A trip to Portugal is best spent on the move…there are so many gorgeous hidden towns, ancient cities, gleaming beach resort areas and castles set upon rolling hills to explore that it’s nearly impossible to narrow it down to just one. Choosing an area may be challenging but here’s a little secret- Tivoli Hotels, a group comprised of some of Portugal’s most desired accommodations in all of the areas you want to be.

Lisbon’s got it all, but try taking a few days and combining a more serene are with a city break. Meet Tivoli Palacio de Seteais, long a personal favorite from childhood days where we’d run up and down the majestic palatial halls and pretend we were royalty. (ok, maybe we still do that today but so what!) Head straight up the mountains in stunning historical Sintra just a short drive from Lisbon and you’ll come upon this incredibly romantic 18th century regal structure complete with dazzling interiors, period furniture and magnificent frescoes. Linger over high tea served by white-gloved butlers and gaze out into the seemingly endless gardens and allow yourself to feel like a king or queen.
Prefer the beach? Try out the brand new Tivoli Victoria in the stunning Algarve region resort town of Vilamoura, complete enclave designed to include everything you’d want from a European coastal holiday. The adults have the golf, the spa, the splendid design and the nearby fab Nikki Beach Club, while kids will love the 4 pools, signature children’s butlers, and a phenomenal activities program. http://www.tivolihotels.com/ Need additional suggestions to make your Portugal adventure perfect?
