Luxury Holidays in Portugal
Best time to be there
Spring and autumn are the most pleasant times to visit. July and August can be very hot, especially in the sheltered bays of the
Algarve in the south, though this region is especially pleasant and mild during the winter months. Madeira and the Azores benefit from the warming influence of the Gulf Stream, so can be visited year round.
