Construction works in Milfontes!
Construction works are taking place in the centre of Vila Nova de Milfontes for an indefinite period. Follow the marks carefully and ask the locals for instructions in case you need to choose parallel streets.
Please be careful!
Between Vila Nova de Milfontes and beach of Furnas, the path initially goes along Rua Custódio Brás Pacheco. Be careful and always walk on the pavement. From the roundabout on the main road to the road bridge (500 m), and from the end of the bridge to the wooden gate that gives access to Vila Formosa (500 m), the path goes along the verge of the road. Walk with the utmost caution, as far over as possible on the right hand verge (N-S) and if walking with children be vigilant.
Remember to close the gate so that the cattle cannot get out of the property.
Be cautious with the cattle
When crossing the property between the gate and the beach of Furnas, take care with the livestock, avoid sudden movements and stay away. Although gentle they do not like strangers approaching their calves.
