Located on the southwestern coast of Europe, Portugal offers a mild maritime climate, cool and rainy in the north, warmer and drier in the south. It has a mountainous terrain north of the Tagus River and rolling plains in the south.
The almost 1,800 km wide coastline with its many sandy beaches, the mild weather, but also the well-preserved historic heritage makes it one of the most favourite holiday destinations, not only for Europeans, but also for tourists from all around the world. But Portugal is much more than just a tourist site. The nuclear power free country is a founding member of NATO and a EU member since 1986. It has developed modern infrastructures and railway and road networks, and is served by three major airports in Porto, Lisbon and Faro.
It is a modern European country, were tradition is still appreciated, and whose people are known for their calm and gentle manner, reflecting the country’s atmosphere, which invites you not just to spend some time off, but also to turn your holiday stay into something more permanent. Close enough to get things done, far enough to enjoy life.
