Links to luxury accommodations, tours, dining and more in the country of Portugal.

A Slice of Portugal in Rhode Island star
As the time of year arrives when I usually travel to Portugal I get a hankering to feast on the traditional Portuguese foods I savor there.

Dinner at Portugal’s Herdade da Malhadinha Nova star
Set amid miles of rolling hills in Portugal’s Alentejo region, we found a wine estate whose restaurant achieves the perfect balance of localvore ideals with sophisticated and creative cuisine firmly rooted in regional traditions.

Fine Dining at Hotel Monte do Carmo in Portugal star
Pilgrims who stayed in the 19th-century hostelry at the little pilgrimage church of Senhora do Carmo, near the UNESCO World Heritage city of Evora, would never believe the smart and stylish dining room Hotel Rural Monte do Carmo.

Hotel Monte do Carmo Luxury in Portugal star
We wonder at the courage of a couple who transform a remote church and the surrounding pilgrim hostel into a classy art-filled inn, then hire a rising young chef to create a destination restaurant in its dining room.

In Portugal, Luxury Has an Affordable Pricetag star
Even with the US dollar worth only 67 Euro cents, and travel prices rising from soaring fuel costs, Portugal still offers a world-class travel experience at costs comparable to those at home. And often a lot less.

Little Luxuries in Portugal´s Alentejo star
Luxury travel doesn’t necessarily mean a villa-sized hotel room with a bathroom the dimensions of a small ballroom and one-million-to-the-inch-count bed linens. Sometimes it means something far more subtle – and harder to find.

Living in a Portuguese Manor House star
Travelers looking for an experience that combines luxury lodgings with a rare chance to live in a distinguished manor hotel should plan a vacation itinerary in northern Portugal.

Lodging in the Grand Manor – Luxury in Portugal star
The shining example of the Solares de Portugal, Paco de Calheiros, offers an exceptional travel experience that goes far beyond any hotel. Guests of the Count and his wife can spend their days exploring the estate or touring northern Portugal

Luxury Lodging on a Wine Estate star
Staying in a noble manor house on a famous wine estate is the best way to explore Portugal’s famed Douro Valley region, home of Port wine.

Luxury Lodgings in Borba Portugal star
While many of the lodgings in the Solares de Portugal group are noble manor houses or great wine estates, some have more modest beginnings. They may be a group of town houses converted into a little oasis of luxurious tranquility.

Martinhal Beach Resort in Portugal’s Algarve star
At Europe’s most southwestern tip, this beach resort was designed to fit the landscape, its low buildings set amid indigenous trees and grasses above a half-mile crescent of golden sand.

Monte do Casal – Luxury in Portugal’s Algarve star
Drive just a few miles inland from the golden sun-drenched beaches and it’s an altogether different Algarve. That’s where we found Monte do Casal, a luxurious and welcoming hide-away amid cool leafy gardens.

Portugal Manor House Lodgings – Better than Hotels star
Plan your trip to Portugal around manor house accommodations, where you are welcomed to wine estates and historic mansions by the owners themselves.

Portugal’s Casa de Mogofores – More than a Hotel star
The beauty of lodgings at the manor houses and country estates affiliated with Solares de Portugal is that each is operated by the owner, who lives there and is the host. Because of that, at Casa de Mogofores, we were introduced to Bairrada DOC wines.

TAP Portugal Customer Service Begins on the Ground star
The decline in customer service among airlines is so widespread that a genuine show of interest and concern is a rare luxury. We just got a reminder of what a luxury it can be.
