Idyllic Luxury at Vila Vita Parc
Finding the perfect European resort that combines real world luxury that's also authentically family friendly is something of a challenge, but I think I might just have found it.
We've just returned from an idyllic week at Vila Vita Parc in Portugal and I have to say, this really is a perfect choice for families, combining great facilities, naturally friendly staff and most importantly, those little details such as room service designed for kids, a great, safe playground and super fast restaurant service to combat sleepy (and sometimes grumpy) little ones. There's also an award winning kids club should you want some time away from your little angels...
With a fantastic position above a secluded sandy beach and an abundance of pools, bars and restaurants dotted around the resort, you could easily stay here for your whole holiday and never consider venturing outside, so varied are the facilities here.
Vila Vita is a luxury resort in the old fashioned sense, so you won't find infinity pools, staff who are 'too cool for school' or lots of 'bling', but if you like authentic, traditional service, beautifully kept gardens and a sense that pretty much everything stands up to the closest of scrutiny, then I've a feeling that you'll be very happy here. Very highly recommended.
