  • Young at Heart: 3 Holiday Must Dos For The Over 55s

    With The Pousadas of Portugal offering the fantastic Golden Age promotion, it’s not surprising that more and more people over the age of 50 are visiting Portugal each year. Our promotion offers up to 10% off the best available rate for those who have at least one guest aged 55 or over.

    We know the offer is golden, but why choose Portugal as your next holiday? Here are just 3 activities for the over 55s to enjoy whilst in Portugal.


    Historical Tour of the Algarve

    If you’re staying at one of our Pousadas in the Algarve and only have time to do one trip – this full day tour is perfect for those who are history buffs. The tour takes up the whole day and involves visiting different places and discovering the history and culture of the Algarve.

    You’ll visit Silves – a historical city which dates back to the Bronze Age. Here you will be fascinated by the Moorish Castle and Gothic cathedral. The next stop takes you to Lagos, the previous home of Prince Henry the Navigator and the slave market. The fishing village of Sagres is last on the tour, where you will visit the lighthouse of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.

    It gets you out of the hotel for a day, and lunch is usually included!

    Bird Watching in the Waters of Ria Formosa

    Love bird watching or find it fascinating? Whilst in Portugal, you can spend the day bird watching whilst enjoying the beautiful waters of Ria Formosa. In what is considered as being a bird watcher’s paradise, your trip will involve taking a trip through the magnificent wetlands to spot birds such as the White Stork and the Spoonbill. It gives you the chance to get up close to these stunning birds, without actually disturbing or distracting them.

    You’ll have the guidance of a nature specialist throughout the boat tour, who will make sure that you don’t miss out on seeing anything important!
