Your host

Pjotr

Come and stay at AHUA in Odeceixe where you will be tucked away in an old cork-oak forest on the hill with great views! You will feel like you’re far away from human civilization while town is within easy reach and Odeceixe beach is less than 15 minutes away. You will be completely submersed in nature on our 18ha property. You can have your morning coffee with the sound of birds on the the terrace, or swinging in the hammock if you prefer. You can swim in the river, where you can also spot turtles and otters. There is plenty to see for the nature lover.

Nature and surroundings
• Beautiful views over the valley • Less than 15 minutes drive (4km) to Odeceixe Praia and close to many other beautiful beaches • Completely private in the middle of the forest • 1km from shops and 2km from the village of Odeceixe with numerous restaurants and bars • On 180,000m2 private property with swimming area in river, cork forest and beautiful views.. Our land is directly on one of the walks of the Rota Vincentina with many great routes close.

We have been on our land for almost two years now near the village of Odeceixe in the Algarve, Portugal, where we are working hard on our eco-project. We started this adventure with our “Yellow Van” and have completely renovated it ourselves. Now we have our communal camp area completely made of upcycled material (which of course you’re more than welcome to use), have our own veg production area, around 100 fruit trees, tree nursery, and much more. By staying with us you will support our project and help us do more good stuff :)

Please note: No check-ins after dark because we are in the middle of nature.

What a gem! This was a totally amazing find. Pjotr and Anne were so welcoming and it’s very inspiring to see what they have done with their property in such a short space of time and how the ethos of giving back to nature finds itself in the project. They had everything we needed to make our vacation comfortable and memorable. 5 stars, would definitely recommend.

How was the contact with the host?
Great communication. Instructions were really helpful, just keep following the road!

Lovely place, and above lovely people!
We really enjoyed our stay.
We are traveling with our tent so we had a nice spot in the damages in the wood.
The kitchen they build had everything you need. We would , and hopefully, come back again...

Very good. Always in for a chat, and give great tips. Like the hike next to the sea and nice beaches. Overall great people
