Vacation Rental Description
Tipi Algarve is glamorous camping, otherwise known as "glamping", camping at its very best. You are welcome to stay in one of Tipi Algarve’s stunning Tipis, traditional Mongolian Yurt, or Casa Hibiscus a beautiful compact self-contained one bedroom annex next to the main house. One of the many unique features of Tipi Algarve is that when you stay here the Kids Go Free! (under 12yrs).
For couples wanting a romantic getaway or honeymoon, we have a quiet secluded area away from the rest of our campers. We even have special packages for our honeymooners and free bottle of bubbly for couples...
Come and join us in the peace and tranquillity of our eco-retreat in the Algarve, the sunshine coast of Southern Portugal, and experience a truly unique holiday. With its secluded countryside location in an area of Portugal’s protected forestry, Tipi Algarve is perfectly situated to escape the maddening crowds of summer yet is just a few minutes away from the bustling port town of Portimão and a great choice of superb local beaches.
After a day exploring the Algarve, kick back and relax in our new Tipi Lounge, enjoy a refreshing glass of wine on the terrace whilst the sun goes down. Or as the evening draws in chill and relax by the cosy camp fire and listen to some chill out tunes gazing up at the stars. There are plenty of card and board games to amuse the kids, hot chocolate to settle them before bed or pool table and table football for the more active.
Who needs TV or play station when you have all this!
We pride ourselves that Tipi Algarve is an extension of our home and welcome you as our friends and family... truly a holiday with a difference. We also have regular volunteers who come and join us for working holidays, we truly could not have achieved this with out them.
