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, table tennis, a zip line, kayaks on the lake (water-level dependent), 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. It’s a winning formula.

Itinerary

Our holiday starts at our rural guesthouse/villa accommodation just north of Sagres on the very southern tip of the Algarve. A single transfer is provided from Faro Airport. We have a late lunch before exploring the delightful property and surroundings. It is located next to a fresh water lake which is perfect for an afternoon swim and for the children to get to know each other. This evening we have the first of our delicious home cooked dinners on the veranda overlooking the surrounding cork forest.

Please note that the order of activities during the week will change depending on the weather conditions and the group. The water levels in the lake on the property will vary between seasons and years, with it sometimes being too low for swimming in.

Our first day in this little corner of paradise we head to the sunny beach. This nearby beach is perfect for some swimming, body boarding and beach games. If you don't wish to participant with the children running along the beach and the water inspired fun, then adults can unwind from the worries works and take a rest under a shady umbrella with the new book. We return to the base for a swim in the lake and then drinks on the deck, a perfect day to start the holiday. On the property there is also zip wire over the lake and a high swing that the kids will enjoy. Children can spend endless time here, swimming and enjoying adventuring around the lake.

This morning we try our hand at some rock climbing. We transfer to a nearby crag (20 minutes) which is bolted. We are supplied with our safety equipment and our leader will give us instruction. There are several routes on the crag from easy to moderate. Usually groups thoroughly delight in this morning on the rock and find much satisfaction from achieving the top of the crag. On the way back we visit THE BEST ice cream shop in the whole of Portugal! After lunch we go to the beach, which is around 5km from our accommodation. A couple of hours at the beach, swimming, reading, body boarding, snorkelling, or generally messing around in the sand. We return to our accommodation and enjoy another fabulous home cooked dinner and some wine on the decking, before popping some marshmallows on sticks and sitting around the fire before bed.

Today we enjoy an outing on the bikes. Depending on the level of the group and the weather we have a few choices of routes. The simplest option is to follow the pretty river down to the coast. The route is picturesque and we can relax and take our time. A full day out involves a lovely 25km to the Point and then in the town of Sagres. The vast sea here is a stunning aquamarine colour with an immense horizon. The beaches are clean and sandy and there is always plenty of opportunity for swimming. We return to our accommodation. In the warmth of the evening we might sit around the African inspired fire pit and maybe enjoy a seafood barbecue or traditional Paella under the enormous sky of stars.

Today our time is spent learning how to surf. We have a full day with the surf boards and instructor. Our lesson starts on the beach as we learn the techniques of jumping on the board in preparation for the waves. After we have got the hang of it we are try it on the water. The chosen beach for our surfing should have waves for a beginner/improvers level and it is likely that by the end of our session we should all be able to stand up on the boards! We have our picnic lunch on the beach before trying again on the boards. Learning to surf is great fun and a thoroughly good work out as well. By the end of the day we will be happy, tired and looking forward to our dinner and a glass of wine! In the evening we go to see the sunset at Cabo de San Vicente, Europe's most southwestern point. This is a spectacular spot, a barren headland, with steep cliffs and a small red lighthouse. This is an iconic place throughout history, for its various fortifications and the last sighting of land for the famous Portuguese explorers travelling the seas in the 15th & 16th centuries.

For kids and adults alike it's always fun to make your own t-shirt. There are plenty of different design and pattern ideas, and we can be creative around the big table in the cool of the veranda this morning. Our hosts, and their children have lots of experience with T-shirt painting and will be on hand to give helpful tips. We have the afternoon free. There is an option to take a boat trip from Sagres along the coast. We will stop for a swim and if we are lucky we might even see dolphins playing in the surf. Alternatively we can stay at the property and maybe have an archery or table tennis competition with our fellow holidaymakers.

Our last day in this little corner of paradise we travel up the west coast (45minutes) and take to the water and paddle in our 2 man sea kayaks along the river estuary. We start in a small, typically Portuguese village and travel down to the sea. It is a leisurely paddle of just 3km. On arrival at the sea we have our picnic lunch on the sandy beach and have some time here before paddling back. We also make some time to visit a great cake shop for a traditional sweet treat after our kayaking fun. We return to our base and have some time to relax, or if you are a child, time to run around before dinner. Tonight, on our final night here in Portugal, is pizza night, and we get to taste the heavenly organic pizzas made in the wood fired hand built oven.

