Thinking of escaping to a warmer climate with lots to offer ? Consider Portugal!! Due to the mild Mediterraean climate many parts of Portugal are perfect for seeking warmth and sun during the winter months. Portugal has the most sunshine hours of any European country. The Algarve is a sun seekers heaven with very little rainfall. The Sintra Region is a bit cooler than the Algarve. But also gets lots of sunshine. There is some rain. Most of it falling during November and February. But daytime temperatures are usually between 12 and 17 degrees Celsius with cooler nights in the Sintra Region and between 16 and 22 in the Algarve. Flowers bloom abundantly during the Autumn, Winter and Spring.
The temperatures and sunshine are perfect for walking holidays. Walking Holidays in the Sintra Natural Park are a delight: breathtaking coastal cliffs, pristine beaches and shorelines, magical forests, romantic historical sites, unique flora and fauna, friendly people, great restaurants at affordable prices etc. All this and more makes for a memorable and truely enjoyable experience.
