Traveling in the South of PortugalAll indicators are that the south of the country will be warmer and sunnier at this time of year. I do not have a car and we will rely on buses and trains. What places do you recommend that are truly special. We will be in Portugal approximately 9 days. In advance, thank you.

1Have just returned from a 5 day stay there had three days of 19 degrees 1 day of 14 whihc locals were saying was very cold, on the coast Tavira and Sagres are beautiful inland Monchique was great, the biking and hiking trails around there are great and lots of companies are now hiring bikes. There is a good train line along the coast not sure about buses but experience in other parts of Portugal have been very good.

2Note that rick7695 asked a similar question here: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/thread.jspa?messageID=20612953#20612953 and nothing indicates he has read any of the replies there.
I wonder why people keep posting questions if they can't be bothered to acknowledge replies to their previous threads or even provide the additional information asked for.

You have bus and train, but you have to be careful because they are not direct. The bus coming from east cost to west cost allways go to Albufeira and from there you need to change bus. The problem is that after 6 you cannot have connection for some places.
In Quarteira I have a friend you can contact.
he knows a little more because he lives there.
enjoy your holiday
