5 km from the authentic village São Bartolomeu de Messines you find Camping Messines, hidden amongst the eucalyptus trees, oleander, cork oaks and green hills.
Within 20 minutes you are in the tourist heart of the Algarve, Albufeira. Camping Messines is ideally located to discover the other Algarve: enjoy the peace and quiet off the beaten path. From your caravan or motorhome you make beautiful walks or cycling tours in the unspoilt countryside of the authentic Barrocal. The campsite can also serve as an excellent base for your geocaching activities, several caches are hidden around Messines. Chat with the goatherd, visit one of the local cafes (1 km) or enjoy a surprisingly good meal in one of the restaurants nearby (1.2 km).
Be amazed by the vibrancy of SB Messines with its covered market, many small shops, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets full of local and regional specialties. In addition, SB Messines also has a post office, banks, kiosks with international newspapers and magazines. Obviously Camping Messines offers everything for a pleasant and comfortable stay.
The entire terrain is flat and fitted with hardening. You choose your own place, there are no defined places created in order to approach the ultimate feeling of freedom as much as possible You are among the evergreen eucalyptus trees providing shade in the hot summer months. At the edge of the field are in some places large cork oaks and olive trees that provide more shade. The campsite is located in the bend of the river Ribeira do Gaviao, which with sufficient rainfall still has water from spring well into summer. Lovely to cool off in the naturally formed pool.
Camperstop Messines has several hiking and biking routes available for you. Once a week we organise a guided walk (min 4 persons). On sunday we can arrange transportation to one of the local restaurants for a meal of goat or wild boar, local specialities. Reservation in advance is neccesary, so be here in time!
If you want it even more adventurous, try and find one of our geocaches. Of course we are glad to help you organise a day of horseback riding, buggy safari or any other activity in the region.
