Planning to spend 2 weeks in Portugal with a toddler, first 2 weeks of July 2014. Thinking we could 2-3 days in Porto/Duoro Valley, 5 days in Lisbon and about 1 week in either Alentejo or Algarve staying at a 'homebase' on or near a beach and then driving around the region we pick. I read Alentejo is more rustic, local with nice beaches but I'm not sure if there are any beaches gentle enough for small children and if there are either resorts, pousadas or apartments on the beach with good restaurants around. Algarve, I read will be filled British and German partying tourists, so I'm afraid it won't be low-key enough for us, although I read Western parts of Algarve might suit. Any suggestions?
