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.

The pool and outside space are wonderful again with all the beds, chairs and tables you could possibly want for a large family. Quinta Da Balaia, is an aging holiday resort and little tired in places, but is quiet and the shop is well priced and the bar provides affordable and tasty meals. The are issues with the Villa, it is tired and I have seen on other reviews similar comments about the bathrooms, they are functional, but some money needs to be spent refurbishing them. The pool itself is massive and cleaned every day, again a little tired as is the outside area. It just needs the odd jobs sorting out, rather than leaving them to get worse. I must say that the two massive trees which are adjacent to the property do cover the pool and outside area in shade until about 2pm, which I must admit was frustrating, im not sure if they could at least be thinned out to allow mores sunshine? The only real complaint I have is the lack of Air Conditioning, that was a real nuisance, with only having fans in the room, it did get extremely uncomfortable at times. Even if the owners just had AC in the bedrooms, it would make a massive difference. This for me sets the villa apart from others I would look at in the future. All in all we had a fantastic time with plenty of quality time spent with the family in the Villa, I would definitely recommend it, but I urge the owners to look at investing some money into the villa, to bring it back to the standard it deserves.
