• Luxury Portugal Holidays
  • Overview

    Sometimes referred to as ‘Europe’s west coast’, Portugal is a country of picturesque vineyard-filled rolling hills, dramatic cliffs and year-round sunshine. Add to that stunning hotels, and it’s no wonder Portugal is such a popular luxury holiday destination. Whether you want to relax on a beach, go trekking through the hills, discover the remnants of the country’s far-reaching history, or discover new flavours on a vineyard tasting tour, pretty much all tastes and interests can be catered for in Portugal.

    Speaking of tastes, Portuguese cuisine is another great reason to visit. With 1,700 kilometres of coastline, seafood features highly on most menus. From the Algarve specialty of cataplanas – a flavourful local dish of seafood named after the special shallow-sided Portuguese pot it’s cooked in – to Porto’s delicacy of tripe stew, dishes tend to be fresh and light, but packed with flavour. Being neighbours with Spain, these meals are usually served up as small plates, similar to tapas, so you can sample as many different dishes as possible.

    Portugal has a temperate climate, which varies slightly throughout the country. The north tends to be cooler, getting progressively warmer and drier as you go south. Portugal is a great destination any time of year. From June to August, the sun is reliable throughout the country, and even during the winter months temperatures in the Algarve average highs of 17°C, making it a great option if you prefer to avoid the cold.
