Portugal boasts a heady, compelling mix of gorgeous golden beaches and stunning natural scenery which ensures it is a favourite with holiday makers from all over the continent and beyond. Its balmy year round weather is simply the icing on the cake.

The Algarve

Along the pretty south coast is found the famous Algarve region, which is characterised by its endless secluded bays and sandy beaches. No matter what you look for in a holiday - whether that is an authentic low key experience or an action packed, town based break - you will find everything you crave and more in this beautiful part of Portugal, which, incidentally is also home to some of the best golf courses in the world. The Algarve is a consistently successful at the renowned World Travel Awards - (the travel industry’s ‘Oscars’). Indeed, over the last few years it has been applauded for several of its selling points including the huge amount of activities on offer, the cleanliness and beauty of its beaches, its child-friendly attractions and world class sporting facilities.

Madeira

The Portuguese owned island of Madeira sits picturesquely in the Atlantic Ocean, around a thousand kilometres off the mainland. Colloquially referred to as ‘The Floating Garden’ by locals because of its wonderful botanical gardens that are dense with bright flowers, this is a truly stunning pace to spend your holiday. Funchal (the capital), is a real melting pot of the new and the old, with traditional tavernas and markets sitting happily alongside cool bars and high end boutiques. Madeira truly is a modern day Garden of Eden, and the colours that characterise the island are a wonder of Technicolor - with breath-taking displays of the brightest bougainvillea, the hugest poinsettias and the most fragrant and beautiful lilac trees all jostling for space in this wonderful landscape.

Porto Santo

Around forty kilometres north of Madeira is to be found the diminutive island of Porto Santo. Small but perfectly formed (measuring just six kilometres wide and eleven kilometres long) this is an intimate setting for a relaxing, romantic getaway. If you crave peace and relative solitude, this is the ideal destination, as it has only recently opened its doors to tourists and retains an unspoilt air. Quintessentially Portuguese - with whitewashed cottages and winding cobbled streets - it’s a bit like stepping back in time. The island also has a vast (ten kilometre long) sandy beach, so is just perfect for families with young children.
