Merely 50 meters along the avenue, within the original historic customs house (VRSA’s oldest building), you’ll find our latest establishment, the Grand Café. It’s a delightful spot where you can savour delicious snacks, delicate treats, and our signature homemade pastries.
With its empty beaches, quaint, century-old towns and lip-smacking fresh seafood, Portugal’s Eastern Algarve is an undiscovered gem. One of the country’s best-kept secrets, this special destination is a tribute to tradition, a song of saudade, an emotional state of mind that describes the Portuguese soul and identity by preserving ancient history, a unique cultural heritage, traditional crafts and a unique ecosystem.
Being a pet friendly hotel, we have a very special Junior Butler: GRAND. The Portuguese Water Dog is not only the ambassador of our pet-friendly Hotel. She is also our good soul, working in the customer service, where her affectionate, social nature makes her the perfect fit for this role.
We like to think of our Grand House as a Grand Dame. She is almost 100 years old, itself a book with thousands of pages of stories. No wonder, then, that we thought it was time to put the Grand Dame's life on paper. We are very happy to present you the first issue of our Grand Magazine.
What would the Algarve be without sun-kissed hours at the beach? At two nearby beach sections of Vila Real de Santo António, you can bask in the sun by renting two sun chairs, a parasol, and a cooling box with drinks and delicious snacks. Applicable only in summer.
