A perfect little pocket of European bliss.
It’s not just the birds that are heading south – flocks of travellers have discovered that Spain’s little neighbour packs a mighty punch. A country of historically mixed fortunes, Portugal is having a moment in the spotlight which will almost certainly linger. From the Algarve’s dramatic coastline to the terraces of the Douro Valley wine region, from Lisbon’s steep cobbled streets to the Azores’ volcanic peaks, Portugal is packed with history, beauty and some of the most welcoming people you’ll ever encounter. And the food? Just you wait.
