Superb little site on terraces overlooking the Castelo de Bode ‘lake’ created by the damming of the river Zezere.

There are some 30 pitches of varying sizes … only a few able to take large rigs … so, twin axles or long MH’s probably should phone ahead to check availability … though, no problem when we arrived in mid August. Pitches are mainly brown earth with pine needles or pebbles at the top terrace. Many afford stunning views across the ‘lake’. Pretty well all pitches are well shaded by mature trees, and the entire site is very well maintained.

Two sets of ablutions serve the site … both are situated towards the top of the site, so pitching lower down means more of a climb to the top. English toilets, paper provided and soap dispensers at washbasins … very hot water … good showers, once you work out how to place the head(!) … though only two showers and two toilets per section (2 for men, 2 for women), there were never any queues. The washing machine, at eight euros a wash, is expensive, as campsites go … save it up for your next site, or arrive with nothing needing to go in!

There is an access gate at the bottom of the site to the ‘lake’ and a launch ramp for any canoes/kayaks etc. Several pontoons can be used for swimming/diving from, and the water temperature is warm, due to the dam. There is a massive area of water to explore, if you have a boat … several small marinas in the area. This all means: no need for a pool on site.

What makes this campsite unique is, probably, the best campsite restaurant in Europe. Boasting a cellar of some two hundred wines and gourmet cooking to complement, this is fine dining way beyond the campsite ‘norm’ …. Indeed, the owners like to keep the two ‘businesses’ quite separate and the restaurant tends to take precedence … so if you are seeking campsite service during restaurant hours … be prepared to wait! But, it is definitely worth it!

There is a lovely furnished terrace, set within a beautifully maintained garden, where you can access free wifi, and buy drinks if you want to.

There is a small café restaurant in the village (500 metres) and the UNESCO town of Tomar is some 12 kms … other places of obvious interest are: Fatima (45 kms), Coimbra (70 kms), Lisbon (112 kms) … Porto is three hours.
