Most of us these days, and despite COVID, are all eager to travel and just wait for restrictions to be levied. We are counting the hours to get away and explore new horizons. It is also true, though, that today we approach travel in a different manner. Today we look for a safer way of travel, to abide by social distancing and, at the same time, enjoy and enrich from our journeys. Accordingly, today we somehow move away from large cities, crowded sites and large hotels, and look to dive into regions where we can be in open spaces, enjoy nature, outdoor activities while, at the same time, being able to experience the essentials of the region where we have travelled.
Spain and Portugal clearly offer a vast world of possibilities to travel in this fashion: both offer not only their historical heritage, excellent climate, rich traditions and cultural heritage (the attributes that make them two of the top 5 world destinations), but a world of possibilities to stay and explore out of the beaten track regions where you’ll enjoy your safe stay, enjoy the outdoor life and unveil a, probably, true essential Portugal and Spain, in a more authentic experience.
Let us show few ideas (we have hundreds!!):
ALENTEJO (by Lisbon) It is one of the most beautiful regions of Portugal. It is 1h away from Lisbon, and concentrates the essence of Portugal’s culture, traditions and gastronomical heritage. The region offer you the possibility to engage in plentiful outdoor activities, to explore some key monumental and historical sites and, never forget, enjoy an extraordinary gastronomy and wine.
Here we propose that you accommodate in Berrocal, a large farm state where you can rent a private barn, with one, two or three rooms and kitchen. You’ll be on your own in a beautiful property, with all the services of a resort, but on your own space.
One week in Berrocal allows you to learn about Portugal, to enjoy quietness and an extraordinary sightseeing, and be as active as your wish. Just to name some possibilities:
Stargazing, Bird watching, Sport Fishing, Bike tours, Horse Riding, Hot Air Balloon Flights, Boat tours at Alqueva lake, Spa & Wellness, Olive Trees trail & Olive Oil tasting, Wine tasting, Ceramics workshop, and easy access to explore Lisbon, Evora, and Monsaraz.
