Because Friday is spring, I want to get away for a long weekend in the sun.
I would like to fly to Portugal at Monte Da Vilarinha. Set on a hill between Alentejo and the Natural Park of the Vicentine Coast, this lost paradise offers an incredible view of the valley, shaded terraces, cosy rest beds, a fresh swimming pool, barbecues available under the olive trees, mountain bikes to explore the Algarve and meal baskets for picnics on the beach.
On Saturday, I will have breakfast in Carrapateira, the new Comporta. I dream of discovering the cobbled streets of this small all-white village where time seems to have stopped (a little).
On Sunday, I will settle on the wild beach of Bordeira: 3km of fine sand and huge dunes. After my Sunday nap, I will watch my husband take a surf lesson and my children wade through the natural lagoon…
And, on Monday, I will extend my stay…..
