Where to Stay in Portugal

Portugal is renowned for beaches, the Algarve, lovely hotels, great golf, but if you only go to touristy places you miss the real Portugal and some of the finest historical hotels in the world -The Pousadas. This is where to stay in Portugal

This article will feature five such Pousadas, in interesting places, and you need to check them out. Why not hire a car and visit all five for you vacation this year.

where to stay in portugalThe first of our where to stay in Portugal places is The Pousada Rainha Santa Isabel. It is one of the most highly rated Pousadas, very luxurious and is inserted in what was a 13th century castle in the hill town of Estremoz. It was a royal castle hundreds of years ago, was visited by Vasco da Gama. The views from here are spectacular. The whole pousada is furnished with museum quality antiques, the public rooms are enormous, and the 30 bedrooms have four poster beds. If you like big staircases, wide marble corridors, and massive furniture, allied to excellent food served in a huge banqueting hall by attentive staff, then you will love it here. Estremoz is about 90 miles east of Lisbon.

where to stay in portugalThe second of our where to stay in Portugal places is The Pousada Dos Loios at Evora. To stay here you will need to go to Evora, some 86 miles south east of Lisbon. Evora is a protected town famed as an open air museum of Portugese archtecture. You will find an astonishing array of architecture here, and when floodlit at night it is a wonderful sight. people compare Evora to Florence and seville, but in truth the Moorish overtones of the architecture with the whitewashed buildings sets Evora apart. The core of the old city is fascinating, especially the Gothic cathedral. The Pousada is in a 15th century baronial mansion which later became a convent. The level of hospitality at the Pousada Dos Loios makes it one of the most luxurious, where the former refectory serves as the dining room, although meals outside in the cloisters are a joy.

where to stay in portugalThe third of our where to stay in Portugal places is The Pousada De Santa Maria in Marvao. Marvao sits three thousand feet above the Alentejo heartland of Portugal about 140 miles north east of Lisbon. Within fortified 13th century ramparts sits a really charming  medeival castle town, very small and intimate with a population of around 300. The Pousada de Santa Maria is best described as cozy, and whilst it might lack the imposing grandeur of other pousadas the intimacy is a large part of what makes it so attractive. It is a conversion from a group of 18th century houses, with the classic red tile floors, and whitewashed walls. The views from the restaurant of the mountains four miles away which are in Spain explains the importance of Marvao as a fortified town. The Pousada de Santa Maria is a great place to relax, enjoy good food, and get away from the 21st century. The fourth of our where to stay in Portugal places is The Pousada Do Castelo in Obidos.  50 miles north of Lisbon is the beautiful but tiny whitewashed village of Obidos which is surrounded by a Moorish wall. nearly 1000 years ago it was deemed so lovely as to be a marriage dowry for a queen. The next 600 years this was repeated, and so the Obidos is a real living museum of a town and paradise for photographers. The Moorish wall is in fact ramparts stretching for over half a mile, and to walk round is to see some magnificent views. The castle was built as a fortress and later converted to a royal palace. Today one wing is the delightful pousada, allowing guests to live the life of nobility in what must be one of the most atmospheric of hotels anywhere. With the baronial hall filled with suits of armour it's not difficult to let your imagination run riot. Whilst the food may not be gourmet, the views are, and guests at the pousada are able to enjoy Obidos before and after the tour buses.

where to stay in portugalThe fifth of our where to stay in Portugal places is the Hotel Palacio De Seteais in Sintra. Sintra is 18 miles north west of Lisbon, and was described by none other than Lord Byron as the most delightful village in Europe. The cool gentle climate made Sintra the favourite summer residence for Portugese Kings for more than 500 years. Today the same holds true and it is the great place to escape from the heat and the bustle for the people of Lisbon. It is equally popular with tourists. There are dramatic ruins of an ancient Moorish Citadel Castelo dos Mouros with amazing views to the sea from its commanding position on the highest peak at Sintra. The Hotel Palacio De Seteais is a dreamy 18th century palace built by a Dutchman which looks across vineyards and orange groves to the sea. The rooms are full of antiques, and there is even gold leaf and crystal chandeliers throughout.

