Regional Activities

Sandwiched between Spain and the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal has always displayed something of an idiosyncratic personality. Famous for its Port, football and beaches, Portuguese explorers such as Vasco da Gama charted the world we now know. From the rich valleys of the Douro and the impressive architecture of Lisbon, down to the warm beaches of the Algarve, Portugal remains at once familiar and yet elusive. Distance from Resort: Beach: 2 km; Marina: 10 km; Shops: 2 km; Supermarket: On-site
