Eco-Lodging in the Algarve

The Algarve isn’t all high rise resorts you know.

I’m always on the lookout for unusual places to spend the night. Why spend any more time in a box you overpay for when you don’t have to?

Near the Algarve town of Silves you’ll find the Ecolodge Brejeira, where you can spend the night in a yurt or a fire van.

How did I find the Ecolodge? It’s one of the Guardian’s favorite glamping places.

And…if you come from October to December, you’ve arrive in medronho picking season. They make a typical liquor out of it a few months later.

Check it out if you vacation more for nature and to learn about local traditions rather than sitting on a beach.
