The yurt

For those wishing to feel alone in the world, rises on a wooden plateau, hidden in a cosy and sheltered corner, the yurt: a traditional Mongolian circular tent that has found its way to Brejeira. Hardly separated from its environment by the isolating felt and the outer canvas, the round walls safely embrace you like in a womb. While you count the many Algarvian stars through the open roof, the crickets sooth you into a deep sleep. A very comfortable double bed offers space for a couple; one or two extra matrasses and/or a babybed can be provided on request. It is also possible to rent the firevan together with the yurt as an extra bedroom; in that case, it will be parked next to it.

On chilly or rainy days, it’s a delight to sit in the cosy corner by the wood burning stove and warm your hands.

On the spacious veranda in front of the yurt, you can relax in the lounge chairs while you watch the sunset with a glass of good Portuguese wine. Accompanying the yurt, a small round garden house provides the necessary shadow on warm summer days and a cooking area with fridge, allowing you to make simple meals.

Short, carved out stairs lead to the bathroom, where you can enjoy a spectacular private shower with a view or a sitting-session on the compost toilet.

If desired, you can make use of the breakfast service. This will be served on location at a previously agreed time, so that you can enjoy your breakfast in all privacy. 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.

This location is not suitable for the physically infirm.
