With historical hilltop towns, delicious regional cuisine, excellent wines and olive oil, a long, pristine and undeveloped coastline, protected National Parks, rural villages and cork forests to enjoy – the Alentejo might well be called the Tuscany of Portugal. This is our suggested itinerary with places to visit, but as car hire is included you are quite free to explore as you like.

The bustling city of Lisbon, the second oldest capital in Europe, and the quieter Alentejo region, still deserted, are both historically rich and enchanting. Known as the city of seven hills, Lisbon is full of museums, churches, squares and quaint cobbled streets waiting to be explored – there is something to suit all. The charismatic Alentejo is a gastronomic haven and a delight to visit. Boasting many hilltop towns, monasteries and castles – hardly touched by time; a wondrous unspoiled landscape and a relaxed pace of life, the Alentejo makes the perfect extension to a stay in Lisbon.

The Alentejo region of Portugal is blessed with impressive remains from megalithic and pagan cultures and the Romans and Moors have also left their mark. But it is the legacy of a period of great prosperity between the 15th and 18th centuries that created the magnificent historic buildings for which the region is famed. On this four-night break we have chosen two properties, both housed within a splendid historic structure. The first is the Pousada Castelo De Estremoz and the second is the Pousada Castelo De Alcacer.
