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.

    “Gastronomy and price / performance exists u. Ok, shop only in Calheta. Swimming in a remote bay with location at Promenade.
    Front of the house beach swimming only cumbersome (with risk of injury) because sometimes violent surf. Maybe that's in July or August so different? Main road has personally do not bother us, but may be for sensitive "nature" a disturbing factor, as it on a thoroughfare (east - west connection) is where a tunnel has not yet begun, completed since-2013.”

    “Quiet village, well situated to Allowing easy reach of other towns, beaches etc, only 20 mins by car from Funchal, it was great to come back to the flat in the evening, and after the hustle and noise of larger towns, to relax on the terrace with only the sound of waves on the beach. There is a supermarket in the next town about 15 mins in car, and 2 local resturants in the village.

    Although the beach is rocky ... our secret tip: If you walk towards the cliffs at the end of the beach there is a beautiful Black Sandy Beach.”

    “The shopping possibilities were good and the food in the two restaurants, where we stayed in was very delicious and inexpensive.

    What I missed were services for children and young people, where they can participate. (Recreational activities for children and young people does not exist)”

This is how holiday rental owners described Madalena do Mar

Madalena do Mar is located on the south coast of Madeira Island, belongs to the Ponta do Sol district.
This parish was primitively known as Madalena or Santa Maria Madalena, due to a chapel built by Henrique Alemão (Polish prince who arrived in Madeira in the mid 15th century and ...
