• Lisbon


    It’s Portugal’s capital and arguably one of Europe’s most vibrant cities. As a holiday destination, Lisbon has it all from rich cultural history in the old districts of Alfama to a buzzing evening atmosphere in the lively Bairro Alto. Lisbon’s close proximity to the coast makes a city escape easy and a temperate climate means it’s a destination possible to discover all year round. From cinematic miradouros overlooking the Tagus river to cobbled backstreets that open out to ancient ruins like the Carmo Convent, it’s clear this dynamic city has something on offer for all.

  • Sintra


    Set in the pine-covered landscape is the mystic mountain town of Sintra which is overflowing with opulent palaces, ancient ruins and romantic gardens perfectly radiating its Renaissance and Baroque past. So many sights in a small area, it’s easy to feel overcrowded especially during the summer months. We avoid this by arriving at sunrise, just as Fabrica das Verdadeiras Queijadas da Sapa opens for a fresh pastry, then head to Palacio Monserrate which is often neglected by its neighboring monuments but offers so much more with a beautiful blend of Arabic, Gothic and Indian architecture. 

  • Cascais


    30 minutes along the coast from Lisbon is the picturesque fishing town of Cascais. Offering a mix of 19th-century architecture alongside its more modern beach resorts, Cascais is a bustling beach holiday destination in the summer months. However, the towns hidden treasures lie just outside its centre by heading up North below Cabo de Roca to the wild Guincho beach, host to some of the fiercest waves and a prime spot to see pro-surfers in their element. 

  • Setúbal


    Setúbal, located in the Arrabida Natural Park is an area distinguished for its delicious wines and remote wild beaches accessed by boat or hiking. The Setúbal Peninsula is one of the most diverse in its landscape, nature, and history with the opportunity for active adventures or something more relaxed and culturally enthralling. Its wines are heavily influenced by the Moscatel grape which dates back to the 8th Century BC. A tasting of this sweet grape is one that definitely can’t be missed and is a rewarding ending after a day of panoramic hiking.
