Hello Portugal!  For those looking for a last minute getaway for New Years or a week-long exploration over Chinese New Year, we have some inspiration for you.  Why not head to Portugal?

In between the dramatic cliffs and gorgeous sandy beaches, Portugal is popular for so many reasons including:

*  It is packed full of culture!  Palaces, monasteries, and castles - yes, please!

*  It offers 365 days of surf!  There are family-friendly surfing options for learning too.

*  Enjoy food and wine (including the infamous Port wine)

*  Portugal's beaches are amazing!  Costa do Sol is one of the best places for families, relaxation, and water sports.

Portugal is especially popular with families (including those traveling with babies).  One of our favorite property groups is the family-friendly Martinhal Family Hotels & Resorts which offers kid-approved properties in both Lisbon and along the Cascais coast.  They are modern, offer high-class family-friendly accommodation, a wide range of children’s facilities and activities of the highest quality, restaurants, and bars with kids corners or play areas in the same area to enable the “mother to have her cappuccino with the foam still on it”, and much more.