British Virgin Islands Vacations are some of the most perfect in the world

The British Virgin  Islands actually consists of what is left of volcanic islands that sank into the sea, scattered across miles of the most amazing blue and turquoise waters. Four hundred years ago it was the haunt of pirates, today, most visitors come here to sail and explore the sixty-plus islands, islets, and cays. For sailors it is fantastic to drop anchor in inviting, deserted coves, walk empty beaches, visit Tortola's Cane Garden Bay at sunset, or dive the wreck of the 310-foot RMS Rhone, a royal mail steamer that sank in a hurricane near Salt Island in 1867.
 The Moorings, a world-famous yacht operation, has its Caribbean headquarters in Tortola. The seventy-two-slip charter dock and seventy slip visitors' dock are a tourist destination in themselves. Stroll the boards and meet some of the most interesting boat lovers and owners in the world. Most of these yachts probably sell for more than the home you left behind, many in the millions. Probably the best accommodation however is at Frenchmans Cay West End Tortola quaint accommodation and fantastic staff.

british virgin islands vacationsNearby, although way up at 1,300 feet above sea level, the lofty Skyworld restaurant provides an amazing 360-degree view of these sailing waters, plus one of the most innovative menus in the area. Order the conch fritters, which even the locals admit are the best on the island, and Skyworld's signature steak, prepared with port and peaches, and you'll start looking for available island real estate in the morning. Throw caloric caution to the wind and go for the "chocolate suicide" dessert, made with dark and white chocolates.

About 2 miles west, Bomba's Shack is the island's oldest, most memorable, and most uninhibited watering hole, and one of the Caribbean's most famous bars. The colorful makeshift decor with driftwood and flotsam nailed together, with a sand floor and walls fes-tooned with old license plates, postcards, abandoned rubber tires, helps camouflage a powerful sound system that gets things jumpin' even before Bomba's Punches
Which are made with homemade rum, kick in. Crowds of yachties and folk from all over Tortola and the neighbouring islands fill the beach and rock on to live music until the wee hours during "full moon parties," and on Wednesday and Sunday nights aficionados gather for the all-you-can-eat barbecue of Creole specialties.

british virgin islands vacationsFor latent hermits or people who want nature all to themselves, Guana Island and its 850 virginal acres will never feel crowded, even with an occasional full house of thirty guests. It's the Galapagos of the Caribbean, a wildlife sanctuary that's said to have the richest variety of flora and fauna of any island its size in the region. A hundred species of birds, roseate flamingos, black-necked stilts, herons, egrets, and the endangered masked booby, make Guana a paradise for bird-watchers. In the 18th century, Guana was dominated by a sug¬arcane and cotton plantation owned by two American Quaker families, and today that classic simplicity is still evident in the stylish but restrained accommodations at the island's only lodge. The panoramic sweep from the whitewashed ridge-top cottages is spectacular. Reached only by boat, the hilly island, with its twenty nature trails and seven beaches, is virtually private and for guests' use alone, even yacht "drop-ins" are discouraged.  Two of the beaches are accessible only by the hotel's private launch. Why not invite twenty-nine friends and rent the whole island? The island is ten minutes by launch from Tortola.

british virgin islands vacationsRoll up your trousers and wade ashore to this modern-day alternative to the real world. The tiny island of Jost Van Dyke boasts one of the area's most stunning beaches. Four simple waterfront bungalows and two air-conditioned rooms make up the colony of The Sandcastle Hotel, which has an island dog and cat on staff, no electricity except in the kitchen, and solar-heated showers. Wear to dinner what you wore to breakfast, and spend the day moving from one hammock to another with a Painkiller in hand: The bar's signature drink (now famous throughout the islands) can vary from mild to lethal. Pity the yachties who row in just for the day, although the highlight of their sailing vacation is usually a candlelit four-course dinner at the Soggy Dollar. It's the focal point of the hotel, and the island, and deservedly beloved in yachting circles.
This 3- by 4-mile island, whose main street is a sandy lane, is also home to Foxy's Tamarind Bar, a legendary yachtsman's haunt that's a lovely half-hour stroll down the beach and over the hill into Great Harbor.

