    “Funchal is very worth seeing and we would come back at any time. The restaurant Monumental Grill was 150m from our apartment, very good service. Monte and the botanical garden were also worth a visit. Good bus connections.”

    “The old town is manageable and moderately attractive. The city is crossed by an expressway, which is heard and seen in many places. Car parks are favorable for German conditions. The botanical garden is not really worth the entrance fee - then rather Blandy`s Garden. The market hall should be seen. From the cableway (expensive) one can first and foremost consider the effects of the local forest fires of recent years.”

Seafood and port wine – Portugal’s culinary delights

Portugal | Portugal has always lived with and from the sea. So don’t miss out on the delicious seafood that is served in one of the many restaurants and will turn your holiday in Portugal into a culinary highlight. Alternatively prepare a delicate maritime dish in the kitchen of your holiday home booked with atraveo. You will be able to get freshly caught fish at every harbour or larger market. Together with fresh vegetables and herbs from the market you can easily prepare a great meal which you can then enjoy on the terrace of your holiday house. Portugal’s national dish is stockfish. Though the dishes seem somewhat peculiar it can be worthwhile giving some a try. The Portuguese are said to know more than 1,000 different ways to prepare those air-dried fish (mainly cod) – so all tastes are catered for.

Not only fish – whether fresh or air-dried – but also the Portuguese wine is known all over the world. The many distinctive features of port wine are very complex with lay persons struggling to ascertain an overview. In most cases the house wine of restaurants or a bottle of Tawney or Colheita port will prove to be a good choice. By the way a good port can be a great present to take back for you loved ones not with you!
Where will you spend your next holiday in Portugal? Popular destination with atraveo customers are the southern coastal region of the Algarve, the western coastal areas Costa de Lisboa, Costa de Prata and Costa Verde as well as the flower island Madeira and Alentejo in the heart of Portugal.

Also very popular are the coastal regions of Costa de Lisboa, Costa de Prata and Costa Verde. On atraveo you can also find a large selection of pretty and well furnished holiday homes. In its beautiful heartland Portugal impresses with its rich and diverse landscape. Why not visit Alentejo or the lush green area in the north of Portugal.

A very special travel destination are the islands of the Azores and the beautiful flower island Madeira in the midst the Atlantic Ocean.
