Location + Surroundings
This romantic and cozy yurt is located on the southern tip of Portugal in Algarve, Serominheiro, six kilometers from Aljezur and 8 kilometers from the beach. The property can be found on the Vicentina Coast, this is the finest preserved stretch of European coastline, covering over 100 kilometers, from Porto Covo in the Alentejo to Burgau in the Algarve. The park includes various unique species of animal and plantlife and is visited by many zoologists and botanists from all parts of the world.
The coastal strip between Odeceixe and Burgau is a different part of the Algarve, where the preserved nature has a strong, wild character, creating landscapes of breathtaking majesty. The landscape is marked by steep cliffs, represented in the Park's logo, that have been given various forms and coloring by centuries of erosion.
The beaches are very popular among surfers and are the finest in the country. There is a tremendous variety of beaches, including long stretches of sand and small beaches nestled between the cliffs and rocks. The long list includes beaches such as Arrifana, Odeceixe, Vale dos Homens and Praia do Amado. If you have the desire to stray from the beaten track, albeit with difficult access, it’s possible to discover many other beaches that have been preserved in a virtually unspoiled state
The property is also 30 kilometers far from the Mediterranean sea in Lagos, with the colorful cliffs of Ponta da Piedade as a backdrop. Guests will enjoy the surrounding natural beauty of this rustic location. Historic buildings, small fishing villages, and open-air cafes, as well as sandbar islands and rugged cliffs, provide sightseeing and recreational opportunities for families or couples.

The hosts can help guests with planning activities, such as yoga, donkey rides, horse rides, Kaiake, Costa Vicentina Route, or water sports, as well as give guests details about the best places to explore or to eat.
Many bird species can be seen, such as rare fishing eagles. The rarest species is the white stork, given that this is the only place in the world where they build their nests on the seashore rocks. Another rarity is the otter since this is the only place in Portugal and one of the last places in Europe where it is possible to find otters in a marine habitat. Plant life includes the largest number of priority species in Portugal, including unique indigenous species such as Biscutella vicentina or Plantago Almogravensis.
In the extreme southwestern section of the park, guests should be sure to visit the lighthouse in the Cape of São Vicente after whom this stretch of coastline has been named and the nearby Sagres promontory, that housed the famous nautical school founded by the Infante D. Henrique in the 15th century.
Moreover, the property is located in one of the best places in the country for surfing, and guests will find many popular spots for surfing like Praia da Arrifana and Praia do Amado. In Odeceixe, the beach sits on both sides of a stream, offering swimming in the sea and in the river.
Just 20 km far from Aljezur, in Monchique, guests can find hot springs and a long list of outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, initiation to rope climbing and abseiling, cableslide, rope handling, archery, paintball, orientation, environment, and birdwatching. Guests should check out the fabulous Rota Vicentina, as well.
Portugal's southern tip holds a treasure trove of historic, cultural, and natural attractions for glamping guests to enjoy. Between beaches, nature, train trips, and nightlife, the whole group is sure to find something they love.
