Aromas and flavors at the rhythm of the plain

Alentejo | 5 days

These plains have cork and olive trees until the eyes lose sight, wheat fields that curl with the wind in the spring time, whitewashed houses, hot sun to sweeten the grapes and millions of stars splashing the sky at night. Inhale all the beauty of Alentejo and relax: here time goes by slowly.
Arrival at the hotel and time at leisure to discover and enjoy the hotel and the wonderful natural landscape. For dinner, a delicious enogastronomic experience is waiting for you at the hotel restaurant. Accommodation.
Breakfast and morning at leisure. We suggest a trip to the medieval town of Monsaraz to see the walls and the castle and enjoy the splendid views to the great lake of Alqueva (the Alqueva dam is also called "great lake" since it is the largest artificial lake in Europe). In the afternoon, get ready to roll up your sleeves and learn how to make artisanal Alentejo's Bread or the unique Olive Oil Cake typical of the region, in a very special workshop. At sunset, a picnic filled with traditional local products and the hotel's own production will be served on the lakeside of the estate. Inhale all the beauty that surrounds you and relax. After all, time here goes by slowly. Accommodation.
After breakfast at the hotel, departure to the World Heritage city of Évora. Installation at the hotel. In the afternoon we will discover the beautiful corners of the historical center of the charming and ancient Évora, the current economic and administrative center of the Alentejo region, on a walking tour that slowly will lead you to Giraldo Square, the Cathedral, the Roman Temple, the Chapel of Bones and other places of historical and cultural interest. In the end, a tasting of Alentejo wines to restore energies awaits you. Accommodation.
Breakfast and day at leisure. Tonight's dinner will be in a restaurant that keeps the essence of the cuisine of this region but with an amazing twist. Top quality local ingredients are chosen according to the seasons and transformed into a symphony of aromas and flavors harmonized with local wines. Return to the hotel and accommodation.
Breakfast at the hotel and end of our services. Thank you for traveling with us!
