Each player plays a chain of dominoes called a train; they may also play on the common chain called the Mexican Train. The player with the lowest points score at the end of the game wins. There are many events along the way that block the trains and make for an exciting game. Bring friends and join visitors to the Holiday Inn for some fun.

Christmas Walk

Christmas Walk 2013

Walkers gathered at Paderne to enjoy a lovely walk in the sunshine. A wonderful way to start the festive season joining  with friends in stroll around our beautiful Portuguese countryside whilst supporting charities in Loulé and Silves who do an amazing job collecting and distributing food around the needy of the Algarve.

The walk was a gentle 6kms in length on tarmac roads, tracks and paths.  During the walk we visited, Paderne’s Moorish Castle on its promontory overlooking the Ribeira de Quarteira together with an ancient Roman bridge, the remains of a water mill and a well preserved bee-hive faggot oven. The walk started at the Public Laundry “Antigo Lavadouro Publico Paderne”and was followed by a traditional Portuguese lunch at Paraiso do Algarve.

Walkers suggested to get together again in the Spring when the spring flowers and orchids will be at their best.
