With the «Alentejo Discovery» tour our aim is that you combine your wonderful stay at two very charming guest houses, in farms, with the walking discovery of the ever surprising Alentejo.
While Évora is capital of district and a charming very well preserved city, full of history and very proud of its UNESCO classification, Serpa and Mertola are situated “in the middle of nowhere”.
While in Évora you will discover charming small farms, cattle pastures and many cork oaks, in Serpa you will discover the wilderness of the Guadiana riverbanks, which contrast dramatically with the plains of the cereal fields and the olive groves.
To add some flavour to your days we also promise some olive oil and wine tasting, wonderful gastronomy and very passionate guides.

Come walking with us and you will surely come back for another trip!
