There has been an awful lot of interest in our 2023 Portugal holiday, even before we had finalised all the costs that we thought we had better get our skates on and open it for booking.
As ever we stay at the Dom Jose Hotel in Quarteira (airport is Faro) right on the sea front in this splendid hotel. All rooms are sea view, on a half board basis, plus for our group, wine with dinner and afternoon tea/coffee and biscuits included!!
The cost of your holiday also includes two embark2 exclusive excursions –
- A wine tour with a chance to sample up to four wines, plus tapas. The Quinta Tor Winery produces some excellent white and red wines. Included in your visit will be a short visit to the vineyard, sample of up to 4 “national” wines and tapas. For the wine connoisseurs, why not upgrade your visit to enjoy up to four of the vineyards excellent selection of red wines?
- A tour of the Ria Formosa by boat. The island of Ilha Deserta is a deserted island on the Ria Formosa, though it does boast a restaurant and where we will have lunch (not included) In total, we will visit four of the islands that make up the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Our guide will provide us with a commentary and tell us more about the habitat of each island we visit. Allow 4/5 hours for our excursion.
New for 2023 – extend your stay. Please ask us for prices for 10 and 14 night stays. However, please note that all excursions and other activities will take place within the first week of your holiday. Upgrades to superior rooms available, though don’t leave it too late, they are in high demand.
You arrange your flights, and we will arrange the airport transfers (extra) in October.
