The Ker-terre (round house in earth) is located at 500 meters above sea level, 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 property.
Please note that the access to the land is by foot, 7 minutes walk from the M1067 road, the path that accesses directly to our land is only passable for 4x4! (or the old cars you don't care about anymore :-D)

The setting

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, 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.

The Kert-Terre welcomes you for a stay of great calm, 2 small round rooms stuck one has the other, one with 2 bed 1 person, the other is an atypical living room.
