Adventuring in Alentejo

When B&R first started pedalling through the Alentejo in the 1990s, it was a bit rough around the edges, befitting its history as a desolate frontier. Two decades later, we are thrilled to find the region refined, with a rustic charm that continues to linger. Come (re)discover it with us and cycle past hilltop towns and sleepy villages, cork trees and vineyards, and farmland and olive groves. Explore the preserved medieval city of Évora, wine and dine with some our friends, and come nightfall, settle into historic buildings that have been transformed into your luxury accommodations.

Day by Day

Cross this River Tagus via the Vasco da Gama Bridge and begin your ride from the hilltop town of Estremoz. Pedal past olive groves and cork trees before arriving at the town of Redondo to dine on a lunch as local as they come.

Head out for an epic loop ride departing from the hotel and toward the Alqueva Dam. Finish at the legendary vineyards of Monte dos Perdigões for a tour of the estate, followed by lunch and a wine tasting.

Cycle through the countryside before arriving at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Évora. After a bite to eat here, head to your home for the next two nights: the former monastery turned 5-star retreat, Convento do Espinheiro.

Stop by our friend Nuno’s farm to tour his family’s estate and see how the landowners have been living for the past century. Sample his wines over a delicious homemade meal.

Bid farewell to Évora for your final ride and last chance to enjoy the perfumed air of the Alentejo countryside. Your ride rolls into a glorious ending at the hamlet of Santiago do Escoura, where you’ll lunch at the famous restaurant of Manuel Azinheirinha.

Depending on your flight time, you will be driven to the Lisbon airport or downtown if you plan to extend your stay in Portugal. Tchau!
