This is a very laid-back and friendly site run by a Dutch couple, Esther and Remy. Access is by a steep slope but that is not a problem, and the terraced pitches are a good size, with a large flat area at the bottom. Esthers\' chickens wander about freely and you can buy the eggs; the facilities are good, the swimming pool well kept (but small), and nothing is too much trouble for the hosts, who provide a helpful welcome and information pack in your language. We wouldn\'t particularly recommend the meal in the local restaurant, but that is a small thing. Overall, a super place to relax.
Lovely quiet site with small pool for hot days. Steep entrance onto campsite but not a problem, we had a large sunny pitch. Owners very welcoming and give you a folder full of information in your own language for the duration of your stay. Good electric supply never tripped. Enjoyed our stay, wish we had a scooter to go off exploring as in a lovely area. The restaurant down the road was clean, food well cooked by a delightful old lady who owns it.
Small rural compact site run by a Dutch family, very friendly and welcoming. Great little bar open in the early evening. Nice little pool. Facilities kept spotlessly clean. Amazing countryside around with breathtaking views. We planned to stay two night but had four. Tomar is a nice town and the Convent de Cristo and it's connections with the Knights Templar is a real highlight. Would definitely go back again. Thank you for making us so welcome.
I would like to keep this a secret but I really must tell the world.
A beautiful site surrounded by wonderful scenery.
The site is very natural with grass pitches, trees, shrubs and plants all around and touches of humour everywhere.
Whenever I walk around I see something different...Prettily decorated plant pots on fence poles...a wine barrel here...some ceramic urns there and beautifully painted tables and benches strategically placed.
Then there are happy chickens in there run or roaming free...a parrot up the steps ( a Norwegian Blue, perhaps, but thankfully this one is not "deceased and gone to meet it's maker" !!!).
There's a concrete rabbit sitting on a wall...a frog...a duck and some snails.
The little bar is the centre of attraction in the early evening and everyone is happy and friendly.
The restaurant next door serves a good three course meal with a good sized carafe of wine and also coffee for a very reasonable price..........But, of all the beautiful things about the site......the most beautiful are the young Dutch owners, Esther, Reme and baby Samuel and not to forget their very friendly and knowlegeable colleague Hugo and his lovely canine companions.... Roy and Abbie ( the ancient Labarador ) had a wonderful visit.
Our comedy SatNav made this rather hard to find, but there is an easier route off the IC9 Tomar Norte! Very welcoming Dutch couple run this unusual site and are readily at hand to offer help. On arrival we were shown the only two available pitches for a caravan - note : this is only a small, but very popular site and well attended by their fellow Dutch travellers - may be worth phoning/booking ahead. The site is terraced and choosing to pitch at the lower main area meant that the toilet block was up a small slope, the small pool was up a further steep rough path, and the reception/bar/wifi was up a further steep path. It is a very friendly place and quite quirky with their personal touch all around giving a very happy, relaxed feel to your stay. The hill into/out of the site is not a problem as they tow most caravans our with their own 4x4, also the technique is for entry is to drive up past the site to the church at the end of the road with huge area for turning around in.
The area is great for touring around (ask for their area map of the places to visit) and we thoroughly enjoyed Tomar, Fatima, Batalha, Torres Nova, Almourol, Castelo de Bode (the dam) and Ourem, so many castles, churches, monasteries, and quaint towns and the reservoir.
Very friendly, Dutch run site. Lovely views around the hills and forests. But promotion info a bit dubious. Photo of nearby lake is not nearby and English translation of local walk got us lost almost at once. (I'm sure we shouldn't have ended up on the motorway!) Restaurant in nearby village was very cheap and provided good local, home cooked fare. Relying on buses means ( unless you wish to rise before7am) travel on market day only. Worth it because the market is extensive and the town and convent well worth the visit. Unless you know what you are doing avoid buying the ubiquitous lupin beans.
Idyllic, peaceful campsite run by very friendly and helpful owners. Well maintained, very clean facilities. A place to chill out and relax. A real find. The convent at Tomar is really worth a visit. Good cycle route to lakes but be prepared for hills. Lovely walks through forest. Good value, local food at restaurants a few minutes walk away.Highly recommended site if you want peace and quiet. The only real noise is from unusual but delightful church bells!
We were very much impressed with this idyllic camping, and the care and effort of the kind, cheerful and helpful owners. Until now, it's the nicest camping we've encountered in Portugal, in fact. We enjoyed a 5 km walk in the beautiful hilly surroundings (the owners have instructions prepared to take on a sheet of paper), had delicious fresh bread and eggs from their own chickens (which happily stroll around the campsite), enjoyed delicious large meals in the local cafe (€9 all incl), and smiled a lot at the funny wisdom messages all around the camping. Much recommended!
A really lovely tranquil site. All the amenities were great and very well cared for by a very friendly young Dutch couple who certainly went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable.
Plenty to see in the local area (bus stop just outside the site) especially recommend a visit to the convent at Tomar.
This site is one of those that just has a lovely 'feeling' about it, one to easily recommend.
