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.

Portugal's generous hand of attractions, from surf-lashed Atlantic beaches to the wonderful city architecture and world famous vineyards - and the gorgeous sub-tropical island of Madeira - has always delighted our returning guests. But that very diversity makes it more important to place your travel in expert, experienced hands, who can seamlessly combine some or all of the country's highlights - and that means A&K.

Our European team has provided luxury travel to every corner of the continent for over 25 years with knowledgeable staff, long established contacts and superb multilingual guides. They offer you unique insight and access from tours with historians, artists and botanists to gourmet cooking lessons. The perfect Portuguese custard pie, anyone?

The capital, Lisbon, drizzled across seven hills, is Europe's oldest city. Alongside Roman stones and medieval convents, its sports exquisite tile work on everything from towers to tavernas and even trams, the striking Monument to the Discoveries - one of several landmarks celebrating maritime exploration - and a very contemporary vibe with superb live music, including the opportunity to join locals in one of the unique Fado venues.

Take an Abercrombie & Kent luxury holiday to Portugal in 2014 and we'll take you to the north to where the world heritage site of the Douro Valley is as spectacular as it's tasty. With vertiginous riverbanks sculpted by centuries of vineyard cultivation, the world's oldest wine producing region is also, of course, the home of famous port. Nearby Lamego pours some stunning architecture into the bottle with its 12th century castle, Gothic cathedral and Renaissance and Baroque mansions.

There are more man-made masterworks in the Algarve where the magnificent beaches - a mix of long honeyed sand and petite coves - are backed by manicured championship golf courses. Despite its popularity the area has retained its local charm, and is punctuated by fishing villages where restaurant chefs queue at the quay to buy the best of that day's catch.

And we're only just starting. There are UNESCO-listed Sintra's romantic palaces and castles, and gorgeous Madeira, whose sub tropical climate spawns verdant foliage and show-stopping displays of flora including Monte Palace and the Botanical Gardens. As we said, there's an awful lot to Portugal, and with A&K it's all possible.Show less...

Spring escapes with Abercrombie & Kent

The notion of a peak season is usually a function of weather and school holidays, often meaning an increase in hotel rates and airfares. However, at A&K we are big fans of the so-called 'shoulder' season. Here are a few great reasons to get packing this Spring.
