Wow, I love the look of this place; just wish I could pack my bags and head there tomorrow. Tipping Tipis offer two 6 metre tipis on their 8 acre quinta in central Portugal. This brand new site opens in June 2013 and offers an ‘off the grid’ experience with its solar panels, local spring water for drinking and well water for washing.
The tipis come with a double bed with organic cotton sheets and a handmade quilt – a single and camp bed are also available. Both tipis have their own private shower and composting toilet. There is a large communal kitchen, lounge area plus pizza oven and bbq. You are welcome to help yourself to organic vegetables from the garden.
This area has so much to offer with its nature reserves, markets and river beaches. There’s mountain biking, horse riding and climbing school all in the locality. There is even a Geopark where you can discover tribolite fossils and cool off in a granite swimming pool.
Tipping Tipi’s has an interesting charging policy where a minimum donation of 35 euros a night for 7 nights or 40 euros per night for a minimum of three nights is asked for. The plan is to re-invest donations into developing this off-the-grid experience.
Escape to Carmarthenshire, west Wales this October half term for a luxurious child-friendly, sustainable camping experience. Larkhill Tipis offers five different nomadic camping experiences: the Alachigh is the most luxurious tent originating from Northern Iran; set on the edge of a four acre woodland are two different types of yurts (one Mongolian/one Kazakhastan/Uzbekistan) and surrounded by a flower meadow is a tipi and luvuu used by the Sami people in northern Scandinavia. In the grounds there is a woodland park with swings and a slide. Stay warm with a woodburning stove, blankets, mats and cushions.
What to do: Located half an hour from Cardigan Bay’s coastline with sandy beaches plus horse riding, fishing go karts, a butterfly farm, steam railways, castles and museums in the surrounding area.
Larkhill Tipis has a fair pricing policy with one rate all year round – prices are not increased during school holidays. Nightly rates start from £60 for the tipi, £70 for the yurt and £80 for the Alachigh.
