Portugal

Known for its spectacular Algarve beaches, Portugal is a country rich in tradition from its oceanic influences. The relaxing beaches provide a luxurious feel throughout the day, whilst the lively scenic towns provide a wonderful contrast of stunning architecture, unique cuisine and dreamy fado music.

Portugal is Europe’s up and coming destination. It’s become hugely popular in recent years and that process continues to accelerate. Portugal is a fairly small country so you can see different parts of it in one trip. You can combine Lisbon and Porto for a more urban experience. The Algarve is ideal if you’d like more of a beach vacation. There are plenty of charming places to visit for day trips, such as Sintra. Be sure to try the famous custard tarts and see what remains of Portugal’s rustic charms. It’s heightened popularity means it’s rapidly gentrifying.
