Portugal Life & Travel, the only UK magazine dedicated to Portugal, has just published its fourth issue. For the first time, this incorporates a new section, Madeira Life & Travel, making it a bumper publication.

There is far more to Portugal than the golden sandy beaches of the Algarve.  The country also has a fascinating culture, many heritage cities and towns and delightfully welcoming people. It has so much to offer, from great gastronomy to beautiful countryside and many outdoor activities for the whole family, all of which can be found no further than a two hours’ drive from an international airport – whether it be Faro in the south, Lisbon in the centre or Porto in the north.

The fourth edition of this informative magazine is now available

Published on line at www.portugal-life.net (just subscribe for free to see the full issue) and distributed in the UK through Foremost’s 185 golf clubs around the country, the magazine brings to life all that is good about Portugal and Madeira.  In this edition there are features about bird watching in the Alentejo, boating on Lake Alqueva, walking the Madeiran levadas or find out all about the delicious Vinho Verde wines.

Property and golf

The issue also includes an interview with Dra. Cecilia Meireles, the young and energetic new Secretary of State for Tourism, in which she describes her vision for tourism in Portugal in the years to come, Michael Blandy explains his family’s long involvement for Madeira, and there is plenty to absorb on property and golf.
