Things to do in Portugal

  • Beaches in Portugal - A top destination in Portugal, the Algarve is known for its golden sandy beaches; we have several Algarve Villas, should you wish to be based here. Further north the waves are more dramatic and suited for surfers, but you’ll also find pristine sheltered bays, perfect for swimming. 275 of Portugal’s beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status; highlights include Praia da Rocha in the Algarve, and Carcavelos, near Lisbon.
  • Golf Courses in Portugal - Many head to Portugal to enjoy the country’s fabulous golf courses. A large proportion of its courses are considered among Europe’s very best; the most prestigious include Monte Rei in the Algarve and Furnas, which is on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores.
  • Countryside in Portugal - One of the best things about Portugal’s picturesque inland regions is that they remain off the beaten track. The north is particularly beautiful, home to the Alto Douro wine region, verdant hills and mountains and Peneda-Gerês, Portugal’s only national park, which boasts countless waterfalls and is a fantastic location for hikes and camping.
  • Culture in Portugal - There are 14 different UNESCO World Heritage Sites to visit in Portugal. Especially impressive are the preserved historic city centres like Sintra near Lisbon, which was a residence for royalty for centuries and Guimaraes in the North, which has a magnificent castle and is a site significant to the birth of this nation.
  • Lisbon - Lisbon is a modern European city with a character all of its own, offering great shopping and affordable dining. Castelo de Sao Jorge is one of the essential sights; it is perched above the city and offering fantastic views. The Belém area is also well worth experiencing; it boasts the spectacular Jerónimos Monastery.

Weather in Portugal

Portugal has a number of different microclimates, but overall the country’s weather can be defined as Mediterranean. There’s plenty of sunshine, in a corner of Europe that gets more days of sun on average than anywhere else. The further north you go the more rainfall you can expect. Temperatures tend not to fluctuate too much from north to south, apart from water temperatures, which are lower in the north. Winters in all but upland regions are mild, with highs in the mid-teens by day. Summers are warm and dry with temperatures in the mid-20s from around May to October.

Travel to Portugal

The Portugal villas that we offer can be reached via three international airports; Lisbon Portela (LIS), Faro (FAO) in the south and Porto (OPO) in the north. Lisbon is the country’s main international gateway, with connections across Europe, to Brazil and North America. The road system in Portugal is well developed, with 44 motorways and easy connections from the airports to main tourism regions. There are metro systems in the cities of Lisbon and Porto, and all major towns have their own public bus networks.

The elegant and extremely stylish apartment is in a great part of town , close enough to the Barrio Alto but quiet and peaceful. It was comfortable and well appointed .We loved the marble shower with the view . Pedro has a great eye and we can't recommend his lovely eclectic apartment enough .

The villa is light and airy and very comfortable. The view from the terrace is amazing with views over the sea pretty much from east to west and the surrounding hills, and yet the terrace remains quite private. The terrace is south facing so the pool gets the sun all day. With a hire car this was an excellent peaceful base for exploring the island. Towels were supplied and the bed linen changed after a week and the villa tidied through while we were out. I would highly recommend this villa for anyone wanting to combine some sightseeing with plenty of relaxing.

The cottage itself is beautifully appointed, with spacious living accommodation inside as well as plenty of outside space with the balcony and the roof terrace. We were warmly welcomed by Jenny and Graham, given a tour of the cottage and lots of helpful information about the local village, Calheta and beyond: such as supermarkets, parking tips and places to visit on the island. We felt reassured that we could come to Jenny and Graham with anything and it was lovely to say hello in the morning and stop for a friendly chat. It was the village chapel feast day during our stay and we were able to observe the village procession and the festivities with our hosts. The kitchen was stocked with basics and we very much enjoyed the meal service provided by the hosts; wonderful home cooked food and delicious wine. We had an amazing experience on the boat cruise with Graham on the Gavito, watching dolphins and whales and seeing the stunning coastline of Madeira from the water. Additional thanks to Graham for trying to teach my husband to fish! The boat trip was a truly exceptional experience and we would urge guests to book it! We hired a car during our week long stay to explore the island, taking a hire company recommendation from our hosts. This was essential for us because we like to have the freedom to come and go. We balanced our stay with trips around the island and days at home. For non drivers, there were always taxis available. Whether you are looking for a base from which to explore Madeira fully or if you are looking for a place to relax, soak up the sun and scenery then Palheiro Cottage is the perfect choice for either. This was our first visit to the island and will definitely be coming back to stay at Palheiro Cottage. Our thanks and best wishes to Jenny and Graham for being such fantastic hosts.
