  • Description


    Hello, since june 2010 we're running a camping in the middle of Portugal, near the beautiful mountains of the Serra da Estrela and the hills of the Serra do Açor. Not touristic, but more and more discovered and beloved. A lot of the work we do ourselves, but sometime we need a little help. Depending on the season the tasks are different. Gardening, mowing the grass, painting, cleaning, repairing things, helping in the kitchen. We also have bungalows, apartments, and in the high season, tents for rent.
    The campsite is next to the river Alva, where you swim in the spring and summertime.
    We rent canoe's and bikes.

    We love living is this rural environment. There is also a bar where you can meet the local, friendly people. We don't serve meals, but in the high season we offer snacks and organise one or two times a week a BBQ.

    Here you are in the nature, feel the freedom and enjoy the rural live in central Portugal.

A car is useful if you want to see more of the region. Every year we have volunteers, mostly in the summertime. You need to be handy, self-starting, positive and respectful.
