Our program of the day in the Algarve

Our program of the day in the Algarve

9 am: What if the perfect day started with waking up in front of the sea? At Villanovo, we believe that this is a detail that can transform our day. There is nothing like the magnificent Villa Idillya in the heart of Albufeira and its splendid view of the beach or the very luxurious Villa Paraiso in Lagoa. 
10:00 am: To wake up body and mind, we start the day with some sport or yoga session directly in your villa. An optimal moment to stay in shape during your vacation without having to move from home, followed by a breakfast on the terrace under the sun with the sweet pleasures typical of the region. 
11:00 am: We then continue the morning with one of the many markets of the Algarve, each one more attractive than the other. Every town and small village in the region offers its market during the summer period and it is a unique opportunity to discover the local knowledge and crafts of the island through a walk with delicious scents. You will discover a glimpse of the life habits of the inhabitants. It will also be the time to stock up on delicious quality products!
1 pm: After having crossed the market halls, we will have a lunch break ideally in Cais Ao Mar, in Albufeira. It's a traditional place with a very pleasant atmosphere on the beach. Here you will taste delicious freshly caught seafood and you can accompany your lunch with a delicious wine from the region thanks to the great wine culture of the Algarve
2:30 pm: Then comes the moment of idleness, but also the opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches of the coast. Direction to Marinha Beach, classified as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world for the clarity of its water and the large cliffs that surround it, reminiscent of the landscapes of Thailand. It will be the ideal place to take the sun while enjoying the natural landscapes of the island.
If you are more into hiking and active discovery of natural landscapes then the natural park of Ria Formosa, a perfect alternative to the afternoon beach. 
5 pm: Then enjoy visiting one or more of the charming villages of Algarve, each one more welcoming than the other. Indeed, they all have a unique charm that you can't get tired of. We particularly recommend the village of Monchique where the craftsmanship continues. 
7 pm: Return to your villa to enjoy the assets of your luxury home, indeed, we grant ourselves a well-deserved swim in the private pool or an aperitif in the sun from the terrace. An ideal moment with family or friends to relax from this day rich in discoveries!
8:30 pm: Finally, we end our busy day with a delicious dinner to discover the local gastronomy. Several options will then be offered to you, the one to stay quietly in your villa and enjoy a meal concocted by a chef exclusively for you or to go to one of the best restaurants on the island. Unique experience guaranteed!
