My wife and I like to have total privacy at least around the pool area and this villa gave us that and more. There are two other villas close by but neither overlook Casa Alfarroba in any way and neither have any barking dogs unlike other areas we’ve stayed. Two other villas not so close by would theoretically be able to spy on the pool but not without military grade binoculars.
It was our ruby wedding anniversary when we stayed and as a surprise for my wife I requested fresh flowers throughout the villa and some champagne which were both arranged very stylishly and with no fuss. The flowers lasted our two weeks, the champagne unfortunately didn’t.
Another pleasant surprise was the kitchen (my domain on holiday), fully loaded with pots, pans, crockery, glassware and all appliances in full working order including a huge fridge with freezer and a smaller built in beer fridge.
We used the downstairs double bedroom with access directly to the heated pool. Lovely comfy bed ensuring a good nights sleep and four steps out to a morning swim before breakfast.
Lovely views down the valley to Faro, peace ,quiet and the privacy we enjoy. A good selection of local restaurants with good food a short drive away.
A spotlessly clean and well presented villa which we hope to return to next year.
Full five stars, no ifs,buts or maybes.
This is beautifully presented villa which has everything we and our young children needed for a great holiday. The villa is very spacious, very well appointed and maintained. The tennis court is great and the heated pool is a perfect size with steps leading in. The location is perfect, ten minutes from Sao Bras, fifteen minutes to Loule and half an hour from all the good beaches. The villa is set on a very quiet lane with fantastic views and all the large windows have electric shutters. The garage is great for keeping the car cool and also has table soccer and table tennis. We would fully recommend this villa and will be happy to return.
