True Getaway: Portugal Eco-Lodge

November 30, 2013 by


Sometimes vacations aren’t vacations at all; you arrive at your destination and immediately start planning the activities, leaving little space for relaxation time. If you need to truly get away, and surround yourself with quiet beauty, go no further than Eco Lodge Brejeira, in Silves, Portugal.

This off the beaten path lodge brings you into the hills of Portugal. Expansive views and unpolluted nighttime skies bring back a childlike sense of awe at how small we really are.


Breijera offers 4 unique accommodations, all working in harmony with the surrounding landscapes. The Yurt provides easy nighttime viewing through the open roof while the Gypsy Van offers a cozy fireplace and a natural stone wall outdoor shower with and endless view of the mountainside.

The fire van, an old German ambulance turned camper van, offers a unique and cozy stay, while campsites offer the most intimate experience with nature. The Yurt, Gypsy Van, and the Fire Van all have in house kitchens, but breakfast service is also available for all accommodations.


The Eco Lodge is run by a Portuguese couple and their two faithful dogs who you’ll see roaming around the land, or possibly hiking by your side.

Local activities include day trips to the beaches, visiting the local town of Silves (15 minutes away), hiking the mountains, or simply laying back and enjoying Portuguese wine.

This is a true no frills getaway, a true vacation.
