Besides practising yoga at the yoga-yurt or plunging in our pool, there are many things you can do around our eco-lodge. Val Verde is surrounded by many hiking trails like the well-known long distance trail rota Vicentina. The area around the lodge is -besides walking- also great for mountain biking or horse riding. We are close to both South- and West coast beaches, so if you like to go for a surf, there is always a surf spot nearby that works. Its beautiful to walk over the cliffs with stunning views of the wild west coast or just relax at the tranquil south coast beaches. When you drive just past Sagres at 20 minutes drive, you have reached the southwest end of Europe; you´re at Cabo de San Vicente– the starting point of rota Vicentina. Just half an hour drive from Val Verde is harbour-town Lagos with the old city centre that’s worth a visit, or Aljezur with its castle and some beautiful beaches like Monte Clerico beach nearby. Last but not least we have the highest mountain of the Algarve Monchique (902 meter) around the corner, where you can visit the hot springs, enjoy the panorama or go chasing one of the many hidden waterfalls in the area.
