Montes da Ronha
20 MINUTES FROM S. TEOTÓNIO NEAR ZAMBUJEIRA DO MAR
AND ODEMIRA BETWEN THE OCEAN AND THE MOUNTAINS.
THIS REGION IS KNOWN FOR THE BEACHES AND TO HAVE ONE OF BEST WAVES FOR SURF AND BODYBOARD, FRESH FISH AND NATURE IN IT´S MOST PURE STATE
It´s on the Natural Park of Alentejo Southwest Coast.
Alentejo is in the South of Portugal, it is one of the most untamed regions in the country, it is one which gives us the sense of space. You can see houses, or better called “Montes”, scattered around dry golden plains and rolling hillsides.
The rugged coastline hides beaches for all tastes and the traditional whitewashed villages are all inhabited by proud, melancholic people who valiantly cling to their local crafts. Some of the spots “alentejanos” are busy, especially during the summer, however there are others more relaxing and, even more importantly, more genuine, that’s the case with Saboia, where we are located at. This region allows you to experience a peculiar suspension of real life.
Our “Montes” are located twenty minutes from S. Teotónio, near Zambujeira do Mar and also Odemira, the village with more infrastructures. This is a region known for its beaches, for its surfing waves, for its hiking trails, and also for its great fresh fish. If you prefer rivers, there is also Rio Mira where you can hire some canoes or Barragem de Santa Clara where it is possible to rent some boats. Just follow our suggestions for references.
This is the Natural Park of Alentejo Southwest Coast, also described by Rota Vicentina.