TRAVEL TO YOUR DESTINATION

In some cases you may choose to take a ferry and/or train to your holiday start and end destination. Please see further information on Travelling by Train.

If flying from the UK there are low cost airlines available to the start and from the end of your holiday.

To benefit from full financial protection, ease your holiday planning, and avoid dealing with airlines, we can book scheduled flights from the UK as part of a flight inclusive package. Scheduled flights are usually more expensive that low cost alternatives, however potentially less stressful if your flight is cancelled or delayed. If you book flights through KE Adventure Travel we will offset the carbon of your flight.

The group will meet at the accommodation near Sagres, Algarve.

A single transfer (1hr 30mins) is provided from Faro Airport to the accommodation at 12 midday of Day 1 the Land Only itinerary.

A money-saving tip is to fly on Friday and overnight in Faro, returning to the airport on Saturday for the transfer.

On the last day of the Land Only itinerary, there will be a single transfer to Faro Airport for flights departing at the earliest at approximately 1100.

There is a certain degree of flexibility with the transfer time depending on the best time for the flights of the group members, however everyone needs to leave the property by 1100.

Those with later departures can take this transfer and have lunch in Faro (5mins in a taxi), or take a trip to one of the islands. There is baggage storage at the airport.

Anyone may join the group transfers by prior arrangement. Travelling as a group or on public transport saves energy. If this is not practical, or you have an earlier flight, we can provide private transfers at an additional cost.


Hotel contact details and an emergency number will be provided with your booking confirmation.

All meals are included except for 1 lunch and 1 evening meal. This allows you to experience one of the local restaurants.

Water is drinkable from the taps on this holiday. Please fill your personal bottles for your day in the morning. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

The food on this holiday which comes out of the kitchen of the accommodation is excellent. It is traditional, modern, tasty, homecooked and fabulous. Various plates and bowls of different foods are laid out and we help ourselves buffet style – which is always a hit for children.

Breakfast is always good with lots of options of bread, porridge, eggs, bacon and croissants. Lunch we take with us in picnic form and eat between activities. Dinner is a big affair and is always a highlight and is eaten on the big table on the breezy veranda. Dishes vary from chicken, curry, burgers, spag bol, tuna, sweetcorn, salads, On warm summer evenings we can sit around the African inspired fire pit, enjoying a seafood barbecue or a traditional Paella underneath the fabulous starlit sky. Another night we have pizzas made in the wood fired, hand built oven.

A note from your hosts: We love food; good food is one of our greatest pleasures in life. We believe that the better, the fresher, the more naturally produced the original products are, the higher the quality of the meals we serve. We strive to produce foods here on the farm that are in harmony with the environment; no pesticides or un-organic fertilisers. Planting our veggie garden is a labour of love, and the crunchy salad straight from the garden is credit to this. We believe local is great and it's this greatness we search for when we visit shops and markets and our own pantry to produce meals for our guests. Herbs, spices, fresh food and an inspiration to cook means that the food always goes down a hit. We cook delicately spiced meat dishes, exotic vegetarian meals, tasty vegan and gluten-free feasts - Violeta can make you something special, whatever your needs and desires. A tasty surprise for us this winter was the discovery that our farm produces an array of the most incredible edible mushrooms. Please inform us of any dietary requirements on booking.

Whilst we can cater for vegetarians, albeit sometimes with a more limited choice, we cannot always provide special diets.  Due to the nature of some of the trips that we operate and the countries in which we operate them, it can be very hard (and sometimes impossible) to cater for a wide range of dietary choices and you may have to supplement your diet with food/snacks from home.  If you have specific dietary requirements please do speak to our sales team and they will be able to advise you whether or not we will be able to offer your specific choice.  Please note that we are unable to provide separate menus and cannot accept liability for any problems arising from special dietary requirements or intolerances.

