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.

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.

    “Contemplative and typical madeirensich! Get z. B. to August 15 you are in the right place at the right time for a village Festa! Just follow your nose, it smells of freshly baked Bolo de Caco with garlic butter and espetadas can be here grilling hand over the charcoal-barrels! The local Banda plays on in the Church and in different places. If what is going on you need only follow the sounds or the nose ... After the Festa again you can enjoy peace, beautiful views to the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, is a dip in the nearby pool or swim in the sea or likely that coastal , levada and mountain hiking is being addressed here in the north as the next. Or you'll be fine lured from Brutzelduft - just around the corner there is a bar where many locals like to enjoy fresh fish and seafood. For a larger shopping is only a few minutes in Machico. A perfect place for a fun-filled holiday.” The review of the area has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “Poto da Cruz is a small town, but everything is taken care. There are a few restaurants (is one of them well known for very good fish, the mussels were awesome), the corner shop at the small market place has everything you could possibly need, and there is an old Rammanufaktur / Museum from the turn of the century ( a family heritage of the lessor). The environment is exhilarating and very suitable for hiking. Also, it has very much fun to depart the old coastal roads. Very impressive!”
