Portugal is one of the smallest countries in Europe, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in stunning good looks and charm. From the rolling hills of the Costa Verde (Green Coast) in the North to the pristine beaches of the Algarve, a holiday in Portugal will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and full of energy.
If you want to explore somewhere that’s off the beaten track and a little less touristy than some of the more popular resorts in Portugal, then take a look at Portugal villas for rent in the north of the country. They’ll be a little cheaper but no less comfortable and will make the perfect base for a fun filled activity holiday. Portugal is renowned for its championship golf courses, but if you’re looking for an activity to really get the blood pumping you’ll find companies offering everything from horse riding to paragliding to windsurfing.
For a more relaxing holiday look at Portugal villas on the beautiful island of Madeira. And if you find one you like, book it! Luxury villas on this exquisite island don’t stay on the market for very long. Madeira is world famous for its flora and fauna and is the ideal spot for anyone who has an interest in horticulture. However you don’t have to be green fingered to appreciate the beauty of the place and there is lots to do that doesn’t involve looking at flowers! Portugal villas on the island also make a great base for a water sports holiday as water skiing and windsurfing lessons are also widely available.
Of course no review of Portugal would be complete without mentioning the ever popular Algarve. Again Portugal villas here tend to get booked up very early on in the year, so do start hunting early if you fancy holidaying in this part of the country. If it’s golden sands, a fabulous Mediterranean climate and lively nightlife you’re looking for, you’ll find it all in one of the many resorts on the Algarve.