Our private accommodation is run by family friendly hosts, who also have children of their own who participate in some of the activities. It is a sustainable farm of around 46 hectares, hidden away from the main stream and located close to the most south western point of Portugal (Cabo de San Vincente) in the Algarve. It is surrounded by rivers, dams, indigenous cork forest and mountains, and 5km from the beach. There is a large fresh water lake for swimming in. The levels in the lake will depend on rainfall, so it can sometimes be too low for swimming. The accommodation is off grid and is all electricity comes from solar power. The rooms only have 12V, enough for the lights. The main room has 220V for charging equipment.

In the main building there are a number of areas for relaxing in including the lounge with fireplace and cosy seating. Meals are taken in the dining area which has a large covered deck/veranda, getting the morning sun and is candle lit at night.

In addition to the main building, there are several individual buildings for accommodation, all set amongst the cork forest with hammocks slung between the trees and a variety of fruit trees and vines. There are 5-6 twin/double/triple and family en suite bedrooms. Please contact the KE office if you have specific rooming requirements. We try to ensure that everyone is happy with the rooming and will do our best to arrange this.

Your hosts at the accommodation will lead you on the majority of the activities. They are fully qualified leaders/instructors. Where necessary for certain activities you will have additional specialised instructors.

Approximately €250 per family (2 adults and 2 children) will be plenty for the non-included meals, miscellaneous expenses, tips, drinks, snacks, souvenirs etc. This figure does also not take into account optional activities or alcoholic beverages. Some wine is included with dinners and other drinks can be paid for directly at the end of the week. Cash can be withdrawn from ATMs at Faro Airport and locally. If you are intending to buy expensive souvenirs, you should budget accordingly (credit cards can be useful in this respect).

Optional Activities:

Please note that these prices are correct at time of writing, but are subject to change without warning. All prices are in Euro's. Optional activities taken outside the KE holiday are at your own risk.

Boat trip 1hr 30mins: €25 per adult, €20 per child 

 

Tipping is the accepted way of saying ‘thank you’ for good service. It is important to remember that tipping is voluntary and should be dependent on good service. We estimate around £10 per family member.

For this holiday you should take one piece of luggage and a daypack. Luggage with wheels is useful for this holiday. For international flights please check your baggage allowance with your airline.

For each holiday there is a minimum number of participants required to enable it to go ahead. Once the minimum number is reached, the trip status will change from 'Available' to 'Guaranteed to run'. You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table.

Travelling with children aged 17yrs and under, who are not with their parent or legal guardian - Portugal

Children aged 17 and under travelling to Portugal alone or in the company of a person who is not their parent or legal guardian, must either:

  • be met at the airport or point of entry by their parent or guardian, or
  • carry a letter of authorisation to travel from their parent or guardian. The letter should name the adult in Portugal who will be responsible for them during their stay and the identification and contacts details of the parent or guardian.

If you have a severe allergy please inform the KE office before you travel. We will do all we can to help, but we cannot guarantee an allergy free environment on KE trips. You will need to carry your own treatment for the allergy with you, as 'adrenaline auto-injectors' are not carried as standard by KE leaders and staff. You should inform your leader on arrival of your allergy, and let them know where you keep your adrenaline pen.

Vaccinations

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations.

GHIC / Medical cover

UK residents should carry a free Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). This entitles you to state provided medical treatment when you're visiting an EU country or Switzerland. This is not a substitute for medical travel insurance which is vital when travelling overseas.

The currency for part or all of this holiday is the Euro.

In the summer months the climate in this part of Portugal are reasonably stable. We can expect temperatures between 16-35 degree Celsius. In many of the summer months there is a wind which brings the temperature down a lot. As a general rule there is little rainfall in the summer months (1 or 2 days per month).  We should look forward to long days of sun and warm evenings. The accommodation is situated in a little valley and has it's own micro climate, which cools down at night to a prefect sleeping temperature in the summer holiday months.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office's ‘Travel Aware campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas. The 'Travel Aware' website provides a single, authoritative source of advice for all kinds of travellers and we recommend that prior to travel, all KE clients visit the official UK Government website at travelaware.campaign.gov.uk and read the FCDO Travel Advice for their chosen destination. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCDO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCDO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

KE do not encourage the use of single use plastic items. We are ensuring that our agents all over the world are working together to reduce the problem and educate those around them. We are leading by example in our KE office by reducing our plastic use.

