Gourmet Food and Fine Wine at Vila Vita Parc in the Algarve
ViLA VITA PARC, a prestigious Leading Hotel of the World on the Algarve’s illustrious coast, is proud of its food provenance, so much so, it boasts its own organic farm and almost 1,500 acres of vineyard. Hotel guests are invited to visit the farm and wine estate which is approximately 100 km from the hotel to learn about horse-breeding, organic farming and the cultivation of award-winning wines.
VILA VITA Parc is also home to Ocean, the hotel ́s two-Michelin star signature restaurant where award-winning Executive Chef Hans Neuner heads up this highly sought-after eatery. Ocean won its first Michelin star in November 2009, followed in November 2011 by its second star, which made it one of only two restaurants in Portugal to hold the honour of two Michelin stars. With spectacular Atlantic views from its terrace, Ocean offers the perfect combination of sublime food, seamless service and an atmosphere of casual elegance.
Whilst Hans Neuner’s mantra of ‘keep it simple’ might initially seem at odds with the normal Michelin philosophy, his seasonally changing menu is technically perfect and exacting, and showcases a remarkable and incredibly distinctive light touch. Hans prides himself on creating light, modern, fresh and individual food with a local signature. A strong focus is on seafood from the Atlantic, and fruit, vegetables, meat, game and wines from the heartland of Portugal, as well as the resort’s own wines and organic produce from the Herdade dos Grous estate in the Alentejo
