Stumbled on this story about Vale Navio.....Makes the place seem even more creepy. Some of you on here may remember the case as you have mentioned dates before 1990 on previous Vale Navio thread but it said topic closed so I could not add to end.

Tonisdad,, yes, Cubsur put a link up about four or five years ago, I did a load of research and found stacks more, all was posted on here. Even went and photographed the “Wonkey Donkey”... it was a sad, derelict, abandoned area that had once been such a joyous place... the accused now released and back in UK... I tried to make contact but no success.
One heck of a story, I have my thoughts, I doubt we will never know now for certain.
And also, if you didn’t know, it’s all flattened, Vale Navio, now all gone.

Came past there last Wednesday and I think you'll find it's currently being re-developed with new houses.
I hate how peopleï compare Frank Zappa to God. I mean, he's cool and great and nice and everything, but he's no Zappa.

Andrew I tried a search on the forum for Vale Navio and all I could get was one closed topic.
The complex certainly seems to have had some history.
If you have any links would be interested to see?

Hi Everyone
First time poster.
I often walk through Vale Navio and down by the horse riding centre. I had seen the piles of rubble behind the Atlantico hotel and did think that the place felt a bit strange...now I can understand why.....it’s fascinating to read the story and see what it looked like back then. It’s hard to imagine a thriving , happy community there at one time and then the tragedy of the murders.
There are some nice villas there and I noticed some of the older ones being refurbished . Given its location hopefully this area is recovering.

Tonisdad,
Maybe Cubsur can unlock it?
If not I have the UK Parlimentary debate on the possible miscarriage but it’s out in Portugal, I can at a future date scan and either post or email that for you.
What I do have are some pictures, then and now sort of thing but I’m here, there and everywhere for a bit now so I’ll try and post those later.

Found a bit on the net about this place and the sad and shocking murder that took place!
Talk of gangsters moving into Albufeira at that time , fascinating!

Here we go, I had to do some digging to find this, Vale Navio in it's hey day before it's dramatic demise.
The 'now' pictures I'm still searching for, maybe on computer in Portugal though I thought they were all synced, my 'puters that is. I'll post them if I find them but they have all been posted on here before, likely in that locked thread.
It's interesting to see the level of interest in this local history a second time round, maybe third, on here.

I find it really interesting, I hadn’t heard of it before, it was one of the first timeshares in Portugal and the largest .
I found the photos of the ghost resort now , but I can’t get them on here.

I think we lost all the old photos that were on here when we changed server a couple of years ago
