Carvoeiro, Portugal

Luxury Portugal Holidays

Portugal is a seriously photogenic country. Whether you're beach-hopping along the coast of the Algarve or walking high in Madeira's mountains, this is the kind of place that'll have you filling up your camera memory card in no time.

Spanning the country's south coast is the Algarve. The beaches here are particularly pretty - covered with golden-syrup sands and framed by rugged, honey-coloured cliffs. Whitewashed towns are scattered along the coastline, while inland you'll find traditional villages surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and rolling countryside. Further north, the seaside towns of the Lisbon Coast offer up beautiful beaches and easy access to the cobbled streets of the capital.

A thousand-odd kilometres off the mainland is Madeira. This dramatic volcanic island has been nicknamed the Floating Garden, owing to its lush landscape and flower-filled botanical gardens. The capital, Funchal, has the blend of old and new just right, with quaint churches, sleepy squares, and a posh marina where bars serve the latest cocktails alongside sweet Madeira wine.

The island isn't best known for beaches - its dark cliffs tend to plunge straight into the Atlantic - but there are a couple of sandy spots, plus lots of waterside lidos and bathing platforms. Head away from the coast and you'll find soaring mountains and forest-cloaked valleys. Old irrigation channels called levadas criss-cross the interior, and now form fantastic hiking trails.

Portugal Family Holidays

Whether you're travelling with tots, toddlers or teens, Portugal is spot-on for a family getaway. The sandy beaches are ideal for little ones, and the watersports scene tends to be a hit with older children. The Pine Cliffs Resort is perfect for bigger families, offering up spacious townhouses and villas, while the Hilton Vilamoura As Cascatas features a huge kids' club and play area.
