Swimming pool and surrounding area

General

  • Small site in private gardens in the village of Janas
  • Five minutes' drive from the coast, 15 from Sintra and 40 from Lisbon
  • Pool, kitchen, sun loungers, outdoor sofas and shaded tables

Days out in Sintra and Lisbon, or coastal times on the beach at Azenhas do Mar? Plonk yourselves down within easy reach of them all at Sintra Camping Garden, a small site in the gardens of a property in the village of Janas.

This is a most strategic spot for outings around the Cascais area – it’s five minutes' drive to the coast, 15 minutes to the fairytale-like buildings of Sintra or around 40 minutes to the vibrant streets of Lisbon. Not brought a car? Flag down a bus for the ride to Sintra (and then on to Lisbon if you so desire) or borrow one of the site’s four bikes for local exploring – they’re free to use (thumbs up for free things…).

There’ll be no need for wheels in order to sort eats – a well-equipped kitchen on site has a gas cooker, microwave and fridge. Supplies can be picked up in the village five minutes away on foot, where there’s a couple of supermarkets and a bakery as well as restaurants and coffee shops if you’d rather eat out.

Back at base there’s plenty of scope for sunbathing, snoozes and snacks – sun loungers, outdoor sofas and shaded tables are scattered around the place for just those purposes. Should the weather get a bit toasty, slope off for a dip in the swimming pool before hosing off in one of the site’s hot showers.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/04 and 30/09 (subject to weather conditions).

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

    Good and very clean facilities (showers, toilets, kitchen and swimming pool). Small site, very friendly owner, helping out with all your questions. Located in a friendly village at walking distance from a café, supermarkets and restaurants. Short drive from the beach and Sintra.

    Disliked: 

    Dogs in the neighbourhood barking at night. Not much can be done about that, so just bring some earplugs if it keeps you from sleeping!

    Great place to stay! Fast internet connection, more than capable of making vpn connections for working remotely. The kitchen has all the supplies you need, blender, microwave, stovetop, utensils, pots and pans.

    Bikes are also available to use for free. If you don’t regularly cycle, you might want to check the route beforehand. Sintra is an incredibly hilly region. 20km in sintra feels like 60 km on “normal” terrain like Berlin or Amsterdam!

    Bathroom is spacious, two showers, double sink action and two additional toilets with their individual room/door!

    The kitchen was very convenient. Super fresh washing area with showers and toilettes. Lovely garden with extraordinary nice hosts. They make you feel 100% welcome and comfoftable. We felt more like visiting good friends than being anonymous customers on a camping. Also the dogs living on the camping were sweet and welcoming. Several nice places to sit down to eat and socialize. The pool was clean and nice warm temperature. Good room on strings to hang wet clothes to dry.
    In total - wonderfully well functioning camping with warm ambience.

Local attractions

To the coast first? A fine choice. Aim for Azenhas do Mar (five minutes’ drive) to wander around a whitewashed seafront village and splash in seawater pools, or make a break to the beach at Praia das Maças (10 minutes), where the waves lend themselves well to surfing or bodyboarding, and there’s another saltwater pool if you decree the water too choppy for a swim.

Stunning Sintra (15 minutes) is an absolute must-visit too – it’s packed with colourful palaces, cobbled streets and cracking views. The Moorish castle, the National Palace and Quinta da Regaleira estate are all worth a bit of your time, as is Pena Palace, a little further out of town (25 minutes from the site).

There’s stacks of stuff to see and do in Lisbon (40 minutes): ride the trams, head up to São Jorge Castle for city views, amble through the Alfama district and seek out sweet treats at the best pasteis de nata bakeries. If you don’t fancy a city day, stay closer to home with a meander around Monserrate Palace and Park (10 minutes) or a stroll and a sip at Colares Regional Winery (five minutes).
