Not sure where to stay in Portugal? This page gives you quick links to my Portugal accommodation guides to help you choose the best place for you.

The articles include which locations to use as a base in different parts of the country, from towns to specific neighbourhoods of larger cities. I’ve also suggested hotels, apartments and guesthouses in specific destinations, at different price points and styles.

While some towns and cities in Portugal have an entire article dedicated to helping you choose the best area and accommodation, my tips on where to stay for smaller places are often tucked away at the end of Things To Do In XYZ articles.

Most of the links within these Portugal accommodation guides are to, which is always my first choice for finding and reserving rooms. The information is clear and easy to find, unlike on many hotel websites, and they provide information about sustainability practices in place.

The reviews are verified, by people who have actually stayed in the accommodations, and the cancelation policy and price match promise are fantastic.

Make it easy to use the special links with my partner code by bookmarking it for future use, wherever you’re travelling.

Options for longer stays

If you’re considering a longer stay in Portugal, for example checking out a specific area or town before re-locating there, I recommend Flatio. They’re a rental housing platform offering hand-picked, mostly deposit-free, and reasonably priced accommodations in over 300 destinations, mainly in Europe.

What sets Flatio apart from similar platforms is that it offers lawyer-verified, legally binding lease agreements that can be used as proof of address and for visa purposes.
