Spend Your Holidays in Portugal in Cosy Portugal Holiday Villas
If you find yourself wanting a bit of a change from your usual holidays in the Costa de la Luz in neighbouring Spain and want to move on to a new county, but don't want to travel too far away, then it's time to visit Portugal. With the locals' laid-back way of life, the welcoming beaches, towns and cities, and warm weather lightened by gentle breezes, it's hard to feel anything other than relaxation during your Portugal holidays. If you're looking for a city break, then the country's largest city and capital, Lisbon, is the ideal destination. Not only is it a large metropolitan area, but it is also surrounded by beautiful coastline which means that you can combine your city trip with a beach break. Don't forget that there are Portuguese islands in the Atlantic sea, Madeira and the Azores isles, so if you fancy a trip to a paradise island then that is also possible in Portugal, for example in the largest of the Azores, São Miguel, and the subtropical weather here is bound to leave you wanting to go back! Mainland Portugal boasts a Mediterranean climate, indeed one of the warmest in all of Europe, and the Algarve in particular experiences temperatures similar to those on the south west coasts of Australia.
