THE EXPERIENCE

The Vila’s staff, who have been with the family for over 20 years, love to create intimate experiences for guests across the estate, be it a stroll through rows of imperial palm trees to the organic vegetable garden, or a intimate candle-lit dinner set in the garden over-looking Christ.

Their approach to looking after guests is focused on the personalized touch, from arranging private drivers and booking restaurants, to pre-ordering their favorite bottle of wine.
