A timeshare holiday in Portugal is one of the best ways to explore this fascinating country. Flying time from London to Lisbon is two and a half hours - add 40 minutes if Faro is your destination and subtract 30 minutes if you intend of flying in to Porto. With near perfect weather all year round, beautiful scenery, immaculate beaches and a vibrant nightlife, Portugal offers the timeshare owner a wealth of things to do and places to visit.
A busy city with outstanding views, brilliant nightlife and excellent shopping, even if your final destination is a timeshare villa on the Algarve to the south, Lisbon is well worth a visit. St. Georges Castle and the viewpoint at Miradouro da Senhora do Monte offer spectacular views over the city and the surrounding countryside. The chic shopping district is found in Chiado and for a taste of 'old' Portugal, head to the quaint streets of Alfama and grab a bite at one of the sidewalk cafes. Lisbon has a number of excellent beaches; one of the most popular is the beach at Carcavelos, a haven for the surfing crowd.
There are a number of distinct regions in Portugal, each with unique charms and holiday highlights. The island of Madeira is a popular timeshare resales choice and of course, the magnificent golf courses of the Algarve draw keen golfers in their thousands each year. The second largest city in Portugal, Porto, is a great choice for travellers. The River Douro winds through the city and the Palacio da Bolsa is a cultural treasure.
Heading south from Lisbon along the coast, you'll discover small fishing villages, friendly locals and some of the best seafood at neighbourhood eateries. The resorts along the southern shores of Portugal are outstanding: Albufeira, Faro, Portimão and Olhão all offer excellent amenities and a good choice of timeshare resorts. The entire southern coastline is known as 'the Algarve' and boasts some of the best beaches in Europe. Falesia Beach offers safe swimming, stretches for miles across golden sands and the sun glinting off the reddish cliffs is an awesome sight. Praia da Marina in the Vilamoura area is acknowledged as one of the finest beaches in Europe, but there are literally dozens of sandy coves and bays along the coastline if you're looking for something more secluded.
Visit the 'Old Town' in Falesia for traditional Portuguese cuisine, but hold back on the "port" wine - it's very strong! While a dish of snails may be a starter in the rest of the world, in Portugal it's a feast! Platters heaped high with snails, other seafood dishes and of course, delicious meats and cheeses make for a delectable lunch at any local taverna. Faro is the capital of the Algarve yet retains its small town ambience and atmosphere while offering modern tourists the best beaches and excellent resorts with a myriad of activities, water based sports and a number of theme parks. Diving is a popular sport in Faro as well as kayaking and quad biking into the surrounding hills. A trip to Deserta Island is a fantastic way to beat the crowds and relax in the sun after a short boat ride.
Set apart from the beach resorts of the Algarve, the Four Seasons Vilamoura is a golfers dream with discounts and special rates at a number of the fine courses in the area. Spacious holiday apartments with spectacular views and all mod cons make an ideal base for your timeshare holiday in the Algarve. Whether you are spending time on the beach at Praia da Rocha or sipping sundowners at the Marina at Vilamoura, the area is filled with things to do and see that reflect the beauty of Portugal.
A charming resort in Albufeira, Pine Cliffs Resort is a top choice for timeshare resales. The resort forms part of the magnificent Sheraton Hotel estate and guests have access to superb facilities and amenities. From the cliff top setting, with views out over the Med, visitors can make use of the private beach, a golf course onsite or simply relax on a private terrace overlooking the swimming pools.
