Portugal's Algarve has a deservedly excellent reputation as a luxury holiday or honeymoon destination. Its beaches are beautiful and sun-drenched most of the year and yes, the golf here is superb as are the children's facilities.

But Portugal is much more than this. Head north and you'll find grand old cities including the capital Lisbon, ancient towns, charming hotels and pretty valleys, where you can put your palate to the test at a number of little-visited vineyards. The Douro Valley, the home of Port, is also well worth a visit.

Madeira ia a real treat with warm temperatures year-round, picturesque little villages, some great walking trails through the mountains and sunny, civilised Funchal, where you can mooch around its cobbled streets dipping into quirky little shops and restaurants.

HIGHLIGHTS OF PORTUGAL & MADEIRA

The Duoro Valley, the home of Port. Vine terraces line the hillsides that look down on the Douro River, and produce one of Portugal’s most famous tipples. The other being...

Madeira. Whale watching and fantastic walking trails are among the best bits of the small sleepy island of Madeira, after which its most famous produce is named.

Gaping at the fishermen in the Algarve. The beaches and golf courses may be the temptations for most visitors, but we think watching the locals take enormous risks as they fish from the cliff tops really is something to remember.
