Alan Rogers Review

This is an attractive and peaceful valley site with a separate naturist area. A traditional tiled Portuguese-style entrance leads you down a steep incline into this excellent, well maintained site, which has a village atmosphere. With continuing improvements, the site has been developed over the years by the Dutch owner. It is spread over two valleys (which are real sun traps), with many of the 500 partially terraced pitches marked and divided by trees and shrubs (oleanders and roses). Others are less well defined among trees. There are 6/16A electricity connections to 270 pitches. A small stream (sometimes dry) meanders through the site.

A very popular site for summer and winter sun worshippers, it is within easy driving distance of a number of attractive resorts. The village and beach at Salema are within walking distance down the road and the many fine beaches in the region provide ample opportunities for diving, swimming and fishing. To the west is the town of Sagres, associated with Henry the Navigator, and the Cabo de São Vicente, the headland at ‘O Fim do Mundo’ (Portugal’s wild and unspoilt Land’s End). To the west are several fashionable little resorts and then the bustling yet historic town of Lagos.


Four modern, spacious sanitary blocks, well tiled with quality fittings, are spotlessly clean. Washbasins with cold water, hot water (on payment) to showers and to some washbasins in cubicles. Washing machine. Excellent facility for disabled campers. Gas supplies. Well stocked shop. Restaurant, bar and takeaway (1/3-15/10 with restricted opening in low season). TV (cable). Games room. Bicycle, scooter, moped and motorcycle hire. WiFi over part of site (charged).
