  • Small family-friendly site in the Montesinho Natural Park
  • A 25-minute drive from the medieval town of Bragança
  • On-site restaurant serving homemade local meals and snacks
It’s a truly green and pleasant part of the world up here in the north-eastern corner of Portugal. If it’s peace and quiet you seek, you’ll find it in spades both at Parque de Campismo Cepo Verde itself and in the surrounding Montesinho Natural Park, one of the country’s largest protected areas. Choose to rest your head here for quiet pitches in the woods, shaded by native chestnut, cherry and oak trees: this spot was once a Roman settlement and a mighty fine location they picked too for mountain views… These days it’s an equally enviable locale as you can amble straight out onto several of the park’s marked trails to explore on foot. Push yourself to the end of your hike safe in the knowledge that a refreshing dip in the outdoor pool awaits upon your return to the site (a small charge applies for pool use). A playground, sports area, basketball and table tennis are also on site if any energy remains. Appetites duly worked up, there are communal grills for you to sizzle up dinner, or you can wander over to the restaurant to pick from its menu of homemade traditional faves such as wild boar, local cheeses and chestnut pudding. A woodburning stove keeps things toasty on chillier nights. Among the site’s amenities are a washing-up area, a washing machine, a chemical disposal point, a toilet block with hot showers and accessible facilities, and plenty of taps with fresh springwater. Wifi is available in the restaurant and main building, and there’s a small shop there too that will save you having to lug your own wood, charcoal and gas to the site.

Electric optional grass and earth tent or trailer tent pitch

Liked: L'aménagement du territoire la décoration tant des chalets que de l'accueil, la piscine, l'éclairage sur tout les emplacements, l'eau potable vers les emplacements, les sanitaires ultra propres et super pratiques ( les crochets dans les douches, miroire, prise, rangements). C est très bien réfléchit et soigné tout pour être au petit soins des voyageurs! C est top. Bravo pour le travail !!!! Et on mange super bien au restaurant du camping!!! Top!!!

Disliked: Deux seules bémols: - Pas de possibilité de rentrer après 22h, même à pied en laissant la voiture d hors. - Le personnel est clairement surchargé. Dommage, car difficile d'avoir les informations.

From the manager: Hello. Thanks so much for having visited and stay with us. Sorry about the dust, but in July/August if the weather gets to much hot it might create some dust because the gravel ways dry a lot in some parts fo the campsite.

Sonia S. The reviewer booked through Pitchup.com

Electric optional gravel and earth motorhome pitch

Liked: Pitches are huge and the campsite is well maintained. Toilets and showers very clean. The pool was amazing and very quiet at night.

Disliked: No toilet paper nor paper towels were replaced in the toilets. Restaurant overall good but if you’re portuguese and decide to eat Feijoada, don’t!! It’s literally beans and meat which was quite dry. I was expecting a variety of chouriços but none there so was a bit disappointed.

Recommend to friends Visit again

From the manager: Hello Sonia Serra. Thank you for your review and comment. Very sorry that toilet paper and paper towels dispensers were not refilled by our staff on a specifici moment of your stay. It was certainly a fault of our staff. We would be very grateful if you had reported it to us at the time so that we could have corrected it when you verified it, in that precise moment. About the "feijoada": we will check out what with the kitchen, something that could be improved. Kind regards. Cristiana

Local attractions

Wander out from the site and you’ll quickly be able to pick up some of the well-marked trails that run across the Montesinho Natural Park. In summer, pick cherries as you go, and in autumn join groups to learn about foraging for mushrooms. Ask on site for details of hikes that suit your abilities and interests – perhaps drive the half hour to the village of Dine for a walk that takes in ancient lime kilns and a neolithic cave. Also half an hour away is Quintanilha, where you can take a walk along the banks of the Maçãs river to a bathing spot to cool off in the clear water. Guadramil, 50 minutes’ drive from the site, is the place to go if you’d like to spot wildlife such as deer and wolves. It’s worth heading out of the park for a day to visit the town of Bragança, around a 25-minute drive away. Start with a wander around the medieval castle and citadel before heading over to the Romanesque Domus Municipalis; also in town are a military museum and the Iberian Museum of Masks and Costume.
