Privately secluded on a friendly family site in the Algarve, the dreamlike Tara’s Tent is surrounded by sweet-scented orange groves, with enthralling views of Ria Formosa Natural Park.

As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll enjoy generous private facilities that include a cooking lounge and a timber-crafted en suite shower room, a plentiful supply of books to accompany you on the sun-soaked lounging terrace, and a pool to help you cool off on lazy afternoons!

Sleeping up to 5 guests, the spacious and thoughtfully-furnished African safari tent is ideal for relaxed small-family breaks, with a cosy sleeping space that features a kingsize bed, and a single that can be converted into bunk beds for two if needed and a doudle sofa bed. (the sleeping area can be easily separated by a curtain).

The charming interior feels instantly welcoming and homely, with an elegant lounge furnished with a squishy sofa, an ornament-clad dresser and bookcase, and a table and chairs for indoor dining.

The cooking area, meanwhile, is well-equipped with a gas cooker, a fridge, and all the utensils you could want. Yet we’ve got a sneaking suspicion that most nights will be sizzling barbecue night, out on that glorious terrace!

Here you’ll find plenty of space for outdoor feasting and festivities, with vibrant dining furniture, plus those all-important sun loungers, and of course, the aforementioned pool. Just add cocktails and a melting Algarve sunset, and you’re in holiday heaven.

What to do after that sound night’s sleep under canvas-and-stars?  Well, after you’ve freshened up in your shower room, accompanied by a fluffy stack of freshly-laundered towels, you’ll soon find there’s plenty to see and do.

“Back for the second time to fully recharge in this secret hideaway. We truly love being here without to much interference from the outside world. So we as a family can get back can get back to the most important and that’s us. I hope we will be back in the here future.”

“We loved our stay in the tent. The sunrise in the morning and the stars at night are fantastic. It felt like our own little home. The eggs and fig jam were tasty. The view over to Fuseta was really peaceful and visiting Olhao and Tavira ended our post lockdown holiday nicely.”

“Thank you so much for a wonderful week in the tent. The views are amazing and don’t compare to your hospitality. You have looked after us so well this week it is hard to go home. We hope to be back soon.”
