General

  • Family-friendly park surrounded by nature
  • Winery tours around a 70-hectare estate within 20 kilometres
  • Terrace restaurant serving daily specials

Well now, just look at this. Spectacular views are yours for the taking at Camping Quinta das Cegonhas, set splendidly on the edge of the Serra da Estrela Natural Park in central Portugal, with tiptop vistas of the surrounding valley.

The landscape around the park is scattered with big boulders, green valleys and several mountain peaks, so you're mighty well sorted for heady (and challenging) hikes and bike routes – and this Gouveia municipality and Guarda province setting is just the ticket too for birdwatching, ancient archaeological sites, medieval village wanders and winery tours: a vast vineyard is under 20 minutes' drive from the site.

After all that, make for the restaurant of an evening for daily specials on the terrace (and make it your mission to munch through them all), or toddle along to the bar for coffee, local wines and small eats. A big barbecue is held for guests every Friday evening in the summer months.

Camping Quinta das Cegonhas has pitches set on terraces around the estate; showers; toilets and a washing-up area. There's also a fine big pool, set like most of the rest of the site among first-rate valley views.

    Close to a village, pretty location and very good facilities lovely restaurant and bar

    Disliked: 

    CASH ONLY which we didn’t realise, caused a bit of trouble when we came to pay for our meal and drinks as it was 9pm at night and the nearest cash machine was a 2 hour walk / 20 minute drive away and we had to be off very early in the morning.

    There was clearly a card machine we could see, maybe it was broken?

    Very quiet and peaceful. Lovely woodland area just off the park for the dogs to have a run around. No marked pitches so loads of room to settle. Very helpful staff, beautiful fresh bread available daily. Loads of walks and not too far from local supermarket.

    Disliked: 

    We had to make a full payment for our stay despite having made a 15% deposit to pitch up. Rieke was most insistent that I made payment in full say I g she hadn't had any payment from Pitch Up.

From the manager...

Hello Gail,

Thank you.

I was outside of my place so I couldn´t give my reaction till now.
I was controling everything and you are right that there is a mistake.

It is like the following:
You booked for 8 days ( I thought 7 days) but you stayd 6 days. So the amount which was left of 155,04 was for 8 days and not for 7 days.
Só you paid 136,80 euro and it must be 155,04 divided for 8 days, is 19,38 times 6 = 116,28 euro.
You paid 20,52 euro to much.

How can I pay you back?

Many thanks for your evaluation.

Kind regards,

Rieke Marien

    Such a stunning location with far reaching views of the county. Exceptional arrival service even though we arrived at lunchtime. He said we can just go choose our own spot and start putting up the tent.
    Lovely pool with shady bar terrace under a huge Kiwi tree. We stayed for supper and then had a lovely buffet breakfast the next morning.
    Showers clean and toilets a plenty.
    Quiet site and other users very friendly.
    Very lovely owners.

    Disliked: 

    The pool was so so cold! Its a big pool and it was a hot hot day. Maybe if there is spare money a solar heater or pool cover would keep it a bit warmer.
    Also I did not know it was cash only. We kept a tab for our meals and drinks and then paid up before we left - thankfully I had just enough in my purse.

Local attractions

As the site lies at the gateway to the Serra da Estrela Natural Park, hiking and cycling trails aplenty are within easy reach to keep you occupied for weeks should you so wish. The natural park is home to Portugal's biggest mountain range (called the Serra da Estrela, oddly enough) and is the country's biggest conservation area, covering about 1,000 square kilometres: look out for badgers, wildcats, otters and wall lizards if off on a nature spotting trip.

A vast vineyard with tastings and extensive tours is about 18 kilometres from the site, run by affable vintner Manuel. The max number on each tour is 10, so if you're seriously thirsting for a trip to a Portuguese vineyard, let the Camping Quinta das Cegonhas know your intentions on arrival and they can book for you.

A short drive from the park will take you to Lago Comprida; hike away from the lake for around four kilometres and you'll find another lake with a manmade concrete and granite structure in it – the Dam of Conchos – that looks (and acts) a bit like a plughole, transporting the lake's overflow down through a 1519-metre tunnel to Lago Comprida: it's quite a sight and well worth the walk.

Historic towns and villages such as Melo, Folgosinho, Gouveia and Linhares are all within easy reach.
