In the middle of the Montesinho nature reserve, one of the largest nature reserves in Portugal, lies camping site Cepo Verde. This terraced camping site has only forty touring pitches and some rental accommodation units, charming wooden chalets. There are no fixed pitches, but you can choose your own beautiful spot. Enjoy the swimming pool or wander through the mountains or old villages. The camping site has a good restaurant. If you are interested in souvenirs, you can head for the traditional wooden reception building. Here the largest pocket knife in the world is exhibited.

Camping in nature

Cepo Verde is a camping site with many trees. The centuries-old chestnut trees, oaks and cherry trees provide ample shade. At the bottom of the camping site there is a large camping field and higher up you will find the various terraces. Most of the surface is sandy or covered with grass.  As this is a natural camping site, the paths and other parts are not always level.

Entertainment for young and old

Families will thoroughly enjoy themselves. Do not expect bells and whistles, but a small scale entertainment team (English-speaking), some play equipment, a table tennis table and a modest swimming pool. This pool (120 m²) is beautiful and well cared for, but only open from 1 June to 30 August. You can relax on the lawn around the swimming pool. 

Baking bread and picnicking

Provided there is enough interest, the camping site organises activities such as bread baking in a traditional oven, deer spotting walks and picnics at a nearby mill.

Ecological sanitation facilities

The sanitary buildings at Capo Verde are beautiful and recently renovated. There is also a toilet for disabled persons. The showers are eco-efficient, which is in line with the policy of this camping site amidst nature.

Goede terrassencamping met mooi zwembad (apart voor betalen en dat was verrassend hoger dan aangegeven, totaal met ASCI).Harde en stoffige ondergrond. Beperkt uitzicht op de omgeving. Goede uitvalsbasis voor verschillende dorpjes

Reaction from the campsite September 27, 2018

Thanks for your visit and comment. The ACSI rate for 2018 was 13€ on our camping (2 people, campingcar, electricity and a dog). Extras like laundry, wi-fi or swimming poll are not included on the ACSI rate as it is mentioned on all the guides ACSI. Best regards

No se como serán los demás camping de Portugal pero desde luego este deja mucho que desear. Empezamos: En los servicios no hay papel higiénico. Hablando de los servicios, para afeitarte por ejempo te tienes que separar del espejo puesto que los enchufes están detras de uno cuando lo normal es que estén delante para poderte ver la cara cuanto de afeitas. Si hablamos de las escaleras, nula iluminación al igual que si vas por la noche desde el restaurante hacia la parte de abajo donde estarn las \\\"parcelas\\\". Los enchufes para las caravanas, pillan muy lejos. No venden lo elemental, como puede ser por ejemplo huevos, leche, recambios accesorios para los campistas, no hay fruta, no venden hielo. Que menos que una pequeña tienda. Y podía seguir pero bueno lo único bueno, el paisaje.

Hola. Pues en Portugal en la maioria de los campings, que husted desconoce (como bien ha dicho) no hay papel higienico, cada un levara el suyo. No tenemos tienda (supermercado) pero eso lo sabia previamente. Somos un camping sin supermercado. Somos un camping rural, de pequena dimension, para 140 personas maximo. Para todo lo que husted ha mencionado tendra que ir a un supermercado. Lo sabera. Si lo unico bueno ha sido la paisaje entonces lo lamentamos que no tienga usufruido de nuestro restaurante, de nuestra piscina, de nuestra cafeteria e del desayuno. Como puede husted avaliar los servicios com 4,5 ? Son nuevos e todo funciona perfectamente. No lo entendemos. De verdade.

Leider kann man keine Wanderungen direkt vom Campingplatz aus machen.
Der Platz selbst hat schöne Stell-/ Zeltplätze in der Natur.

Thanks for your visit to Cepo Verde and also for your opinion or review. There are several wlaks in the national park all well signed but you have to drive to those specific places. Best wishes

Beautiful countryside, amazing views and walks. Historic villages to visit and local delicacies to eat and drink. Return to peaceful campsite with very friendly and jovial staff who speak almost any language you do. Site needs some improvements to paths and steps but basic facilities are excellent. We were stopping overnight and stayed 5 nights.

Hello and thanks so much for your visit and review. Will make major improvments at the campsite thru the next 2 or 3 years, every year. This is a family businnes since 1993 and every year, the new direction makes improvments.Each thing at the time. Very soon will renovate the swimming pool and also the restaurant (facilities, terrace and menu). We hope you can visit us again so you can experience this new thinks coming on. Best wishes
