Visit Alentejo to get a glimpse of traditional Portugal. Wander the slumbering streets with their whitewashed cottages and sample Alentejan cuisine to travel back in time. Its ancient cities like for example the picturesque hilltop village of Monsaraz are at their best when they wake up in the morning providing a breathtaking view over olives groves sprinkling in the landscape.
Why is Alentejo perfect for families?
Alentejo is the perfect place to slow down and align with nature. A family holiday to the unspoilt countryside and cobblestone villages of the Alentejo means discovering the wild side of Portugal, go hiking, camping, wild swimming or simply enjoying the gorgeous local food. Take a stroll through the villages of Evora and Monsaraz on a sunny afternoon and you will find a handful of restaurants and artisan shops like Merceria Gadanha Estremoz offering traditional Portuguese goods. Relax and enjoy the view over picturesque vineyards and magical monoliths or explore the area on foot or by bike.
