Weekends in Portugal, where sun and culture combine
The beautiful Algarve
Portugal’s coastline is world renowned for its beauty, and thanks to its Atlantic facing position, offers some of the most majestic landscapes in Europe. To the south of Portugal is the famed Algarve region, home to many luxury holiday resorts, the historic town of Faro and some of the warmest weather in Europe. Beaches are what the Algarve does best, and whether you try surfing at Praia do Amado or just enjoy the picture perfect views at Praia da Marinha Beach, you'll understand why visitors return to this region year on year. We’ve selected the best luxury villas and resort hotels in the Algarve so you can enjoy a weekend of peace, tranquillity and high quality service.
Fine wine, fine dining in Portugal
As one of the world’s most famous wine countries, along with access to delicious and abundant seafood, the Portuguese know how to serve up a good meal. If you’re only in Portugal for one weekend then make sure you try the popular salted cod, Lisbon red mullet or caldo verde soup. Wash it all down with a glass of rich port or a sweet muscatel wine.
Porto, Northern Capital of Culture
To the north of Portugal lies the medieval city of Porto, an ideal location for a luxury city break in Portugal. As the world's exclusive supplier of Port, visitors can take a tour of an underground wine cave in the city and sample this famously rich wine. Porto culture stands apart from the rest of Portugal and visitors will enjoy a refined weekend in Porto at a top quality hotel.
