Portugal & its islands

Portugal & its Islands
  • timeless scenery
  • welcoming hotels of character
  • walking, cycling, short breaks, journeys and family holidays

 

Looking towards the Atlantic, Portugal has traditionally been a nation of great explorers, but is a country that in turn deserves to be explored itself. In the north, the verdant beauty of the Minho and the grandeur of the port-wine-producing Douro Valley are striking, as are the brightly coloured wooden boats and candy-striped houses of the Aveiro region. West of Lisbon, it is the sumptuousness of the palaces and monasteries that impresses, while in our other chosen regions, the outstanding feature is the tranquillity that reigns over Alentejo's borderlands and near-deserted beaches, as well as the little-known sierra and rugged clifftops of western Algarve.

Portugal’s Atlantic islands are different again. The wealth of Madeira’s flora is extraordinary, while the levadas which water these luxuriant landscapes provide a unique network of paths – particularly in the south – that make route-finding unusually easy. Similarly, the Azores are remarkably green and lush, with scenery as dramatic as the volcanic activity which shaped it.

To explore this timeless scenery, choose a walking, cycling or touring holiday. We also offer short breaks and family holidays.
