Holidays In Portugal

Though it's one of Europe's smaller countries, Portugal packs in an astonishingly diverse range of things to do and see. Whether you're looking for fine beaches, wild national parks, cities rich in culture or a top-class golfing break, you’ll find your expectations exceeded. The country has a proud architectural heritage, and many landmark buildings have been opened up as guest accommodation. In particular, there’s the chain of Pousadas – hotels in noteworthy buildings that aim to preserve a local flavour.

Being only around a 3 hour flight from the UK, Portugal is ideal for those looking for a quick break in the sun or travelling with little ones. Packed with stunning scenery, from the incredible architecture of Lisbon to the quaint fishing villages you’ll find dotted along the coast, couples, families, groups and solos alike will love Portugal holidays.

If entertainment and nightlife is your thing head to the famous resorts of Lagos or Praia da Rocha, before spending your days relaxing on the soft golden sandy beaches. Families will love Albufeira, filled with activities, beaches and lots of activities for the kids, while couples often gravitate towards upmarket Vilamoura with its incredible marina full of luxury yachts as well as a range of world-class bars and restaurants.
