This week we shine a Spotlight on Sesil Home on Rua do Comercio in Almancil.
This shop is a bit of a hidden gem for home decor enthusiasts; its exterior has an elegant beach feel to it, but you won’t realise how big the shop is until you walk through it. It really is a multi-room wonderland of home decor.
This week we visited Natura Garden Centre in Almancil, they stock the biggest collection of plants in the Algarve which is very impressive, they provide landscaping services, and have a pop-up restaurant nestled within the gardens in Spring & Summer months.
Adrienne & her little Dachshund Hubert appeared for today’s Spotlight to share some information about the dog care facilities in the Central Algarve, and some tips for travelling with your dog. The Algarve has a lot of fantastic amenities for pets, so if you are coming to Portugal with your dog, or already living in the area, we hope these tips will help!
The Easter Festivities are beginning in Quinta Do Lago and there’s loads to do this beautiful, sunny weekend!
The list of things to do in the Algarve is endless; we are so lucky to have incredible weather for lots of sports, outdoor activities, and relaxation here.
There is nothing like Portuguese cuisine, and Quinta do Lago is home to some of the best restaurants in Portugal! We feel truly lucky living here with so many genuinely incredible restaurants to choose from. You definitely don’t want to miss out on what this area has to offer.
A brand new Pretzel shop has opened in Loulé beside the market hall, just off the roundabout. @bom.pretzel is the only Pretzel stand in the Algarve, and actually possibly the whole of Portugal!

This week I dropped into United Kitchens of India, the recently-opened Indian restaurant on the road from Almancil to Vale do Lobo, just past The Village. What an absolute treat! I love this restaurant because the food is really packed with flavour.
Mrudula brought me into the kitchen to show me how the food is made, come see whit me !

It’s coming to that time of year when processionary caterpillars are commonly seen in Portugal. The lines they form can be quite striking, but take caution with these eye-catching insects! If touched, the bristles on their body can cause skin irritation, eye inflammation, and difficulty breathing in both humans and dogs.
Here are some points worth keeping in mind and sharing with others, especially for newcomers to Portugal who may not have happened upon them before.
