Make a holiday apartment in Vale Navio your home away from home

Few places along the southern tip of Portugal combine natural beauty and historic flair like Albufeira. And to make matters all the more enjoyable there is the sublime weather featuring uninterrupted hours of sunshine daily. Visitors who opt for holiday homes in Vale Navio will have the stunning beaches of this part of Algarve at their disposal and have the luxury of exploring the dense flora and abundant fauna in Albufeira’s national parks. This besides oodles of outdoor activities and an exciting nightlife. Visitors can look forward, after a fun-filled day, to peaceful repose in Vale Navio holiday apartments and villas. HomeAway has a great range of holiday accommodation in this locality to suit the needs of different kinds of traveller. There are holiday apartments in Vale Navio of different sizes, all impeccably furnished, some commanding incredible views, others with private pools.

Things to do

-Beaches: The unlimited sunshine pouring down from the heavens onto the kilometres of fine, golden sand that border the Atlantic are the perfect recipe for hours of sunbathing and lengthy promenades. At the Praia dos Pescadores offers holidaymakers this typical seaside experience as well as tantalising barbecued fish specialities from beach restaurants whose aroma is sure to tempt peckish tourists. There are also bars where they can quench their thirst.

-Water sports: While at the beach tourists can choose to awaken the child in them with a bit of water sport. Right on the coastline are a number of diving centres where they can hire gear for scuba diving expeditions and also get lessons. Anglers are also invited to hire boats and set out with their fishing equipment in search of that prize catch. But those who just want to admire the many vessels nestled in the marina are allowed to do so.

-Old Town: Albufeira’s beginnings as a small fishing village are still very much evident and while strolling through the old town one will encounter the whitewashed Moorish houses that dominated the area after the Moors arrived in the 13th century. Visitors will also come across the remains of an ancient Roman castle, much of which was unfortunately devastated by the 1755 earthquake. Tourists will naturally want to leave their Vale Navio holiday rentals for a relaxed afternoon in the old town square sipping coffee and thinking about nothing.

-Amusement park: Thrill-seekers will want to dedicate an hour or two of their itinerary to Parque Aventura, especially those who’ll be holidaying as a family. At this centre they can challenge their fear of heights by walking along lofty rope bridges. There are different heights for different age groups (and levels of confidence). Paintball is also available for those yearning to unleash the marksman in them.

-Food and drink: Question: can one get Indian food in a Portuguese coastal town? Yes. Travellers booking self-catering holiday rentals in Vale Navio need not worry about getting their favourite dishes as there is a rich diversity of restaurants offering all kinds of delicacies. At the Great India Tandoori one can have all the naan and spicy curries they can eat. But if they want authentic Portuguese cuisine, the Dom Carlos Restaurant is the place to go.

Weather in Vale Navio

As one would expect of a coastal Portuguese location, sunshine is plentiful in Vale Navio, as it is in the rest of Albufeira and the greater Algarve region. The warmth begins all the way in April with temperatures climbing into the twenties after a mildly chilly winter of 16-17°C averages. As we enter the traditional summer months of June, July and August temperatures predictably escalate beyond 27°C, even surpassing the 30°C mark on occasion. After this hot and dry spell, the climate cools down steadily back into the teens.

Travel to Vale Navio

Albufeira is just about 16 miles from Faro Airport, the main international gateway into Portugal’s Algarve region. Visitors will have no problems finding tickets for Faro-bound flights regardless of which corner of Europe they’ll be travelling from, especially during summer when most airlines operate seasonal flights. When they get to Faro visitors can use a taxi if they can afford to part with 40 Euros or more. The alternative is taking the public bus which costs less than €5 and will have them at their Vale Navio holiday homes in an hour or so.

We walked to all amenities but if you took a taxi it would cost less than 5 Euro to the supermarket in the heart of the town. We had a lovely stay, the villa was clean, tidy and the pool was cleaned throughout our stay. Both adults and children had a great time.

If you don't want to be in a concrete jungle of apartments this Villa and pool will fit the bill. The outside space is stunning with a lovely pool and BBQ area. Do not use Sixt car hire they rip you off. Two couples in front of us had trouble with problems - rip in tyre (280€) or alloy wheel trims are marked (100€) or for us bumper marked, my son would not accept this and they did not charge us. Do print out your own directions to find the place it's rather tricky and the hire company has no maps. We had to ask the caretaker to meet us because we were ill prepared and regretted not printing out directions. The owners are friendly and helpful. It's a stunning place with a good layout.

The villa is very spacious with all bedrooms en-suite. Very large kitchen reasonably well equipped . Large lounge and inside dining area. Lovely terrace overlooking the pool with big table and plenty of seating. There is a b b q area with sink. There are two pools one of which is supposed to be for children, however as others have said it is not really a children's pool due to the depth. The large pool could do with a clean around the edges. From the villa you can walk into the town and supermarket in about 20 mins. We did most days, the walk is across a track over rough ground and is very uneven in places. The walk along the road would take much longer and you would need a car. We didn't have a car so used taxis and the transport organised by the owner. Both very reliable and inexpensive. All in all a nice villa in a quiet area. It is all a little dated though and could do with some TLC and updating.
