Make a holiday villa in Aldeia your home away from home

The locale of Faro in the southern tip of Portugal has all the ingredients holidaymakers hope to find in their destination; limitless sun and sand on picturesque beaches where they can both bask and enjoy a variety of exciting outdoor activities. The old town takes visitors back hundreds of years with its quaint housing, cobbled streets and majestic monuments. Nature lovers will also be catered to as they wander through a fascinating national park. One of the places Faro tourists can find conveniently located holiday accommodation is Aldeia, a parish in the Santa Bárbara municipality. Here they can enjoy tranquillity, proximity to the Atlantic coastline and spectacular views. Holiday villas in Aldeia provided by HomeAway are equipped with swimming pools, barbeques, satellite TV and a host of other great facilities.

Things to do

-Religious monuments: Right in Santa Bárbara de Nexe visitors will be able to get a glimpse into Algarve’s rich history with a tour of the Church of Santa Bárbara. This church boasts both Neo-classic and Baroque architecture and started life as a simple chapel in 1444. Not far from it is the Hermitage of Santa Catarina is another ancient chapel which was constructed in the 17th century. The Igreja do Carmo contains the remains of thousands of monks.

-Natural beauty: A boat ride through the Ria Formosa is a must for anyone who claims to be a nature lover. It is a rewarding slalom through barrier islands and the inlets that connect the islands to the sea. Plenty of migratory birds are found in this 170 square kilometre national park, especially in spring and autumn.

-Cultural events: Holidaymakers putting up in Aldeia holiday homes in mid-July will have the opportunity to become spectators of the Faro International Motorcycle Rally. The young and young at heart will not want to miss out on the students’ festival organised by Algarve University every May. This is a chance to dance to live band performance as well as live DJ mixes.

-Beaches: Faro has a number of great beaches where visitors can catch some rays as well as refreshments from beachside bars and restaurants. The Praia da Faro is a long stretch of fine sand that guarantees visitors a bit of seclusion even in the peak seasons. There is also a marina along the coastline where visitors can take unhurried strolls while ogling the boats and yachts moored there.

-Food and drink: The Portuguese possess a unique food culture which holidaymakers in Aldeia holiday rentals will have the opportunity to partake of. Eateries scattered all over the city of Faro will tempt them with exciting menus bearing a blend of traditional Portuguese cuisine and delicacies from other cultures. Camané, O Costa and Le Marquis are some of the more notable establishments.

Weather in Aldeia

Holidaymakers who are looking to spend a few summer weeks in Aldeia holiday homes should make ready their hats and sunscreen as it can get very hot at this time of year. Temperatures average around 29°C between July and August with 30+ days occurring frequently. The warm season is prolonged, lasting from April to October, meaning tourists can have their holiday earlier or later than the peak season and still enjoy temperatures in the twenties. With temperatures averaging in the teens, winters here can hardly be called chilly. There is quite a lot of rainfall in December however.

Travel to Aldeia

The Faro Airport is likely to be the entry point of most visitors flying into Algarve. It becomes one of Portugal’s busiest airports in the summer as holidaymakers from all corners jet in to indulge in the delights of southern Portugal. There are a number of ways arriving travellers can get to their Aldeia holiday rentals from there; they can take the more expensive option of a taxi or take the airport shuttle which goes to the Faro city centre. Public buses are the least expensive means of making this less than 6 mile journey.

Beautiful villa

4 of 5
The villa is very well kept and beautifully furnished with the most amazing pool and lovely gardens. It is situated quite high up and the final approach road is quite narrow but the views over Faro and the coast are stunning. Parking is easy and it is all very quiet. We were there in February in the worst weather the Algarve has seen in years, so were very grateful for the lovely wood stoves and large supply of logs. In good weather it must be lovely. David was very helpful before we left and the management company soon sorted out a problem with the TV. The alarm system can be a bit tricky. We found that you needed to press the keys firmly.

Great villa, beautiful views and great pool!

4 of 5
The Valentina villa was great. It was spacious, very clean at arrival and We loved the heated pool and the garden space. The views from the villa were amazing and the location was great with the mall and supermarket less than 10 min drive away. Olivia and the Almancil team were very attentive and responsive to all our requests. The only downfall is that we were there for a week and there wasn't a cleaning service that came midweek to clean the villa. That's the only reason we're giving the villa a 4 star.
