Set in the middle of the Algarve, Eco-lodge Brejeira is the ideal place from which to explore this beautiful region and to feel at one with nature.

Take your pick from the following unusual accommodation types:

Yurt: Spacious and well equipped, this traditional Mongolian yurt is placed on a raised wooden platform with a veranda at the front where guests can relax on the lounge chairs and enjoy the sunsets.

Gypsy caravan: The first thing you see through the windows in the morning, when you wake up in the cosy double bed, is the splendid view over the Monchique mountains from this old-fashioned Dutch gypsy caravan.

Fire truck: Once upon a time, this German van was used as an ambulance for the fire brigade. It has since been transformed into a small camper with a kitchen and a sitting area that can be transformed into a double bed. A nice sleeping place for the kids next to the yurt or the gypsy van, or a kitchen with dining area in case you want to be completely independent at the yurt.

Camping: There is a limited opportunity for hikers and mountain-bikers to pitch up their tents for the night. They may then use the outside shower and the public toilet and, if they wish, make use of the breakfast service.

A small, open, strawbale building serves as a central area, where breakfast and dinner are served on request. Guests can savour a drink there, or simply lie in the hammock and enjoy the spectacular view.

Electricity is provided by sun and wind; water by our own source.

Toilets are ecological, the content of which ends up on the compost heap to later feed the organic vegetable garden.

We try to use environmentally friendly products wherever possible and separate all waste. We strongly encourage guests to do likewise.

Most of the furniture and other items have come from flea markets or second-hand shops from the area and have been given a second lease of life on our eco-lodge.

Embraced by the hills of Silves, the eco-lodge is the perfect place to unwind and relieve stress.

Ideal for romantic couples and for those who appreciate a personal approach and unique atmosphere, and for those who wish to treat nature with respect while still enjoying a great deal of comfort.
