Finding nudist seclusion in Alentejo, Portugal

August 25, 2019

If you’ve ever fancied real seclusion, away from towns and even nearby neighbours, then Sal and Andy’s smallholding in Alentejo, Portugal is the place to go. I have been there and I can recommend it!

Andy and Sal are an easy-going nudist couple who live some way off the nearest paved road in an area which is a designated dark sky area, there are so few artificial lights nearby. If you are a nudist astronomer or naturalist, you will be in heaven. (Perhaps you’d like to do wild boar hunting too, in season?)

They are aiming for as much self-sufficiency as possible. They are developing their own land for food growing and they produce all their own electricity, mostly solar. Water is from their own boreholes and the new pool is a self-cleaning biological design. They have guests staying in their newly finished guest room, with its own shower and toilet, and they are aiming to increase the number of available rooms to three in the next year or two. There is also a guest lounge. The accommodation comes with breakfast. and other meals supplied on request. There are many restaurants in neighbouring villages.

You’ll really need a car to get there. It’s about two and a half hours drive from Faro airport, about two hours from Lisbon. There are interesting sights to be seen within reasonable driving distance, like the Alqueva barrage and historic Evora, a world heritage site. Expect some minor inconveniences, like having to charge your phone in the middle of the day, when there is enough solar power. But that’s more than compensated by the freedom to do your own thing nude.

Apartments in Costa Calma, Fuerteventura

August 17, 2019


Fuerteventura is one of the two desert islands in the Canaries chain, and is a popular place with naturists on account of its many naturist beaches and year-round sunny but moderate climate. Karie has a villa with three independent apartments in Costa Calma, named for its shelter from the wind, close to the best naturist beaches in Fuerteventura.

The villa provides accommodation for groups of 2 to 22 guests. A large swimming pool is surrounded by sun terraces. There is a bar which can be fully stocked on request for groups. A large BBQ area and a pagoda decking are available for alfresco eating. The Balinese style bed can accommodate many people for daytime snoozing.

The Airport is just fifty minutes away and the owner can organise transfers or, if you want to explore the Island, a hire car. The naturist beaches are within ten minutes walk.

There are shops, bars, restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance too.

For further information, and pictures of the apartments, see the villa web site.

Clothing optional / Naturist B&B in Northern France

May 19, 2018
tags: ,
  Kim and Steve welcome you to their clothing-optional / Naturist B&B.  It is set in the northern Pays de la Loire on the borders of Brittany and Normandy. The nearest towns are Ernee and Gorron but only 20 minutes from Mayenne, an ideal place for travellers en route to southern France or Spain for a stopover or as a base to discover this beautiful part of France.
After leaving the UK (Shropshire) in late 2015 they purchased a part renovation and have now opened it up as a clothing optional B&B  with campervan parking too. The work involved was difficult but well worth the effort in their opinion.
The property is set in 5 acres with a private garden and nature trail. A proportion of land has been set aside for animals and the growing of produce. Although very rural and peaceful they are only 5 minutes away from a small town with bars, eateries, shops and other facilities.
 Kim and Steve are looking forward to meeting up with naturist guests. For more information and pictures see www.frenchcottagebandb.com and the Facebook page frenchcottagebandb.

TV company looking for naturist families in UK for documentary

July 27, 2017

7Wonder is making a new documentary exploring naturism and family life and is looking for families where the parents or grandparents are passionate and open about their naturist lifestyle but maybe the teenagers in their lives don’t share the same enthusiasm. The programme makers think this is particularly interesting as the teenage years tend to be when we are most body conscious, so it is an interesting juxtaposition when actually naturism is a world of such acceptance. The idea of the documentary is to build a better understanding of naturism, between the family members and also on a national scale.

If you are interested, please contact Laura Watt at 7Wonder: email familycasting@7wonder.co.uk, phone 0203 701 7599 or on Twitter @7WonderUK.

You must be 16 or over to apply.

Gite for naturists in Dordogne, South West France

January 21, 2017

2016_05_21eos-450d0003We are Jim and Nikki and we emigrated from England in February 2016. we were lucky enough to find a lovely property in the beautiful Southern Dordogne countryside. The property is situated in the Perigord region of France, famed for its delicious food and excellent red wines from Cahors and Bergerac.
The gite, La Foret, is ideal for a couple or a single person. It features spacious accommodation for two set in a secluded tranquil setting, with a private deck area, and large pool shared occasionally with us. We only have one occupancy at a time, so there will be no other guests.
This is the perfect base for exploring the beautiful Dordogne countryside, and visiting ancient towns and the amazing rivers of the Lot and the Dordogne for canoeing and other adventures.
The gite is set in 7 acres of gardens, paddocks and surrounded by forest. There is an abundance of bird-life, and Red Kites and Buzzards are regular overhead visitors.
The heated swimming pool is 11 metres by 5 metres and is secluded with a paved surround, ideal for getting that all over tan. There is even a double bed sunbed.
The gite is fully equipped, and we provide you with a welcome pack of local delicacies, and Nikki’s home made goodies. We have hammocks, Boules pitch and lots of garden games as well if you get bored of lying by the pool! The summerhouse is fully equipped with cooking facilities a fridge and music so you can have your own little party in the evening sunshine.
We are naturists ourselves, and we would love to share our little piece of France with others.nikki-s-jim-s-holiday-rental_
The nearest airports are Bergerac (45 mins) and Toulouse (90 mins). Reasonably priced hire cars are easily available at both airports. If travelling by car, Villefranche du Perigord is a one day drive from the ports of Caen, Dieppe and Roscoff. It would make an ideal stop-over on the way to the southern French naturist resorts of Belezy in Provence and Serignan Plage Nature and Cap d’Agde on the Mediterranean coast. La Jenny and the naturist beaches of the lovely Atlantic coast are about 3 hours drive to the west.
