Sunvil Discovery has launched its 2012 real Portugal & Madeira brochure offering a selection of accommodation options and flexible itineraries to the lesser-known areas.

The operator has announced that its exclusive flight to Beja in the heart of the Alentejo will continue this year, departing from Heathrow once a week. Following the success of the flight and an expanded Alentejo programme last year, a new section detailing what to do and see in the region is now featured.

New properties include manor house Casa do Sezim, set in its own vineyard just outside Guimaraes, European Capital of Culture for 2012, and the five-star Onyria Marinha Edition Hotel & Thalasso near Cascais, complete with golf course that offers views over the Atlantic and Sintra mountain range.

The lead-in price is from £490 per person based on two sharing at the Casa da Eira in Vila Nova de Milfontes on the coast of the Alentejo. The price includes flights, transfers and seven nights’ breakfast accommodation.
