Make a holiday rental property or holiday villa in Alentejo, Portugal your home away from home

Alentejo is one of the four main regions of Portugal, bordering the Algarve to the south. Known as Portugal’s bread basket, Alentejo is a huge, open area of countryside although the landscape does vary dramatically from the granite hills of the north east to the open plains of the south. Holiday villas in Alentejo are perfect for those wishing to truly relax, recuperate and recharge whilst on holiday, as the tourist crowds have not yet discovered Alentejo, which has one of the most blissfully peaceful way of life you can find!

Things to do on holiday in Alentejo, Portugal

The Parque Natural de Serra de Sao Mamede is a beautiful park, engulfing not only beautiful swathes of the country, but also a handful of atmospheric medieval villages. The Parque Natural do Vale Guadiana to the north is also well worth a visit from a holiday villa in Alentejo, especially for walking and to use the secluded, sandy beaches which line the west end of the park.

Alentejo is steeped in history from across the ages, with clear examples of Roman and Arab constructs, as well as dolmens, cromlechs and sturdy medieval castles. There are a huge range of impressive historic sights to see across the region, but the most dramatic have to be the Estremoz Castle in Pousada, the gigantic Elvas Aqueduct and Castle, Castelo de Vide or the remains of the Roman Temple in Evora.

Alentejo is also a great destination for quite beach holidays. An Alentejo property along the west coast of Alentejo around the town of Sines on either the Costa Dorada to the south or Costa da Gale to the north will provide some of the most authentic Portuguese beach holiday experiences available. The unspoilt, wild, sand beaches of the Atlantic are a favourite destination for surfers and windsurfers, who descend on holiday villas in Alentejo during the summer months. The many reservoirs which adorn this dry countryside were originally created to ensure water for residents, but now sailing, water skiing and windsurfing thrive on them.

Although a holiday villa in Alentejo is usually taken for a peaceful, relaxing break, you can get the adrenaline pumping around your body here. The countryside is ideally suited to mountain biking, and the skies above Alentejo are often dotted with hot air balloons and skydivers taking to the air for a combination of adrenaline and breath taking views.

The coast of Alentejo falls into the sub-region of Alentejo Litoral, so if you are looking for a beach holiday whilst in the region, a holiday villa in Alentejo Litoral is the perfect solution.

The three major cities in Alentejo are Evora, Portalegre and Beja.

Evora lies at the heart of the region and has been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the perfectly preserved town centre. It is often accredited with being the finest example of ‘golden age’ Portugal, with the ancient walls still protecting the many monuments from throughout the ages which can be found within, including the famous Diana’s Temple.

Portalegre is a region of Alentejo bordering Spain, with a long tradition of mystery and mythology. Dolmens adorn the landscape, situated between ancient manor houses and ancient battle fields. The delightful Serra de Sao Mamede is in the region, which is a perfect place to walk or cycle. The area is also a great destination for off road driving, horse riding and golf. The many dams and lakes are ideal for water sports, and there are two centres in the region, from which you can take lessons, hire equipment or try your hang at a large range of sports from a holiday villa in Alentejo.

Beja is one of the most unspoilt regions to take an Alenteja property. The architecture is delightfully graceful, and the countryside is open and peaceful.

Fernando was very helpful and prompt with his replies to our questions. Nice but quiet area so if you want to get out and about, you will need a car. Will hopefully stay here again.

Quiet and remote its ideal for relaxation. We were so surprised at the size of the place and how lovely it is, the photos don't do it justice. We would definitely return. Many thanks.
