Come and join us in the peace and tranquility
of our eco-retreat and enjoy a Tipi holiday at Monte Joao Afonso in the Algarve, the sunshine coast of Southern Portugal, and experience a truly unique holiday. Tipi Algarve offers glamorous camping, otherwise known as "glamping"... with real comfort under canvas.

Guests can stay in one of our stunning and spacious North American Tipis with size options for 2 people or a large family, or our family sized Western Yurt all of which are furnished for your comfort with real beds and fresh linen. We can also offer spacious Safari Tents which are perfect for either couples or families or small groups.
We can also offer accommodation in our little Studio Cottage, near the tipis and tents, which has a kitchenette and ensuite bathroom... perfect for 2 adults (and one baby too).

Each unit has its own private camp kitchen with fridge, gas rings to cook, cooking utensils, pots & pans, crockery & cutlery, tables & chairs and a hammock to enjoy alfresco dining under our pollution-free starry night sky. We have separate ladies & gents communal shower & toilets.
We are only 45 minutes drive from Faro Airport and 15 minutes drive to stunning beaches and near all the main attractions the Algarve has to offer.

Tipi Algarve is ideal for special occasions...

For couples wanting a romantic getaway or honeymoon, we have a quiet secluded area away from the rest of our campers. The clear starry nights can be appreciated in your Tipi or Yurt bed. A truly magical "Canopy and Stars" experience.

Family holidays don't have to cost the earth as another of the many great features at Tipi Algarve is that your Kids Go Free! (*under 12yrs).

With its secluded countryside location in an area of Portugal's protected forestry, Tipi Algarve is perfectly situated for a Tipi holiday, to escape the maddening crowds of summer yet is just a few minutes away from the bustling port town of Portimão and a great choice of superb local beaches. After a day exploring the Algarve, you can kick back & relax and enjoy a refreshing glass of wine on the terrace whilst the sun goes down. Or as the evening draws in, take it easy and relax in the chillout lounge. There are plenty of card and board games, and a play area available to amuse the kids, hot chocolate to settle them before bed plus pool table and table football for the more active. Who needs TV or play station when you have all this!

We are a small & friendly business and pride ourselves that the whole site is an extension of our home where we welcome guests as we would our friends and family... truly a holiday with a difference. Tipi Algarve is the perfect setting for a very special and memorable holiday... staying in your own Tipi, Yurt or Safari Tent will provide you with a unique at-one-with-nature experience and a comfortable, low-impact, ecological and ethical holiday where you can venture out to discover the delights and treasures of this charming region of Portugal..

Tipi Algarve offers something for everyone … families on a half term break or an adventure holiday, couples sharing the seclusion of romantic getaway, or groups of friends enjoying memorable moments together basking in the sea, groups enjoying team building activities, people seeking a healing retreat who may wish to take advantage of the yoga & complementary therapies available on site.

Perhaps you would like to organise your own Meditation and Yoga Holiday, retreat or workshop. Also 3 Day Juice Fast detox programs may be available upon request. Whether you're a surfer, walker, birdwatcher, course facilitator, painter, extreme sports fanatic or simply want to chill out … you can do it all here in the Algarve.

We always do our utmost at Tipi Algarve to ensure that all our visitors have a fun, healthy, relaxing holiday in our little oasis tucked away from the summer crowds and that you take home special memories of your stay to cherish for years to come. Please feel free to get in touch for any information you cannot find here on our website or if you have any special arrangements you would like us to help you with. For example we often organize Yoga and Surf breaks for friends or couples which can be tailored to suit your particular requirements.

So why not do something different this year - come and experience an "eco-glamping" holiday in our secluded valley amidst rustic, natural surroundings - all under the Algarve sun! We look forward to welcoming you....
