Portugal is full of sunshine, sea and sand, with a lot more in between, from quaint villages and ancient churches to rolling hills and arid plains. Portugal is a place to explore at a leisurely pace, drinking in all of the sights and sounds of Portugal while taking time to appreciate the countryside and people.
Visitors and sun seekers have been flocking to Portugal for more than fifty years, since the upsurge in foreign holidays. Not only is Portugal beautiful, but the great weather makes it ideal to visit from early spring to late autumn.
Lying in the extreme southwest of Europe, Portugal is a country that exudes old-fashioned charm, yet has embraced a modern urban lifestyle with vibrant cities such as Lisbon and Oporto. The hotels in Portugal reflect this dichotomy with rambling farmhouses being just as welcoming as the smart city hotels in Portugal.
