The Aletejo is an absolute must for hikers & birdwatchers. The feeling of space is tremendous. B&B Verdemar is surrounded by tracks, so no traffic, apart from a sheperd with its herd of cows or sheep, and lots of nature. Olive trees, orange trees, cork oaks, little streams, rice fields, valleys with corn, nowhere in Europe you can find so much unspoilt nature. A unique flora and wild life with a huge variety in wild flowers in spring.

Verdemar has a map with a variety of written walks available for the guests, up to 20 miles. You can make your own plan for the day ahead. Most of the walks start in Verdemar, some of them have another starting point, then you need a car. There are also tours by car available.
