Monte da Galrixa

After an amazing hike by the rocky coast of the Rota Vicentina, I was ready for some relaxation. A short drive took me to the apartments of Monte da Galrixa where I would be staying for a week. I was immediately smitten with the panoramic view of the natural reserve. The clear blue water of the swimming pool surrounded by bright green grass caught my eye. Pure beauty.

Someone was approaching me. "Bem vindo!" José introduced himself with a friendly smile and proudly took me on a tour of his atmospheric apartments. Everything breathes a Portuguese atmosphere. Blue accents compliment the beauty of the white buildings. Such a gorgeous contrast between the colours of nature and the apartment. The tour ended by the pool where the fresh fragrance of the water entered my nose. The view from this swimming pool is magnificent. I couldn’t wait to go for a swim.

A glass of Portuguese wine and a colourful sunset completed the picture. I planned to visit a small fishermen’s village called Zambujeira do Mar the next day. José had told me where to find the best fish in Alentejo and I couldn’t wait to try!
