We stayed at Tipi Algarve with our four children aged 9,9,7 and 5 in August for 3 nights. We had the two Safari tents side by side with their own camp kitchen. The tents were fab with a double and single bed in each and the kitchen had gas rings and a fridge so everything you needed for cooking and camping! There was fresh water for washing up and a lovely plunge pool for cooling off in.
Calvin and Sam are excellent hosts who are welcoming and very helpful, there is loads to do nearby and if you fancy a lzay day at the site there are hammocks in the shade and a lovely chill out lounge with wifi for the evenings. The children loved the pool table and selection of games to play as well as Sunny and Chief the two resident dogs who are super friendly and very keen to catch a ball!
If you fancy something different from a villa/hotel holiday then this is the thing to try. There was yoga at 7am and 7pm each day taught by the lovely Caroline and both my daughter and my son did classes as well as myself and it was wonderful, the yoga temple is on the side of a hill overlooking the valley and at sunset it is perfect and a fantastic way to end the day.
There are flushing toilets and showers which although not hot are plenty warm enough..all the facilites are kept very clean. There is a vegetable patch and plenty of figs and grapes growing wild all over the site.
We had a wonderful stay and our children are already planning our next visit!
