Slow is beautiful

welcome to burros & artes

Who we are

The Burros & Artes passion-project started in 2008 founded by resident artist Elsa and animal lover Sofia that had the great vision of connecting the rhythm of donkey tours with the mindfulness of art.
Since 2022 ceramic enthusiast André and nature explorer Steffi have joined the journey bringing their hearts and a fresh presence.

What we do

We offer donkey tours, walks and experiences for all hikers, families and adventure seekers.
Grounding even further we also give pottery workshops, ceramic classes and other artistic events.
Check out our handicraft shop to bring home a piece of this memorable experience.

Where we are

You can find our big-eared friends in Vale das Amoreiras, Aljezur, where you can feel the lush nature of the hills of Algarve.
The artistic Atelier where we showcase the art of Elsa and give the ceramic classes and workshops is in Camping Serrão, Aljezur.

VIP Experience

Donkey Trour + Pottery Workshop

A Journey of Harmony with Nature

Immerse yourself in the serenity of nature and the warmth of creativity with our exclusive VIP experience at Burros & Artes.

This enchanting adventure begins with a leisurely guided donkey tour through the lush green surroundings of our farm, where you'll have the opportunity to connect with the gentle giants that call our sanctuary home. As you stroll alongside these lovable creatures, you'll be surrounded by the soothing sounds of nature and the vibrant colors of the Costa Vicentina landscape.

Upon return, indulge in a pottery workshop on a traditional potter's wheel, led by our expert artisans. Feel the tactile sensation of clay beneath your hands as you shape and mould your own unique piece of art. This is a chance to slow down, unwind, and tap into your creative side, all while being inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds you.

Whether you're a nature enthusiast, an art lover, or simply looking for a unique and rejuvenating experience, our VIP program is the perfect way to unwind and connect with the world around you.
