Visit Portugal in the winter time

Winter in Portugal is a delightful season with frequent sunshine up and down the country and temperatures that rarely fall below 10ºC, so we invite you to visit Portugal in the winter time!

With an average of over 300 sunny days a year, winter here can sometimes seem more like spring and you will always need your sunglasses. What’s more, some places have a special charm at this time of year:


Douro, with its World Heritage scenery, becomes even more beautiful in September and October, when the grapes are harvested. You can even overnight at one of the wineries that produce port wine and excellent table wine, or at a fine mansion house. We suggest you Quinta do Vallado, The Vintage House Douro, Solar Egas Moniz and River House 1872. We invite you to experience the Food & Wine Tour in Porto & Douro.


The Algarve is the most well-known area for long stay winter in Portugal due to its beautiful beaches that surround the area. We suggest the Food Lovers Tour in Algarve

Alentejo region also has excellent conditions for spending a peaceful warm winter in Portugal. You can explore the Inland Alentejo Walk Tour.

This peaceful region with its beautiful nature and culture is a paradise for people that are looking for harmony and great food. We suggest you Herdade da Matinha, Quinta da Dourada, Herdade do Touril and Vila Monte Farm House.
