near Corte Pereiro, Faro (Portugal)

Descend through the cork oak forest into the family agricultural valley of Meia Viana, up past a local bakery (hidden) and up onto a plateau. Follow the forestry trails upward toward the wild fire watchtower at the top of the volcanic Picota mountain, the "Little Sister" of Foia. A gentle windy road will bring you down through cultivated terraces past the Cooperative to the Pé da Cruz Square (near Intermarche). Continue down the Estrada Velha and then climb briefly till the Luar da Foia restaurant, after which you can descent to comfort and rest at Vila Foia.
