Advice: Place Lisbon or South for 6 weeks?

Hi, we are Canadians from Montreal who currently are in Berlin. My wife who is a scientist is waiting on a position in Brussels which may only be finalized in mid January.

Our thought is to come to Portugal until then or maybe to the end of January.

We can use advice though. The Internet seems to suggest we go to the Algarve. Obviously weather is a factor in winter but we were wondering if we should just come to Lisbon.

We are trying to be economical pending my wife's job, so where would we get the most, experience the most etc. Protected content

The romantic notion is a small village with only Portuguese, but maybe that would be too isolating. The other romantic notion is to experience Lisbon.

Any thoughts would be welcome.

Many thanks for a quick reply. We're trying to figure this

All the best,
