Évora Bike & Hike Tour | Half day | Bike

 

We walk along the «Silver Water» Aqueduct, fantastic 16th century engineering work of art, until we reach a beautiful and traditional Alentejo country house. We stop for a drink and return to Évora by bike, through the eco trail. Downhill and flat, no effort! We ride through Évora´s unique historical centre.

Enchanted megaliths | half day | Bike or Jeep off-road

 

By bicycle or jeep, we discover the most emblematic megalithic sites of the region: the menhir and cromlech of Almendres (more than 6000 years old!) and the dolmen of Zambujeiro. We visit the ruins of Giraldo´s Castle and the roman ruins of Tourega. Somewhere under a tree we stop for a bite of a local cheese and chorizos and, of course, a good glass of wine!

Canoeing tour| half day | Canoe

 

In a canoe, we explore part of the calm waters of the river Degebe. Birds keep us company and nature delights our senses. After a deserved local snack we go for a walk along the river bank, visiting a water mill. Hours of total relaxation, ideal for those in search of peace and tranquillity.

Wine, cheese, arts and crafts | full day without lunch | Jeep

 

We visit a cheese maker, which also produces local liqueurs and honey. Then discover a wine farm, built in gorgeous ancient architecture and with an impressive private carriage collection and beautiful architecture. Wine tasting included, off course! We’ll visit the historical center of Arraiolos where you can taste the famous pastries and then climb to the castle, which has gorgeous views. We visit the fantastic Aldeia da Terra, which is like a clay cartoon.

Cork and marble route | full day without lunch | Jeep

 

We stop under a cork tree and learn about cork extraction. We visit a cork factory and see the wonderful products that are made there.
Then we explore the moon like landscape of Estremoz. Visit the marble quarries, wondering how all this came about. We wonder at the gorgeous historical center of Estremoz, where the “white gold” shows off its “chic” look and climb the tower of Estremoz, finishing with a luxurious glass of red wine at a local winery.

Conquering Monsaraz | full day | Jeep off-road

 

We travel by jeep through the river Degebe valley heading to the majestic Alqueva lake. After a picnic lunch by the lake, we conquer Monsaraz on foot. On the way back, we visit some megalithic monuments and a pottery where you can see the men molding the clay and the ladies painting wonderful patterns.

The Convento do Espinheiro is the ideal place to host your  special event as it features various types of facilities and is surrounded by 8 hectares of beautiful gardens, making it the perfect setting to enjoy the relaxing Alentejo countryside.
