Alan Rogers Review

This peaceful, inland site is attractively located on the edge of the village of Sarzedo, some three kilometres from the town of Arganil. It is on a hill among pine trees above the River Alva where you can paddle, fish or canoe. A spacious and well planned site, it is of a high quality for a municipal and prices are very reasonable. There are no marked pitches but young trees define where you can park and there is space for about 150 units, mainly on a flat, sandy grass terrace. There are 75 electrical connections (5-15A). The site is kept beautifully clean and neat and access roads are tarmac. Below the campsite, with gated access from the site via a steepish path and steps, is a municipal swimming pool, a tennis court and a riverside terrace/beach.

From the site you look across at the hill-top village of Sarzedo with its interesting church, and a ten minute walk takes you to its highly recommended restaurant and bar. Down the road is the pleasant little town of Arganil, with a number of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as a bank and a post office. There are views across the surrounding countryside from all parts of the site and there are many quaint and fascinating villages and interesting sites to be visited.


Sanitary facilities are clean and well maintained, with Turkish and British style WCs, controllable hot showers, washbasins (mainly cold water) in semi-private partitioned cabins and a hairdressing area. Note: the block is on the edge of the top terrace and access from the lower part is via steps or a brisk walk. Shop (July-Sept). Bar. Washing machines. TV and leisure room. WiFi over part of site (free).
