Alan Rogers Review

Beirã-Marvão is a family run campsite close to the Spanish border, in the Serra de São Mamede National Park. This is very much rural camping and the Dutch owners’ aim is that the campsite should have negligible impact on the surroundings. After the attractive traditional reception building, a rough track climbs to the hill-top where there are touring pitches on roughly-cut terraces between olive trees. The track then descends to an open field, with more olive trees, where there are further pitches. There is space for 20 touring units and 10 tents, with 30 electrical connections (6/10A) available; long cables, and possibly levelling blocks, may be needed in places.

The surrounding National Park is a haven for walkers and birdwatchers, many rare raptors nest within the park and the owners will provide details of walks in the area that take advantage of viewing points. There are also historical sites and a rich cultural heritage. Bicycles can be hired with suggested routes of varying levels of difficulty. This is a relatively green area and beautiful fishing lakes are to be found close by. There are also numerous historical sites including the hill-top towns of Marvão and Castelo de Vide. Nearby Beirã has an impressive railway station which was a frontier post designed to impress arrivals on the now defunct line from Madrid to Lisbon; the ceramic murals depict typical scenes from the Alentejo region. Ammaia has the remains of a Roman city.
