This is the Alentejo


Golden plains that disappear out of sight combine with the sun and the heat to impose their own slow, steady rhythm. This is the Alentejo. Inland, the vast golden wheat fields undulate in the wind; along the coast, un-spoilt beaches appear rugged and unexplored.

In Alentejo, the brute force of the land dictates the march of time.  Perhaps this is why the region’s culture has its own particular character. Just visit Évora and discover its Roman roots and the delightful charm and heritage to understand why the city has been classified as a World Heritage Site. Also check out the Diana temple  and some of the city’s churches to understand the history.

But don’t travel northwards or southwards without exploring the region’s coastline. There the landscape consists  high sheer cliffs sheltering tiny beaches which are truly spectacular.

Den Bosch


Old canals, perfectly preserved buildings and interesting museums await you in the city of Den Bosch, in the south of Holland. Being less than 50 miles from Amsterdam and an easy train ride away, makes it easy to combine the two! The famous painter, Jheronimus Bosch, lived and worked here until he died. Much of the original medieval structure of Den Bosch is still intact today. Visit the St. Jan’s Cathedral, which is the pride of the city. Take a boat trip underneath the city or a cycle tour along the fortifications. Or perhaps visit one of little bistro’s along the Korte Putstraat in Den Bosch. Come and visit Holland’s most hospitable city.
