We are delighted to focus on some positive news Dear guests, The Portuguese government have reacted exceptionally fast to the COVID-19 outbreak and the results have been rewarding for us in Portugal. We had been on national lockdown since the 18th of March, but as of Sunday the 3rd of May the Portuguese ‘state of emergency’ came to an end. This means that some restaurants, beaches and stores are already carefully reopening for business, and even some limited flights are being scheduled (more info regarding flights are aspected on the 15th of May).
This is an indication that gradually things will go back to 'normal', of course we realise that this still will take some needed time, but we are hopeful to see Portugal back to its beautiful and vibrant self again soon. However, for now, these increased freedoms are good news not only for us as a family living and working in the Algarve, but also for our guests planning to visit us. Below we included some updated official graphics:
We have be very fortunate to not be affected by the outbreak in the South West Algarve, Vila do Bispo district, and we can only account for this being because we are surrounded by vast and open nature. This has also meant that our amazing volunteers have been able to continue over this time to safely help us with our many projects and to prepare ITWA to give you the best holiday ever this summer 2020.
In the meantime, we hope you stay safe, and the whole team looks forward to welcoming you soon at Into the Wild Algarve. For now, Stay safe, Stay Happy. Warm greetings ITWA team.
