Delightful eco Shepherds hut, near Silves, Algarve
Silves, Faro, Portugal
About this micro camping
Our lovely Shepherds hut sleeps two and is Situated in a beautiful tranquil valley ten minutes north of the charming historic town of Silves and twenty five minutes drive to the beautiful Algarvian coast. The “Chapel Hut” has an en-suite shower room, modern eco toilet and outdoor star gazing bath. Bathe amongst nature, under the stars in water heated by the sun. Positioned next to the hut is a lovingly built miniature chapel, a peaceful space to cool down, chill & dine in. Further down the garden there is also a traditional pizza and fish smoking oven.
Our hut sits in a garden with endless twists and turns ready for exploration, follow the maze like path up from the sub-tropical garden to our “Pequino Castelo” or Little castle, a simple ruin situated high above the valley with stunning countryside views. The last of the evening sun lingers here.
The hut has been simply but tastefully furnished, finished by a local craftsman, it has been fully insulated for comfort all year round. In addition to the shower room on board you will find a fully equipped kitchenette, comfy double bed, seating and a good wi-fi connection. Hot water is plentiful, supplied by our eco solar tank. Hammocks are scattered around the garden, essential for total relaxation in the Portuguese sun & shade.
For guest staying during the chillier months heating has also been provided to keep the hut toasty warm.
We think that the accommodation and garden offers something quite different, for people who love peace and quiet but also for those eager to explore and discover unexpected corners & unusual gems.
Holistic treatments available upon request.
Coming soon is the “Roulotte hut”, please enquire for details.
