The web site advises ringing ahead to check availability and we would recommend this as most of the eight pitches were taken by long term winter stayers. We didn't ring but were lucky. We could see why it is a favourite spot, this quiet site is well set out on terraces, the facilities are good (although only two loos and one shower between all, and the outdoor washing up sink had cold water only - not sure why as water is solar-heated). The gravel terraces were a bit tough on awning pegs. It is a 20 minute walk, mostly on a footpath to Moncarapacho for shops, market and cafés. It is a very good location for visiting the coast and we drove the 15 minutes down to Fuseta to walk the dog on the beach as local sheep, goats and poultry meant it wasn't possible to walk our lively dog off lead near the site. The next door builders' yard didn't bother us but we were there over Christmas and all was quiet.

Our second visit to this site which remains a firm favourite for us. As previously the facilities were immaculate and the whole camp site very tidy and well kept.

This is one of very few smaller CL type sites on the Algarve. Its only a few miles in from the coast and you can cycle to Fuseta beach within 15-20 minutes, or drive in 5-10.

Wifi on site which is free, we had a fairly good connection to it at all times.

Otherwise our review from last year covers most aspects - its a really good site, well run, friendly and in a lovely area. Would recommend it highly.

This is the second year we have stayed & have booked for 2014! As regards the builders yard, there is very little noise from it & large trees & bushes virtually hide it. As all caravans & motorhomes have loos & showers I do not understand why it matters that there is only 1 shower & 1 loo each for men & women on site.

This is a perfect site in a perfect spot.

Moncarapacho is a delightful village with many eating places of excellent quality & cheap prices. Coffee at most bars & cafes is 60cents, try finding that price in Britain! Local people very friendly & welcoming.

Plenty of good walking & cycling.

The site is in a small hamlet called Lagoao near Moncarapacho. There are 8 pitches on 4 tiers, all hard standing all with ehu. The owners also have 6 apartments to rent in a large villa on site. A very friendly site with a good atmosphere and plenty of impromptu meets with a few glasses of wine arranged by the campers.

One shower and 2 toilets that are very clean and there is plenty of piping hot water and great water pressure. Washing machine which is charged at €3 per load, no hand washing facilities other than dish washing sink which is at toilets and cold water only. Chem disposal and water taps at entrance. There isn't a motor home point to dump grey water so you do need a bucket or barrel to empty your tanks.

There is a Petang court on site and a beautiful swimming pool. All pitches have sunshine as very little shade cover - great for winter sun.

Owners have satellite dish and you can hook in your Freeview box for €1 per night. Great area for bird watching - on site we saw numerous including Hoopoe and Sardinian Warblers. There is a bar in the hamlet of Lagoao 2 minutes from the site (Rodrigues) which is lovely inside - we went for drinks and were made very welcome by owners.

The site is about 20 minutes walk into Moncarapacho town. Its a small town with a couple of supermarkets, several bars and various other shops. The daily market in the hall has plenty of fresh meat, fish and fruit and veg at good prices. A lovely little town square where you can sit out at the pavement cafes and watch the world go by. We recommend eating in Antonio's - fabulous 3 course meal for two including a carafe of wine for €18 - brilliant service, great food and lovely venue.

The bigger town of Olhao is 4 miles away - all main shops and 3 big supermarkets, plus Rio Formosa boat trips and plenty and restaurants and cafes again all reasonably priced.

Agree with previous review re noise from dogs - barking from nearby villas most nights- which does spoil the tranquillity and went right through the night on several occasions.

The site very popular with long stay winter visitors. We would recommend and at €13 per night is very well priced and there is plenty to see and do in the area - great site well run by Jan and Kirsty, we will use again.

Facilities are very clean, only one toilet for ladies and only one toilet for men, only one shower for all. One washing machine. Catering for 8 units. Good size pitches.

The electric amps are low just enough for fridge and heating on the lowest setting. Anything else it will trip the electrics. Swimming pool available very clean, Boules pitch on site.

The closest village for shops is about 3km away with supermarkets and cafes / restaurants / post office, and banks. Good area for bird, wildlife watching, in fuzeta 8km away.

The only down side of this site is the noise from local dogs, and builders yard across the road. A shame as it spoils what could have been a very tranquil site.
