Europe, Portugal

An immense golden region of rolling plains, white lime washed houses and monuments that testify to the long presence of human life, the Alentejo is a land that must be discovered slowly. Here, there is always a landscape to be contemplated; a secret place to be visited; a new flavour to be discovered. In the plains, the wheat fields quiver in the wind and nestled amidst the olive groves are small villages, newly restored for rural tourism, where all visitors are welcomed with open arms.

The local gastronomic delights compete against one another: the cheeses of Serpa, Évora and Nisa, the local wines and bread, the typical regional dishes perfumed with the herbs and spices from the fields and the divine sweet dishes based on traditional monastic recipes, which are like pieces of heaven that one has been allowed to taste on earth.

The seaside of Alentejo is also among our favourites. Competing with the Algarve in fame and quality it is however quite distinct. Here the beaches are wider, the water is cooler (you must remember it is the Atlantic Ocean) and the sea is not as calm (making it good not only for a swim but also for water activities like surf, windsurf, kite surf and others). It is also more secluded so you will not find as many people!
