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.

Lovely villa

5 of 5
This was our first trip to Maderia, but it won't be our last! A beautiful, peaceful island. We loved the villa. Very high spec with everything you could need. We enjoyed the pool, which is a great size and warmer than most. We never tired of the view, which you can see from every room. The villa doesn't have aircon in the bedrooms, which we assumed it would, but we managed and the lack of aircon wouldn't put us off from returning.

Excellent 3 bed townhouse. Rooms well furnished and equipped, clean throughout, central location

5 of 5
Well equipped centrally located 3 bed townhouse very pleased with the property for our holiday. Brilliant air con throughout, which is needed when Algarve temperature rises. Great location for access to minimarkets, restaurants and the river ferry to Ihle de Tavira sandy beach. Peaceful at night and during the day. Owner in contact with us during our stay and met by caretaker on arrival. Had breakfast outside every day on patio set, had crabs and prawns for tea on several occasions great holiday property for a relaxed Portugese holiday. Well recommended and big thanks to Ann for renting it to us.
