Portugal Holidaying

Nestled in Europe, off the coast of sunny Spain, Portugal has got to be one of Europes best kept secrets.

Beautiful beaches, culinary excellence and the friendliest people, what more could you want for a peaceful summer holiday?

Where to stay:

Portugal is home to many luxurious hotels, that offer 5 star service however it also somewhere you can find an accommodation to suit you. In particular I have found Vilamoura to be the best all round location for food, nightlife, shopping and relaxation.

Anantara hotel Vilamoura has got to be the best hotel I have stayed in! Absolutely exceptional service, beautiful bedrooms and world class facilities.

Tivoli Marina hotel Vilamoura is also fantastic. Located right on the marina and with the cutest cafe โ€œGleeโ€ in reception, this hotel is definitely a strong contender.

If youโ€™re considering staying further out from the beaches/marina, the Monchique Hotel is the perfect holiday hideaway. Offering yoga, Pilates and mountain walks, this one is for anyone looking to relax and do activities.

Other options include Airbnb, private renting and other hotels, however I cannot give testament to these as I havenโ€™t stayed there before.

Rare Steakhouse Vilamoura

Where to eat

I am a big foodie and I love meat (sorry to all my vegan and veggie readers). One place not to be missed on any trip to Portugal is Rare Steakhouse Vilamoura. The best service and the best food you will have - I can almost guarantee this.

Afternoon tea @Glee is also a great experience. Definitely a lovely treat, especially if on a girls trip or a romantic getaway.

Puro beach Vilamoura do the best chicken quesadillas and fish tacos you will ever eat (confirmed).

If wanting to try something a bit more upmarket and for different views, try Casa do Lago in Quinta do Lago. Beautiful location on the lake and fantastic food!

Things to do

1. Shopping!

So many available places to shop, on the marina and in shopping centres. Definitely my favourite pastime.

2. Visit the ๐Ÿฌ dolphins

Take a boat tour to the caves and on your way you will hopefully see some dolphins. The most beautiful animal ๐Ÿค

3. Eat

So many amazing restaurants available, especially at the marina.

4. Spa

Both the Tivoli and the Anantara have a spa. Definitely worthwhile booking a treatment whilst on holiday.