british virgin islands vacationsFor decades, word of mouth celebrated the 500-acre resort of little dix bay and the exquisite location it commanded on a perfect half-mile crescent of white-sand beach on Virgin Gorda, the "Fat Virgin." Together with its sister property, Caneel Bay, Little Dix was created by Laurance Rockefeller in the 1960s for his blue-blood circle of old-money friends and family. Despite a change in ownership, it remains a classic, still known for its laid-back luxury, relaxed pampering, and a low-key, unpretentious ambience. The native stone and hardwood cottages nestle amid the lush but impeccably manicured grounds, a veritable Garden of Eden maintained by no less than twenty full-time gardeners. Even breakfast is romantic in the dining area, four intercon¬nected, open-sided, thatch-roofed pavilions sitting right on the hotel's marvellous beach. Dinners are both genial and exciting, the work of an ambitious and sophisticated kitchen the Rockefellers would have been proud of.
About a mile south is the island's most noted natural site, The Baths, where huge,
time-sculpted granite boulders, some as big as small houses,create spellbinding pools, shallow coves, and interconnected grottoes that are heaven for snorkelers, swimmers, and those who merely appreciate natural beauty. Stacked along the beach in jumbled piles, these prehistoric rocks are most impressive when approached by sea. The site is on every visitor's list, so to avoid the boatloads of in-and-out tourists and cruise ship passengers, come early or late, or wander along the less-visited coastline on either side, where the massive boulders continue.

What To See In Spain

What to see in Spain does
not have to include Marbella, any of the Costas, Granada, or Seville.

 Arcos de la Frontera in Andalusia. If you love spectacular views, then Arcos belongs to the must see places. The views from the cliff hanging terrace in the historic centre of this old Arab town will not be bettered in Europe. Imagine being dramatically perched on a crag, overlooked by a Moorish castle and in turn looking down on the Guadalete River, which surrounds the town on the other three sides. Arcos was built to be an impregnable fortress, and is like a natural amphitheatre, and its very narrow winding streets, some ending in steps is very much Arabic in style.The whitewashed walls of the houses indicates that Arcos belongs to the Ruta de los Pueblos Blancos, a series of a dozen or so similarly painted villages perched on hills, on this popular route. You may wish to stay at the Parador Arcos de la Frontera known also as Hotel Casa del Corregidor, which was an 18th century palace, and seat of the King's magistrate. Charles de Gaulle was so moved by the view he wrote his memoirs here.





