Overview

Book
If you are looking to get away from the busy bustle of everyday life and be enchanted by remote, wild and quiet Portugal whilst enjoying fun activities with your family and others then this is the holiday for you. We are centre-based in a charming villa in the countryside just 10km from the most southwestern tip of Portugal. The area is also part of the South West Alentejo and Vicentine coast Natural Park, which is said to be some of the finest preserved stretches of European coastline. Our hosts take us on a selection of activities over our time here. At the start of the week we kayak down the river to the sea, have a morning rock climbing, spend time on the beach and go for a bike ride. There is plenty to do in the large grounds of the accommodation with archery, a zip line, kayaks on the lake, the vegetable farm and hammocks in the shade perfect for relaxing with a good book and perhaps a little tipple! We finish the week with an optional boat ride along the rugged peninsula to Cabo de San Vincente where we might see dolphins, and experience one of the best sunsets, and then a day surfing with full instruction. In the evenings we eat delicious home-cooked meals using many ingredients grown in the garden, or we sit around the fire pit under the stars telling stories and chatting with a glass of wine. The exact order of play during the week is dependent on the weather and the group. Sunshine and adventure are the key words for this family holiday. A stress-free family friendly atmosphere surrounds the whole week and we will be well taken care of, fed and wined whilst relaxing and getting some exercise and fresh air. Its a winning formula.

Highlights

    • Centre-based at a charming farmhouse in a remote and unknown corner of Portugal
    • Kayak along the river and the fresh water lake at the accommodation
    • Surf lesson, rock climbing, beach time, t-shirt painting, boat trips and much more!
    • Enjoy delicious home-cooked food and local wine

On behalf of my family I'd like to say just how wonderful our time here was. We all loved every minute of it and we couldn't have ever designed a more perfect break for us. I wasn’t sure quite what to expect when I agreed to go on holiday with my family (including 3 younger brothers) at nearly 21 years old but I can 100% say that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I know that very few 17/18+ year olds would ever consider a holiday with their parents (I was definitely in the same boat for a few years) but this place is something else entirely. For the first time in years I was able to entirely forget about exams/university and just relax. The activities, the food, the location… Everything was amazing and the chilled atmosphere allowed me to be a part of both the ‘adult group’ and also to just be a kid again. Jonny, Vio and their team were amazing and I cannot thank them enough for an absolutely fantastic week!

Just back from our perfect family holiday in Portugal - genuinely the best we've ever had! With one 12 year old and one 16. 2 other families, who we didn't know but all got on great, a real communal and happy atmosphere. Hosts were so welcoming, with amazing and plentiful food from local chef. Activities were perfect, well pitched, with help from young volunteers - local walk, beach fun, rock climbing, surf lesson, cycling, power boat trip, canoeing down river. But, it was so much more than an activity holiday - if you want to forget any debates about what to do and who's cooking and trying to keep everyone happy and entertained whilst finding time to 'relax' then this is your dream holiday! Time for mums to share an evening glass of wine on the veranda in a cool breeze, hot outside showers powered by solar panels, idyllic setting on organic farm with great sunset views, hammocks abound to read in, fresh water lake on site with zip wire, table tennis, comfortable accommodation - family cottages. Fun party and pizza night! It was so special, bonding and we will always remember it! Thank you to Portual hosts and to KE.

This holiday was amazing, totally surpassing expectation. This was the first adventure holiday as a family but it did not disappoint. KE were great all during the planning and organising, information and booking details all great and nothing left to chance, always available when we needed to know anything. On arrival as planned we were met at the airport by the guys organising and we met some of the other people staying with us, all good and ready to go. The guys who run the accommodation and the events were amazing! Jon and Violetta very quickly introduced us to the other people, showed us our accommodation and made us feel immediately like we were at home, in fact home is exactly how it felt and we felt like an extended part of their family. The other guys in the group felt the same and this was the case throughout the holiday as the week went on we got to know each other better and better. The accommodation was great, very clean and everything you needed for this type of holiday - including no phone signal...which in our opinion helped everyone stop looking at screens and talk..brilliant! there was wifi, but even the kids in the group realised there is more to life :) The adventures were brilliant, so well organised and done so with fun and safety as a priority. You felt at all times that you could conquer any fears you had and Jon and Max gave you the right amount of encouragement to push you over the line should you have any doubts! Every day was arranged with so much ef

My thoughts are followed by my Daughter's: I am sure that you will not have a better family holiday anywhere else. There will be holidays with different activities. Perhaps there will be holidays with activities the equal of those we did here (though that will be hard). However I cannot imagine a holiday with a better place to stay. A farm sheltered in a beautiful valley with space for the kids to find some independence but still be safe. The micro-climate here means that the days were beautifully warm but the nights were cool enough to sleep (and the beds extremely comfortable). Our hosts Jonathan, Violeta and their team work so hard to make things look easy. They have created a special place where everyone is made to feel welcome in lovely accommodation with fabulous meals, generally a buffet with more than enough variety for the fussiest of eaters. The atmosphere generated meant all the different families gelled so well. Activities were run superbly with every child and adult catered for and able to succeed without any sense of pressure. Bring a sense of adventure and you will be richly rewarded! My Daughter's View (aged 11): I had the best holiday here. The Family are amazingly welcoming, the food delicious and the accommodation beautiful. On-site there is a lake where you could go anytime of the day. It has a deck to jump in from, paddle boards and a zipwire into the water. Also on-site are swings that are exciting and fun, not like ones in a playground. There are hammoc

This holiday was truly an unforgettable week that exceeded our family’s expectations. Our hosts Jon and Violetta are incredible people who clearly love what they do and enjoy sharing it with their guests. They are a joy to be around and they made all aspects of the holiday special. They (and their team of helpers) were all so welcoming and they were really great with all the kids. The farm accommodation is set in a valley nestled among cork trees. Each cottage is lovingly decorated with their own en suite. We barely used the en suite shower because there is the most awesome outdoor African shower with a sunny nature view. The kids loved the onsite “big swing” and the lake with its zipwire. The activities were all a lot of fun and challenged everyone to exactly the right level. Nobody felt held back or pushed too far. Jon went out of his way to look after everyone. With rock climbing, if you wanted to make it to the top, that was great. If you wanted to go up just a bit, that was fine too. We surfed, body boarded, kayaked, hiked and biked all on different days and everyone really enjoyed all the activities and they were well balanced with the needs of the group. Violetta and her team in the kitchen cooked up the most delicious meals with fresh ingredients and variety and plenty of it. Every meal was superb and made with attention to care and detail. By the end of the week, it felt like saying good-bye to family and there were more than a couple wet eyes. It was a wonderful exp

My family just returned from a trip we will always remember. The website made it look good, but our stay with Jon and Violeta greatly exceeded our expectations. We have two boys, ages 10 and 14. I chose the trip because one of the boys needs encouragement to participate in outdoor activities. My hope was that if he was part of a group and had structure, he would do it and enjoy it -- and that is exactly what happened. He scrambled up rocky cliffs, kayaked, surfed, rock climbed...all things he would have refused to do if it was just us. Our guides were wonderful at gauging our group's abilities and giving us some challenges while also making us feel safe and cared for. Tips for the trip: Bring good walking shoes, a beach towel, athletic clothes, LOTS of sunscreen and a good attitude and enthusiasm for adventure. Tell your office you will not be in touch as there isn't time for emailing and internet is limited -- plus you will want to disconnect with work and connect with the beautiful outdoors and your charming hosts. Also, the food is healthy and delicious -- some of the best food I've ever had while travelling. Can't say enough about this fabulous experience.
