Heading north through Portugal’s Alentejo Region to Porto Côvo
Alentejo is full of places of genuine natural beauty from the NE ‘white town’s of Estremoz or Villa Viçosa that remind us of travels across Andalusia and the ‘pueblos blancos’ of Ronda, Arcos de la Frontera or Zahara de la Frontera.. But our favourite route north tracks the coastline via the N120 towards Porto Côvo…a friendly fishing village full of white houses, stunning hidden coves and superb restuarants..
Every region should have Something special
If you get time to visit don’t miss these beaches which lie nearby including the popular Praia do Espingardeiro, Praia Pequenaand Praia dos Buizinhos… In fact even the Guardian Newspaper recently wrote that we should forget the regular known European destinations (like Ibiza etc) and take in a visit to Alentejo…. we can certainly see why and wholeheartedly agree!
