This Holiday in a nutshell
  • two-centre break, with optional day of walking in the hills
  • notes provided for self-guided walking tours of Lisbon and Sintra
  • take your time to visit the unique cultural and historical sights
  • hotels of character

Warmed by the Gulf Stream and caressed by spring sea breezes, Lisbon has one of the mildest climates in Western Europe and sits majestically at the mouth of the great River Tagus. Portugal’s lively capital is home to remarkable monumental architecture from the Golden Age and its rich cultural heritage demands leisurely investigation and exploration, using our detailed notes to discover both the famous and lesser-known quarters of the cities, sharing our insights and suggestions for a relaxed and enjoyable stay.
Bright yellow trams wind their way through tree-lined streets where Lisboetas stroll through the old quarters, exchanging gossip in the old Alfama district over fresh bread and wine at tiny patio restaurants.
North-west of the capital, rolling wooded hills and vineyards characterise the ‘Garden of Lisbon’, where royalty, the aristocracy and the very wealthy attempted to outdo each other in the splendour of their palaces and estates. At its heart is hill-top Sintra, famed for its grandeur and amazing architectural heritage. Staying in two exceptional hotels, this holiday is as much about delving into the region’s rich past, culture and cuisine, as it is about exploring its gentle landscapes.
