About this listing
Amidst the typical south Portuguese medronho bushes stands the old-fashioned, Dutch gypsy van. First thing you see through the windows in the morning when you wake up in the cosy double bed is the splendid view over the Monchique mountain. Fitted with a sitting room and your own kitchen, you have the choice to start the day inside, or outside under the shelter that provides the shadow needed later in the afternoon. On chilly, rainy days, nothing beats warming yourself by the wood burning stove while the green abundance surrounds you.
Rustic stairs between two natural stone walls lead on one side to the shower, where you feel in the middle of nature under the pleasant jetstream, and on the other side to the toilet building that turns your daily needs into a real adventure.
If desired, you can make use of the breakfast service, which will be brought on location. . At a 15 minute drive, in Silves, numerous local restaurants offer a great variety of lunch or dinner, or you can, of course, cook your own meal in the kitchen.
No smoking inside the gypsy-van.
Such a beautiful quiet spot in the Algarve. We loved sitting watching the sun go down over the hills sipping wine from outside our little caravan. The caravan is beautifully restored, and is something special to sleep in! Claire and Sander were very helpful and friendly. We only wish we could have stayed longer!

About the Host, Claire
The dreamers, that’s us, Sander and Claire, since summer 2009, Brejeira counts a tough inhabitant: Ayla, and march 2011 has brought us a brand-new member: Ravi. Sander is a carpenter, but also an all-round handy-man, from electrician to plumber to plasterer, in short: the foundation of Brejeira. Claire, in some far away past a social anthropologist now converted to building-helper and vegetable- grower, runs the business. And luckily, we have Moelie and Zola, our two very faithful and very sweet female dogs, to guard the whole land and especially to give and receive a lot of cuddles. They enjoy all freedom, yet can, on request and at certain times, be tied up. However, those who do not like dogs will probably enjoy their holidays more somewhere else.
