The translation of Vila Joya means 'House of Joy' or 'Jewelry Box', and this jewel -- once the summer house of a traveling family -- has now been transformed into an exclusive escape. Perched on the picturesque Portuguese Atlantic coast and set in idyllic gardens, this luxury seaside retreat offers a relaxing home-away-from-home atmosphere alongside uncompromising luxury.

Property Details

The ornate ceiling of the entrance hall leads to an exclusive collection of just 12 rooms and eight suites, all with views of the sparkling ocean. Moorish arches are paired with clean lines and neutral tones to bring in ample sunlight. Authentic Portuguese touches in the rooms include painted azulejos turquoise tiles, Portuguese cork flooring, and lovely antiques. Relax in the generous bathtub, a standard in each room, or look out into the private garden. The Master Royal Suite Alegria features spacious enhancements including a private pool. On the terrace of Suite Seven, comfortable sun loungers enhance your time outdoors.

Wine aficionados will love the Wine Cellar, home to 12,000 bottles. Dine on a six course meal in the two-Michelin-starred restaurant that focuses on local produce. Sample guinea fowl stuffed with black truffles and artichokes, smoked eel, and salted cod on the outdoor terrace as the stars sparkle and the moonlight shimmers on the ocean below.

There is an air of tranquility and comfort at Vila Joya no matter where you turn. Take a walk to the pool through the garden of swaying palm trees, agaves, cypresses, and bright bursts of bougainvillea. Here you are invited to snooze to the sound of the surf nearby, linger in the scent of jasmine, wander through the soft golden sand, and admire the vast deep blue ocean expanse.

For even more pampering, unwind in the spa with a massage, facial, or manicure. De-stress with a private yoga session, or hit the links at one of the top golf courses in the area. Watch the stunning sunsets as you sip on a cocktail in the bar and get lost in this exclusive oasis that celebrates land and sea on the Algarve coast.
