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.

JULY

July. Summer. The beach attracts. You are spoilt for choice: there are so many wonderful beaches nearby. Most are small, but there are some larger ones, like Malhão here. Most beaches are also guarded. The ocean remains dangerous.

Sometimes there is some luxury, like beach chairs for rent or a little restaurant. Other beaches are difficult to reach. Then you have to cross a narrow bridge or slide down a rope or a long staircase. Something for everyone. A day at the beach is never a bad thing.
