After a wonderful week in Portugal I am finally back home. Now it is time to show you my second destination of this trip. It is the Vila Vita Parc, a five star luxury hotel and beach resort at the Algarve. My husband and I spent three nights there and experienced various special things. I love Portugal so much, because it feels like my homeland, but it is not so far away like my country of birth Brazil.
Vila Vita Parc is an amazing place where you really can forget your everyday life and enjoy the best things in life.
Our first day started with two highlights, a sea cave boat tour and a dinner at the two Michelin stars Ocean Restaurant. If offers the most breathtaking view over the Atlantic Ocean and the food is just over the top. This place is the perfect mixture between elegance, best service and sublime food. Our sommelier was fantastic too and offered us the best wines. It was an unforgettable experience.
Our second day started with a lot of work. We created marvellous new content for you during this day. But first we had an amazing breakfast at the Bela Vita Restaurant. You can also have breakfast at the Atlântico Restaurant and enjoy an amazing ocean view. I am the kind of person, that can’t live without sports, even when I am traveling. The Vila Vita Parc has a great fitness studio where I made sports every morning. This is the best way for me to start the day. At the evening we had dinner at the Mizu Teppanyaki Restaurant offering the best Japanese gastronomy.
At our third evening we had an amazing wine tasting in their own wine cellar. It is located 8 meters underground.
Built with solid clay bricks, some over 150 years old imported from Egypt, Austria and Greece. The wine cellar hosts over 11ooo wine bottles from Portugal and from all over the world. I felt in love with their wine variety. Later that evening we had dinner at the Adega Restaurant and enjoyed delicious traditional food. We unfortunately didn’t have time to experience all restaurants of this hotel. View the hole range here.
Between meetings and photo shoots we found time to experience their amazing spa and enjoyed a great massage. View all treatments here. Another highlight for me was to spend time at their several pools and at the beach. We had the best weather with 30 degrees and blue sky everyday.
During writing this blogpost it is raining outside and I can hear the wind blowing. You can imagine how I am missing Vila Vita Parc now, right? I really hope to come back soon. Please stay tuned to enjoy the Vila Vita Parc experience a little bit longer. We made several photoshoots for you there. These and my third destination travel diary are coming online soon! Please check my first destination here. It is worth it to check it out. xoxo Georgina
Herdade dos Grous & Frogbox Dress
Portugal WOW! What a country. Sometimes life is really fabulous. When I came back from Marrakech, I just thought that the summer is over for me this year. I started to post the first FW Looks and began to accept the situation like it is. Then unexpected came this great opportunity to travel to Portugal and visit 3 different destinations for my blog. During the next few weeks, I will show you all these destinations and several new fashion shoots made in Portugal. So stay tuned!
The first destination is a beautiful farm called Herdade dos Grous located in the area Alentejo round about 2 hours from Lisbon. It is a hideaway with 24 rooms where you can enjoy the country estate and relax totally. Unfortunately I was there for only one night and had not enough time to see everything, but I had a delicious dinner and breakfast and I also had a wonderful wine tasting. Herade dos Grous produces their own wine.
My new dress comes from the Frogbox FW 18 collection. It is my new favorite piece!
I wore it very often during this trip. It is so cozy. I love its print and colors. Now I am going to work on my next blogpost for you and make me a hot tea. It´s so cold here in Germany! Now I guess I finally have to say goodbye to the summer this year. But anyway, I love the cold season too. Please find more Frogbox looks here. xoxo Georgina
