Come to this peaceful eco-friendly glamping retreat and enjoy a tipi holiday at Monte Joao Afonso in the Algarve - the sunshine coast of southern Portugal and the perfect place for a memorable and unique holiday.

Tipi Algarve offers glamorous camping under canvas with real comfort. Guests can stay in one of the stunning and spacious North American tipis, or our family sized Western yurt, all of which are furnished with real beds and fresh linen. We can also offer spacious bell tents which are perfect for either couples, families or small groups.

Each unit has its own private basic outdoor camp kitchen with fridge, gas rings for cooking, cooking utensils, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery, tables and chairs and a hammock to enjoy alfresco dining under our clear and starry night sky.

We have separate ladies' and gents' communal shower and toilets.
