Portugal – July 2009 (Part 1)
We spent our honeymoon in Portugal, combing a few days in Lisbon, followed by a week in the Algarve.
We stayed just outside Lisbon in Cascais at the Grande Real Villa Italia Hotel & Spa (http://www.granderealvillaitaliahotel.com) which was fantastic.
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great for the few days we were there. We decided to spend the afternoon in Sintra which was gorgeous. After a few hours admiring the various palaces, we decided to check out the beach.
Praia da Ursa
Traveling back down the N247 from Sintra to Cascais we paid a visit to Praia da Ursa. Unfortunately the weather was poor and very windy so we gave it a miss. The photos below show how beautiful it is though! Oh well, maybe next time!
