Portugal benefits from the same warm climate and beautiful beaches as its neighbour Spain. Like Spain, it has earned a place among Europe's most popular tourist destinations. However, it often does not draw the excessive crowds that Spain does, making it a favourite for those who want to enjoy a slightly quieter holiday on a sunsoaked Mediterranean beach.
Portugal is most famous for Port, the fine wine created there, and excellent ports can be easily purchased throughout the country. It is no surprise that visitors who embark on luxury Portugal holidays often come away with some excellent bottles of Port as souvenirs. Portugal has been continually famed for its wine for thousands of years, since it first earned renown among the Romans with their vast empire.
One of the most popular destinations in Portugal is the Algarve. This region is particularly well-known for its wonderful beaches and spectacular rocky cliffs. If you would like to experience our luxury holidays to Portugal and the Algarve in particular, we can organise a stay at the Sheraton Algarve Hotel. The Sheraton Algarve has been designed to incorporate elements in tribute to the area's maritime heritage, and has also been influenced by the Arab heritage of Portugal. It is situated in a stunning clifftop location, overlooking beautiful beaches. The Sheraton Algarve also offers guests an extensive range of facilities. These include a golf course and fine dining with menus that incorporate both local and international cuisine.
Of course, there is much more to luxury Portugal holidays then just beaches. It is also an unmissable destination for history lovers. The country has a number of heritage sites stretching back to Roman times. The country also has a proud marine tradition stretching back hundreds of years.
