With its vast, open countryside and dazzling whitewashed villages, the Alentejo is considered one of the most picturesque regions of Portugal.

The Algarve has arguably the best year-round climate in mainland Europe, with daytime temperatures ranging from 15ºC in winter to more than 30ºC in high summer, and around 300 days of sunshine per year.

Enjoy its quirky Moorish architectural and culinary influences, stunning sunsets and remote island beaches.
