After a flurry of guests staying in two of our holiday apartments, Adega do Tinto, and Adega do Branco in late May and early June, we are empty this week. The weather has improved dramatically, and is daily in the mid 30s C. Guests arrive again next week with two people arriving on Thursday to rent Adega do Branco for two weeks, lets hope the good weather continues. We are off today to see two friends who have been away for a little over six months. We are having a late celebration of his birthday in a restaurant at Linhares, a hillside village with a small castle towards the Spanish border. After that we will be visiting a friend who has just moved to a new house near Carregal do Sal.
