Sunvil Discovery has issued its 2013 real Portugal & Madeira brochure, featuring handpicked accommodation and flexible itineraries to the lesser-known areas.
New winter and spring short breaks are offered in the Alentejo region, including the recently-waymarked coastal Rota Vicentina walking trail plus a ‘Pousadas of the Alentejo’ fly/drive from the coast in the west to the mountain ranges close to the Spanish border in the east. Other new itineraries include ‘A Luxurious Break on the Lisbon Coast’ and ‘Madeira: The Pearl of the Atlantic’.
As examples of prices, a seven-night Explore Northern Portugal by train option takes in Porto, Viana do Castelo and Guimaraes, with prices leading in at £867 per person including breakfast accomoodation, flights and transfers, while a seven-night Madeira: The pearl of the Atlantic offers a year-round three-centre itinerary, and leads in at £710 per person including breakfast accommodation, flights, transfers and five days' car hire. Optional excursions include visits to tropical gardens and Madeira’s Laurissilva Forest and Natural Park, recognised by UNESCO, and a hillside descent by toboggan.