Villa come from behind to stun City

Leandro Bacuna and Andreas Weimann left Manchester City stunned as Aston Villa twice came from behind to record a remarkable 3-2 victory.
Fresh from netting nine goals in a week against Manchester United and Wigan Athletic, City were in dominant mood in the first half on Saturday but had to wait for Yaya Toure's sixth strike in eight games to put them ahead in its final minute.
Having failed to muster a shot on target before the break, Karim El Ahmadi produced a clinical finish to haul Villa level amid strong suspicions of offside in the 51st minute.
Edin Dzeko glanced in from Samir Nasri's corner to restore City's advantage five minutes later but Bacuna lashed home a stunning free-kick for his first Villa goal after Matija Nastasic fouled Weimann.
And Nastasic and Vincent Kompany were caught napping as Weimann stole in to beat the on-rushing Joe Hart with a 75th-minute winner.
In the injury absence of forward duo Christian Benteke (hip) and Gabriel Agbonlahor (ankle), Villa manager Paul Lambert handed a first start to last weekend’s match-winner at Norwich City, Libor Kozak, and reverted to a 5-3-2 formation.
Sergio Aguero picked up a knock after firing a derby day brace last weekend, meaning Dzeko partnered Alvaro Negredo in attack. Elsewhere, Jesus Navas dropped to the bench to accommodate Villa old boy James Milner in the City midfield.
And Milner had the game's first opening in the third minute, lashing wide left-footed after Dzeko dummied a low cross from Aleksandar Kolarov.
Continuing the impressive form he showcased six days ago, Samir Nasri was at the hub of an impressive start by the visitors.
First, a cute through-ball allowed Dzeko to slide in on the angle and draw a save from Brad Guzan before the France international fired narrowly wide from the edge of the box having led a swift counter-attack.
Dzeko failed to get on top of a good headed chance from a 14th-minute corner and City proceeded to dominate the opening half hour without again testing Guzan.
City's pressure continued largely unchecked but they were undermined failing to consistently find a quality final ball until the half’s outstanding player intervened at its conclusion.
After watching Ciaran Clark clear off the line and Nathan Baker deflect his fierce drive wide, Toure crowned a typically dominant display from midfield by steering Nasri’s corner through Guzan’s legs.
Negredo and Kolarov threatened as City began the second period at a furious place but Manuel Pellegrini's team would soon rue their profligacy.
El Ahmadi collected Bacuna's wonderfully weighted pass to fire home low across Hart as the linesman's flag stayed down.
But as they did from their ninth corner, City netted from their 10th to ensure parity lasted only six minutes.
Dzeko made the most of a static Villa defence to glance Nasri's in-swinging delivery past Guzan and the USA international got down well moments later to keep out a thunderous Negredo volley.
Ring-wing crosses from Zabaleta and Navas – introduced in place of Nasri – invited further punishment that did not arrive from Dzeko but just as Villa looked to be entering survival mode the stunned City again.
Villa Park was in raptures following Bacuna's heroics and the noise levels were further ramped up as Weimann lifted Villa up to ninth in the table – only a point behind City in fifth.

Johor DT sebelah kaki ke separuh akhir

Johor Darul Takzim (Johor DT) mencerahkan peluang ke separuh akhir Piala Malaysia selepas mencatatkan kemenangan selesa 4-2 ke atas juara bertahan, Kelantan dalam saingan suku akhir pertama di Stadium Tan Sri Hassan Yunos, Larkin, pada hari Sabtu.

Skuad Harimau Selatan kendalian Azmi Mohamed tidak menunggu lama untukmembuka tirai jaringan menerusi sepakan percuma Jasazrin Jamaluddin seawal minit keempat sebelum penyerang kebangsaan, Norshahrul Idlan Talaha menggandakan kedudukan pada minit ke-20.

Dua minit kemudian, pemain tengah Kelantan, Indra Putra Mahayuddin merapatkan jurang gol sebelum Safiq Rahim meletakkan pasukan tuan rumah berada dalam keadaan selesa dengan gol ketiga pada minit ke-39.

Bersambung babak kedua, pemain pertahanan, Obinna Nwaneri menjaringkan gol kedua untuk Kelantan pada minit ke-49 sebelum Leonel Nunez memastikan pasukan tuan rumah membawa kelebihan selesa ke Kota Baharu dengan gol keempat menerusi sepakan percuma pada minit ke-81.

Di Stadium Jalan Besar Singapura, pasukan tuan rumah yang merupakan juara Liga Super, Lions XII hanya mampu mencatatkan kemenangan tipis ke atas Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (ATM) hasil jaringan tunggal pemain pertahanannya, Madhu Mohana pada minit ke-39.

Pertembungan membabitkan naib juara dan juara Liga Perdana iaitu Sime Darby FC dan Sarawak di Stadium Majlis Perbandaran Selayang berkesudahan seri tanpa jaringan.

Pahang menundukkan Selangor PKNS FC, 3-2 pada satu lagi aksi suku akhir pertama yang berlangsung di Stadium Darul Makmur, Kuantan, semalam.

