A villa holiday in the southern European country of Portugal offers you an eclectic mix of scenery. With the white unspoilt coastline of the Silver Coast, the high cliffs of the Island of Madeira, the rolling open valley of the Douro Valley, the mountainous north and the bustling towns of the Algarve and Costa Verde, you’re spoilt for choice!
For those looking for a more relaxed getaway on a Portugal villa holiday, the country offers many beautiful, sun-drenched beaches and a gorgeous climate year-round. But there’s plenty to fill your itinerary here too – with an array of historical attractions, including Lisbon’s impressive 18th century triumphal arch Rua Augusta Arch, Coimbra’s infamous library Biblioteca Joanina and the landmark Porto Cathedral in the city of Porto.
Those seeking adventure should take advantage of Portugal’s 1,800 kilometre coast – an enormous surfing beach ideal for cooling off from the warm Portuguese rays. Surfing is popular here throughout the year, particularly on Sagres’ beaches, at the western tip of the Algarve and Ericeria, about 35 kilometres northwest of Lisbon.
So why not head to Portugal’s hilly capital during your sun-kissed escape? With its gorgeous climate, fantastic hikes and lively party scenes, you’ll find your dream break across the capital, staying in a stunning Portugal villa or holiday apartment.
The bustling Chiado square offers fantastic restaurants, bars, old-style cafes, live music and historical sites. Why not take a stroll down the cobbled streets of Alfama, the oldest district of Lisbon, to catch a traditional taste of the city on your Portugal villa holiday? Or visit the impressive Jerónimos Monastery in the parish of Belém? A trip to Miradouro da Senhora do Monte promises a breath-taking panoramic view of the city. From museums to aquariums, Lisbon offers something for everyone and is a must-visit on your Portugal villa holiday!
The Portuguese island of Madeira is another desirable location for an epic Portugal villa holiday in the North Atlantic, with its fantastic hiking trails, gorgeous beaches made from natural volcanic sand and charming capital of Funchal.

The major coastal city of Porto is another brilliant area to explore, as the second largest in the country. The charming World Heritage city is known for its stunning architecture, delicious Portuguese cuisine, spectacular museums, medieval centre and lively nightlife. The city, which faces the open Atlantic Ocean, is also famous for producing its delicious port fine, which is shipped across the globe!
Once in Portugal you can expect to sample delicacies such as Pastel De Nata (a custard tart), Iberian Hams, Caldo Verde and Bacalhau (salted cod) on your holiday villa break. The Portuguese love their food, so make sure you head to one of the hundreds of markets and restaurants to sample the local delights once you have settled in to your Portuguese villa holiday.
The archipelago of the Azores, in the mid-Atlantic, offer an unforgettable break away from the mainland. The archipelago is a fantastic destination for dolphin and whale-watching in particular! With boat rides and the chance to swim near the creatures, dolphin watching on your island break is sure to make it a holiday to remember. The group is made up of nine volcanic islands; Sao Miguel, Santa Maria, Terceira, Sao Jorge, Pico, Graciosa, Flores, Coro and Faial, all boasting a great diversity of landscaps and attractions to explore on your Portugal villa holiday.
Porto Santo Island is another fantastic area to explore. In the North Atlantic Ocean, north-east of Madeira, the small, sleepy island is known for its quiet beaches, beautiful landscapes and white-washed houses. Away from the bustling tourist crowds, the island’s quiet capital offers the perfect spot for total bliss; with cobbled streets, a quaint square and pretty waterfront.
Of course, many are drawn to the Algarve, one of Portugal’s most popular regions with an epic 100-mile long Atlantic coastline offering fantastic sun-bathing, scuba-diving and power-boating spots.