We welcome all family dynamics and we will try to accommodate you in the roomings of your choice. The only stipulation for joining a family group holiday is that 1 party member is 18yrs or under, and they are accompanied by an adult. An average group size is around 10 members in total. Further general information and FAQ's are available here: KE Family Adventure Holidays general information.

It is an essential condition of joining a holiday with KE Adventure Travel that you have a valid travel insurance policy to cover the cost of medical treatment and to protect the value of your holiday in the event of cancellation.  When taking out insurance please ensure the policy you choose covers you for the activities and altitude included in your itinerary.

Great ★★★★★

The trip was great. We felt more like we were staying with friends than in a vacation home. Everything was fantastic. Jonathan and Violetta are very kind people. The activities were tailored to our needs and varied. Violetta is a great cook. It was exceptionally beautiful, thank you!

Wonderful ★★★★★

We had a lovely relaxing stay at Jonathan and Violetta’s amazing eco rustic paradise. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts; food was plentiful and excellent. All done with a smile. Activities great fun and pitched perfectly for all abilities. Extra care provided for the less able, whilst challenging for the more sporty amongst us. One of our best holidays ever!

By Rachel Oxford | 08 August 2022

Wow, what fun, ★★★★★

We have just returned from our holiday at Aqua-Ventura that as a family we will always remember as the best and most exciting time together. Jonny and Violetta, along with their family and volunteers, are the most amazing hosts and fun people to be with. Jonny’s skill, enthusiasm and expertise ensure that whatever your ability you will get the best out of each day. We were challenged to try new activities in a safe but exciting way, building confidence as the week progressed. Violetta’s cook ing is fantastic, catering for all tastes. She certainly knows what adults and children enjoy. Not only is she a great cook, she knows how to throw a party, dance and involve everyone. This is a truly magical place for excitement and relaxation in a beautiful unspoilt part of Portugal where there are plenty of opportunities for adults and children to make new friends. Our grandchildren loved the freedom to explore the farm often accompanied by the most friendly dogs you could ever meet. It’s easy to see why people return. Sophia 11yrs - I will never forget this experience, everyone there is so lovely. Everyone should experience it at least once in their lifetime. Elizabeth 8 yrs - it was very exciting and every day was an adventure. Chocolate and Alana are such friendly dogs who I loved playing with. John and Carolyn Carpenter

Perfect family adventure holiday ★★★★★

July 2022 First trip after the Covid. Great group of random 4 single and multi parent families from Ireland, Scotland and Israel. For two of the families this was a return visit to this guest house. Wonderful hosts - Violeta and Jonathan - warm, welcome, caring, teaching. Excellent food fitting both kids and adults with plenty of local fruits and vegetables. No AC but great Atlantic breeze cools down the evenings and nights. Exciting and frequently challenging daily adventures of ocean surfing, climbing, biking, hiking, kayaking. Always super-safe, under professional patient guidance of Jonathan and his assistants who were making sure everyone feels confident and enjoys to the maximum. Relaxing evenings at the farm with great local wine and food, interesting multi National crowd: chatting, playing games, listening to music, playing ping pong, dancing. Will definitely return!

