Departures | Autumn 2020

Rustic-modern farmhouse resorts are bringing a fresh style to Portugal’s Alentejo, while still protecting the region’s agrarian way of life.

ONE DOESN’T ARRIVE in the Alentejo so much as decamp to it. The drive from Lisbon is short, less than an hour from the city centre to the region’s northwestern edge, yet the sudden shift from busy capital to vast red earth is utterly transformative.
