Alejento - Portugal's largest region, covering a third of the country - is a dreamscape of undulating honey-coloured plains and wonderfully wild coastlines topped off with a generous sprinkling of whimsical, whitewashed villages. Alentejo holidays are all about enjoying unspoiled nature, indulging in afternoon naps in the dappled shade of olive trees and topping on plenty of charming culture... the ingredients that all the best getaways are made of. If that's not enough, Alentejo also has a rich historical and archaeological heritage to match its landscapes. From the ‘museum city’ of Evora that
boasts a collection of majestic medieval and Renaissance palaces meriting UNESCO World Heritage Site status, to the Roman ruins of Mirobriga, Alentejo is teeming with relics of the past. But don't forget there's also a killer coastline of unspoiled beaches to explore. Among the miles of deserted beaches is the hip town of Comporta, Portugal's now not-so-secret haven for Lisbon's beautiful people, and other small coastal and inland towns also getting in on the boho/surf act. All in all Alentejo is a deliciously diverse Portuguese paradise just waiting to be explored.
