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.

De camping is prima en een fijne plek, met fantastisch eten! Echter...in de 5 dagen dat wij op deze camping verbleven is het sanitair niet één keer schoongemaakt!

Reaction from the campsite November 6, 2018

Bedankt voor je reactie. De kleedkamers waren schoon, maar een van de griffiers deed niet wat ze had moeten doen, deed tegenwoordig echt een slechte baan. Deze medewerker heeft een andere vervangen en we hebben al aangegeven dat deze medewerker niet terugkomt. Het was een slechte nachtmerrie en we verontschuldigen ons voor wat er is gebeurd. Alvast bedankt.

Camping slecht bereikbaar vooral vanuit Galicië. Geen Electrabel aansluiting op de plekken, dit moet van het sanitair gebouw worden gehaald. Zeker grotere caravans en grote campers af te raden. Ik begrijp niet dat dit door de acsi zo wordt gekeurd en beschreven.

Reaction from the campsite September 27, 2018

We try to understand what happened concerning to your visit. I know something by what my emploees told me: you arrived at the campsite and you saw a pitch and also an electrical spot to connect and you didn´t liked it. Then you went away, so you reeally didn´t stay in our campsite. So how can you make an evaluation about \"toilet facilities\"? Or about Accomodation, Food and drink, swimmingpool and every thing else??? You din´t stay at Cepo Verde. You have been here for 10 minutes. We are going to repor this situation to ACSI because you made an evaluation about some topics and you couldn´t do it because you just didn´t try it or experienced it.

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

Deze camping is zeer gastvrij en het eten was ook geweldig
Een echte aanrader als je van rust en mooie natuur houdt en op doorreis naar een andere locatie.

Reaction from the campsite February 2, 2018

Hello Mr Ron Vlieger and thanks so much for your visit to our small and cousy (we hope) campsite. On behalf of our team I thank your for your nice review. The lady that cooks (Mdme. Gorete) will be very happy to know that you liked our food and her way of cooking. Best wishes and hope to see you again.

We werden heel vriendelijk ontvangen, zowel aan de receptie als in het restaurant. Heel mooi gelegen midden in de natuur. Plaats vrij te kiezen, wel voor alle zekerheid voldoende lange elektriciteitskabel meenemen. Nieuwe sanitaire blok, proper onderhouden.

Reaction from the campsite October 24, 2017

Hello. Thanks for your nice review. We always try to keep things better and better and w´ll do so in the next years from now witk improvments at the restaurant (facilities and menu) and also at the swimming pool. This is a family businness and w´ll keep it small but cousy as we think we are doing good. Best regards

Zeer mooi gelegen rustige camping met modern sanitair. Spijtig dat het mooie zwembad betalend is zelfs voor campinggasten.

Reaction from the campsite January 17, 2017

Hello and thank your for your visit and review. As we said about another customer review, we have this small fee of € 1,5 per person, for all day at the swimming pool, as a way of guarantee more quality for those who really want to go there. Sometimes, free swimming poll, get a lot of people/guest and so it could be not so calm for the swimmers.

Wij hebben 'gekampeerd' in de houten hut. Om uit te proberen. Prachtig.
Heel vriendelijke mensen. In het restaurant kan je heel goed eten. De houtkachel was aan, heel gezellig. De omgeving is ideaal om te wandelen en te ontdekken. Het echte Portugese leven in de mooie dorpjes. De natuur is echt heel mooi.

Reaction from the campsite October 24, 2017

Thank you so much for your visit and nice review. W´ll try to keep oN going with better things every year. Next improvemnts will be done at the restaurant (facilities and menu) and also at the swimming pool. Best wishes
