Alentejo

Alentejo, Portugal. Unlike Portugal’s famous Algarve, you’re unlikely to have scrolled through your friend’s holiday snaps, spotted cheap holiday packages or perhaps even heard of Alentejo! So you probably didn’t know that it is home to some of Europe’s best beaches, cuisine and wine…

The little known Alentejo has its own unique unspoiled and wild beauty. The name literally means “land beyond the Tagus” in Portugal, so titled as the region is separated from Lisbon by the Tagus River. The area is sparsely inhabited, being home to just 7% of Portugal’s population even though it covers an entire third of its surface area! Far from the golden sandy beaches of the Algarve, here you can expect rugged dunes, cliffs, and wild waves. In the absence of sunbathers, you’ll find keen surfers braving the cold Atlantic sea and adventurous families rock-pool hopping their way along the coastline.

My competition today gives you the chance to win a stay in Évora, the region’s capital. TAP Portugal sponsors your return flights to Lisbon and Turismo do Alentejo provides your 3-night stay in a 4* or 5* Hotel in Évora.
It’s an elegant, walled town in the heart of Atentejo’s wine country. There are over 300 wine producers in the region, and many beautiful vineyards to be explored. Vineyards are some of the best places to grab a bite to eat at a local eatery, but the town of Évora is also renowned for its sophisticated dishes.

Alentejo’s cuisine was born from a frugal way of living, and to this day it remains simple and rustic. Nothing is ever allowed to go to waste, for example, stale bread is used in migas (crumbs with wild asparagus) or to thicken up açorda, a traditional soup flavoured with lots of coriander. Other ingredients are grown and produced locally, such as fruity tomatoes, olive oil and black Iberico pork, from the black-footed pigs that are hand-reared there.

So if exploring untamed landscapes, kayaking with the Atlantic breeze behind you and sampling Portuguese specialities in traditional taverns sounds right up your street, then enter our competition now!
