Set along the Atlantic coast of the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal is a verdant and varied country, with its wild, rocky northern coast and mountainous interior strikingly juxtaposed by the warm, sun-kissed southern coast and Algarve.
Cobblestone villages, captivating cities, golden beaches, and world-class golf courses, mean that Portugal is many things to many people. This much-loved European holiday destination is a wonderful choice for couples and families alike, with stylish boutique hotels, luxurious retreats, and impressive resorts, all catering to your every need. Walk and cycle along dramatic cliffs, laze peacefully on soft sands, boat, kayak or surf calm blue seas, and explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Tomar, Belém, Alcobaça or Batalha, and medieval towns. Wander the colourful cobbled streets of Lisbon, intersected by old-fashioned trams and dotted with trendy cafes and bars, and take a trip along the wine route in the Rio Douro valley, lined with vineyards on the steep river banks. Eating is a big part of any Portuguese experience, with simple, delicious meals served in local restaurants, and fine dining options dishing up contemporary cuisine. Expect to share freshly baked breads, olives, cheese, fresh fish, and fine wines, as mealtimes often become a social occasion, and dance the night away during Portugal’s packed calendar of festivals.
