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.

For feedback, it would be great for the owners to leave a visitors guide of how to use certain things in the villa, light positions and areas that are out of bounds etc. We found that the villa does not have a very recognisable address, so details of taxi companies who know the area really well would have saved us lots of time giving directions to uber drivers until we did! The main downside that we all felt was the beds, really uncomfortable and all of them had a squeak, so if the owners could look at doing something about that, I think the stay would have been perfect! To end on a good point, the owners and housekeepers were really responsive and very friendly, so any issues we had were solved quickly. Really recommend this villa for a chilled and enjoyable holiday!

Before you go, you're always concerned that the listing won't be exactly as shown, and that there will be some reason you wish you had gone somewhere else. Absolutely not the case here! This home is very well situated to explore the Algarve, yet out of the hustle and bustle of the larger hotels and busy beach areas. Mind you, with only a short drive to the local beach, it was never an inconvenience. The home was spotless when we arrived, and had all of the amenities you would expect. (As people who love to cook, though, the only thing I would recommend is that you take a proper kitchen knife.) We had one dinner at the local restaurant, the Dourado, and were impressed by their selection, quality and presentation. It is within easy distance of Albufeira, either by local bus or by car (essential for staying here). Our hostess Angelika was very friendly, knowledgeable and always helpful. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is not in constant "party mode", but wants to relax and enjoy the Algarve amenities.
