A Holidy for Our Blended Family

I usually have my secretary handle my travel arrangements, but this time I wanted to do it myself. This was a very special holiday trip for us, because it would be the first as a blended family. My new wife and I along with our four children had never taken a vacation together before, so I wanted to look at the luxury Cabo rentals myself and find one that would be perfect for all of us. It did not take me long to find it, much to my surprise.

When I showed my wife the six bedroom beach house I wanted to rent for the six of us, she was nearly speechless. She told me that she could not have picked out a more perfect one herself for all of us. The main thing is that we each have our own bedroom.

Autumn

During autumn, the north of Portugal can receive quite a bit of rain, but on the sunny southern coast it remains mostly fine, with only a few wet days a month. The highlight of an autumnal visit is the opportunity to combine some fantastic bird watching with your walking holiday. Portugal is home to many spectacular species of birds of prey which are a magnificent sight as they move down the coast along with other colourful migrating communities.

Winter

Even in winter, the spectacular Algarve region is popular with the Euro-tourist in search of some much-needed winter sun.

A warm current and temperate breeze ensures that, even though the evenings are cool, blue skies and plenty of sunshine during the day makes for a wonderful holiday respite. With cooler temperatures, some walking aficionados say that in fact, winter is the best time for a walking holiday in Portugal.
