For your campsite holiday, Portugal is a must-see destination. Its main asset is its diversity of regions that are all so unlike one another. So you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing where to go for an amazing holiday. Set against the invigorating Atlantic Ocean, under the leisurely rays of the sun, Portugal is a country where nothing is more important than life’s simple pleasures. Even though the climate varies from one region to the next, it is always mild and pleasant throughout the year. These gentle weather conditions, typical of southern Europe, actually promise you 3,000 hours of annual sunshine! So, convinced you have to go to Portugal for your next campsite holiday?
All you have to do now is decide where to stay! You’ll almost certainly be tempted to stick to the west coast. The perfect opportunity to learn all there is to know about wine-making in the Douro valley. You can also visit the Tage valley between Lisbon and Sintra to find out about the local history revolving around stone and azulejos. Or head for Nazaré to watch those crazy surfers defying the colossal ocean waves. As for the south coast, this region is full of must-see towns with names you associate with the sun, like Sagres, Lagos and Faro. You’ll love the terracotta-coloured cliffs, the flowery gardens of the nature parks and, above all, the beaches and coves where the water is turquoise-blue and the cicadas are always in song. Here again, you’ll want to see everything!
If you haven’t already sampled Portuguese food, then your senses are in for a real treat! Every day is filled with delicious new discoveries. Seafood dominates the menu. Served with fresh local peaches, even plain grilled fish becomes a brand new experience for your tastebuds. If you have a sweet tooth, the Pasteis de Nata is an absolute must-try! Your holiday will be sublimed by these egg-custard and caramel pastries sprinkled with cinnamon. They say that every cake shop in Portugal has its own recipe. How will you be able to resist this delicious sweet treat?
