The Christmas spirit has swept through Vidamar Resort Hotel Algarve and into every corner and every member of our team!
Everything is ready for us to offer you a charming, comfortable, friendly and tasty Christmas.
“For Christmas we have prepared a family-style concept,” explains the executive chef of Vidamar Resorts & Hotels, Miguel Teixeira. “The idea is to gather our guests in an ambience that combines comfort and tradition so that people can really feel at home.”
Take a voyage through Portuguese cuisine with our Christmas menus. Our chefs have reinterpreted traditional savoury and sweet recipes, and will be preparing them for you.
“The dishes will be based on traditional Christmas ones, but always with a natural touch and details, and updated for the present day,” says Chef Teixeira. “Of course there will also be our traditional dishes and delicacies, such as Bolo Rei (Portuguese Christmas cake), rabanadas (sugared French toast), sonhos (fried doughnuts), bacalhau (salt cod) and turkey.”
Bacalhau com chalotas (codfish with shallots), cabrito à padeiro com grelos (roast goat and potatoes with greens), bacalhau à pescador (codfish with shellfish) and peru com castanhas (turkey with chestnuts) are among the mains for Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day lunch that await you at the Vidamar Resort Hotel Algarve.
Gastronomy is a big feature of a traditional Portuguese Christmas, but at the Vidamar Algarve Christmas is much more!
The mild Algarve winter means that walks along the beach and the various activities taking place at the Vidamar will guarantee you an unforgettable Christmas experience.
The Algarve’s main towns are all decked out for the festive season and in each one you can find a genuine Algarve flavour and examples of traditional ways of celebrating Christmas, whether it is in the many local sweets or the traditional presépios (Christmas cribs) on display.
You are hereby invited to spend the holidays with us and find out why Christmas at the Vidamar has a charm all its own!
