  • 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.

Disliked: Nothing

Unpowered grass tent or trailer tent site

Liked: Todo. Es un lugar precioso donde se puede desconectar, por las noches se ven las estrellas es impresionante. Hay un montón de sitio para acampar, etc. Los baños tienen papel y están limpios, duchas normalízala pero limpias. Tienen lugar para cocinar si no llevas camping gas (hay que pagarlo, lo único), también tienen barbacoa y tienen restaurante. La piscina es chulisima. Para lo que pagas está fenomenal. A 10 minutos en coche, más o menos, hay un súper. En el establecimiento venden pan y fruta, tienes que reservarlo un día antes. Nos lo pasamos genial, si volvemos a Portugal seguro que volvemos a este camping.

Liked: Absolutely brilliant site set in beautiful countryside. The stars at night are amazing. Came for one night staying longer. The staff really friendly, the pool and bar perfect. The pitches are set out on terraces so it feels as you’ve got lots of space. Would definitely recommend.

Powered grass tent or trailer tent site

Liked: Met some good people at the site. The showers and toilet facilities worked and were clean. Bar was readliy available and glasses were taken from the freezer. A hard stand available for my motorcycle.

Disliked: The lady on reception was most unhelpful, to the point of unlikeable. She said she did not take debit / credit cards, despite a card machine being on display on the desk behind her and told us to go to a cash point 6km away (we were on motorcycles in close to 35 degree heat and did not know the area). Some businesses do not accept non Portuguese cards due to charges, but no were not offered the chance to even pay a surcharge. We were told everything during our stay would have to be paid in cash. She also questioned why I paid a deposit through PitchUp to book a place, instead of just turning up ! We said we wanted an evening meal upon arrival at 3pm and she understood, asking if we wanted "meat or fish" but did not pass the message on to the kitchen and no food was ordered for meal time. Luckily the kitchen people manage to rustle something up, and pulled out the stops. The ground to place the tent was was very difficult to get pegs into, not just dry, but with aggregate below the pitch.

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.
