I’m Bubbles (Camp Dog & Head Of Security), I am one of three family dogs on site, which roam free and are harmless, part of our job description is to bark when strangers arrive, so provide good security for our family. For those of us better behaved dogs! by all means run free, but please ask your owners to clean up after you. It is not only dogs that love camping and caravanning!

Fresh air, stunning views, natural surroundings and good physical exercise, It’s something we always think about doing, but often don’t take the initiative. Cycling and Walking are both good clean fun and It’s COMPLETELY FREE!. The Algarve offers numerous trails, with different views, variety of terrain and spiritual-like experiences for both hikers and cyclers. Portimão, the Sierra de Monchique is a great place for hiking as there are kilometres of trails and natural paths where you can discover the natural beauty of inland Algarve. If you´d rather breath the fresh ocean air, you can always opt for a walk on the beach. Cycling is becoming one of the best ways of getting around and seeing all of the sights. If you fancy a day out on a bike, there's a fantastic trip where you are taken to the highest point in the Algarve Foia above Monchique and then you cycle down to sea level on quiet country roads. Cycle helmets and lunch are provided and you are accompanied all the way. The views are fantastic and the great thing is that it's mostly downhill.
