With their spacious, tastefully decorated interiors surrounded by peaceful gardens, these self-catered guest houses are the perfect place for a family vacation surrounded by nature. Located in the heart of Ria Formosa Natural Park, the Algarvian Nature Escape has 2 pools and a natural swimming lake and lush gardens. Much of the property is left intentionally untended to benefit Ria Formosa’s wildlife. For guests who enjoy nature watching, it’s easy to find a quiet spot to see storks, hoopoes, and chameleons.

Everything here is designed with young families in mind. Children tend to play together on the grounds, which are very safe (both pools and the lake are surrounded by fences). Breakfast can be delivered to your house and the on-site shop also sells a variety of ready-made meals and snacks. Each house has its own herb garden, and the property’s vegetable garden produces fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. A neighbour sells oysters and clams for guests in the mood for fresh seafood.

Ria Formosa Natural Park and the Algarve in general offer lots to do, from biking trails to beautiful beaches to historic castles. The hosts also organise some kid-friendly activities on the property such as stargazing, frog spotting, and crab races.

Our Reviews

Aoife stayed at The Algarvian Nature Escape with her family in September 2020: "We’ve just returned from our stay at The Algarvian Nature Escape and it was even more incredible than I had hoped. This was my first time booking via Little Voyager but I will definitely be doing so again. There are so many holiday options out there I get overwhelmed but knowing that someone had properly checked and recommended a property gave me so much more confidence when booking. Based on the quality of our stay at the Nature Escape the standards are very high at The Little Voyager. The Algarvian Nature Escape itself is the best holiday we’ve had in a long, long time. The hosts look after you so well. The property is immaculate. The gardens and pools stunning. The storks nesting in the garden were a great source of entertainment for my little boy (and my husband!). So easy to get to from Faro airport and within easy reach of beaches and interesting towns. I’m already planning our next stay."

 

Tali stayed at The Algarvian Nature Escape with her family in October 2021: "We just enjoyed a wonderful week's holiday at the Algarvian Nature Escape as a family of 6. The little house was perfect for our needs and well set out with high quality interiors. It was cleaned thoroughly every other day and everyone working there was really friendly. We were right opposite the fenced pool which the children loved. It was great for our young children as it was such a safe, car free and familiar area they could take themselves off to the playground or to pick strawberries and pomegranates alone, to get some water from the “shop”, giving them the sense of independence and freedom they don’t often have in the city. The whole place is well set up so it never felt full and we often had the whole pool area to ourselves. We didn’t rent a car which forced us to take things very easy, we rented some bikes and cycled easily to Fuseta Beach which was beautiful and great for the kids. Would highly recommend the Algarvian Nature Escape for families!!"

Covered games area

Algarvian Nature Escape Games Area with The Little VoyagerOn rainy days, head indoors to the covered play area for a game of snooker or table football. This spot also has a Wii, children’s darts board, and a comfortable sitting area for parents who would rather relax and supervise.

Flying kites

On a windy day, ask your hosts to lend you one of their kites and spend a breezy afternoon flying kites as a family.

Nighttime frog and bat spotting

On warm evenings, your hosts will take the kids to the property’s natural swimming lake to see if they can spot frogs and bats.

Further afield

Beaches

Algarvian Nature Escape Beach with The Little VoyagerFuseta Beach on Ria Formosa’s Lagoon is only a short walk or bike ride away. The water is warm and there are no waves, which makes it great for younger children. A nearby cafe serves snacks and ice cream. You can also take a miniature tourist train to nearby Barril Beach, where you’ll find all the amenities you need for a fun family day: changing rooms, shaded play areas, and lots of family-friendly restaurants.

 

Activities for adults

At the property

Wellness

Let the tension drain out of your body with a full-body massage from the local massage therapist. Massages can take place in a quiet corner of the garden or in the privacy of your own holiday house. The property’s masseuse also offers relaxing massages designed especially for pregnant women.

Yoga

When the weather is warmer, your hosts organise weekly early-morning yoga classes by the pool, and can also organise additional private lessons upon request.

Further afield

Running

The Ecovia do Litorial bike path is just in front of the property, and is perfect for runners of all levels. If you want to train for a race (or just get tips from a pro), your hosts will be happy to call a personal trainer to assist you.

Biking

Algarvian Nature Escape Bikes with The Little VoyagerFrom mountain biking to leisurely e-biking along the coast, the Algarve has routes and options for all levels. Your hosts will be happy to lend you hybrid bikes and helmets to explore the area or bike to the beach.

Tours

There are many historical and cultural sites near the property that are worth visiting. The 12th century castle of Castro Marim is 35 minutes away, while the Silves Moorish castle and grottoes of Lagos are an hour to the west. Your hosts will be happy to give you recommendations on what to see.

The Area

Olhao is the largest fishing port of the Algarve, and serves as a gateway to several beautiful islands nearby, which are known for their white-sand beaches perfect for swimming, relaxing, and even snorkelling. The town is known for its municipal market that combines the fish market, which offers the day’s fresh catch for sale, and the fruit and vegetable market. Olhao is also known for being a great jumping-off point for the nearby wetlands of the Ria Formosa Natural Park.

The town itself is picturesque and quiet (though it gets busier in the summer). The white, square houses denote the area’s Moorish influences. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for azulejos, traditional blue-tiles that depict some of the historic events of the town. And no visit to Olhao would be complete without tasting some of the delicious fresh fish and shellfish served in most of the area’s restaurants.
