There is history and culture, with many UNESCO sites, a lively art and music scene, thermal baths and wellbeing centres along with great dining.
Our second winner will be heading to the Algarve with a partner to enjoy a wonderful week in the Algarve staying at one of nine Luna Hotels & Resorts, all replete with excellent amenities. The Algarve is home to some of Europe's most beautiful beaches and sports facilities, with excellent restaurants too, all in a glorious climate.
