With its gaze fixed westward on the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal is a paradise for a beach holiday. The cosy, small-scale coastal towns move at a pleasant rhythm. Conviviality is essential to the Portuguese way of life, and I find that staying at a cosy B&B is often the best to surrender completely to this mode.
A Bed & Breakfast generally has a small-scale character. There are often only a few rooms that are tastefully decorated. The owner and staff pay a lot of attention to you as a guest. Don't forget to ask the owner for tips on what to do in the area. With these tips, you can really experience authentic Portugal.
Breakfast is also a very important part of the experience at a B&B in Portugal. Of course, it's already in the name! The owners serve you something delicious here every morning. Local, artisanal delicacies, fresh bread, jam made from figs from the garden… delicious! In Portugal, I was once treated to a healthy breakfast filled with fruit, granola, and freshly baked toast with avocado every morning. The sweet owner also served a different freshly squeezed juice every day for the necessary vitamins. What a treat!
The charming Bed & Breakfasts in Portugal that I have chosen to share with you are often in a rustic location.

In the south of Portugal, the Algarve, the parchment-colored rocks wallow in the warm sunlight. In between are small sandy beaches and enticing light blue water. Did you know that many Portuguese often choose the Algarve as a holiday destination themselves? Not surprising, because it is so incredibly beautiful!
Moreover, the Bed and Breakfasts in Portugal that I visited are often located in unique villages. If you ask me to describe Costa de Lisboa in one word? Exciting! That became clear when I went exploring with my friend Claire. We set out to see century-old buildings, unique towns with winding streets, and special churches. You will also find countless romantic Bed & Breakfasts near Lisbon.
Portuguese cuisine enchants me! So I settled in Northern Portugal with a well-filled stomach on the terrace of my B&B. And then the restaurants... It's no surprise that I was able to try so many culinary highlights here on the Costa Verde. The wines from this area complement every meal!
My places in Madeira are wonderfully away from the crowd, typical of a chambre d'hôte in Portugal. On a small beach outside the town, not far from my B&B, I took a dip in the Mediterranean Sea. I even took my first diving lesson here! And don't forget the swimming pool at a B&B! A refreshing dive into the pool is always a lovely way to start the day.
You probably noticed, I really love Portugal, but I'm not the only one! Over the years, many Dutch people have gone to this beautiful country. They have established nice places to settle there themselves and to let others enjoy the beauty of this destination. A number of these Dutch owners have started a B&B in Portugal and I consider myself fortunate to have been able to add them to my offer.
Now it's up to you to discover this beautiful destination during a holiday in a Bed and Breakfast! Which Portuguese destination will you discover?
