A visit to the Alentejo region is like stepping into the past, to a time before cities, where ages-old quiet rolling countrysides of wheat, olive trees, vineyards, and cork tree groves are the rule. Here the food, like the pace, is anything but fast, with tasty delicacies like aged cheeses, and ham produced from the black footed pigs that devour the acorns falling from the region’s oak trees. It's also the seat of the world's cork production, still harvested by hand at the same slow pace that's been followed for generations. We'll follow house rules and unwind at one luxurious hotel for the course of our vacation, guaranteed to put you where you want to be without a lot of work, and with a lot of relaxation. From delectable meals to Roman temples in towns like Evora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where city walls and ruins of Roman baths still remain, this is where time stands still, and the hustle, bustle and busyness of everyday life are long forgotten.