Family adventure ★★★★★

Our family visited Jonny and Violetta’s farmhouse in July this year for a “Family Adventure” week. First things first. This is an amazing family holiday. Ten out of ten. We have travelled far and wide with our 2 children (aged 10 and 13) and have experienced many types of holidays but we all wholeheartedly agreed that our week in the Western Algarve with was one of the best, if not the best of them all. It really deserves every possible accolade for providing an action packed week, with Jo nny and his son Dylan and nephew Pau, constructively challenging the children (and adults!) to a wide variety of daily activities followed by an evening of wonderful food and hospitality served up by Violeta and her mother. This is a family run affair, which makes the holiday all the more special as you really feel you are welcomed into their home as opposed to some random holiday accommodation. If Jonny and Violeta could bottle the secret sauce in arranging this type of holiday and replicate it throughout Europe, I’m sure they’d be very wealthy people. But this is not the essence of what they are about. They are caring family-minded people, who are very tuned into their mental well-being, their environmental impact and really understand the finer details which make a family holiday really special. Indeed, I believe the family adventure week is currently something which they only offer for a small number of weeks of the year so by the end of our week we really felt one of the lucky ones who were fortunate enough to experience a type of holiday which they strongly advocate (without pushing it down your throat). This was our first time and we really didn’t know what to expect but we’ll be definitely back for another week. Indeed, it is very apparent from some of the other guests who we met that most of their clientele are repeat guests who have attended on multiple occasions. Our experience was also definitely made all the better by enjoying the company of like-minded guests who were happy to have a couple of beers or enjoy a glass of wine after a hard day surfing or rock-climbing or kayaking. A few things to keep in mind before choosing this holiday - if the items below are critical to your holiday enjoyment, this is not the holiday for you: Lounging by the pool: Whereas there was always a couple of hours each day of relaxation (typically at a beautiful beach), you are pretty much on the go from 10am to 5pm each day. Hotel luxuries: the accommodation has all you need but at the same time would not be luxurious. You just need to approach it with a positive mindset and recognise that you’re staying in a remote farmhouse which has very strong eco-credentials. Digital access: for us, the limited connectivity was a real bonus as opposed to being an issue. The week was a real digital detox for the children and whereas they could get WiFi access in the lounge room, there was so much going on that they hardly missed their phones or consoles. Remote location: the farmhouse is quite remote so walking to the nearest village for a change of scenery is not really an option. Again, we didn’t find this an issue as the scenery at the farmhouse is stunning and we were only more than happy to wind down on the veranda with the other guests after a nice shower and freshen-up. All-in-all, this is a really special holiday and we felt a little melancholic leaving the farmhouse, even though we were heading on to the Eastern Algarve for the second week of our holiday. Our 2 boys were particularly sad to be leaving Dylan and Pau who provided hours of entertainment to the children (from swimming in the pool, to card games to treasure hunts to ping-pong to disco dancing to treasure hunts….). Hats off to Jonny, Violeta and the family, they have really nailed this type of holiday. It’s just a shame it’s not available in other parts of the Mediterranean. Just means we’ll have to go back for more!

We were challenged to try new activities in a safe but exciting way, building confidence as the week progressed. Violetta’s cook ing is fantastic, catering for all tastes. She certainly knows what adults and children enjoy. Not only is she a great cook, she knows how to throw a party, dance and involve everyone. This is a truly magical place for excitement and relaxation in a beautiful unspoilt part of Portugal where there are plenty of opportunities for adults and children to make new friends. Our grandchildren loved the freedom to explore the farm often accompanied by the most friendly dogs you could ever meet. It’s easy to see why people return. Sophia 11yrs - I will never forget this experience, everyone there is so lovely. Everyone should experience it at least once in their lifetime. Elizabeth 8 yrs - it was very exciting and every day was an adventure. Chocolate and Alana are such friendly dogs who I loved playing with. John and Carolyn Carpenter

Perfect family adventure holiday
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
July 2022 First trip after the Covid. Great group of random 4 single and multi parent families from Ireland, Scotland and Israel. For two of the families this was a return visit to this guest house. Wonderful hosts - Violeta and Jonathan - warm, welcome, caring, teaching. Excellent food fitting both kids and adults with plenty of local fruits and vegetables. No AC but great Atlantic breeze cools down the evenings and nights. Exciting and frequently challenging daily adventures of ocean surfing, climbing, biking, hiking, kayaking. Always super-safe, under professional patient guidance of Jonathan and his assistants who were making sure everyone feels confident and enjoys to the maximum. Relaxing evenings at the farm with great local wine and food, interesting multi National crowd: chatting, playing games, listening to music, playing ping pong, dancing. Will definitely return!

