The south of Portugal is much more than just the holiday resorts along the Algarve coastline.
South of the Tagus river, the open, ample landscapes of the Alentejo are peppered with numerous cork-oaks and olive trees, while a few whitewashed houses stand on the hills. The inner Alentejo and Algarve are Portugal’s most deserted and less known regions yet very rich in old traditions and landmarks left by the Moors. Inland, the castles and fortresses are a testimony of past battles and old rivalries, but along the Atlantic coastline, deserted beaches stretching as far as the eye can see, framed by golden cliffs will bring back the memories of the great Portuguese explorers from the past…
In the south of Portugal, one can still appreciate the rich heritage left by the Moors who inhabited these lands for more than five centuries and some villages will even make visitors feel as if they were being transported to a town somewhere in northern Africa. Here, time passes slowly following the rhythm of the land itself, so this trip will give travellers a unique opportunity to switch off from their busy agendas, forget about their watches and enjoy a slower pace of life.
Accommodation on this trip will be in selected quality campsites and a special B&B, allowing the enjoyment of the local environments and culture, at a time of the year when nature bursts into life with magnificent colours!
