Die Ferienhäuser bieten jeweils einen Grill auf der eigenen Veranda.
What kind of shopping are there in the area?
In the small town of Aljezur, as well as in Rogil there are different sized supermarkets. Furthermore, there is also the market hall which is open every weekday morning and where you get good fruit / vegetables, as well as fresh fish. Otherwise, the smaller shops are usually highly recommended, as they are not only from the locals, but often cheaper.
Which public transport is there?
Although there is bus traffic leading to other cities. However, this is not so often a day. It is therefore imperative to arrive with a (rental) car.
Which restaurants are especially recommended?
This is a difficult question, because it depends entirely on the taste of an individual. A good but not complete list of great restaurants can be found on our Environment page.
But we can highlight the Restaurant Pont à Pé, for which you have to reserve a table in a tourist season, otherwise you have to wait outside for a while.
How far are the beaches?
From Quinta Reuffurth it takes about 15-20 minutes to most beaches in the area. It is also worthwhile to drive a little further, as the choice of beaches is huge.
From the holiday homes in Rogil, the nearest beach can be reached in less than 4 minutes by car.
Are there any special services on the beaches?
As everywhere, tourism is regularly increasing, which is why there is often a bar or café even on smaller beaches. In addition, almost all beaches are guarded, at least in the main season. Surf schools can be found as well as the famous men and women who sell the little Balls, to recognize that they all call “Olha a bolinha”.
Is there a bike rental?
Although we do not have bicycles, there are some providers in Aljezur, including e-bikes.
How can I pay the toll of the highway?
If you rent a car, you will usually be told that there is an electronic toll collection system on the Algarve A22 motorway for which you can stick a small box in the windscreen to pay the fees directly. It is recommended to have such a “Via Verde” device for the rental car, otherwise you have to go to the local post and pay the fees.
How and where to dispose of household waste?
Usually, wherever there is a collection of houses, there is also a container where you can throw in your garbage. These are public, even if they are near a house. If you want, you can also separate the garbage. In Aljezur, Carrascalinho and Rogil there are 3 colored containers for plastic, glass and paper.
Do I have to show my personal details?
Since 2015, Portugal has required that anyone providing paid holiday accommodation to record the entry, exit and identification data of all non-Portuguese who use the accommodation. The data must be sent to the SEF (Serviço de Estrangeiros e Fronteiras) by the property managers. For this reason, we leave a form in the apartment, which must be filled by the guests with personal information and information about their stay.
Is there a complaint book (Livro de reclamações)?
Yes, as an official and licensed landlord we have a Livro de Reclamações, which every guest gets upon request.
