Holidays with Quo Vadis

The holidays we can offer at the moment are Golf Holidays in several parts of Portugal.


Portugal as a Holiday Destination

Portugal's most southern province, the Algarve, is the most visited part of Portugal and no wonder - it has some beautiful stretches of coast, a good climate, with hot summers and plenty of winter sun and has been developed to offer the summer holiday maker and golfers all that they need.  But there is much more to explore.

The mountains of the north with forests and rivers and the sparsely populated plains of the south offer contrast to the coast.  Vines are grown in many parts of Portugal.  Portugal has a culture influenced by its invaders of the past and the explorers who left its shores.

The Atlantic coast

North of Porto it is known as the Costa Verde, south Costa de Prata; the whole area around the mouth of the River Tejo is known as Costa de Lisboa with Cascais and Estoril to the north of the river and Caparica, Sesimbra and Setubal to the south, (Costa Azul); further south are the deserted beaches of the Alentejo; and then the Algarve is reached.

The Wines

The green wines of Costa Verde; the well known Port; Dão - from the mountains; Bairrada - as you travel back south; Estremadoura - as you head for Lisbon and the wines from the southern Alentejo plains - and if you have not heard of all of these and enjoy good wines a wine tour of Portugal has a lot to offer.

The Architecture and Built Features

If visiting castles appeal to you try working your way down the eastern side of Portugal - Spain lies beyond.  Further exploration of Portugal reveals the legacies of other visitors - the moorish influence can easily be seen and the tradition of using decorative tiles remains.

Places of Special Interest

If you have plenty of time a tour of central and southern Portugal might include Lisbon, Sintra, Obidos, Fatima, Coimbra, Viseu and a journey through the Serra da Estrela, Évora, a journey across the plains of Alentejo to the Algarve and then back north through Monchique.
