The Silver Coast is located under an hour's drive north from the country's capital, Lisbon.
It remains one of the country's most beautiful regions offering a wealth of charming coastal towns and villages across a breath taking coastline that runs approximately 150 Km up towards the fishing town of Nazare.
An authentic slice of Portugal that has remained traditional, visitors and settlers arrive on the Silver Coast in search of the 'real Portugal'.
Flying into Lisbon from the UK will take around 2.5 hours then it's a pleasant drive (less than an hour) to the Silver Coast.
If driving isn't an option, there is a good hourly bus service from Sete Rios station or you could hop a taxi.
The silver coast offers a combination of both the Mediterranean and Atlantic climate, this means that winters in the Silver Coast are mild and summers are dry and hot.
Winters see an average temperature of 17°C, while summers offer a comfortable 27°C day time average.
Either way, you can expect to enjoy almost 275 days of sun shine each year.
