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.

Well, we weren't disappointed. Peter has been very helpful right from the start before we even arrived in Madeira. We wanted to use the transport links and have a break from the car, Peter gave us all the info we needed. We arrived after a fairly lengthy delay and realised we had quite a long wait for the aerobus so rang Peter for his advice. He arranged for a taxi to come and get us at a reasonable price. The apartment didn't disappoint either, it is spacious, well equipped and very well situated. We used the public transport which was excellent. There is a supermarket in Funchal which is less than a 10 minute walk. The walk back up to the apartment is up a short, steep hill which may be difficult for elderly or pushing a buggy however, if you hire a car there is a large garage in the basement of the apartment which would overcome that problem. As has been mentioned before, the photos don't do the pool justice, it's much bigger than it looks and lovely to cool down at the end of the day, there's also a smaller toddler pool next to it. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Madeira and Peter's apartment.

Everything is beautifully appointed. The kitchen is well fitted and there is plenty of fridge/freezer space. The pool was brilliant fun for our children and the view over the valley to the sea is amazing. There are local shops in walking distance (if you don't mind some steep hills), but I would recommend having a hire car if you stay here. It's a short drive to the beach and restaurants in Calheta, but too far to walk. Will definitely stay here next time we go to Madeira.
