    1 pitch

It's a familiar and cosy campspace located in our garden, but filled with amenities. It's quiet, peaceful, but well located. From our garden you can ride a bike or walk to the beach. As a guest, you have access to a shared but complete kitchen (with stove, oven, fridge, microwave, coffee machine, plates, pans, cutlery and a washing machine). For cooler days, you can enjoy the indoor pool with heated and salted water, which is open all year long. There's a barbecue area with a picnic table to enjoy a relaxing meal surrounded by nature. All the pitches have access to electricity and water. In the washing sink the water is drinkable.

The campspace is well located, only on a 2km walk from the seaside. Although in a nature environment, it's only 4km from the city centre (Vila Nova de Gaia).

This campspace is ideal for those that want to visit the Portwine cellars and the city of Oporto.

Tell us about your experience
Everything is taken care of on this campsite. Spacious places, great swimming pool for the kids (salt water no chlorine), kitchen to use and outside area to sit and bbq. Near to Porto with taxi service from the camping and back. Great for a couple of days to visit the city and nearby beach.

Good! Very friendly and helpful. Can tell you what places to go and visit. Speak English very well.

Very nice camping place in a beautiful garden. It has everything you need for a perfect holiday. They have a heated pool, different lounges and seats to chill, a barbecue area, a kitchen and living room with many facilities free to use. Washing machines and coffee pads for only 1€. And of course electricity, water fill up station, recycling station and dumping area. The bathroom and toilets got cleaned twice a day and were very spacious and comfortable.

How was the contact with the host?
Overall the staff was very friendly and helpful. They were always here to help and offered a shuttle to Porto. The reception offers a welcome drink and gift and also has a small gift shop. They offer free city maps and more information on what you can do during your trip here.

Tips for new guests?
I highly enjoyed my stay but I definitely recommend reservation. The spaces are in great demand and nearly always booked. Check-in is from 2 pm and check-out until 11 am.
