As a family, we have been visitors at Villa Alfarroba for the last 8 years so needless to say we love it and every year there are improvements...there is a new fridge and a bigger TV this year!!
We tend to go out for a couple of days but mostly stay round the villa – the kids are happiest playing in the pool all day which we pay to have heated which is a godsend – we also opt for draft beer and wine which we all indulge in and love.
This year, however, our holiday was slightly different. My elderly parents have always joined us on holiday and really look forward to it but they are getting frail and less mobile. On the first night of our holiday, my father had a bad fall which required an emergency ambulance and a trip to Faro hospital, after which he was allowed home to rest and that is when Jo and Paul came into their own. They provided us with a wheel chair, a shower chair, a toilet seat raiser and an extra bed downstairs so that I could be close at hand as necessary. I am not sure many villa owners would have had all those things available. Nothing was too much trouble and with their help, Dad was able to get through the week.
I cannot rate Villa Alfarroba and more importantly, Jo and Paul, enough – don’t have second thoughts about booking – just get in quick. We have already booked for 2019!
