Portugal

​A centre of exploration and the birthplace of a great world empire.

Portugal is a fascinating destination that blends the charm of ancient town and city centres with a selection of golden sandy beaches in the Algarve, swept clean each day by the Atlantic tides.

Take your luxury holiday in Portugal south, to the country's best-known holiday region, the Algarve, famous for its year-round championship golf courses, lively social scenes and beaches that range from broad swathes of golden sand to small and sheltered coves. The relatively recent tourist development has done little to change the area's intrinsic character. You will still find little inland villages where time seems to have stood still - unspoilt fishing villages are modestly fortified against Moorish invasion and local restaurateurs queue at the quay to select the menu for the evening ahead, for the perfect dish on any Portugal holiday.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL

Spring and autumn are the most pleasant times to visit. July and August can be very hot, especially in the sheltered bays of the Algarve in the south, though this region is especially pleasant and mild during the winter months. Madeira and the Azores benefit from the warming influence of the Gulf Stream, so can be visited year round.
