Algarve-Evora-Coimbra-Lisbon route in March advice..?

Jump to last reply

We're starting in Tavira with a rented car for 3 weeks and Portugal to explore in March. Not interested in seeing it all on a whirlwind trip - a few nights in nice places along the way , ending as we drop the car in Lisbon and then have 5 days to explore there and surrounds like Sintra etc.
While beaches might not be a highlight at that time, it's looking like a coastal route north as far as Coimbra and back down towards Lisbon is a workable plan and any recommended stops along that way would be welcome. Porto and Douro Valley might be too much for this trip and we're not obsessed with wine, just enjoyers. We're 60ish and nightlife and excessive Cathedrals and Plazas might get repetitive - while cheapish rooms and simple hearty food are sufficient . So atmospheric places are always highlights for us.
Hope someone can suggest some nice places to see and stay ......
Thanks
