The 5th edition of this great guide invites you to discover the delights of Portugal, from the mountains and lush fields of the north to the wildlife of the central regions and the glorious coastlines of the west and south coasts. Take a boat up the Douro, hike or ski in the Serra Da Estrela. Fall in love with the food of Porto, the wines of Madeira and the buzz and the bars of historic, ever-fascinating Lisbon.
Stay in a stylish apartment in Lisbon's heart for couples or families where nothing is too much trouble, an über-chic cliff top hotel with an infinity pool and spa in Madeira, or a super, family-friendly spot just above a surfing beach. From charming pousadas and authentic farmhouses to elegant villas on country estates, there's something to inspire everyone. Every place has been visited by us and you can trust the honesty of our write-ups.
