Vila Vita Parc, Algarve, Portugal
A beautiful resort that respects Portuguese craftsmanship in its décor from local colourful tiles to mini bars housing local delicacies. The sense of authenticity and place combined with pure luxury and comfort at its heart, not to mention outstanding ocean views and a plethora of pools, make this a family resort to remember, though couples and friends will feel at home too. Culinary offerings include the mouth-watering two Michelin-starred 'Ocean Restaurant' with creative, often fun dishes influenced by Portuguese roots, ingredients and tradition. Rustic Algarve cuisine and sustainable organic restaurants also feature; you'll be spoilt for choice. For culture vultures there's the option to book an experience at their traditional Portuguese Red Chalet, a beautiful ocean-facing mansion house built at the turn of the century.
The Vila Vita yacht excursion to see the ethereal sea caves and beach coves was immense, especially the famed Benagil - a beach within a cave.
The Algarve is famed for its beautiful beaches and there are several within walking distance of the resort.

We loved our suite with access to a secluded garden so we could sunbathe just outside on a lounger with ocean views. The Red Chalet, a 1908 Portuguese ocean-facing mansion, can be booked to experience the local town on its doorstep with the hotel's five-star perks; a plush, private affair.
