As the British Summer weather continues to disappoint, why not try a Portuguese summer instead?
Portugal has long been a place of refuge for British holidaymakers in need of an escape from the changeable British summer. With long, perfect beaches, great hospitality and activities galore, this year looks set to be no exception. Sun-lovers are taking up bargain flights to Faro from Monarch in their droves and looking forward to a fabulous summer break.
Having long been a haven for golf lovers, this summer's your chance to grab a bargain golfing holiday in Portugal. Those wishing to escape the madness of the sporting UK this summer will find peace and solitude on the pristine courses of the Algarve.
It's simple to build the holiday to suit your budget and taste, from all-inclusive packages, to city breaks and tours. Portugal has been welcoming British holidaymakers for decades, many of whom return year after year for the fantastic food, friendly people and huge range of exciting activities for all the family.
