The history of VILA VITA Hotels dates back to 1980, the year the first teams of ’Deutsche Vermögensberatung’ began to travel to Austria. Prof. Dr. Reinfried Pohl, with his wife Anneliese and their two sons, regularly took teams of financial advisors and their families to Pannonia in the Austrian Burgenland. Pannonia thus represents the cradle of this exquisite, small hotel group that today includes five hotels and a vineyard. These hotels are very popular meeting venues not only for financial advisors, but also offer perfect facilities for a variety of conferences and seminars.
1992 the beach resort VILA VITA Parc on the Portuguese Algarve coast was the newest addition to the group and became an instant success. The stylish luxury resort, a member of ’Leading Hotels of the World’ was named runner-up in the category ’Best Beach Resort in Europe’ by the renowned travel magazine ’Geo Saison’.
Since 1997 the hotel group includes the private vineyard ’Herdade dos Grous’ in the Portuguese Alentejo region. In addition to growing award-winning wines, the estate has started to breed horses as well as cattle and produces excellent olive oils.
From the very beginning, Anneliese Pohl took charge of the design and concept development for the different hotels. It is due to her guidance that each hotel exudes its own personal ambience, is built in harmony with the surrounding countryside and decorated with careful attention to detail. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed and it is not a surprise to see a large amount of return customers booking VILA VITA Hotels on a regular basis.
Set on 54 spectacular acres of lush, blooming subtropical gardens in front of a striking coastline, at VILA VITA Parc a choice of exquisitely appointed accommodations can be experienced, from rooms and suites to villas with terraces and ocean panoramas.
Perched above the cliff top andlocated in various distinct buildings, each having its own character and architecture, the different accommodation types exude an air of sophisticated, refined luxury and are all surrounded by a spectacular park landscape offering breathtaking views.
True culinary delights in an unimagined diversity is one of the trademarks of VILA VITA Parc. 8 varied restaurants, 6 bars and an impressive wine cellar located at a depth of 8 meters under the ground will make every stay a culinary adventure.
The two Michelin-star rated fine dining restaurant, the beach restaurant and the typical Portuguese ’Adega’ all share a common belief in superior quality and freshness of the ingredient used in their creations.
With almost 950 km of coastline, Portugal has a special relation with the Atlantic Ocean. The Algarve, besides being privileged with calm waters and gentle weather, also features a unique marine ecosystem, with the largest natural reef in Portugal sitting just in front of VILA VITA Parc - perfect for scuba divers.
