Ocean Restaurant is the star in the gastronomic crown of Vila Vita Parc Resort. Austrian Hans Neuner is executive chef at this two Michelin-starred establishment. His secret weapons are his use of local produce, impeccable service for 35 diners and a terrace with views over the gardens.
Golf is one of the reasons why the area is popular with tourists from less benign climates. The sun shines for an average of 300 days a year and temperatures don’t normally drop below 10ºC in winter or rise above 35ºC in summer. The Pine Cliffs golf course is one of the most original. The fairways run down through pine forests on a cliff over the Atlantic. The course has its own accommodation, belonging to The Luxury Collection by Sheraton. In 2016 the resort underwent renovation and opened the new Ocean Suites with one, two or three bedrooms, just a stone’s throw away from Falésia Beach in Albufeira.
Alvor, Falé, Benagil, Amado, Bordeira… The beaches are precisely one of the Algarve’s biggest attractions for their enormous expanses of sand and their beautiful cliffs, caves and rock formations. Pool and lounge lovers can choose between the pools at Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa in Porches. Plus the ones in the four private villas, with access to a restricted area of beach. The resort, which belongs to Leading Hotels of the World, also has its own yacht for trips along the south coast of Portugal in complete comfort.
