And, well, let’s face it, live out your childhood dreams…


Sonya and Dave Hemminga moved with their 3-year old, Jip, from Amsterdam to this beautiful plot of land in the southwest of Portugal in 2013. After a whole lot of hard work and a steep learning curve, they created a dream escape space. Their decision to make this life change was a dramatic one; from a bustling city-life to the rural with no gardening experience to speak of – the land needed serious work, the house was a ruin, not to mention there was no electricity or running water.



They chose a nature-friendly way of living, so enter compost-toilet, solar panels, water pump and lots of patience. Especially to work the land, and turn it into a self-sufficient place with a vegetable garden, a yurt as a house and an eco-campsite for guests.


Fast forward to 2018. Sonya and Dave now also have a toddler, Flint, and dogs, cats and chickens running around. They found a third partner to run Into the Wild Algarve with them, Petra Mijnders, and together they offer a small but exquisite choice of tents to stay in; 2 Tipis, a Safari tent and a Bell tent, as well as the amazing Treehouse. Volunteers help with taking care of the campsite, the animals and the garden, learning a sustainable manner of working the land.



Step into the wild Algarve. Step into a life less complicated and spend your next holiday in the most magical treehouse… AND save 10% with the ILtS discount code!
