Relaxing in an Alentejo oasis

Winners of the Algarve Resident Valentine’s competition returned from their romantic mini break at the luxury Herdade dos Alfanges refreshed and relaxed after their stay in the Alentejo last weekend.

While on the weekend break, the lucky winners were able to explore the local city of Évora, enjoy wine tasting sessions and indulge in massage and beauty treatments.

Heleen Uitenbroek, owner of Herdade dos Alfanges, had initially been nervous that the couples did not know each other before the break.

“I needn’t have worried, though, as everyone got on really well with plenty of laughing and joking and everyone enjoying each other’s company.”

One of the competition winners, Carlos Messias, said: “It was a wonderful weekend, really magical. The staff were professional and friendly and we were very impressed with the fantastic work done on recovering the original décor.”

And another winner, Ray Brown, said: “The Herdade is an oasis of tranquillity and we would like to thank Heleen and all her staff for the attention to detail and warmth they extolled on us.”
