Hotels and places to stay: We at Secretplaces have spent many years travelling in search of hotels, B&B’s and guesthouses that are truly authentic and have that something special. The choice was not easy and is quite varied.
In Portugal we have selected a wide variety of authentic places to stay. You can put together your itinerary choosing from boutique hotels in Lisbon, then on to our seaside hotels in Cascais and the Lisbon coast. From here we recommend a trip to a guesthouse or bed and breakfast on the coast of the Alentejo, known as the Costa Vicentina or if you prefer wamer water a holiday in one of the charming Algarve hotels near the ocean.
For those who love the winecountry a stay at one of the small guesthouses and hotels on the Douro River can be livened up with a short stay in a Porto hotel or bed and breakfast.

Wine Country Succulent reds, cool whites, bubbly greens.  Portugal produces an astonishing variety of quality wines given its size, many of them unknown to the outside world and grown in some of the country’s most beautiful regions.

The fortified wines of Port and Madeira, however, are famous the world over and unique to Portugal.

Mountains Portugal may not have the wealth of mountains that its neighbour possesses, but those it has are equally beautiful and wild.

Natural Parks Portugal boasts a wonderful variety of natural parks and nature reserves preserving the natural beauty, wildlife, monuments and way of life of the regions.

From the rugged, mountainous parks of the north, to the peaceful stress free reserves of the south, Portugal has much to offer the visitor when it comes to nature.
