Destinations

Portugal is one of the oldest nations in Europe. A country with ever-changing landscape whether you’re appreciating the delightful beaches of the south or stunning mountains of the north, always dotted with monuments of various cultural origins. Explore the variety of our gastronomy is enchanting; each region has its own delicacies and ingredients. When it comes to wine the Douro region is the oldest demarcated wine region in the world with vine terraces sloping steeply down towards the Douro River. With magnificent dotted villages, notorious “quintas” with divine wine tasting and relaxing train rails cutting through the valley unveiling staggering views. Our islands are cherished jewels; the Azores islands have endless shades of green landscapes with unique natural places that can only be found here. Whereas Madeira Island has an exotic appeal with a precious flora and fauna of unique species topped with a warm welcoming weather all year round.

Lisbon - A Fado
Lisbon is the city of seven hills, superbly expressed in the fado songs. Old Lisbon, overlooking the River Tagus, bears the mark of genius of the Marquis of Pombal as well as the unmistakable contours of the former empire. Modern Lisbon, which also lives hand in hand with the river, is an open window on the modern world. Lisbon, in its many different facets, is a permanent meeting point of culture, shows, large-scale organisations and great events. Not far from the city we can find the charm of Estoril and Cascais and the sublime beauty of Sintra, an ancient village that is a UNESCO world heritage site.


Oporto - A Toast
Porto is cultural tradition and architectural heritage. Porto is modernity, fashion, classical and modern music, contemporary art. Porto is a walk by the river mouth, an opulent dinner, S. João’s night, and fireworks. Porto is an afternoon spent in a coffee house, in a garden or strolling on a street. Porto is a rabelo traditional boat anchored on the River Douro. Porto is a vintage full-bodied strong wine from the Upper Douro winemaking region, a world heritage site, with an eternal toast to life itself!


Algarve - A Dream
Algarve is Portugal’s veranda overlooking North Africa and the Mediterranean. It is a region of long beaches with fine, white sand, perpetually linking the blue sea and the bright sun. Algarve is a region containing some of Europe’s most renowned resorts, where Portugal and the world’s beautiful people ensure they have a reservation. Algarve is good weather the whole year through, which is very pleasing for the golfers that come from all over the world. Algarve is a suntanned body, a perfumed pine forest, a fish that leaps from the boat onto the table of the best gourmets.

 

Madeira - A Pearl
Madeira, which is the name of the island and the archipelago that also contains the island of Porto Santo, was first called the Pearl of the Atlantic a long time ago. Madeira is, in actual fact, a rare gem, an exceptional destination, a place mentioned by travellers from all over the world. The hotels of supreme grandeur, the contagious night-life, and the outstanding cuisine are some of the plus points that make visitors want to visit the archipelago and return time and again. Funchal, the archipelago’s capital, is a city emanating a perfume of leisure time and pure fun - dancing and joking at carnival time, or watching the completely unique fireworks display that forms part of Madeira’s New Year’s Eve celebrations every year.

 

Azores - A Paradise
The archipelago of the Azores is formed by nine islands of rare beauty and charm in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Nine expressions of Nature that make you want to take all the time in the world to discover them. Santa Maria, S. Miguel, S. Jorge, Pico, Faial, Graciosa, Terceira, Flores and Corvo. Each island is certain to be a revelation. The Azores are a living example, in the purest form, of what we would imagine paradise to be like, between the sun and the mist, and the green land and the blue of the sea. The people of the Azores have a very special way of welcoming guests, of keeping their history alive, of expressing their culture, of valorising and promoting the potential of their numerous destination attributes.
