Just because you’re on honeymoon, it doesn’t mean it has to be just the two of you. In fact, more of us than ever are ’mooning with our family and friends. For that, space is key, and you’ll get it in spades at Vila Vita Parc’s lofty villas.
This is the place for short-haul loveliness, where blue skies and sunshine come (pretty much) as standard, and there’s lots on offer to wear out family members of all ages – from private yacht excursions to can’t-get-them-off-them trampolines. The resort’s four villas (ranging from two to six bedrooms) are so luxe, you won’t have to lift a finger, with fridges bulging with Ruinart Champagne and private butlers to attend to your every whim (think lazy poolside meals and rooftop cocktails).

A hop, skip and a jump away is the main resort, and as a guest at the villas you’re free to use all the facilities, from the two-Michelin-starred restaurant Ocean (order the melt-in-the-mouth Azores tuna and pancake) to the brand-new Sisley spa, the only place in Portugal that offers the signature Golden Quartz Treatment; we were massaged on a bed set with tiny crystals as soothing singing bowls were played around us. Paradise found! THE LUXE TOUCH We stayed in the clifftop Vila Trevo. Shoulder your way in first to nab the blue room for views of the glittering Atlantic sea from your bed.
