Find your dream tour!
We thoroughly enjoyed our walking holiday in Alentejo. The accommodation was excellent, particularly the Convent and Guest House in Monsaraz. The farm was very sociable, sharing dinner together although the food not as good as elsewhere on the tour: cooked elsewhere and brought in.
The staff were very helpful. The notes and GPS good.
Our fellow travellers found an excellent place for a final meal, Michelin quality standard, which I’d thoroughly recommend. Herdade do Esporao. Delicious!
A couple of the walks could be modified to avoid walking uphill alongside cars eg end of Megalithic Monuments walk and climb to Monsaraz.
I found this a personal way to explore Alentejo, combining walking with good food and wine and the charm of the Portuguese.
Excellent Alentejo walk
We did the self-guided Alentejo walking tour, which we booked through Portugall Walks. It was beautiful landscape, and a well-supported tour. We really enjoyed our lodging on a farm, and an ex-convento. The meals at both places, especially the farm (which is also the office for Turaventur) were exceptional. The staff we worked with were really helpful and supportive. Joana greeted us and gave us the gpx files to download on our phones; the GPS tracks matched well with the detailed directions they gave us. She even helped me get to a dentist when I had a dental isssue, and then modified our walk that day so we could still hike in the afternoon. I highly recommend this company!
