A couple of years ago, your hosts – Ali (her) and Dave (me, see above) were on holiday somewhere in Portugal. We dreamt of a retreat from the pressures of urban living. Comfortable camping in the heart of rural Portugal, exclusively for grown-ups, a sideways move from the tourist traps and the bland blare of identical tour reps.
So here it is, the dream made real: Dolittle Holidays, right in the middle of a forest, in the tiny village of Moita Negra, nestled in a lush, green, ICNF-protected natural space in the slowly-beating heart of the Ansião district of Central Portugal. Surrounded by ancient olive trees and twisted oaks, we have four luxurious bell tents, set among meadowlands and wildflowers a-flutter with butterflies. Inside there are comfortable double beds and all the convenience you’d expect from a hotel room – but under canvas!
When you get here, you must try our homemade muesli – Ali’s special recipe (never the same twice). Sit in the breakfast eira and enjoy fresh bread from the local bakery every morning, spread with marmalade made of oranges plucked from our own trees.
We’re open from June to the end of October, so if you like what you see, we’re ready to take your booking. Just pop your contact details in the box on the left and we’ll get straight back to you.
When you want to get away, this is where you want to be.
