Review: Samonatura in south Alentejo, Portugal

Review: Samonatura in south Alentejo, Portugal

Our visit to Samonatura, in the very south of Portugal’s Alentejo region, had quite some emotional value. Not only would this be our last stop in the country, the moment when we would leave Samonatura would also be the end of our huge nude European road trip. Well, all good things have to come to an end eventually and as soon as we walked into Samonatura we knew that we couldn’t have picked a better spot to end our journey….

Review: Quinta Do Maral in North Alentejo, Portugal

Review: Quinta Do Maral in North Alentejo, Portugal

Names like Lisbon, Porto, or Algarve often even ring a bell for those who haven’t even visited Portugal before. These are the tourist highlights of the country. The pages of the Lonely Planet guide between which everyone puts a Post-It. But of course, Portugal is much more than that. Those who take the time to get off the beaten track are rewarded with wonderful landscapes, hills and forests, sleepy towns, and historical villages. And best of all, beautiful naturist campings….

Review: Monte Naturista O Barão in south Alentejo, Portugal

Review: Monte Naturista O Barão in south Alentejo, Portugal

When you travel a lot, your mind tends to play a trick mixing up different locations into one. It’s like those weird dreams in which you realise that something is just not right. If only you could put your finger on it. Like that time when we woke up from an afternoon nap in one of our lounge chairs at Monte Naturista O Barão. Still a bit hazy from sleeping under the afternoon sun, we wondered how we ended up…

Review: Cabanadelsol in Algarve, Portugal

Review: Cabanadelsol in Algarve, Portugal

When choosing Portugal as the destination for a nude vacation (or any vacation actually), it’s important to know which part of the country you want to visit. The green north, the warm center, and the long coastline are all very different. Today we’ll take you to the very south of the country. The Algarve region is a preferred destination for both local and foreign tourists. It’s warm weather and impressive landscapes can be enjoyed year-round, even by the naked visitors….

Review: Limanature in the North of Portugal

Review: Limanature in the North of Portugal

Meanwhile, we’ve used the words “this is not an average naturist camping” probably so many times that we start wondering whether there’s even such a thing. What is average anyway? Maybe that’s another reason why we’re so much attracted to naturist places? Because they’re not average at all. It’s too early in the day for philosophical questions like that. We just want to say that Limanature in the very north of Portugal is not an average naturist camping. That much…

Review: Finca Pura Clothing Optional Guest Rooms near Alicante, Spain

Review: Finca Pura Clothing Optional Guest Rooms near Alicante, Spain

If there’s one concept of naturism which we didn’t really find in Europe (until today) it’s clothing optional. It’s a difficult subject altogether, especially seen from a global point of view. In the Americas, “clothing optional” is used to point out nudist resorts and clothing is most often not really an option. In Europe on the other hand, clothing appeared to be an option at most naturist places. At least in some parts or at certain times. In Alicante, we…

Review: Lavinia Naturist Resort near Alicante, Spain

Review: Lavinia Naturist Resort near Alicante, Spain

Naturism in Spain has known its ups and downs over the years. Quite honestly, we had our doubts when we were planning this Big Nude European Trip. Which region should we pick? Which type of accommodation should we aim for? Should we go to Spain at all? The news that a new naturist place, Lavinia Naturist Resort, would soon be opening in the Alicante area drew us over the line. Their first photos looked very promising and we just had…

Review: Sasso Corbo in Tuscany, Italy

Review: Sasso Corbo in Tuscany, Italy

During our nude trip through Italy we discovered a wonderful region in southern Tuscany which hasn’t been overrun by tourists yet. Well, we didn’t actually discover it, Bas and Domenica did about nine years ago. They decided that it was the perfect place to start their own naturist camping Sasso Corbo. A choice with which we couldn’t agree more. The surroundings provide the perfect place for naturists who want to indulge in nature and history and have a great nude…

Review: Grottamiranda near Brindisi, Italy

Review: Grottamiranda near Brindisi, Italy

A visit to naturist resort Grottamiranda, in the southern tip of Italy, meant quite a large detour from our original travel plan. That’s the thing with Italy, it’s not a particularly big country but it’s long. We decided to add Grottamiranda to our itinerary anyway for two main reasons. First of all, because it’s located in the Puglia region (Apulia in Italian) which is one of Italy’s richest archaeological regions and the birthplace of some of the country’s most delicious…

Review: Suncave Gardens near Rome, Italy

Review: Suncave Gardens near Rome, Italy

While naturist vacations in Italy are still somewhat new, Suncave Gardens is certainly the very new kid on the block. Only about a year and a half ago, this first naturist resort in the Lazio region opened its doors. From the first day of our stay, we felt that Suncave was not like most other naturist places we’ve visited before. Yet the atmosphere felt very familiar. Then a memory from EcoParque da Mata in Brazil popped up. Also at Suncave,…
