A singular travel experience both in lodging and food. Professional but friendly staff add to the experience. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms have great views, and the degustation menu is worth the splurge. What a wonderful place to rest and re-charge in the midst of a busy

We are interested in staying two nights in September. We are looking forward to dining in the Michelin star restaurant one of the nights, but I don't think I could eat a 6 course meal both nights. What are my alternatives for a light meal the other night?
Dear Sir or Madam, Thank you for your question. We are able to offer a lighter room service menu served on your terrace or balcony or alternatively there are many wonderful restaurants close by which we will be happy to arrange a reservation for. There is the possibility we will also have another option on our property but that is yet to be confirmed. We very much hope to hear from you soon and should you require any further help or information please contact us at info @ vilajoya . com. Sunny regards The Vila Joya Team

We are looking for an adult only experience. Is this for us in August 2017.
Dear Bertie Thank you for your interest in coming to visit Vila Joya. Regarding your query, we are a small boutique hotel that whilst happily accepts children, has limited child facilities. As a consequence, we do not tend to attract many families. That being said, during the summer holidays there is very often one or two families staying with us, however, in our experience they have always been extremely well behaved. We hope this answers your question and hope that perhaps you, one day, join us here at Vila Joya. Kindest regards The Vila Joya Team
