We will be in Portugal August 5-13. We are hoping to spend a few nights in the Algarve and a few nights in Lisbon. We have a teenage boy(15) and a teenage girl(16). I was wondering what towns are good to stay at in Algarve? I was thinking Albufeira or Lagos. I would like somewhere on or near the beach. Quaint with restaurants and shops nearby. Will we be able to drive to other towns such as Sagres, Tavira, or will it be too crowded?
For Lisbon, I was wondering what part of town to stay in?
We are thinking 3-4 nights in Algarve and then 3-4 nights in Lisbon. I would like to see Sintra and Obidos. Wondering if we should stop by Estoril and Cascais since we will have already seen the Algarve.
thank you so much for your assistance.
