Cobbled pathways and calming water features bring together the village ambience that suits families and couples equally well, combining exceptional accommodation with superb dining options in a choice of ten seasonal restaurants and seven bars.
In addition to fine gourmet dining at the intimate two Michelin-starred Ocean Restaurant and the Aladin Grill, you can find traditional Portuguese fare at Adega, one of many alternative dining options. Take the opportunity to taste one of the fine wines from the 1,200 label selection in the Cave de Vinhos.
Recreational facilities are second to none, including tennis, seasonal watersports and pitch and putt, or board the Vila Vita yacht to visit the Algarve’s tiny bays and coves, only accessible by boat. The Health Club boasts an indoor/outdoor heated pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, ice cave and steam bath, whilst a complete range of massage and therapy treatments await in the ancient Roman-inspired spa. Children are superbly catered for with every facility from a crèche to Annabella’s kids’ park.
The impressive restaurants and bars here are supplied with fine vintages and fresh organically grown produce from their own wine estate and working farm. Surrounded by 700 hectares of countryside, Herdade Dos Grous - which represents the current pioneering spirit of Portugal's winegrowing business like no other estate - is a one hour drive inland. Explore the vineyard on horseback then quaff tasters of the farm's delicacies. Wine tastings and pairings are available in the arched wine cellar back at the resort, located 26 feet below ground.
Southern Portugal including the Algarve enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot dry summers and mild winters. July and August are hot but temperatures are moderated by sea breezes. A good time to visit Portugal is May to June and September to October, where days are pleasantly warm and sunny.
