With clear Atlantic waters, idyllic golden coves, picturesque cities and great food and wine, it’s no wonder Portugal has a legion of loyal fans. It may not be far away, but a holiday in Portugal will take you to new realms of relaxation.
The westernmost country in mainland Europe is England’s oldest ally and the holidaymaker’s best friend. Steeped in history and basking in glorious summer sunshine, it has a completely different, altogether gentler vibe to its larger neighbour, Spain.
The Algarve is rightly famed for its beautiful coastline, climate and sporting and golf facilities. And it’s true that from Faro to Sagres via Albufeira and Praia da Luz, you’ll find some of the prettiest beaches, the bluest sea and the most fun anywhere. But Portugal doesn’t end there: the capital, Lisbon, with its cobbled hills and pretty tiled buildings, packs a cultural and visual punch, and the nearby coast offers pretty towns and beaches ranging from the Mediterranean-like to the wild and windswept. Further north, you’ll find insiders’ beach resorts, the UNESCO-protected terraced vineyards of the Douro valley, and the vibrant city of Porto, where you can toast your good fortune over a glass of white port and a platter of fresh grilled sardinhas. In Portugal, you’ll have found a friend.
