  • About this holiday

    The five star Vila Vita Parc Resort and Spa is a gem in Portugal’s Algarve. In an area renowned for the beauty of its rocky outcrops and smoothly arced coves, guests who spend their summer holidays here will be placed to enjoy some of the most sublime coastline in Europe. The resort is dignified and full of character, from the furnishings of the public areas inside the main hotel building to the beautifully maintained, gently-sloping grounds with their tropical foliage. Water sports, nearby beaches, stunning coastal roads, ten restaurants, and direct transfers to the nearest town come together to fashion a fantastic beachfront retreat.

    The journey and how you get there

    Expressions bases the holiday on the British Airways scheduled flights from London Gatwick to Faro, but many clients ask us to include an airline from their local airport, either a no-frills airline such as Easyjet or charter flights perhaps with Monarch or Thomson. We are more than happy to include these in the holiday we arrange for you. Once you arrive at Faro, we have a private transfer organised for you, although some clients do ask us to prebook a hire-car instead. The Vila Vita Parc is about 45 minutes away from Faro airport, so an easy journey.


    Included in your holiday

    Expressions Holidays includes scheduled flights with British Airways London Gatwick to Faro, private transfers, and bed and breakfast.

    Holiday prices

    Sample prices are per person based on two people sharing a double garden view room.
    Prices from £1320 per person with accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis for 7 nights.
    Many other room types are available on request from us. The prices displayed here are a guide only for this hotel and each holiday price will be tailor-made at the time of booking to reflect the actual flight costs and all up-to-date special offers.

    Our opinion

    The Vila Vita Parc is a well-equipped resort in Portugal’s most sought-after region. It never fails to impress with its luxury accommodation and excellent facilities.

    Hotel description

    The five star Vila Vita Parc Resort and Spa is a stunning resort complex set amongst beautiful subtropical gardens. Palm trees and bougainvillaea colour the landscape, and the hotel’s backdrop includes a majestic outlook across the cliffs bordered the Atlantic Ocean. The whitewashed Moorish-influenced architecture dazzles in the sunlight, reflecting the style of many of the villages seen throughout the Algarve, with subtle hints of Andalucia in neighbouring Spain. The accommodation at the Vila Vita Parc Resort and Spa is spread across a number of buildings, located in different parts of the grounds, offering excellent choice for groups of any size. The rooms are comfortably furnished, decorated in neutral colours that cast focus onto the greens, blues, and golds outside your window, and benefit from views over the gardens. Vila Vita Parc Resort and Spa has an excellent reputation as a spa hotel, with wonderfully set treatment rooms, personalised therapies, and a range of different classes; yet, the resort is equally well suited to other leisure pursuits, be it exploring the coastline on the resort’s yacht, swimming in one of the eight pools (four of which are for adults, three for children, and one indoor pool), or enjoying the 18-hole putting green. The hotel has direct access to a sandy beach and offers a transfer to the Arte Nautica Beach Club at Armação de Pêra beach. This beach offers a long stretch of fine golden sand, backed by ochre-coloured rocks, and with surreally sublime blue waters extending as far as the eye can see. The ten restaurants continue the extensive choice that is offered throughout the resort, from international cuisine in Bela Vita, to traditional Portugese Specialities in Adega. All guests will be entirely captivated by both the beautiful surroundings and the excellent facilities offered by the Vila Vita Parc Resort and Spa. We would recommend enjoying a week-long stay at the Vila Vita Parc during the summer.
