About Glamping Holiday Algarve

My partner and I live on the land and have been here for around 8 years. We have been in the Algarve for more than 15 years and love it here. I felt like this was ‘home’ as soon as I spend some time here. We don’t have any kids, but we have dogs, most of them rescue dogs. The Glamping area however is separate so you won’t be bothered by them and if you do come across them, they are friendly. Our Glamping site is small and sweet. We have 2 beautiful Lotus Bell Tents which sleep 2 people each. There is a shower and toilet for each one, then a shared kitchen area, with full size cooker and fridge. Plenty of cupboard space and they are equipped, hopefully, with all you’ll need. We are about 20 minutes (13 kms) from Lagos in the valley behind Praia da Luz. The last 5 minutes or so are on a track – it’s not too bad, just take it slowly. If you are a chocolate fan, then you are in luck as I make and sell raw, organic chocolate! It’s my passion, chocolate from and for the heart! I make it without any sugar or dairy and it is DELICIOUS! If you fancy chocolate treats for your stay, then I am your woman!

Activities & Facilities

There are lots of activities to enjoy whilst staying with us – we can offer horse-riding, off-road trips further into the ‘bush’. Mountain bikes, motorbikes or just plain old walking of course. Surf camps are all over, so lessons are easy to find. We also can arrange some pampering, whether it be massage, facials, pedicures or manicures. We also have information of various yoga and dance classes that are offered around our area. Meditation and Tai Chi too. It’s a small village with a lot to offer! There is even a Zoo nearby! Oh and another restaurant just outside this village with live Fado – traditional Portuguese singing. You can often find live music in one bar at the weekend too.

Local Knowledge

I have lived in the area for 20 years so I know a lot about what goes on  and where to go here. We have restaurants and bars in the local villages, the closest one (5 mins in the car or 20 min walk) has a small café/bar where you can buy sandwiches, coffee, drinks etc. There is also a small shop with essentials. A little bit further away is a slightly larger village (know as ‘a town’ to those who live in the smaller of the two!) Here you have an Italian restaurant, I’ve yet to try it as it’s new, but it has been recommended by my friend’s Dad and he’s Italian so it must be good. There is also another bar which sells food, it offers different specials each day and always at a great price. Then you have another bar which has great pizzas and burgers, salads and occasionally live music. There are a couple of other cafes selling toasties, croissants, cakes as well. You’ll also find a pay phone (do people still use those…?) a bank machine and a post office here and two shops very well stocked with fresh produce and dried goods. The nearest big supermarket is a 10-15m drive away and has a fresh fish and butchers section.
