A Rural Rendevous and a Rare Luxury
We bid goodbye to Evora with a heavy heart. However, our journey down the plains of Alentejo will take you through vast landscapes of dainty houses with white washed walls and coloured bands around doors and windows. As we ride through the Alentejo greens on the bike, you can take in a lung full of the pristine, clean air of a small village at the center of Alentejo, Redondo.
They say the journey is more important than the destination. At Q, we will make you wonder which is more fruitful. Going past traditional Alentejo you would have pedaled your way to Vila Vicosa, also called the “Princess of Alentejo.” Like a princess’s crown studded with precious gems, the Princess of Alentejo is decked up in beautifully carved marble. Vila Vicosa is a land of churches dotted with chapels, monasteries, hermitages and convents. Widely known for the marble that is extracted from the region, we arrange for your stay at the very museum dedicated to marble. The Alentejo Marmoris Hotel&Spa is a unique and rare luxury, owned by a family working in the marble industry for generations. Living here, the perspectives you will gain of Alentejo will be well informed and in-depth. While you have had your fill of the best wines here, we want you to bid Alentejo farewell with the zingy flavor of olive oil.
