The land is located at an altitude of 500 meters, at the foot of Foia, (highest point of the Algarve at 902 meters).
The Via Algarvianna (a 2-week marked hike, which passes through Foia) is 2km from our land.
Please note that the access to the land is by foot, 7 minutes walk from the M1067 road, the path to our land is only passable for 4x4! (or the old cars you don't care about anymore :-D)
The particularity of our place is the deep calm that reigns there linked to our very isolated situation.
No neighborhood, no road near the buildings, minimal noise and visual pollution, perfect for stargazing!
The 2 hectare site is in the middle of eucalyptus trees, and has been cleared of eucalyptus trees to favor native vegetation, based on: arbutus, chestnut trees, cork oaks.
Only 3000 m2 are shaped as terraces and allow the installation of tents.
Most of the pitches are located between 2 olive trees.
The shade is light and not permanent during the day.
Most of the pitches are only accessible by foot.

Marie's place is perfect for those who are looking for days of relax in the nature.
The setting is a bit remote but very fascinating in terms of architetture and lifestyle.
Hot water and dry toilet were very well built and clean.
Marie was verry kind in guiding us in a half day trekking in the mountains of Monchique region.
Above all we loved the atmosphere of the house and playing cards with her daughter.
