We like to call the Alentejo the gastronomic soul of Portugal. Why? Because this little-known region produces a wonderful array of regional delicacies and rustic dishes, from sheep’s milk cheeses, acorn liqueur and organic asparagus, to Alentejo black pork, chestnut specialities and egg-based desserts. It’s known as the breadbasket of Portugal, holds food festivals all year round and produces almost half of Portugal’s wine. Our proposed 7-night fly-drive itinerary provides access to the hilltop owns, protected Natural Parks, rural villages, cork forests and coastal communities of the Alentejo; each district with its own distinct food specialties. An information booklet will be provided to all guests travelling to the Alentejo, which lists some of our favourite food outlets in the region.

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.
