The Alentejo is the south-eastern part of Portugal, famous for its fine wines, hospitality and centuries-old traditions of the local people. As locals say, the Alentejo is a place for a good siesta: a slow and relaxing rhythm of the Alentejo is very favourable for the atmosphere of the afternoon nap.
The Alentejo is a region of bright sun and mighty oaks, olive and cork trees, countless fields and vineyards, pastures and gardens. It’s fairly considered as an agricultural province of Portugal. The local wines are so soft and dewy that one can have a feeling that there is the sun itself in his glass.
The coastal area of the Alentejo is a zone of wild beaches and dunes and represents an unexplored and untouched natural beauty. Plenty of tourist complexes and golf courses are planned to be constructed here in the nearest future. The Alentejo is a rapidly growing tourist region with a great future as well as a promising direction for real estate investment. Therealty prices in the region are likely to rocket quite soon.
