Portugal

Portugal

One day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted to do. Do it now!

- Paulo Coelho -

Being awarded several times with Leading Destination, Portugal is still mostly undiscovered for many. This is a destination that is very special to us, because we call it our home, this is where Vanessa and Jasper started their adventure with V&J. As our home we can say with certainty that nobody truly knows Portugal as we do!


Experience the charms and lively atmosphere of Lisbon, venture through the narrow-cobbled alleys and uncover hidden gems around every corner to end up in one of the beautiful miradouros looking over the city of the seven hills, discover the culinary highlights on exceptional locations - each with their own story about the heritage of their region, and at the end of the day settle at one of Lisbon’s pleasant bars where everybody comes together to enjoy a wonderful sunset with a sundowner. After a lovely stay in Lisbon, board the 26-meter Stardust of Mary, a sleek sports yacht docked in Cascais. With her spacious exterior, it makes her the perfect place to unwind and relax. Set sail on an unforgettable voyage along the coastlines to the Algarve. Be the first to discover the western coastlines and the Atlantic Ocean. Immerse yourself in the richness of colourful culture and outstanding adventures that awaits outside the capital.


Head to the Alentejo, Jasper Sigon’s favourite region, one of the best-preserved landscapes and one of the least populated regions of southern Europe. Its vast open country is home, both to tradition and contemporary culture, renewing itself as a region that it is global but not globalised. A welcoming and hospitable land recognised for its excellent food and wines, respect for environmental sustainability and the preservation of ancient traditions and customs. The sense of beauty is everywhere.


Venture north and explore the chaotic landscapes, peaks and the breathtaking views of Serra de Estrela with marked hiking trails, or the Paiva walkways to find the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the world. A little bit further north, the bespoke Douro Valley, marked by small valleys of exceptional terraced vineyards, bordered by olive trees, and supported by many kilometres of schist walls, houses a typical Mediterranean fauna and flora, and one of the world’s most fascinating architectural works, where the human force and the grandeur of nature are uniquely combined with the Douro River as a core identity factor.


Experience the Portuguese culture, grandeur and heritage on a unique adventure.
