With enchanting landscapes like the Douro Valley, the vibrant streets of Lisbon and the hidden coves along the Algarve, you'll be hard pressed to find such a charming lifestyle anywhere else. Fresh seafood, delectable wine, and al fresco dining are high on the agenda here... so go with an appetite!
