The Portuguese Southwest Coast has kilometres and kilometres of deserted beaches. Some are better well hidden than others but one thing is certain, even in the hottest summer months, you’re bound to find almost deserted beaches. But Alentejo’s southwest is not only about the beaches. It has so much more to offer. The white painted houses with blue stripes in its villages, which still keep the daily life of ancient times, rise up through the valleys and golden plains in this region.

Day 1: The meeting point is at the Lisbon or Faro airport where we’ll welcome and brief you with the details of the program and equipment. The destination is the lovely country house Herdade da Matinha in the Cercal do Alentejo village. It’s lively and colourful decoration contrasts perfectly with the 20 ha of cork oak trees. Enjoy every corner of this lovely place and you’ll have the time to appreciate true luxury: the silence.

Day 2: After a wonderful breakfast with the famous and traditional Alentejo bread, we’ll have our first steps on the Vicentine Route. We planned a very interesting tour that connects the fishermen track to the historic path. It’s a track with a bit of each environment where the coast is presented by the typical fishing village of Porto Côvo. Matinha awaits us for an end-of-day between the valleys of cork oak trees. 18 km

Day 3: Breakfast spares any introductions and today’s walk is through the coast. The path between the Almograve beach and Zambujeira do Mar goes between pine tree forests, slopes and dunes. Zambujeira do Mar is famous for its fresh fish and seafood. A snack at the end of the day is mandatory. The Herdade do Touril is an excellent option to spend the end of the day. 20 km.

Day 4: After a big variety of traditional products at breakfast we’ll head to the landscapes around Herdade do Touril country house. These are unique beaches, pretected by centennial slopes and hills, with pine trees and the lovely sea breeze. Storks usually make their nests there. 12 km.

Day 5: We’ll leave Herdade do Touril country house and head south. In this tour we’ll cross the Alentejo region and enter Algarve through Seixe creek, that divides both regions, and follow the creek which will lead us to Odeceixe beach. This is where the creek and the Atlantic Ocean meet creating a truly unique and astonishing landscape. From the beach, it’s only 3 km more until you can find Odeceixe village and when you see the windmill, “Casas do Moinho” is just next to it. 18 km.

Day 6: After having a more Algarvian breakfast, today’s walk goes around Odeceixe. Seixe creek is the starting point for this tour that heads south and ends in Odeceixe beach. We continue along the shore and we’ll find historical paths that allow us to return to Odeceixe. If you wish to walk some more you can take your chance and go until Aljezur. Casas do Moinho waits for you. 12 km.

Day 7: After saying goodbye to “Casas do Moinho” village tourism, we head towards the interior and follow the S. Teotónio creek at first and then the river Mira. We’ll then reach Odemira village that despite being the main and biggest city around, it can still delight its visitors with its peacefulness. Walk through the streets and head north where you’ll find the lovely “Quinta do Chocalhinho”. 20 km.

Day 8: After having breakfast on the outside (in case the weather allows it), the tour will be around Odemira, exploring every creek and every affluent. We can highlight the “Pego das Pias” a tributary to river Mira that ends in an idylic scenery only after just 1 km. We head back to Quinta do Chocalhinho that waits for you for a last sunset in Portugal. 12 km.
