VILA VITA Parc’s traditional Bavarian Biergarten reopensVILA VITA Parc’s traditional Bavarian Biergarten reopened on the 4th July showcasing cosy-chic décor, an authentic new menu and a truly convivial atmosphere.

The VILA VITA Biergarten, the Algarve’s most authentic German beer garden, located in pretty Porches, reopened on the 4th of July, following a brief period of refurbishment.
With an interior entirely lined with 120-year-old vintage wood, stepping into the Biergarten feels like you’re being transported to a rustic chalet in the Alps. The new decoration, which is even more cosy and traditional, contributes to the unique location’s convivial atmosphere, typical of the best German beer gardens. New features include the new bar at the entrance, covered in characterful wooden tiles used in regional Bavarian design, as well as a raised floor area on the upper floor, ideal for live band performances.
