Portugal is a land of romance. Something intangible hangs in the air that will seduce and enrapture you.

Whether in the country or by the sea, we open up our palaces, farms and manor houses to romance, giving a big-hearted welcome to anyone who visits.

A ride in a horse-drawn carriage, a dinner by candlelight, a sunset over the sea, all provide fond memories. Even if it’s just for a few days, the mild climate, the diverse landscape and the romantic atmosphere will ensure unforgettable moments in Portugal.
