Beautifully refurbished Tree-Caravan situated inside a cluster of old pine trees & only 5 minutes walking distance from the sea and rocky sea pools bordering the property. The land is part of Arrabida natural park, has stunning views across the ocean & amazing sunsets.
Comfortable double bed, fridge,gas stove and sundeck with full view of the ocean. Unrivaled privacy in the middle of nature.

The space
This is the only self-sustained Eco-Caravan directly on the sea-front and it is the closest to all beaches. You can walk to the seafront in 5 minutes. The tree caravan is situated on 6 hectares of private land in the middle of the wild beauty of Cabo Espichel.
The tree-caravan is part of a project which celebrates the poetry and philosophy of Portugal's famous poet: Fernando Pessoa and his pseudonym Alberto Caeiro. The love for nature which he expresses can be found in this lovely space which is part of arrabida Natonal park and directly on the sea front. We let nature speak for itself without the need for fancy adornments.

-Located INSIDE, (not 'under' ) a rare centenary horizontally grown Portuguese pine tree: giving you plenty of privacy.
-Table, chairs and sun-deck from which you can view the sea and the unforgettable sunsets.
-In the distance the Sintra mountains and the lights of the bay of Lisbon can be seen.
-The tree-caravan is tastefully decorated with distinctive wallpaper, real wood cladding and cork. It has all basic amenities, such as a 2-pit gas stove for cooking, a small fridge and your own outdoor shower and private (compost) toilet.
- You can walk to 'Foz beach' in 15-20 min.
-The Village has a small supermarket, and a great bakery, a coffee/lunch place and a couple of restaurants. NB no ATM. We have good contacts and are happy to advice you and book you a table.

Location & transport:
-Merely 40 minutes from Lisbon. With your own car you would have greater autonomy which gives you the opportunity to explore the area really well.
Upon request we can also pick you up for a small fee (15,-) from Santana if you take the 207 or 260 bus from Lisbon.

Guest access
The entrance to the land is reached via a 3 km good dirt road from the village of Azoia on Cabo Espichel. Shout if you need help!

By foot, you can also exit the land at the bottom from where you reach the rock-pools and from where you start your walk to the beach.

Other things to note
Please note that the length of the bed is 1.83 cm (if this is an issue please look at the other accommodation 1.90 cm, or, 'Daisy by the Beach 1.95 cm, or 'Caeiro's Tree By the Beach' advert, in the same property). The caravan is very comfortable, and will ensure your close contact with nature and the wild beauty of the sea and the cape.

Cabo espichel, Meco, Portugal

Wild, unspoiled, with fantastic views to the Cape (to which you can hike), Lisbon, and the ocean. The land is farmed, as is the neighbour's.

Please not that there is no ATM in the village and that you can't drink the water on the land (ok for cooking). So bring some drinking water.

After 17 years of living in England I decided to return to my native country Portugal. I build my own house on Cabo Espichel (Sesimbra) on a magic piece of land bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Together with Suze, I set up and run the Cantinho Alberto Caeiro: small scale rural tourism which celebrates the poetry of Fernando Pessoa, Portugal's most famous poet.

'We had a wonderful time! Nuno & Suze truly turned this piece of earth into a paradise. The caravan had all you need, is very clean and super cozy. You are at your private beach in 5 minutes and can enjoy an awesome sunset! They are great hosts and helped us with everything we needed to know: we'll come back for sure!'
