Region:

The vast Alentejo, stretching to Portugal's southwestern coast, is still off the radar for many travelers. This intriguing rural region is like a trip back in time. The diverse terrain holds olive groves and vineyards, quaint villages, flower-filled meadows and forests.
The Alentejo is best known for its hardy red wines made from a unique combination of indigenous varietals and in 2014 the region was named "World Best Wine Region to Visit" by the USA TODAY from among 20 worthy nominees.
The food in Alentejo is rustic and authentic, taking full advantage of the agrarian lifestyle in the area. You won't find a developed coastline of hotels; instead Alentejo's beaches - considered some of the most dramatic and beautiful in Europe - require visitors to seek out lodging in independent guest houses. The Alentejo is like a trip back in time for wine lovers. The Faro and Lisbon airports are each less than two hours away.
The region is a perfect alternative holiday destination, ideal to embrace the culture and rich history one of the earliest inhabited places in Europe. This region occupies a third of the total area of Portugal and it is known as the gastronomic soul of this country. Inhabited in the past by Visigods, Lusitans, Romans and Arabs (just to name a few) the human presence and existence of relevant monuments dates back to the early stone age and megalithic period. The Mediterranean forest has proved to be a wonderful scenario to be discovered by the newest tourism routes; this is land of the most exquisite winery, a place definitely touched by the slow passage of time, inspiring craftsman working on pottery, woods and cork products.

In Elvas, you shall visit conspicuous buildings such as the Fort of Nossa Senhora da Graça, the centenary aqueduct of Amoreira and the city castle. Nearby you'll also find unlimited places of interest to visit and a wide range of activities to do related with local lifestyle: trail through the oak forest by bike, visit cork production facilities, taste the better wines in the region by the beautiful centenary vineyards in both modern and classic wineries of Alentejo (a winery region of excellence), have a taste of the most diverse gastronomy surrounded by the essence of ancient medieval sites, tour to the castles of Jorumenha, Elvas, Estremoz or Evoramonte. Visit the royal palace in Vila Viçosa or the UNESCO heritage city of Évora with its unique Chapel of Bones, the majestic city cathedral or the two thousand years old Roman temple which beautifully crowns the city hearth.
The Spanish town of Merida with its Roman theatre and museum is just 60 km away and the history city of Cáceres is only 90 km away!

The local activities: guided tours with wine tastings to www.jportugalramos.com and www.donamaria.pt, cycling trals, horse riding, local museums and monuments. Watersports and tours in Alqueva (the biggest artificial lake in Europe). This region is outstandingly rich in cultural, historical and archeological heritage. Don't miss the megalithic monuments like dolmens and cromlechs, nor the roman ruins, churches, palaces and castles to visit. We recommend a visit to the Elvas walls, fort of Graça, fort of Santa Luzia the military museum, the Vila Viçosa Palace and its Castle, and the castles of Ouguela, Campo Maior, Juromenha, Alandroal & Teresa.

For the golfers, recommended courses nearby:
- Ammaia Golf Course (Marväo) 60 km.
- Golf del Guadiana (Badajoz - Spain) 30 km.

For horse riding lovers, there are a few riding schools in the region:
- Centro Hípico Elshadai, Elvas – 3 km from villa.
- Centro Equestre y Pony Club, Badajoz (Spain).

Recommended restaurants: in Elvas, Ti Catarina, and in Estremoz, Mercearia Gadanho , São Rosa & A Cadeia.
The Alentejo is one of the few regions in Europe where it's still possible to find wild parts of natural beauty different from any other region of Europe!
