For those who haven’t been yet, Portugal is one of Europe’s best-kept secrets. Its climate is warm and sunny, its countryside green and splendid, and its coastline is lush and ripe for exploration. It’s also easy to get around if you’re planning your Portuguese wellness retreat as part of a wider vacation. The traveling infrastructure is great, and with its compact size, nowhere in Portugal takes too long to reach.
The country is also rich in history and culture. Whilst the modern cities combine modern architecture with ancient buildings, churches and palaces, it doesn’t seem like the countryside has changed much over the past hundred years or so. Beautifully cobbled streets, vineyards and open spaces dominate life in Portugal’s villages, making it a trekker’s paradise.
