Vacations, long weekends or weekend trips are not always associated with big hotels or expensive resorts. With that in mind, we were looking for cabins where a night would cost you less than 100 euros and even found an option for 36 euros per night.
They are just like in the movies: isolated, in the middle of the forest, but close to everything and contactless, and some even have Wi-Fi. If you are planning to spend a few days on a romantic getaway for two or even with your family, you will be able to go outside.
Located in the north of the country, as well as in the Alentejo and Algarve, these Airbnb lodges are ideal for hot or cold weather and are fully equipped for your every need.
