Portimao LPPM is situated on the South coast of Portugal approximately 30 nms west of Faro.
It has a hard runway 859 x 30 mtrs orientated 11/29. We arrived late afternoon and were able to park the aircraft between 2 hangars as strong winds were forecast.
One of our team had an aircraft based at Portimau as they had a house nearby and that may have helped with the welcome we received.
We stayed overnight in the Pestana Defim, a large muti storey hotel and went to the beach nearby for an excellent evening meal. (RWO 13.7.10).
