CLIFFTOP CALM If you’re in pursuit of guaranteed sunshine, the Algarve in Portugal can boast of more than 300 sunny days annually. Just 35 minutes by car from Faro airport is Vila Vita Parc, in a prime clifftop location with panoramic sea views and access to a secluded beach. Across the resort are 180 rooms, suites and villas, many of which are newly renovated, and you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to wining and dining; there are eight restaurants, including the two Michelinstarred Ocean restaurant, six bars and a wine cellar. Adventurous types can sail (on the hotel’s 72-foot yacht, available for private charter), golf, bike or swim, while spa junkies can enjoy treatments by celebrity podiatrist Margaret Dabbs and the Hypoxi studio.
