VILA VITA Parc offers a range of exclusive experiences at the Red Chalet, bringing together moments of luxury with the authentic traditions of the real Algarve. The Red Chalet, although secluded, is at the heart of Armação de Pêra, and means that by stepping out of your beachfront sanctuary you can enjoy a wide range of restaurants, experiences, and cultural activities. 

From local tours and artisanal traditions, Armação de Pêra is a village with a rich cultural history to explore. The fishing village offers incredible local seafood that can be served privately by our award winning chefs in the stunning setting of the Red Chalet or enjoyed with a warm welcome in one of the charming restaurants at its doorstep. 

Within the village you can explore many artisanal craft shops and visit several historical buildings, including the fishermen’s chapel opposite the villa.  

Thanks to the Algarve’s perfect year-round climate, the beach is always waiting for you, day and night. In the morning, leave your shoes in your hand as you stroll along 300 m of soft, fine sands and wooden boardwalks to take your pick from three unique restaurants for breakfast.  

Our Beach Club, with three distinct restaurants directly on the sand, is a beacon for foodies with an eclectic cuisine to gently immerse you in the sights and sounds of one of the world’s most stunning beaches. A golden sunrise in the east sets the stage for the day, while warm evening sea breezes are the perfect accompaniment to dinner on the terraces. 

Spend the afternoon relaxing in the comfort of our luxurious shaded sun-beds or challenge yourself with a wide range of supervised water sports. Take surfing lessons, kayak or simply enjoy a quick dip. Whatever your whim, all is at hand. 

A relaxing day on the beach can quickly become a vibrant night as the sun goes down, with a full calendar of events throughout the summer. Linger on as the night unfolds for the sunset sessions and sample creative cocktails as you chill out to our resident DJ…there’s no better place to be as the sun goes down. 

From historical tours to late nights at the beach, at the Red Chalet, everything truly is at your doorstep.
