Family Holidays in Portugal



Portugal is a veritable playground for families, particularly those with young children, babies and toddlers. Holidays here offer all the diversity that you and your children could wish for: from sight-seeing around Portuguese historic cities and enchanting villages to enjoying the many beautiful beaches along Portugal's glorious coastline.

 

Reasons to Choose Portugal for a Family Holiday

  • The Weather – Portugal - and the Algarve in particular – has one of the most stable climates in the world, with regular sunshine and year-round warm temperatures, rarely dipping below 15C even in winter
  • Children are welcome - Family is all important to Portuguese people and so you'll find that tots are welcomed and well catered for in all of Portugal's beautiful destinations.
  • The stunning beaches – Portugal has just under 600 miles of coastline, much of which is made up of breath-taking beaches with golden sands and shallow waters. A particularly stunning example in The Silver Coast, just north of Lisbon, and the family favourite Algarve region.
  • A slower pace of life – Perhaps it’s the effect of the sun but life here moves at an altogether more relaxed pace. And it’s catching! Spend a couple of days here and you’ll start to adjust. 
  • Culture, history, seafood all just a short flight away – Portugal is culturally-rich with a fascinating maritime history, beautiful cities and quaint villages. It's also just a short flight away from London, Birmingham and Manchester, making it easy to travel to with babies and toddlers.

 

Where is the Best Place in Portugal to go for a Family Holiday?

The Algarve – This is the southern region of Portugal and is a well-loved family holiday destination with glorious weather, miles of sandy beaches, pretty villages, historic castle towns and lots of family activities. It's also easy to access from Faro airport.
The Silver Coast – Officially called Costa de Prata, the Silver Coast runs up the Western edge of Portugal from the capital city Lisbon. This area is considered to be one of Portugal's 'hidden gems' with stunning beaches and fantastic historical sightseeing opportunities.

  Fantastic property, beautifully decorated and obviously recently refurbished with care and attention!

Outside of the resort everything is within a short drive 5 -10 minute drive, very much geared towards families and easy to return back home for a quieter evening with the children safely in bed.

  We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely, spacious villa. The pool fence gave us peace of mind with 2 little ones. We hardly left the villa apart from a trip to the great beach at Vale de Lobo and a couple of meals out in lovely restaurants.

  My wife, myself and 10 month old daughter spent 4 nights here. After the first night we already regretted not booking a longer stay. There isn't much that I could add to all of the other glowing reviews except that they are correct and that this is one of the best places that we have ever stayed. Our daughter felt that "this was about her" immediately upon arrival as all of the staff are so kid-focused and friendly. After a long journey from Western Canada this was such a welcome retreat. We will certainly be staying here again once our daughter is old enough to enjoy some of the many activities they provide for kids. The Martinhal team has thought of absolutely everything a family could possibly need to have a relaxing and enjoyable stay with a young family.

  They really have thought of everything families could wish for at Martinhal resort. The resort is situated right next to a lovely secluded beach and within a short drive to some great surfing beaches. The resort is very well laid out with playgrounds located right next to all the main eateries so that the kids can play while the parents can watch them from the comfort of their table! The design of the complex is very sympathetic to the local environment and although it is a big resort it doesn't feel oppressive at all. As we travelled over the Easter break there was an extensive program of activities on offer for the kids from water sports to soccer to tennis (at additional cost), cinema club as well as a really well run kids club.

  I chose the Martinhal Beach Resort on the strength of numerous travel reviews. My view is consistent with the majority of travellers on this site - this is a fantastic family resort, in a wonderful location with excellent facilities. I spent a week here in June 2015 with my 4yr old son and 74yr old mother - they both absolutely loved it. For me, what I remember most was the friendliness and warmth of the staff at the resort and the people of Portugal in general. The world is such a big and beautiful place, but I'm tempted to return here with my son now aged 5 :-)

  This is a lovely area of Portugal. You do need a car to get about, but can then visit beaches and other towns. It's very quiet in comparison to 'touristy' areas, great food, and excellent coffee wherever you are.