M'sia berkongsi mata dengan India

Malaysia bangkit daripada ketinggalan dua gol pada separuh masa pertama untuk mengikat India 3-3 pada perlawanan peringkat kumpulan Kejohanan Hoki Piala Sultan Johor di Stadium Taman Daya pada hari Sabtu.
Walaupun kedua-dua pasukan akan bertemu dalam final pada pukul 8 malam esok, tetapi anak buah Muhammad Dharma Raj Abdullah dan Gregg Clark tetap menyajikan permainan yang menarik.

Permainan pada peringkat awal berlangsung agak hambar dengan kedua-dua pasukan mengambil sikap berhati-hati dan hanya sekali-sekali melancarkan serangan ke kawasan D.

India berjaya memperolehi gol yang pertama pada minit ke-10 menerusi jaringan Satbir Singh, selepas pukulan sudut penalti Amit Dass ditampan lemah oleh penjaga gol Malaysia Mohd Hazrul Ahmad Sobri.

Teruja dengan gol itu, India mula menggandakan serangan ke kawasan Malaysia dan pada minit ke-33, Ramandeep Singh berjaya menembusi benteng pertahanan negara dan menjaringkan gol yang menarik.

Pada separuh masa kedua, Malaysia mula melakukan serangan bertali arus tetapi ketumpulan jentera serangan menggagalkan usaha mereka untuk mendapatkan jaringan.

Bagaimanapun sikap tidak berputus asa skuad negara itu dibalas apabila memperolehi pukulan sudut penalti pada minit ke-62 dan Shahril Saabah berjaya merapatkan jaringan.

Kejayaan mendapatkan gol pertama itu telah menaikkan semangat pemain Malaysia yang meningkatkan serangan dan dua minit selepas jaringan pertama, Rashid Baharom, hasil gerakan solo, di kiri pintu gawang India telah berjaya menyamakan kedudukan.

Kira-kira 5,000 penonton di stadium semakin riuh apabila pada minit ke-68, Malaysia menjaringkan gol ketiga juga daripada Shahril Saabah menerusi pukul sudut penalti.

Bagaimanapun kegembiraan peminat negara tidak tahan lama apabila seminit sebelum tamat permainan, pemain India Yousuf Affan berjaya menyamakan kedudukan menerusi pukulan kencang melepasi kawalan Mohd Hazrul.

Pada perlawanan terdahulu, Pakistan berjaya menewaskan Argentina 4-1.

Atletico stun Real!

Real Madrid suffered their first La Liga defeat to rivals Atletico Madrid since 1999 as they lost 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The less-fancied visitors took an early lead as Diego Costa netted his eighth goal of the season following an exquisite through-ball from in-form midfielder Koke.

Costa was a nuisance throughout and was lucky not to receive a red card for squaring up to referee Mateu Lahoz, but Atletico left the door open for Real by not adding a second.

After a poor first half, Carlo Ancelotti threw on Gareth Bale for his home debut at half-time, but the world’s most expensive player was largely ineffectual.

Koke almost added a second late on as he hit a curling shot onto the crossbar, but there was still enough time for the hosts to waste two great chances.

Firstly, Bale saw his scissor-kick palmed away by Thibaut Courtois and then fellow substitute Alvaro Morata could only put his shot into the sidenetting as Atletico held on for a seventh consecutive league win.

That victory keeps Atletico in touch with Barcelona, who secured the club's greatest ever start to a league season by also winning against Almeria on Saturday.

Lionel Messi broke the deadlock in the 21st minute with a wonderful strike after cutting in from the right, but the Argentine had to leave the pitch with a thigh injury before the half-hour mark.

Barcelona’s disappointment briefly inspired Almeria, but the champions eventually doubled their lead in the second period when Adriano poked Cesc Fabregas’ low cross past Esteban in the hosts’ goal.

Elsewhere, Sevilla faced a tricky test at Anoeta against Real Sociedad at the end of a week that saw their winless run away from home in the league stretch to over 12 months.

