With summer approaching, it seems that everyone - from working parents to recently graduated young adults - is looking to plan their next adventure. While the waffles in Belgium or pizza in New York may be enticing, it may be time to look at the western most country in Europe: Portugal. Portugal, home of Cristiano Ronaldo and the Boom Festival, holds an allure for all ages alike. And the country’s home airline TAP is working to offer affordable routes from various locations (including a roundtrip ticket from NY for only 503 USD). So, now that you’re ready to cross Portugal off your bucket list, check out some of the best VRBO accommodations in Portugal and be sure to book soon before they’re all gone!