Family adventure
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Our family visited Jonny and Violetta’s farmhouse in July this year for a “Family Adventure” week. First things first. This is an amazing family holiday. Ten out of ten. We have travelled far and wide with our 2 children (aged 10 and 13) and have experienced many types of holidays but we all wholeheartedly agreed that our week in the Western Algarve with was one of the best, if not the best of them all. It really deserves every possible accolade for providing an action packed week, with Jo nny and his son Dylan and nephew Pau, constructively challenging the children (and adults!) to a wide variety of daily activities followed by an evening of wonderful food and hospitality served up by Violeta and her mother. This is a family run affair, which makes the holiday all the more special as you really feel you are welcomed into their home as opposed to some random holiday accommodation. If Jonny and Violeta could bottle the secret sauce in arranging this type of holiday and replicate it throughout Europe, I’m sure they’d be very wealthy people. But this is not the essence of what they are about. They are caring family-minded people, who are very tuned into their mental well-being, their environmental impact and really understand the finer details which make a family holiday really special. Indeed, I believe the family adventure week is currently something which they only offer for a small number of weeks of the year so by the end of our week we really felt one of the lucky ones who were fortunate enough to experience a type of holiday which they strongly advocate (without pushing it down your throat). This was our first time and we really didn’t know what to expect but we’ll be definitely back for another week. Indeed, it is very apparent from some of the other guests who we met that most of their clientele are repeat guests who have attended on multiple occasions. Our experience was also definitely made all the better by enjoying the company of like-minded guests who were happy to have a couple of beers or enjoy a glass of wine after a hard day surfing or rock-climbing or kayaking. A few things to keep in mind before choosing this holiday - if the items below are critical to your holiday enjoyment, this is not the holiday for you: Lounging by the pool: Whereas there was always a couple of hours each day of relaxation (typically at a beautiful beach), you are pretty much on the go from 10am to 5pm each day. Hotel luxuries: the accommodation has all you need but at the same time would not be luxurious. You just need to approach it with a positive mindset and recognise that you’re staying in a remote farmhouse which has very strong eco-credentials. Digital access: for us, the limited connectivity was a real bonus as opposed to being an issue. The week was a real digital detox for the children and whereas they could get WiFi access in the lounge room, there was so much going on that they hardly missed their phones or consoles. Remote location: the farmhouse is quite remote so walking to the nearest village for a change of scenery is not really an option. Again, we didn’t find this an issue as the scenery at the farmhouse is stunning and we were only more than happy to wind down on the veranda with the other guests after a nice shower and freshen-up. All-in-all, this is a really special holiday and we felt a little melancholic leaving the farmhouse, even though we were heading on to the Eastern Algarve for the second week of our holiday. Our 2 boys were particularly sad to be leaving Dylan and Pau who provided hours of entertainment to the children (from swimming in the pool, to card games to treasure hunts to ping-pong to disco dancing to treasure hunts….). Hats off to Jonny, Violeta and the family, they have really nailed this type of holiday. It’s just a shame it’s not available in other parts of the Mediterranean. Just means we’ll have to go back for more!

Really fun family week
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

As a single parent, I was nervous about going on this trip but needn't have worried: I wasn't the only single parent and the hosts are so welcoming, warm and inclusive. The kids formed a tribe with the others as soon as we arrived, so their entertainment was pretty much taken out of my hands. We had a relaxing week, tried some activities we wouldn't have otherwise and were really well looked after. Tip: take a hoodie! we went in late July and the weather was cool and breezy.

Fantastic
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We spent a week here in July/August 2019 with our children aged 9 and 11, and it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The activities were great, the food was outstanding but the real key was the passion and enthusiasm of the hosts, and the positive energy that ran through the whole week. There was always somebody happy to talk to/play with the kids so the adults could totally relax (or could play too!). We have returned home refreshed, inspired and hoping for another trip next year!

