Nestling in the limestone massif of the Algarve is the old village of Alte and here our hotel is beautifully situated on a hilltop with lovely views over the valley and distant sea. The sparsely populated hills are full of natural wonders, and we’ll spend some of the tour just walking out from the hotel or driving a few minutes from it. Azure-winged Magpies, Hoopoes and Sardinian Warblers are the typical local birds, whilst late season butterflies include Long-tailed and Lang’s Short-tailed Blues. Serene cork and holm oak forest are home to Dartford Warblers and Rock Buntings.
