You may daydream

Quinta de Odelouca has 25 pitches and is a relaxed, family-run rural campsite, in the midst of nature, surrounded by glorious views of beautiful hill country of the Serra de Monchique. It is an ideal location for families with children, couples, walkers, cyclists, fisherman and photographers, and is within walking distance of the small parish of São Marcos da Serra.
Enjoy the ultimate peace in the shadows of the olive trees, the panoramic views, the birds and the wild flowers. In summer nights you will sit under a roof of billions of stars. And when you occasionally can't see them it's because of the full moon, which is rising big and pale behind the hills.

300 days of sunshine

They say about the Algarve that sun is shining 300 days a year. But of course it will be raining occasionally. Although here you can literally say: after rain there is always sunshine. Read more about the weather and the climate of the Algarve.
Almost every pitch has some shadow, but in the dry and warm season from May until the the end of September we recommend to bring extra facilities for shadow (porch, tarp or other sunshade. There is, also in summer months, always a light breeze that cools you down.

Environment and footprint

Our aim is to minimize our impact on the environment. Hot water heating is by 6 solar panels. Only on cloudy days we use a gas heater. The house and the reception have their own 12 solar panels to heat the floor. Last year we installed 32 solarpanels which cover one third of our electricity needs. We have a borehole with our own drinking water through reverse osmosis, which reduces an amazing amount of plastic disposals. All public light bulbs are low energy bulbs and we are now replacing them with led-bulbs. Of course, all our showers and taps have flow reducers.
