DIRECTIONS FROM FARO AIRPORT TO CASA RIDASA
Getting to within 2 miles of Casa Ridasa is very easy. On leaving the airport:- follow the signposts for Faro but do not go into Faro. Follow instead the motorway signs for Portimao and Loule, that will take you along the N125 before you get onto the motorway (IP 1). www.carvoeiro.com website has an illustrated aid on how to get to Carvoeiro from Faro airport via Lagoa but you should get off the motorway at the exit before Lagoa. (Note – Do not confuse Lagoa and Lagos – the latter is about 30 km further west)
When on the motorway keep following the signs for Portimao but exit at Alcantarilha, (Exit 5, I think)– which is the exit before Lagoa and two exits before Portimao, in case you go too far and need to backtrack. (You can stay on the motorway to Lagoa – but it takes you too far west and the attached sketch will not make any sense). Follow the signs to Lagoa on the N125 – second exit off roundabout at motorway exit. Do not take first exit off roundabout to Silves or carry on round roundabout following signs to Alcantarilha.
After you go through Porches, you are almost there. Do not go on as far as Lagoa. You come to a staggered double set of traffic lights by the International School about 6km after motorway exit. See the attached plan. (Note - If you get to a second set of traffic lights about 3km or so further on you have gone too far and will need to retrace your steps). You have to exit off the N125 on the right hand side and do a “U” turn through traffic lights and then go back about 150 metres or so on yourself before turning right i.e. at the traffic lights you need to turn left but you cannot do so. The regulations require that you leave the road on the right backtracking and then take a right hand turn.
Having taken the “backtracked” right hand turn, drive for 1½/2 km, then take a right hand turn signposted - Val Del Rei and Lagoa. After 1 km you will go past a small school, now unused, on the left immediately before a new roundabout. About 300 to 400 metres further on you will come to a small restaurant on the right hand side (Poppy’s –formerly Simplico) If you get lost a local should be able to tell you where this restaurant is). You are almost there. You will then see a small yellow home made sign for Casa Ridasa at the junction of the main road you are on with a dirt track on the left before a white cottage – just after 2 rubbish containers.
Follow the direction of the arrow – i.e. turning left down the dirt track. After 200 metres or so the dirt track forks. Take the right hand narrower fork and keep on driving until you see on your right, after about 150 yards or so, iron gates and “Ridasa” on the left hand pillar. Save for a rustic small holding, 100 yards or so further down the increasingly narrowing and ruttier dead end track, Ridasa is the last house. You are there!
Although, the track is very uneven and pot holed, it is a public highway!
