Part of the resort’s Collection, the Red Chalet is a Belle Époque-style villa launching this August in Armação de Pêra
– July 19, 2022
Says the company, a leading player in the Algarve’s luxury rental market, the debut of the Red Chalet is “in keeping with the current trend for increased exclusivity and privacy”.
The four-bedroom Red Chalet was built during the turn of the 20th century and inspired by the opulent luxury of the Belle Époque era. Originally known as ‘Chalet dos Caldas e Vasconcelos’, the property remained as a family summer home for almost 80 years, and this sense of familial warmth has been recreated in the Red Chalet.
Vila Vita Collection comprises a number of luxurious villas dotted in prime locations in the Algarve, and the Red Chalet is no exception. Owned and managed by Vila Vita Parc, the villas offer a seamless hotel experience in a private villa setting, with access to a myriad of services including the Vila Vita yacht.
Now listed as a historical building, the property perches directly on the Armação de Pêra seawall, offering guests dramatic ocean views (alongside the quaint church square) and easy access to the beach.
The interior is equally impressive with the Red Chalet’s sumptuous interiors, as the renovation retained as many of the original elements as possible: “the unique wooden flooring, antique chandeliers, and a spectacular staircase were all lovingly recreated. The Moroccan influences of the architecture, with geometric designs on the shutters and ceilings, are also elegant reminders of the region’s rich cultural history”.
The two-bedroom Red Chalet (sleeping up to four guests) also benefits from a small annex, the White House, in front of the property that offers a duplex suite with living room and terrace downstairs, and an ensuite bedroom upstairs, as well as a further self-contained studio with bedroom, shower room and balcony.
White-washed wooden floors and details in splashes of colour are recreated throughout the White House to create a calm, contemporary oasis that is perfect for younger members of the family eager for their own space, or families that travel with an au pair.
Guests at the Red Chalet looking for the ultimate luxury break are able to request a private chef, waiting staff, and a personal assistant, as well as take advantage of the exceptional facilities at sister property Vila Vita Parc. These facilities include a Sisley Spa with 14 treatment rooms and a fitness studio offering panoramic floor-to-ceiling views over the resort’s lush gardens, 11 restaurants (ranging from casual, beachside cuisine to two-Michelin-starred fine dining), a wine cellar that boasts Portugal’s largest private wine collection, seven swimming pools, a private yacht, helipad, kids’ clubs and programmes for a variety of ages, and a beach club offering a range of water sports.
Rates at the Red Chalet start from €2,500 per night for a minimum stay of four nights.
