Reasons abound in a country of myriad attractions ranging from quaint authentic villages to mesmerizing cities and endless coastal beaches and, last but not least, the quasi-legendary local hospitality.
The LUXE team wanted to introduce you to this special country through the words of someone who knows it from whiten and could describe it to us the way one talks about an old friend. The name of Carlos Ferreira immediately came to mind. For the past twenty years, the owner of Ferreira group of restaurants has been a true ambassador for Portugal by sharing his passion for the country’s gastronomy and culture with Quebecers. With typical generosity, he agreed to share the best adresses and his dining, hospitality, and activity favorites with our readers.
