Alentejo is probably Portugal’s most unspoilt and untouched region but definitely the largest. The Alentejo is a truly unique landscape, starting at the Comporta coastline, where beaches stretch for miles and going inland transforms to miles of vines and farms producing cork.

The coastline is expansive and although it can get busy, there are ways to get away from the crowds and discover the Algarve’s authentic side.

Lisbon is the country’s capital, brimming with hustle and bustle and located on the coast. You can while your time away café hopping and noseying around neighbourhoods – Bairro Alto being our favourite.
