This is a short review because we didn't stay too long at the site: not the camp's fault. This is near the ancient city of Guimaraes, the first capital of Portugal, which is a very interesting town with plenty of restaurants, bars &c. From the main square a cable car (telefericos) travels up a hillside to Penha where there are churches, shrines and the like and the campsite (be warned, the telefericos doesn't quite get to the camp so you need to walk the last couple of hundred metres); alternatively there are narrow winding roads, occasional buses or, as a last resort, taxis.
There is probably a very good view from the top of Penha - I don't know because it was either raining, foggy, or immersed in cloud while we were there! The site is on several tiers with clean toilets &c and sorted recycling facilities (quite unusual in Portugal). There is a bar/cafe/television lounge which mainly sells snacky food and breakfast but the young woman running the counter was happy enough to cook omelettes, bacon and the like.
There were children's play areas and lots of space for walking around in - I might have tried it if it had stopped raining. Everyone said they had never known a year like it for rain so this would make a good base for exploring the wider area.
