We are currently realizing our dream in the middle of nature in central Portugal and would like to share this beautiful piece of earth with you.
If you are looking for a few quiet days in nature​,​
is right here. This place with a wide view of the surrounding mountains and at night usually a great starry sky is perfect for relaxing and doing nothing.

If you get bored here and need more action, the region is also ideal for climbing, bouldering, hiking, fishing at the lake or a quad excursion.
Visits to restaurants or browsing through the weekly market are of course also possible in the nearby village.

Our property is currently still in the construction phase and therefore not yet perfect, but it is not a construction site either. We currently offer 3 different pitches with a great view over the Rio Zêzere, which can then be visited and selected on site. Tent pitches are located on the lower terraces. That means a small descent is necessary.
The property has its own small spring from which smaller water tanks could also be filled.
In addition, after a short descent, you can simply hop into the lake for refreshment, which is of course particularly valuable in the warm months (sturdy shoes are recommended).

Please note: Our property is a bit off the beaten track and does not have a normal tar road (see pictures). But don't worry, our old VW Crafter without all-wheel drive makes it up and down the "hill" even with these road conditions ;-).

We feel very honored to have been Fabienne and Patrick's first Campspace guests. They were very welcoming and accommodating hosts. Their property is really beautiful and it's an amazing place to spend a few nights. It is really inspiring to learn about their plans and dreams and the work they have done so far! They offer different places to camp with a camper (the drive down is a bit adventurous but nothing to worry about) or tent. There is a compost toilet with amazing view. It is possible to hike down and go to the lake. There are also lots of other things to do and visit by car, but we preferred to relax in the shade (as it was very hot) and enjoy the view :-)

How was the contact with the host?
Quick to respond and picked us up near their domain so we wouldn't get lost, really friendly and helpful during our stay, it was very nice meeting them!

Tips for new guests?
We recommend a stay here!
