“ Aonde mais gostamos de passear a cavalo. Bem perto da Reserva Alecrim, têm bons e bem cuidados cavalos, super mansos. Os tratadores e guias são muito simpáticos e bem pedagógicos. Têm passeios lindos para fazer junto á Lagoa de Melides, na mata ou na praia, á beira mar ou na falésia. Um luxo!. Não precisa saber montar mas convém não ter medo de animais. +351 917 474 865 www.passeiosacavalomelides.com”

“Maybe one of the most sophisticated restaurants in this area. I recommend the Fesco fish without being a nursery. When arriving just look at the fish, choose and go sit down to eat. There are more economical alternatives, but here usually the quality is very good. In certain epochs of the year I suggest a phone call to make a reservation. It is a 10-minute drive away. Bon appetites!”

“Da mesma forma que o número de táxis à porta de um restaurante em Lisboa é um bom barómetro para avaliar a qualidade de um sítio, o número de carrinhas de caixa aberta à porta de um restaurante, nesta zona do Alentejo, é um bom indicativo para entrar. Pois entre na Quinta do Lourenço, sente-se, escolha entre a carne especial à moda da casa (com amêijoas e camarão), as migas com carne, as cataplanas de peixe ou de marisco, o ensopado de enguias ou qualquer um dos peixes do dia, vindo de Sines. Aos fins-de-semana há sempre caracóis. EN 261, Saibreira. 26 990 7329. Fecha à quarta.”
