This site is high up in the hills and the pitches are perched on a ledge, fanning out, each with a wonderful view. Every pitch is level and has water, electricity, drain point and an ingenious fold away table. They are separated by rustic wood fences with the taps hidden away under a cover that looks like a bird nesting box. The site does look a bit sparse but young trees have been planted. There are good clean hot showers but only cold water to the outdoor washing up point which had no light. Antonio is helpful and smiling but monosyllabic in English.

It is very quiet up here, just the distant howl of hunting dogs, and there is a brilliant night sky with the lights on the coast in the far distance. There are lots of tempting mountain tracks to walk but many come to a dead end at a house so it is worth taking advice for a longer walk (the right one will take you up onto the high point at the top of the valley). There is an easy walk down into beautiful Caldas de Monchique, the last bit along the road. Wild boar abound making it very exciting dog- walking country!

What a wonderful site, as previously mentioned the site and facilities are top notch. The owner has certainly thought about what motor homers need very carefully and provided it.

Each pitch is self sufficient with clean water, waste disposal and electricity. Paving stones are laid In two straight lines to park on, no sinking here.

A washing machine is available for 3 euros a wash, alternatively use the laundry sinks for a work out whilst doing your washing. Washing lines are provided.

Come with supplies as there are no shops readily accessible.

An exceptional site with stunning views and plenty of walking opportunities

We were recommended to this one by word of mouth. About 20 minutes drive from the main coast road up towards Monchique and beautiful scenery all the way.

The campsite is shown by a sign on the main road just before the Caldas de Monchique. You turn on to what appears to be a sand track - it is and you follow it for about a mile - absolutely fine for even bigger motorhomes.

The site has space for 14 vans. The pitches are all hard standing and not the widest - you would struggle to put an awning out within it touching the van next door. However that isn't a negative - the set up is very much in the format of camper / motorhome without 6 foot of outside area next to you - but you have plenty of space in front of the van for sitting etc.

The toilets / showers are immaculate - piping hot water, good water pressure in showers and toilets have seats and loo paper. Three showers each for ladies / mens so never a queue. Chem disposals, ehu and running water and drainage on every pitch. Washing machine costs at €3 and also handwash available.

There isn't a shop on site and nearest for supplies is a good 3 miles away so you need provisions or be mobile to get out and about.

From the site there are plenty of walks on forest type tracks, fairly hilly but beautiful views well worth getting out for. From the site you can see right down to the coast and the sea on a clear day.

The town of Monchique is worth a visit - about 5 mile drive and easy to park in town. Cobbled streets and old buildings plus some nice cafes and touristy shops. They sell the local brew of Medronho there - powerful and worth a try. From there continue up the hills to the viewpoint Foia - the highest point on the Algarve and you can see for literally hundreds of miles. Loads of parking right at the top for campers, motorhomes, a shop and 2 restaurants up there.

Back to the site itself - well run and maintained. The owner doesn't take bookings you just turn up. If he has no space he will apparently squeeze the odd extra one in.

This is a brilliant little site and for €12. 50 per night all in we cannot fault it.
