Vila Vita Parc Resort
Description and Location
The award winning Vila Vita Parc Resort is set on a romantic cliff top location, with pathways leading through the extensive tropical gardens covering 54 acres to a delightful cove beach. One of the most popular hotels in the region, offering a traditional Portuguese quality with some fine modern touches. 40 minutes from Faro Airport.
The 173 rooms and suites are in four main clusters around the garden, many with sea facing aspect albeit from a distance with just a few having direct ocean view. The rooms are simple and traditional, perfectly capturing the style of the Algarve. In the main building you have the deluxe rooms, whilst the Residence junior suites are in a separate garden cluster.
The Oasis Parc cluster has a Moorish village style, and offers junior, one and new two bedroom suites which are ideal for families. This area is particularly family focused with a separate swimming pool and infants rock splash pool.
Facilities and Activities
Facilities include numerous restaurants including a rather nice seasonal alternative beach front option a few minutes’ drive away (the hotel operates a shuttle), two swimming pools, tennis courts, health club and gym, attractive spa, pitch and putt golf. Kids club from 4 to 11 years (open 7 days a week during the months of June to September, weekdays only at other times), with a crèche for the younger children and during the peak season a teens club. A selection of water sports can be arranged from a nearby beach during the months of June to mid September with the hotel providing a shuttle service.
Vila Vita has its own vineyard at Herdade Dos Grous at Alentejo, a one hour drive inland, and the hotel will be delighted to make arrangements for you to visit. In our view Portugal has some of the finest wines in the world, as most connoisseurs will endorse, and this option will certainly add to your appreciation, plus you get to see the delights of the region away from the coast.
A further option to be considered is the idea of chartering the resort’s own fully crewed yacht, an ideal way to discover some hideaway coves and beaches.
Chic Check – Vila Vita Parc Resort is one of our personal favourites. We particularly like the combination of design styles, some of which are highly individual and rather deliberately quirky, the fantastic gardens, the sense of space, and the delightfully virtually ‘private’ beach. The appeal is to both couples and families, with certain areas and restaurants available to adults only, a policy we think rather adds to the attraction particularly to stressed out adults. During the months of June to September the focus will probably be on the beach, with spa and golf taking preference in the autumn and winter months.
