    Omg this place looks awesome. I became relaxed just by looking at the pictures. What an awesome experience. It’s on my bucket list to travel to another country and take a cooking class….as soon as I finish culinary school.

    I would love to see a Cataplana recipe from you. I’ve never really tried Portuguese food but I’m sure it would taste amazing, just like your pictures! You’re a great photographer and I can imagine your photos being in a book on my coffee table. Loving the blog posts and recipes. Hope to see you on the tv soon 🙂

    Such a beautiful looking country the views just take your breath away and the sea and beaches look so tranquil the ingredients in the dishes are so colourful and fresh and alive you just salivate as soon as you set eyes on them and there looks to be so much to do and learn with the different crafts and after eating world class food you can relax in the opulent rooms truly a heavenly place.

    Beautiful pictures and story of my country! Portugal, I’m from Algarve, Vilamoura you should visit one day to know more about the beaches and the Portuguese culture. I have your book at home “Fast, Fresh and Easy Food” I tried some recipes and was definitely easy to cook, I decide to cook better and I think if I follow your recipes I will be as good as you one day. Thank you

    Hi, really loved the post, I myself have just discovered Portugal and went to Lisbon, I will definitely be going back. You’re pictures and your blogs are a joy to read, I can definitely hear your voice as I read them. It looks an interesting place and the photos are great. I also love gardens, we happened to find a tropical garden hidden away in Lisbon, we walked past a couple of times and not even realised it was there. Florrie-May.

    Hi Lorraine, I’m your fan and when I realised you were in the Algarve and Vila Vita, I almost couldn’t believe it. I live in Portimao and I’m a travel agent. I know Vila Vita and I can confirm that everything you said is true. It is one of the best luxury resorts here. When you feel like coming again, let me know and I will give you more suggestions. Typical villages, great restaurants to eat regional food, tours that are worth a visit. Love to see you cook, so nice, simple and fast. Take Care! Carla Martins Guerreiro (I also put likes in your Posts). P. S. Would love to win your book… I don’t cook a lot but I want to, only don’t know how to start. Hope you can help 🙂

    Wow! What a fantastic place. Sounds like you really packed in loads of activities too; which is my favourite type of holiday break. A good combo of exercise, exploration, new food & drink sensations and experiences, along with a bit of relaxation time is right up my street.
    Your photos really capture the essence of the place. Made me want to nip down to that beach restaurant and for a seafood extravaganza and definitely try some of that wine!
    Visited that part of Portugal a few years ago with a bunch of friends and found the locals to be incredibly friendly and hospitable, so not surprised that you enjoyed your trip so much.
    So where next then Lorraine? Planning your next trip already?
    Great to read your blog as usual (miss your YouTube vlogs..)

    Hi Lorraine
    Firstly thanks for sharing your 3-day trip to Vila Vita Portugal. What a stunning place. So much to do, see and eat! I really enjoyed reading your post as it had a nice balance of text and photos. A couple of tiny things but nothing major I spotted.
    Under the wine cellar section you mentioned the following:
    If you are all about the wine then their 1100o strong selectiom should see you right. Should that be 11,000 or 1,100?

    The 2 Michelin Star restaurant
    You wrote- there were some many ‘oooo’s and ‘ahhhhh’s. Should that be ‘oooo’s’ and ‘ahhhhh’s’.

    Sorry, I hope I don’t sound super pedantic!
    Thanks
    Lorraine

    Absolutely checking out the hotel gym is a must! Helps kill some of that time inbetween the sun going down and dinner being served! If there isn’t a half decent gym and I’m fairly set on the hotel, I at least make sure there is an adventure local so I can run daily or workout on hills, beach etc. Enjoy!

    Beautiful Lorraine, this is why I simply love reading your posts. You have a natural way and skill of capturing the moment. The deep sea blue glasses on the tables are stunning and this makes me want to go there now and eat and drink at the restaurant. I dream of visiting Portugal 🇵🇹 with my little family but this one I would save for a special holiday with my hubby. For our grown up holiday without the kids one day. But for now, I will dream and hear the sound of the waves gently crashing, the divine smell of the food being served, sip on wine I don’t know anything about and indulgence myself through your pictures.
    Thank you for sharing your experience in Portugal.

    Wow, reading this I have completely seen the Algave in a different light. I never thought of it as being a foodie place, but it has definitely inspired me to look beyond a tourist attraction capitals.
