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.
 

From the Algarve to the Azores

Portugal is a beautiful country to visit. The seafaring nation steeped in tradition cannot only look back on a long and eventful past but today is also one of the most popular destinations for holiday home vacations in Europe. atraveo offers you more than 1,300 holiday apartments and houses all over Portugal which will surely include the perfect domicile for your next holiday. Before commencing the search you should decide which region in Portugal you want to visit.

A little tip: Especially popular with atraveo customers are the heavenly beaches and cliff coasts of the Algarve in the South of Portugal close to the Spanish border.
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.

When on holiday in Portugal you should not miss out on the smaller and larger cities such as Lisbon, Porto, Braga, Aveiro or Faro. Here you can enjoy a shopping tour or just take a nice stroll through the old alleys and enjoy the unique and long-standing culture of the country on the Iberian Peninsula.

A very special travel destination are the islands of the Azores and the beautiful flower island Madeira in the midst the Atlantic Ocean. Madeira lures with its subtropical climate, enchanting landscape and lush vegetation whilst the volcano islands of the Azores located in the Atlantic are a unique place and offer a lot of space for individual holiday makers.
