Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.

Rent kayaks, bikes and watery equipment on site to tackle the surface of the lake if you're at Albufeira do Maranhão Camping Park on an energy surge; more of the active same along with boat tours and jetskiing is at Lake Montargil about 20 kilometres from here.
But if you're around for a restful stay, amble peacefully towards the village of Avis, a place that took an important role in Portugal's history and which has the architectural heritage to prove it. It's called the village of warrior monks as it was donated by Alfonso 2 to Fernão Anes, master of Portugal's only military order, and is filled with religious buildings such as the Convent of St. Benedict of Avis, the Pelourinho, the castle walls and its towers.
Anyone staying in Portugal within a couple of hours' drive of Lisbon should also get there with some immediacy, and Albufeira do Maranhão Camping Park is about an hour and a half away. Among the many recommendations are the Museu do Teatro Romano/Roman Theatre Museum, Lisbon City Museum or just wandering around drinking in Lisbon's café culture – but do have at least two days in the city to find your own faves.
