Alentejo

Alentejo is the least populated region of Portugal. This vast, gently undulated landscape, with a sparse vegetation of mostly cork oaks and olive trees,  and occasional quinta or ruin atop a hill resembles savannah,  is a place to see when discovering Portugal. The summers are usually very hot but spring and late summer would be an ideal time to visit the in-land Alentejo. Many Adegas (cellars) also run boutique hotels, so you can take part of the wine harvest, or taste the flavours of their local produce.

The west consists of a long and much cooler coastline, with some of the most beautiful scenery and beaches in Europe, lined with cliffs and endless sand.
