Walking in Portugal

All you need for your walks in this beautiful, virgin part of the Alentejo is a pair of good shoes, a cap, a rucksack containing a bottle of water, a camera, binoculars and some food. Depending on the weather, a sweater or a rain jacket might come in handy. That’s all. From the Monte do Casarão you can walk forever. Take to the hills from the doorstep of your holiday home, from your own mountain.

The ultimate hiking area

We have plotted various walking tours, but with your GPS or some explanation on our part, you can’t really lose your way. If you like, we’ll act as guides, in which case we’ll take the small roads that haven’t been signposted.
The Alentejo is the ultimate hiking area anyway. We can supply route maps to various longer or shorter walks.

Rota Vicentina

Early in 2012, the Rota Vicentina was added: a 300-kilometre footpath, part of which follows the craggy coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The route has evoked only enthusiastic responses. And that is totally justified.

PAINTINGWEEK

Twice a year- once in spring and once in autumn - Monte do Casarão organizes a painting week. The course is for beginners and advanced students. You can paint or sketch using any technique and any materials you like. The Dutch Jenny Helder will support and coach the students during both art weeks.

Painting weeks in 2019:

April 11 - April 18

October 3 - October 10

DECEMBER

 

December. Month of cheerfulness and fun, month of family, parties and presents. And of pops and firecrackers and roman candles and some heavier elements. In the Netherlands at least.
Not here in Portugal. New Year´s eve, than there are pops and cracks. Controlled pops. Then there are fireworks everywhere, for example in Zambujeira do Mar.
You get value for money. You can enjoy fireworks twice. You see the fireworks in the sky and their reflections in the ocean, a spectacular and fascinating sight.
