight categories. He is 38 and still boxing.  I have to say that he is very charming and does not look or sound like I expected a veteran world champion boxer to be.  The restaurant is traditional Portuguese, great value and good food served up by Antonio, if he is there, or his wife.
