Distinctive Portugal is a treasure. Diana and Sergio, the founders of Distinctive Portugal, gave us excellent information, insightful suggestions, top-notch website, high quality villas and staff, and attentive, thoughtful, caring service. The first trip that we booked with Distinctive Portugal was just the two of us. We had a remarkable pousada-based experience travelling by car through the Douro, Minho, and Alentejo, ending in fascinating Lisbon. This year our three young-adult children and some friends joined us for a 2 week stay in a villa, near Ponte de Lima. It is a wonderful stone home, tastefully restored in the old style. It is very private, with sunsets over the valley and elegant grounds. A few highlights of this trip were a UEFA semi-final match in the stunning, award-winning Braga stadium, delightful, traditional meals prepared by a local cook in our spacious villa, a trip to the lively Barcelos market, and several memorable fish restaurant meals in Viana do Castelo and Ponte de Lima. Directly behind our villa are rugged hills with wild horses and endless miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking. The gorgeous, wide Cabedelo beach in Viana do Castelo is just 30 minutes away. All of these varied experiences were made possible through our relationship with Distinctive Portugal - Diana and Sergio guided us expertly in response to our varied interests and wishes. We highly recommend Distinctive Portugal to anyone interested in designing an exciting, interesting and "best value for travel dollars" holiday experience.Kasia and George (Ontario, Canada) May 2011
