Getaways and Long Weekends

Short Breaks for a great Long Weekend

The next long weekend is at hand and you still haven't decided what you're going to do with it: whether you're going to go on a trip here at home - take a getaway break and discover some of Portugal's own hideaways - or whether you're going to take the opportunity to make one of those trips abroad you've been planning for so long. After mulling it over very thoroughly, we've got some solutions for you here - a very varied range, in fact.

Whenever we travel, we have to deal with the planning and organisation essential to a comfortable and successful trip. This always means going through various tedious processes that dull our enthusiasm for the upcoming break. If you like breaks abroad, have a look at the travel agencies and airlines nearest you and find out about the low cost trips currently on offer. If there's a long weekend and you feel like renting a car and setting off by road to explore wherever the map may take you, then you should get in touch with a car hire firm and follow your nose!

You know how we work: you tell us where you want to go, and we come back with a whole string of suggestions. For example, do you feel like taking part in leisure activities or do you feel like getting out of the urban jungle for a bit of clean air and silence? If that's your scene, then check out the best country houses for a spot of rural tourism or Country House stays and enjoy a few days of natural peace and harmony.

Whenever you want to take a break and get away for a weekend trip, just take a look here and find all sorts of hotels, inns and guesthouses both in Portugal and abroad, that match what you are looking for. Find out whether your stay includes the use of a golf course, or which bars and other services you can enjoy. We suggest all these things and many more besides, so that you won't waste any time unnecessarily and can get the most out of every minute of a stay so rich in experience that it will certainly leave you with the feeling that these short breaks are really not so short after all.
