A small-scale organic farmstead nestled between the mountains and beaches of the Algarve
Tucked between the hills of Monchique and the rustic beaches of the Algarve lies this eco-friendly farm. It started as a dream of a group of friends to start a farmstead with lodging. Driven by permaculture principles and a passion for living a sustainable lifestyle where nature sets the pace, they envisioned The Lemon Lodge.
Entirely off-grid, the lodge is powered by solar energy and the water is pumped from their own wells. The food gardens supply organic ingredients. Rural, simple and unsophisticated, while beautifully designed and decorated in tune with its surroundings – you will feel right at home.
Location: Nestled between the mountains and beach of the Algarve, Aljezur, close to the rugged beaches, renowned surf spots and historical hike routes
Rooms: 2 suites for two to four people respectively and a newly added safari tent for two
Highlights: Discover every corner of the property, the gardens, chicken, horses and the beautiful yoga shala overlooking the mountain valley
The feel: Rural and simple, yet beautifully decorated in tune with its surroundings – luxury barefoot living
Not to be missed: The wood-fired sauna with a natural plunge pool and ice bath (one of the owners is a certified Wim Hof instructor).
