Alentejo is one of the most surprising luxury destinations in Portugal that thrives in service, tradition, and local artisanry.
It’s the country’s largest and wildest region yet still unknown to many. Extending from the Algarve to central Portugal, Alentejo is home to rugged coastlines, lush farmlands, olive trees, and small villages bursting with history.
Not far from Lisbon, Alentejo offers a combination of World Heritage Cities, fine wine, and gastronomy. Come explore this untouched region perfect for high-end programmes and exclusive groups.
A Step in the Past
One of Portugal’s most beautifully preserved medieval towns, Évora is an enchanting place to delve into the past. Inside the 14th-century walls, Évora’s narrow, winding lanes lead to striking architectural works: an elaborate medieval cathedral and cloisters; the cinematic columns of the Templo Romano (near the intriguing Roman baths).
A Luxurious Stay
Évora is home to several 5-star hotels including the Convento do Espinheiro Hotel and Spa. Housed inside a renovated 15th-century convent, this high-end hotel reflects luxury in every detail. Surrounded by curated gardens the hotel counts with indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, and spacious suites.
Start the day with a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the rolling hills of Alentejo. The one-hour activity is the perfect mix of peace and adrenaline for a more adventurous group.
Learn the art of breadmaking and try your hand at the famous bread of the region: pao Alentejo. The experience takes guests to a convent where a local chef explains the fermentation process and then allows visitors to taste the local butter, cheese, olives, and wine.
Any high-end incentive programme in Alentejo is complimented with a day excursion to a nearby wine estate. Tour the vineyards and visit one of the most authentic wine cellars in the region. Afterward, enjoy a wine tasting and lunch on the estate.
