Walk, look and eat like a Portuguese
fisherman on the coast
What does it mean to be on the coastline of Alentejo? Discover a wild, scrubby expanse of low hills and wave-pounded cliffs. There is an unnerving stillness to the landscape, but that stillness ends abruptly at the Atlantic Ocean. This program will take you through a remarkable trail along the south coast of the country, where you discover autochthone nature, fishing villages and wonderful beaches. To travel here is to step back in time 40 or 50 years. Life rolls along at a treacly pace, the simplicity and quietness of the lifestyle make us want to stay here forever.

After a delicious breakfast, another brilliant day of shaped cliffs, desert beaches and unforgettable golden colors.