Sevilla's last away success came against Deportivo La Coruna on September 24 of last year, but they got off to a great start at San Sebastian as Jairo Samperio slotted past Claudio Bravo following Ivan Rakitic’s exquisite lofted through-ball.

However, after Piotr Trochowski incredibly missed an open goal towards the end of the first half, Sociedad equalised through Antoine Griezmann in the second period.

Juan Cala received a red card late on for the visitors, but they held on for a commendable point.

Valencia’s recent resurgence continued in Saturday’s early kick-off against Rayo Vallecano, as they picked up their third consecutive La Liga win after a run of four defeats in all competitions.

Rayo came into the match on the back of five straight losses in the league and Valencia made sure that run would continue.

Jonas’ fourth goal in three games was enough for the home side to clinch three points in order to move into the top six.

Baggies add to Moyes' problems

West Brom earned their first victory over Manchester United in 29 years as they claimed a 2-1 win at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Steve Clarke's side had not beaten United since a 2-0 success in March 1984, but set about correcting that stat as Morgan Amalfitano ended a delightful dribble with a chipped finish early in the second half.
And, though Wayne Rooney levelled things up from a free-kick shortly afterwards, substitute Saido Berahino restored the visitors' advantage before they held on manfully to claim all three points.
With his side looking to get their Premier League title push back on track following last week's 4-1 defeat to Manchester City, David Moyes made seven changes to his team.
Javier Hernandez was given another chance to impress after scoring the winner in the League Cup victory over Liverpool in midweek, while Robin van Persie was forced to settle for a place on the bench having missed the last two games with a groin injury.
Steve Clarke, meanwhile, handed starts to Victor Anichebe and Claudio Yacob in place of Nicolas Anelka and James Morrison respectively, but the West Brom boss was forced to reshuffle his team yet again just 13 minutes into the match.
Berahino was thrown into the fray, with the 20-year-old forward replacing the injured Scott Sinclair in attack.
Berahino was unfortunate not to score just a few moments after coming on, as he nodded an inswinging cross from the left just wide of David de Gea's post.
A few minutes earlier, Hernandez had gone close to turning home Nani's cross from the right.
Anderson went even closer with half an hour on the clock, as he struck the crossbar with a header from close range before smashing the rebound hopelessly over the top.
Stephane Sessegnon had the best chance before the break, but the Benin international failed to control a side-footed effort following a flick-on from a corner as he shot high and wide.
United were forced into a change at the break, as youngster Adnan Januzaj was introduced in place of Shinji Kagawa, with the Japan international presumably having picked up an injury during a promising first-half performance.
And things soon went from bad to worse for the hosts, as Amalfitano opened the scoring eight minutes into the second half.
The Frenchman simply walked through the United defence after picking the ball up in a deep position and, after shrugging off Rio Ferdinand, he had the presence of mind to produce a dinked finish that gave De Gea no chance.
The sight of Robin van Persie preparing to enter the fray moments later would almost certainly have given West Brom’s defence plenty of food for thought, but United levelled matters before the Dutchman even got onto the pitch.
Rooney's inswinging free-kick from the left-hand side deceived everyone in the box, finding the net without the need for a team-mate's touch.
Most inside Old Trafford would have expected the champions to cruise to victory after getting back on level terms, and introducing Van Persie, but the visitors rallied superbly and took the lead again in the 67th minute.
Berahino was the scorer for West Brom, the youngster lashing a beautifully weighted Amalfitano lay-off to the edge of the box beyond De Gea with his left foot.
West Brom defended brilliantly as the inevitable United push for an equaliser gained steam with the clock ticking down, but they had Marouane Fellaini's poor judgement to thank for avoiding conceding five minutes from time.
The Belgian pushed forward needlessly before Nani squared to provide a tap-in, with his celebrations cut short by the assistant referee's flag.
The visitors subsequently held out to claim a famous win, their first at Old Trafford in 34 years.
