3 Portuguese Wedding Venues Off The Beaten Path To Boomark Now

Just a few miles East of Tavira in the centre of the Algarve, you'll find Forte de São João Cabanas tucked away in the lush nature of the Ria Fermosa lagoon. But Forte de São João is so much more than an intimate boutique hotel with amazing views.

Lost between sky and sea, with its imposing walls, it's protected from the touristic frenzy in the Algarve during the summer. Celebrate your intimate ceremony in the secluded and private courtyard with your friends and family. With a drink in hand, take a short walk around the quinta and find yourself at the back for your wedding cocktails overlooking the ocean. While you enjoy the company of your guests, the staff sets up your al-fresco dinner and your night is ready to begin.
