Portugal

Few countries can claim as many appealing qualities as Portugal - an intriguing and enthralling country on the western wing of the Iberian Peninsula - a perfect combination of striking wind-swept landscapes, delightful cobblestone and white-washed villages, Medieval strongholds with fascinating stories to tell and plenty of vibrant, captivating cities. The stunning landscape varies hugely, satisfying all requisites; from the winding roads, wine caves and steep, terraced vineyards of the lush Douro Valley in the north - producing the grapes for its well-known port - to the beautiful weather-beaten cliffs, rocky bays and abundant idyllic golden beaches of the Algarve in the south, its promises are endless.
