Villas in Portugal – Lisbon
The beauty of Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, has captured the imaginations of locals and travellers alike for centuries. Scattered over the city’s hilly landscape are incredible cathedrals, brightly coloured Portugal villas, impressive squares adorned with fountains and statues, and a wonderful undertone of palpable warmth and spirit. With a distinctly Mediterranean feel, although bordering the Atlantic, the streets are electric with café culture, Fado music, market calling and bubbling bars. If you are looking for villas to rent in Portugal, look no further than Lisbon. Family holidays abroad have never been so exciting and packed with opportunities.
Holiday villas in Portugal for culture
Culture vultures be warned: there is so much exquisite architecture and heritage; plus so many fine galleries, museums and traditional performances to enjoy, you’ll be kept really busy if you rent Portugal villas in Lisbon. Direct holiday homes in this veritable treasure trove of cities benefit from access to Roman ruins, Moorish archaeological sites, centuries-old defensive towers and castles. The true, authentic Lisbon can also be found down the winding lanes, populated by local restaurants and boutique shops right near your Lisbon accommodation. You can see the fascinating cultural sights on foot or take one of the city’s trademark yellow trams to navigate the cobbled streets.
Excursions from your Lisbon accommodation
Although the city is brimming with life, cosmopolitan energy and historical heritage, just outside of Lisbon you will also find a wealth of natural beauty where you can relax in the tranquil surroundings. Wonderful woodlands, charming seaside towns and incredible beaches await you! Book your accommodation in Lisbon on the banks of the Tagus River and take a relaxing boat ride down to the mouth, where it meets the Atlantic. Enjoy this fantastic coastline with its dreamlike blue flag beaches, fine sand, warm waters and inviting atmosphere. If you would rather swim in the comfort of your own holiday homes, rent cottages with hot tubs or swimming pools in the city, or Portuguese villas in the Algarve.
Enjoy local cuisine – Accommodation Lisbon
Lisbon is not just the capital of Portugal, but it can also be considered as the culinary capital, with its markets brimming with colourful fruit and vegetables, fresh fish and Portuguese Ibérico ham. The trademark tins of sardines and other delicious fish line shop shelves with their bold and almost collectable designs. Slaver over tender suckling pig and finish with a traditional custard tart with cinnamon ice-cream and a large glass of local wine. Find these staples of Portuguese cuisine in a variety of locally run restaurants and cafés around the city.
