  • Accommodation


    What we offer:

    Your accommodation depends of the time of the year and availability; A caravan in the cold months or a fully equiped tent in the summer. If you bring your own caravan/camper or tent, we provide you a pitch on the campground.

    Running a campsite is exciting and challenging. We are always busy with the guests and the camping which we love to do. But this leaves us little time left. That's why we provide you the kitchen tools (gas cooker, fridge, pots and pans, cutlery, etc) so you can prepare your own meals. If you don't have your own transport, we can help you to get to Tomar to do your shoppings.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    To get around, your own transport will be usefull. If not, there's a (poor) bus connection from the campsite to the city. When we go out for shopping, you are welcome to come with us. Tomar is just 15 minutes by car and has everything you need, including a trainstation if you wish to explore more of Portugal.
