Full description

Join us on a visit to the authentic and unknown interior of the Algarve, discover what this region has to offer beyond the famous beaches and enviable coastline. Get to know its unique culture and ancestral roots.

The first stop will be Loulé, a city with a rich historical past linked to the Arab civilization, which has left visible traces in the city center, in the houses and monuments. Take the opportunity to visit the traditional market, with fresh, quality local produce. From February to March, Loulé is decorated with lush almond blossoms, thus marking the end of winter. 

A visit to a cork producer will then take place, with a guided tour of the factory included. By the hand of an expert, you will get to know the whole cork production process and the various purposes for which it is used today, such as clothing and accessories, in addition to the common bottle stopper. Portugal is one of the main cork producers worldwide.

Then prepare yourself to taste the tasty typical gastronomy at lunch (not included) in a typical restaurant, to regain energy and continue the tour. 

With your batteries recharged, you will travel back in time to the village of Alte, considered one of the most picturesque villages in the Algarve, situated between the Barrocal and the Serra do Caldeirão. This small village seems to have stopped in time and offers a memorable landscape, surrounded by cultivated fields and tiled houses. Admire the view and breathe the fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of the big center!
