My family and I are trying to figure out our Christmas break plans, and Portugal is on our list of places to visit. We are expats currently living outside of London, so are used to cold and gray days. We have two boys (14 and 11) who are generally great travelers and used to being kept busy on our trips. We will have a little over a week, and I was thinking of spending a few days in Lisbon and then spending some time in the Algarve. What is everyone's opinion of Portugal at the end of December/beginning of January? Is it worth going or is it too gloomy to enjoy? I appreciate any help and feedback. Thanks so much!!
