Sight-seeing, cultural walking and wandering has my heart. I may be a stereotypical millennial cliché, just traipsing around the same old hipster area as everybody else but I love it. Which is why I’d *usually* always opt for a city break. However.. a big however. This year I went back to Portugal with my family and had ~the~ most relaxing week of the year (so far.)
After taking a few hours to actually locate our villa, we arrived and my fears of not seeing a spectacular building (I’m not an architect or anything but I really appreciate a good building) was no longer present as it was heavenly inside and out. From the modern décor, a balcony with a sea view to the tennis courts- it had ~everything~.
We stayed -just- outside of our usual destination Carvoeiro, but still ventured into the town each night.
I spent most of the days laying flat sunning on a lounger, flicking flying beetles that landed on us, having dips in the pool, watching Portuguese Netflix from my walk in shower and eating my body weight in fish for dinner. We also had a mini golf tournament on our putting green- which reminds me we never actually finished it. As well as, a walk on the cliffs/climbing rocks whilst wearing a mini skirt and espadrilles. It was the ultimate relaxation break (even though I feel like I now need another one) but at least the sun is starting to make an appearance in England.
