Those looking to stay in Lisbon have plenty of historical buildings to see in the old town, whilst 30 minutes along the coast is the beautiful town of Cascais and just fifteen minutes from here is Sintra – an incredible town in the mountains filled with castles.

Where can we go for nightlife?

Those looking to the Algarve should head to Albufeira if they want late night bars and nightclubs! This town is busy all year round and is popular with stag and hen parties. Vilamoura is popular with golfers although isn’t quite as wild as Albufeira whereas Lisbon offers what you would expect from any capital city – cool hipster bars to traditional bars to nightclubs. Cascais and Estoril have lively little pockets of activity but is seen as somewhere more relaxed.
