All in the Algarve
Where in the world can you enjoy 300 days of sunshine a year? The Algarve! This sun-soaked region is your one stop shop for beach bliss, golf glory and swoon-worthy market towns. Swing by Vilamoura to practice your hole-in-one or admire pastel-coloured architecture in idyllic Almancil – the Algarve’s got it all.
City breakers, make a beeline for the whitewashed wonder of Faro. Enter the enchanting Old Town through the Arco da Vila to discover cobbled alleys and architectural delights. There are plenty of museums to choose from round here, too. Want to learn about local history? Check out the Regional Museum of the Algarve.
Make for Maderia
The magical island of Madeira is a flourishing green oasis. Outdoorsy types, you’ve hit the jackpot here thanks to lush walks along levadas (small aqueducts) and ancient forest. Things get cosmopolitan over in Funchal - Madeira’s capital. As well as being home to six public gardens, this beautiful city is studded with historic gems, chic cocktail bars and rustic restaurants.
