Holidays to Portugal
Portugal package holidays have become increasingly popular in recent years and with good reason. A ribbon-like country extending along the Iberian peninsula, which it shares with Spain, a Portugal holiday offers everything from the sun-kissed beaches and golf courses of the Algarve to the culture and cosmopolitan style of Lisbon. From family villas to golfing resorts, we at Coop Travel have last minute Portugal holidays to suit your budget.
Portugal holidays allow you to take a step back in time. Overlooked during the tourism boom of the 1970s, it has only been in recent years that cheap Portugal holidays have really taken off. However, despite the numerous high-rise tourist developments which have flourished along the coast, bargain holidays to Portugal aren’t just about catching some sun on the Algarve. Book last minute Portugal holidays on the Lisbon Coast and you’ll discover beautiful countryside, medieval villages, historic seaside towns and customs and traditions which haven’t changed in centuries.
The capital of Lisbon itself is an eclectic mix of tradition and culture on one hand, and modern malls, restaurants and bars on the other and it is connected to the beach resort of Cascais by a bridge. Portugal package holidays booked in the surrounding resorts offer traditional beach holidays with many relics of Portugal’s sea-faring history. Sesimbra is a picturesque fishing village boasting a 17th century fortress and nature reserve, while last minute Portugal holidays in Tomar place you in the cultural jewel of Portugal’s crown. Built by the Knights Templar, it has numerous historic monuments as well as pretty riverside walks.
For beach fun, families generally look for late deals in Portugal’s Algarve resorts. That doesn’t mean, however, that you can’t enjoy a bit of culture. We at Co-op Travel offer Portugal package holidays in villas and hotels at Faro and Albufeira. Both offer everything in the way of holiday entertainment, with numerous cultural attractions too.