A unique experience and such great fun
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We really had no idea what we were getting ourselves into, but this was one of the best holidays ever - totally not a chilled, relaxing holiday but so much fun! Violeta and Jonathon make an awesome team along with their enthusiastic, helpful and tolerant volunteers. Our accommodation was perfect; quirky with everything we needed. The food was sensational (best food ever on a holiday) using lots of homegrown, seasonal produce. As a vegan family we didn’t quite know what to expect but Violeta ca ters for everyone – she is amazing #veganheaven #vegetarianheaven #fishloverheaven #meatloverheaven – everyone loved the food. And after a day of adventure it was delightful to sit and read on the veranda listening to Violeta and her helpers in the kitchen working away to their eclectic and perfect music choices. The activities were brilliant, and our favourites were cycling, kayaking, bodyboarding and hiking as well as chilling on the beach, eating ice-cream and the speedboat trip. The beauty of this holiday was the opportunity to be active and try new activities but with everything organised to perfection. Jonathon was amazing, knowledgeable, experienced and encouraging – everything was sorted for you timings, transport, equipment, lessons, lunch. Jonathon had everything arranged spot on each day and gave. This holiday was a unique experience and such great fun….but it was only after the holiday ended that we realised how fantastic and unforgettable it really was.

Best holiday experience ever
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
When my mum told me that we were going on holiday I didn't know what to expect. I actually was quite disappointed that I would be missing meet ups with friends right after school ended. Then we got there and I found the giant swing and lake. I realised the atmosphere was far more relaxed than I had initially anticipated and I met all of the other kids there. Everyone was really friendly and the food was great. On the first day we went surfing. I had tried it previously and not enjoyed it very mu ch however this time, it was amazing. I was able to stand up and really felt like I could've done it all day. The next day was climbing and I did far better than ji had expected. (I'll still need to practice though, didn't get right to the top). The food was delicious and we were able to taste the amazing fruits and veg from the farm. We also were able to try loads of activities all while becoming more familiar with the sea. I even made a flute on Wednesday and was able to try and play it.. will definitely need some improvement though. Overall it was the most enjoyable experience I've had and I will certainly want to return in the future, perhaps on holiday or as a volunteer. They were amazing and we were able to get a great bank of photos thanks to Alex. Deserves 6/5 stars. Tom Cox, 15.

A truly special holiday made by special people
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Lots of wonderful activities, super food and a beautiful setting. Our children were always engaged, active and challenged by new things and made lots of friends. The adults had as much fun as the kids. John, Violet and the whole team involved made super hosts - a real sense of energy, warmth and passion for what they do. An awesome week away.

Amazing family holiday
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We have just got back from a week in Portugal, staying with Jonathan and Violeta at their amazing home. We were made to feel part of the family. The accommodation was lovely, the food out of this world and the activities great fun. The kids (and adults alike) had an absolute ball! I would definitely recommend this holiday. Thank you.

Brilliant - especially for late teens/young adults in family
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
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 sam e 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!

Amazing, active and relaxing family holiday with teenagers! Food and hosts fab !
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
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 a ctivity 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.

Amazing family adventure with an amazing group in a prefect location
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
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 th e 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 efficiency but with the feeling that you were very much on holiday and there to relax as much as you could, each journey back home was done via an ice cream or cake shop - perfect! Then there was the food.....WOW, each and every day was a culinary delight, Violleta and Katherine each day served up a delicious array of food that left everyone going back for seconds, using all the fresh ingredients from their own land. The only disappointment was when you knew that one night you went out to a local restaurant, not because the restaurant food wasn't great (it was by the way & again organised for you :)) but because you may be missing out....the final night Pizza party was great fun, and a wood fired Pizza oven is something to behold! In summary, this was a brilliant holiday organised at a perfect location by great people who want to make your holiday very special and make all the extra efforts for you and your family to make the very most of the time together. Brilliant!

You will not want to leave!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
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 beautiful ly 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 hammocks everywhere to go and chill and there is an outdoor African shower which is absolutely stunning. The activities are run by Jonathan who is really helpful and fun. My favorites were rock climbing and body boarding where he helped us improve and conquer any boundaries. This is a holiday I will never forget.

An unforgettable outstanding week!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
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 experience meeting the other families and their children. I could not recommend this holiday more highly. Hints/Tips: evenings can be cool and breezy so bring enough long sleeves which I didn't! The evening watching the sunset is colder than you'd expect and the rocks are a pain in the backside. I'd bring something soft to sit on like a beach towel next time.

Wonderful family time
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
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 wo uld 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.
