Camping Holidays in Portugal

Alentejo Adventure, Portugal -http://www.alegretravel.eu
Situated within a secluded valley near Marvao and Castelo de Vide in the unspoilt and uncrowded countryside of the Serra da Sao de Mamede Natural Park. Relax in a spacious, comfortable 'Soul Pad' Bell Tent. Each one set in its own small field and kitted out with a wooden futon, and stylish furnishing including solar lighting. Carbon offset for guests' vehicles is achieved by the planting of either a cork oak or a chestnut tree, both indigenous species. 25 acres of tranquillity includes a lake, streams, meadows and woodland with direct access to dramatic landscapes ideal for environmentally low impact activities such as walking, cycling, swimming, birdwatching, photography and painting.

Canvas Moon. Portugal -http://www.canvas-moon.com
A small, intimate and secluded Luxury Eco 'glamping' experience, located near the Serra Da Estrela Mountains and Aguieira reservoir in Central Portugal. There are two Luxury Bell Tents both measuring five metres in diameter, located in secluded surroundings sheltered by pine forest with fantastic views of the mountains. The terraces are landscaped with tropical plants, palms, fruit trees, vines and pathways in a tranquil and relaxing location. The retreat is run solely on sustainable living principles, with solar showers, compost toilets, wind up gadgets and solar ligthing and home grown food.

 
Surf Algarve, Algarve, Portugal -http://www.surfalgarve.com
Surfing and yoga camp nestled in a valley of native cork trees, the retreat is the brainchild of enthusiastic Australian traveller and surfer Laurie Quirk. Staying here is a communal experience with accommodation in a large teepee, or on a small island camp just across a brook. For those wanting more privacy there is also the more secluded 'Couples Retreat' in an African safari style tent.
 
 
 
Yurt Holiday Portugal, -http://www.yurtholidayportugal.com/
Nestled in the mountains of central Portugal, about one hour inland from the ancient university town of Coimbra, these two Yurts are located on an organically managed smallholding, with olives, vines and fruit trees. They have their own own spring for water supply and energy is from solar power.
 
Lakeview Yurt Retreat, Cabril Lake http://www.lakeview-yurt-retreat.com
A retreat holiday site, set in an eco-zone by a beautiful lake, totally off-grid, using solar and wind for power. The owners aim to creating a welcoming and secluded space with delicious vegan/vegetarian meals where you can experience the healing benefits of living within nature, drink fresh spring water and eat locally grown food. Environmental impact is minimised through the use of composting of all waste vegetable and human and recycling. There are two yurts available for rent, the English style bentwood yurt (the white yurt) and a Turkic style bentwood yurt.
