With its heavenly beaches, long hours of sunshine, vibrant towns and great nightlife, holidays in the Algarve offer the perfect break away...
Most holidays to Portugal arrive into Faro Airport (FAO) in the southern region known as the Algarve. Visitors here will find a slice of holiday heaven in one of the splendid resorts. Popular resorts for visitors include lively Albufeira, while Carvoeiro, Praia da Rocha and
Vilamoura are a little more peaceful.
Other well-liked resorts on the Algarve include Praia da Luz, Quinta do Lago, Quarteria, Vila do Bispo, Alvor, Armacao de Pera, and Monte Gordo. Purpose-built Vale do Lobo slots nicely into the pine-clad landscape and attracts golfers to its two courses. Portimao, Sagres, the city of Lagos and Moorish Faro also attract tourists looking for a dose of history and culture, which sits so nicely alongside family holiday attractions in Portugal, such as fun-filled waterparks.
Of course Portugal is not all about the sun, sea and sand. Visitors also fly into Lisbon and Oporto to experience Portuguese city life, or to explore the northern half of the Iberian Peninsula, which is home to stunning places such as the Douro Valley, where vineyards cling to hillsides and provide for the country's thriving wine industry.
Whatever your age, whatever your perfect break looks like, and whether you're travelling in a group, with family, or as a couple, Portugal holidays are sure to tick the boxes of your holiday wish list, with fantastic and good value accommodation ranging from hotels, where your every whim is catered for, to do it yourself breaks with self-catering apartments and villas.
