A golfers' paradise, there are few places on earth that, like Portugal, offer such a glut of wonderful, professionally-designed courses accompanied by world-class hotels and, of course, a fortuitous climate.

"A country of astonishing diversity and idyllic weather, not to mention picture-postcard scenery with rugged coastlines, pristine beaches, dazzling houses and superb golfing opportunities."

Portugal’s natural beauty and traditional charms are delightfully enhanced by the many sophisticated resorts and exceptional sporting facilities that are found here. And when it comes to beaches, Portugal has pretty much got everything covered with just under 500 miles of coastline and a beach for just about every taste.

Quiet Madeira, on the other hand, is perfect for those seeking gorgeous vistas and luxury without too much glitz: little wonder then that this was the place Sir Winston Churchill chose to write his war memoirs.
