Property buyers who love Portugal should take a good hard look at one region slightly off the tourist track, the Alentejo region. Alentejo property is becoming increasingly popular with expats moving away from the Algarve.

Portugal’s Algarve region has been the country’s major summer hotspot for years, and it continues to attract visitors from near and far. New developments and infrastructure are drawing more interest from tourists and investors as the region looks to continue as the most popular destination in the country for the future.

The Alentejo occupies the south central part of the country and stretches from the Tagus River in the north to just above the Algarve in the south. It seems that right now those investors seeking property in Portugal will find that this region ticks all the right boxes. It borders Spain on the east, the Lisbon metro area in the west and has a stretch of mostly pristine beaches along the southwest of the region. There are only a couple of cities of any size: the region’s capital Evora, in the north central part of the region; Beja which is in the middle; and Sines along the coast.

The climate of this region is the warmest in the country. It is nearly as southern as the Algarve, but doesn’t have much of the moderating coastal weather. The small stretch along the coast is one of the most pristine areas of the country, though there are a couple of resorts there. Towards the northeast the gently rolling countryside turns into granite hills and valleys as you approach the Spanish border, which is a bit cooler than the rest of the region.

The region’s economy is based mostly on farming and agriculture. Sines, which is in the Setubal region, is on the border of the Costa Verde and Alentejo. It is a largely industrial town, with oil refineries and a busy port. Tourism is minimal in this part of the country, but the ancient ruins do bring visitors. There are plenty of Roman era structures, castles and ancient megaliths throughout the region. The capital of the Alentejo, Evora, has a population of 55,000 and is the largest city in the region. It is considered one of the most picturesque cities in the country, with a major university, historical sites and a laid back lifestyle. It is 130 kilometres to the east of Lisbon and has a small airport, as well as train and bus service to the capital.

There are country homes, seaside resorts and villas of all sizes for those who want to live in this part of Portugal. There is also plenty of Alentejo property, ranging from small building lots to ruins that can be built upon or large tracts. Whatever you want, this part of the country has something to offer.
