Located in the heart of Lisbon, this über-swanky hotel delivers on every level: beautiful scenery, bags of culture, great food and a cracking beach.

It's also only a short walk from the hip Old Town, where you'll find a string of nonchalantly elegant bars and restaurants. Our favourite of these is the Restaurante 100 Maneiras where there's no menu, and plates change daily - just sit back and let the 10 course tasting dishes arrive. But also be sure to try the hotel's Varanda Restaurant overlooking the Eduardo VII Park, where the gin-tasting menu will take you from lunchtime to party time.

THE MOST ROMANTIC HONEYMOONS IN THE WORLD

No trip to Lisbon would be complete without gorging on the dreamy custard tarts known as Pastéis de nata - visit the Pastéis de Belém for some of the best, but be prepared for long queues.

After a day exploring, retreat to the ESPA Spa or, if you have energy to spare, the rooftop running track. There's no better vantage point for a Lisbon sunset.

WOW FACTOR: The hotel can book you on a vintage motorcycle tour of the city with your own personal guide. Helmets on and cameras at the ready!

GO: A double room costs from £285; fourseasons.com/lisbon. TAP Portugal (www.flytap.com) return flights start at £141.
