Re: Processional caterpillars

As I said in an earlier post, I'd never heard of these before but when we were at the villa about a month ago, my German neighbour mentioned them with reference to a pine tree overhanging the garden. She was very worried about the caterpillars.

Carnival

I've read in the February newsletter the suggestion that in addition to a parade on Tuesday 5 March, there may be a parade on Sunday 3 March. Is there any information on plans for Carnival!? Thanks in anticipation

Re: Aircon servicing

Mr Cool was great when our a/c failed - we called into the shop in Lagoa, he followed us to the villa to have a look at the system, ordered a part from Lisbon and drove to the airport to collect it, from Portimao where he was working at the time, all to fix it before we went home!

Is Bella Napoli open?

When we were in cvo in late December/early January, Bella Napoli near Rocha Brava was closed. Does anyone know if it has reopened? We arive in just over a week and usually head there on our first night for ease if we arrive early evening. Thanks

Re: Ladies football at Algarve Stadium

Thanks for the responses - I suspect that the Algarve Cup is the event. Looks like we'll have to wait for another year as we're in the Algarve until late Feb/ very early March then not back until mid June.

Ladies football at Algarve Stadium

I've been told there's a ladies football tournament on sometime in June 2019. Despite spending quite a bit of time searching online, I can't finding anything. Having driven past the stadium on many occasions, we've never been to a game and would like to do so. Can anyone help?

Re: Planning for next year's trips

I usually get a notification on my phone that flights have been released for the next time period. This time ie last week, I got a notification the day before, so booked for October early on the release day. Good service
