The southernmost region of Portugal is one of Europe’s favourite holiday destinations and well known for its glorious year round sunshine and excellent sandy beaches. Popular with families, golfers and sports enthusiasts, the Algarve also offers smaller historic resorts – there really is something for everybody.
Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa
Characteristic to the Moorish style of the Algarve’s coastline, the Vila Vita Parc is perched on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The accommodations are housed in a wide variety of dwellings (main resort building, Residence, Oasis Parc and the Vital Suites), all linked by cobbled paths winding through the sub-tropical landscaped gardens. There are also five luxury villas – ideal for families who like to combine independence with the facilities of a five star resort.
Vila Vita Parc is ideal for a family who like to stay active on holiday. The hotel offers a wealth of activities which include scuba diving, snorkelling, water skiing, canoeing, boat trips and big game fishing. There’s a kid’s park, a crèche, babysitting facilities and plenty of summer activities for teenagers of 12 years old and over including soccer, surfing lessons and a jeep adventure tour.
