    Ferraguda is also a very nice town, not over developed like most of the Algarve.

    I was told that some people were moved off there last year.

    I didn't see it myself though and I am fully aware of the Motorhome Rumour Mill.

    Just thought I would mention it.

    you cant tell why or if you will be moved . some friends spent most of the winter there only a few years ago.
    some you win some you lose. just look somewhere else.

    Only 3 there last week; 2 frogs and a UK Rv, a nice couple who had been there for 2 weeks. The caveat is to walk round first and avoid the soft sand and humps.

    Wonder if the frogs had been there since they were tadpoles? If so the Portugese are back to allowing long stay.
