THE LIFE ON RETREAT

Trip Wows

A visit to the Alentejo region is like stepping into the past, to a time before cities, where ages old quiet rolling countrysides of wheat, olive trees, vineyards and cork tree groves are the rule. Here the food, like the pace, is anything but fast, with tasty delicacies like aged cheeses, and ham produced from the black-footed pigs that devour the acorns falling from the region’s oak trees. It’s also the seat of the world’s cork production, still harvested by hand at the same slow pace that’s been followed for generations. We’ll follow house rules and unwind at one luxurious hotel for the course of our vacation, guaranteed to put you where you want to be without a lot of work, and with a lot of relaxation. Plus, on select dates, choose to indulge in daily yoga classes with our local Yogascapes certified instructor. From delectable meals to Roman temples in towns like Evora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where city walls and ruins of Roman baths still remain, this is where time stands still, and the hustle, bustle and busyness of everyday life are long forgotten.

HIGHLIGHTS
Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Evora and Elvas and explore their medieval history
Sample some of the delicious floral red wines and mineral whites that showcase the local terroir
Fly over the Alentejo wine region in a hot air balloon
Ride through the vineyard lined roads and quiet country lanes surrounded by olive and cork trees, and fields of wheat
Unpack and unwind at the Alentejo Marmoris Hotel and Spa, a prestigious member of the “Small Luxury Hotels of the World”

“We never expected to walk away feeling that we just experienced the best vacation we have ever had. This from two people who have traveled every Continent but Australia and have had very memorable experiences. On the flight home we were already planning our trip for next year. We are hooked!” -Elyana, Trek Travel Guest
