The gypsy van

Amidst the typical south Portuguese medronho bushes stands the old-fashioned, Dutch gypsy van. First thing you see through the windows in the morning when you wake up in the cosy and comfortable double bed is the splendid view over the Monchique mountain. Fitted with a sitting room and your own kitchen, you have the choice to start the day inside, or outside under the shelter that provides the shadow needed later in the afternoon. On chilly, rainy days, nothing beats warming yourself by the wood burning stove while the green abundance surrounds you. It is possible, on request, to add an extra matras or a babybed in the sittingroom. Or, if you have two kids, you can rent the firevan as an extra bedroom, which will be parked next to the gypsyvan.

Rustic stairs between two natural stone walls lead on one side to the shower, where you feel in the middle of nature under the pleasant jetstream while you have the most fantastic view you ever had under a shower, and on the other side to the toilet building that turns your daily needs into a real adventure. Water is warmed by a solar boiler, yet if the sun is absent for a day, you are still guaranteed warm water by our freshly installed hot water boiler.

If desired, you can make use of the breakfast service, which will be brought on location on a previously agreed time. On request, a simple 3-course dinner is cooked once a week. Nearby, in Silves, numerous local restaurants offer a great variety of lunch or dinner, or you can, of course, cook your own meal in the kitchen.
