Villa Oleander in Carvoeiro is a 2-bedroom modern villa with a pool and secluded garden, available for holiday rentals from UK-based naturists Mel and Awen.

Cabana del Sol near Alte is run by French couple Serge and Patricia. A spacious and comfortable modern chalet, it has four double-bedrooms, a lounge-diner, outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna and gardens, with scenic rural views. Accommodation is on a self-catering basis, but with breakfast included.

A naturist holiday might not be for everybody, but if you do dare to bare in Portugal, you’ll find it accepted as being perfectly natural. Portuguese have a very relaxed attitude to nudism which lends to tourists feeling at ease and wanting to return to Portugal nudist areas.
