THE BEST OF TWO WORLDS

Only 25 km from Vila Nova de Milfontes beach, Figueirinha Ecoturismo is a place of absolute tranquility in a valley settled among oak and olive trees. Here its easy to wander between land and sea, between sand and fields covered with ferns and rockrose flowers.

ECOTOURISM

The search for sustainability is a work in progress at Figueirinha Ecoturismo. The green vegetable garden growing free of chemicals, the biological swimming pool, the compost and the solar power are the first steps on the pursuit of life that respects nature and defends the environment.

SWEET DREAMS

The access to the property and the garden is through a wrought iron gate designed by a friend of the family (Mário). On the right side, facing south is the century-old house where the owners of the hill live and where the family room is.

LIVING

A community kitchen was built around the ancient wooden oven, where in the old days people from the valley used to bake bread. Whoever then the Portuguese to develop human relationships around a great plate of food?

FIGUEIRINHA ECOSYSTEM

We grow a biological vegetable garden for our own consumption. Cabbages, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, leaks, beets, onions, courgettes are a few examples of what we have in our land, depending of course on the season.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND US

Located only 25 km from Vila Nova de Milfontes and from Vicentina Coast, Figueirinha Ecoturismo is part of Odemira region and Relíquias administration. The closest village, Monte da Estrada, is distant 2.8 km on a dirt road.

"The friendliness of the hosts and the warmth with which they welcome guests, as if we were really at home. Everything is unique and special, from breakfast including orange juice and jam made with fruit harvested at the farm, to the appreciation of what it is environmentally friendly and in harmony with nature even indoors (the beautiful bathroom) and in the very original tents. The room was always at a perfect temperature, the orientation allowed perfect natural light and the bed was quite comfortable. Paula was also careful to explain the route in advance and even call to make sure we arrived well. A very positive and enjoyable experience!"

Hiking Trails

Among cork and olive trees we have marked two walking trails to discover this still pure and beautiful landscape. Also Rota Vicentina Association has marked a hiking trail that one can choose from 6, 8 to 13 km that leads to the hill where a small chapel calls for worship to Nª Senhora das Neves. Here one can have a magnificent view from 277 meters high. In São Luís (12 km) the hikers can catch the Historical Path and in Vila Nova de Milfontes (25 km) the Fishermens Trail, both part of the hiking trails also developed by the association.

Horse Riding

Monte da Barbanxa only 2 km from São Luís and 10 km from Figueirinha Ecoturismo, offer several experiences even to the less experienced. Rides, advanced riding lessons, therapeutic riding and pony lessons for the smaller crowd. If you wish we can help you organize your visit.

Cycling

Besides the walking trails marked by Figueirinha Ecoturismo that can be also be done by bike, there are a number of dirt roads that one can use to discover the region. For those who prefer a bigger challenge we recommend Rota Vicentina off road cycling trails, one of which has a higher degree of difficulty and goes by our rural tourism, where one can also find a Bike Station, and through Nª Senhora das Neves.

Canoeing down river Mira

Canoeing or kayak down river Mira is an experience not to be missed for those who are visiting the SW of Portugal. Ecotrails and Figueirinha Ecoturismo invite you to come and visit the tranquil waters of the Mira, experience its biodiversity and discover the different scenarios that vary according to the tides. From the river estuary in Vila Nova de Milfontes to Odemira or Casa Branca, an old wheat shipment wharf.
