Town or City: Monchique
"fun for all the family…"
We have never been glamping before and kept hearing from friends who had stayed as a group at Tipi Algarve a few years ago and said they really loved it. So although we have only ever been camping once and it rained the whole time in Cornwall I have to say I was a bit reluctant to try it again. So this was a happy compromise for me. We stayed in this lovely Yurt which has a lovely comfortable double bed and the kids had their own beds too. The highlight for me was that there is a round hole in the ceiling so you could just look up at the stars at night, and there were so many. We wished we had brought our telescope. It was great that there was a small private camp kitchen with fridge and cooking rings all the utensils you might need to enjoy cooking al fresco including tables and chairs, garden furniture and hammocks. And the team were so friendly and approachable , nothing was too much trouble if you needed to get an extra pan from their main camp kitchen. There was a small pool to cool off at the end of the day when we returned from exploring all the great beaches nearby. There is a childrens playground and chickens, fish the kids can feed and the most adorable friendly black labrador who would play stick all day with kids. We met other families at the BBQ night and enjoyed the free Sangria! We were out every day so missed out on having a massage or doing Yoga but we all returned relaxed and went out and bought some hammocks for our garden.
