The Alentejo region has the last unspoiled stretch of the Atlantic Ocean coast in all of southern Europe. The coast is largely unknown to visitors whose bucket list for Portugal is generally the famed cities of Lisbon and Porto, and the Algarve to the south, but this quickly changing. Among the blooming flower beds, starry skies, cork oak forests, soaring castles and windswept beaches, the Alentejo has a considerable amount to offer. Catavino can help you cycle along vast stretches of the Rota Vicentina, horseback ride through the beautiful forest of the “Serra de Grândola," balloon over the vast Alentejo plains, birdwatch over 240 species in the Santo Andre nature preserve, stargaze near Lake Alqueva, and join a yoga retreat in the heart of the region. Let us help you find unique experiences that are tailored to your needs!

Inspiration for your next trip:

  • Taste amphora (talha) wines at a family-owned winery
  • Savor a farm-to-table experience in Evora
  • Enjoy a privately catered picnic among cork oak forests
  • Participate at a private atelier where they handcraft Portuguese tiles
  • Tour Roman ruins with a local historian
