Have you always dreamed of being the princess of your own castle? Or you really think you should had born a king? We give you the opportunity to spend some time in a palace like the ones you only see in the movies, fall in love in the most romantic gardens you’ll ever see, and run out of breath with natural landscapes. Sounds good, doesn’t it? But we still have more… We are going to walk along the wonderful beaches of our coast and party hard in our capital city!
Get ready for a weekend with endless amounts of Portuguese charm and join us at:
