April Newsletter


Happy Easter everyone. On behalf of APPDR´s committee I hope that you and your family have the best of celebrations, restrictions permitting of course! For those of you in countries going through a 3rd wave of Covid, stay safe and lets all hope that things get better for you soon.

Elsewhere things are getting better as restrictions have brought the number of cases down and the vaccination programmes progress. We hope it is not too long now before you can all get back to our beautiful Praia del Rey.

Our estate has got even more beautiful this month. Two painting projects have been completed in Descobertas and in Aldeia Don Fernando, a new calçada footpath has been built behind the children´s playground, and the project to build new surrounds for all our green bins continues, with an end of April completion date. We have also quickly repaired some calçadas recently “re-arranged” by a delivery driver near Vila da Praia.

Improvements such as these, together with our security, road cleaning, common garden maintenance and fly spraying programmes are funded by the majority of home owners, the golf club and the hotel who contribute to our Annual Maintenance Programme. Thank you to all who contribute and I appeal to the minority who chose not to to reconsider this, everyone (residents and visiting renters) benfits from the programme and improvements.

Easter should see a change in flow of trucks leaving the quarry. Until now empty trucks have entered the quarry from a back road leading to the old turkey farm and filled trucks have left the exit close to our estate. After a major project inside the quarry the plan now is for both arriving and leaving trucks to use the “turkey farm road”. Hopefully our work is now completed on this and we will experience less dust, less noise and less road damage between our entrance and the Lavrador restaurant going forward.

We continue to lobby on the state of the PDR to Serra del Rei road and we are close to concluding our research into the gas network onsite, hopefully we will have news on these in my next newsletter.

The 7th Community Programme for Maintenance & Security Services (P7) will commence on the 1st March 2021 and will again run for 12 months. 

The full details and budget are available under the ‘Your Resort’ section above.

We are very pleased to say that we are on track to achieve our contribution target for P6 as we enter the final month, which really is good news. As always it is thanks to each and every owner that continues to support the initiative in maintaining PDR to the standards we can enjoy.

As an Owners' Association we will always remain committed to protecting your investment at PDR and would therefore ask you to now contribute to the P7 Programme. 

To review the information on how to make your contribution please click the following links.

Note If you are an owner in a condominium, please check with your Condominium Chairman / Condominium Manager if they already collect these contributions from you with the Condominium fees before you contribute direct, to avoid any possible duplicate payments.

About The Owners Association

The Praia D’El Rey Owners Association (Associacao de Proprietarios na Praia D’El Rey – APPDR) is an independent not-for-profit organisation with a rapidly growing membership, currently standing at over 600.

Our main overriding objective is to work for the benefit of all PDR owners, especially in matters affecting maintenance and future development of the resort.

The Association, which is run entirely by member volunteers, was fully involved in creating the current PDR Maintenance and Security Programme which started on 1 March. The Programme covers 24 hour security, public area maintenance and fly control and has already made a major difference to the resort, which had deteriorated badly during 2015.
